Poker Words - A Poker Blog

Mostly a recount of my poker exploits along with a bunch of random other stuff just for fun.

Tilt is debuts on ESPN tomorrow. I haven’t really heard too much about it aside from the gagillion promo commercials on ESPN, but I’m still looking forward to it. I can almost guarantee that the show will be a hit regardless of how good it actually is. I think a pretty easy formula for success is throw in some poker, and some hot women and some conflict with potential for violence, and you have a hit show. Its pretty much the same formula for Vegas on NBC. That show had some pretty crappy acting and horrendous scripts, but people, myself included, watched it because, after all, it was about Vegas. The hot women didn’t hurt either. They definitely trumped lame plotlines anyway.

I watched Vegas for a while, up until the security guy beat up two ninja assassins. That was a bit too much, and put the show over the edge for the amount of crap I will watch. That and I got finally got cable so I had more than two choices of shows to watch. Now maybe I don’t know much about ninjas because all I learned about them I got from (hilarious site by the way) but I’m pretty sure that two of them could easily dispatch with a lowly security guard with whatever training he had. The point is that people still watch the show and they’re going to watch Tilt also. Unless the entire world gets burnt out on poker, which, has to happen eventually, I think this show will be in your face just about every time you turn in the TV.

I’m still looking forward to it though.
