    JP, you should be able to get it on RTE's website, www.rte.ie, under the 'RTE Player' link probably from tomorrow.


    :D

    My god that was so difficult to watch. Every last bit of it. If that was my first time watching televised poker I would never have watched it again.

    Trust rte to make ****e out of it. And that presenter I'd rather watch paint dry or lsten to drunks in a karoke bar. :mad:

    I had to laugh when the presenter asked the blonde bimbo:
    So, what happened?
    straight after she was knocked with QQ versus AA.
    As far as I remember he put the same question to everyone eliminated.
    :rolleyes:

    I was hoping for someone to retort:
    Why, were you in the jacks or something?

    An idea for doke maybe?

    A couple of points, how hard would it be to show everyones hole cards, this is important imo, not just the players who are in the pot. Also, why so slow on the graphics with the calls and raises, this was the same for the IO coverage iirc, must be the same production company. At least they didn't spend 5 mins going over the ranking of hands. As for DP, he annoyed me a tad on the open coverage but i watched it last night with the mindset that he doesn't really take himself that seriously and it made it much more bearable.

    didnt watch this

    1. Who was the presenter? Was it DP Fitzgerald? I take it he was ****e?
    2. Who was the commentator? Was it Emmet Kennedy? Was he any use?

    This show was not aim at the pro or even boards members, it was create to attract new players to the game and make it look exciting and easy to play which it achieve. If you want to watch top class poker then watch the online games or live streams from events, but don't pick up the remote and expect to see top class poker on a 1 table sit and go with blinds going up every 18 hands.

    I think the show will attract new fish to the game and thats good for poker and players alike.

    I would ban Andy Black from Television though, he was terrible and look a mess.

    Was it my imagination or at the beginning of the show - maybe 15 mins in - I could see the presenter talking to Padraig at the bar WHILE it was commenting on the hands?

    YES, THANK GOD I'M NOT GOING MAD, I thought the excessive drinking day I had was catching up with me, Parky was sitting on the chair at the bar looking over his shoulder whilst simultaneously he was somewhere else commentating on the hand. I was waiting for him to say, "ooh ooh, there's me at the bar, I thought I was off the drink, why you double crossing, what will I tell the missus" but then I switched it off to watch Family Guy.

    Whenever you start doing a bit bad, jump under the table and come back up dressed as Captain Chaos, saying "Dun dun DUNNNN!!"
    and refer to yourself as HIM! for the rest of the show

    Spot on, it was a programme designed to be attractive to newish players hence stars involvement. The commentator was err.... not an attractive women in her 20's (though he had the hairstyle) which is a big mistake imho.
    Ban Andy from TV because he looked a mess? Jo Brand and Vanessa Phelps had better prey you never become a tv commissioner!

    try get a meow in instead of a now? like on super troopers.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,610 ✭✭✭big_iain


    The issue is not whether Doke should bling blang blow but why is he not on as a pro.

    Considering you can smoke these 'has been' pro players anyway.

    I don't want to watch Kerry Katona playing Serena Williams at tennis, I don't want to watch a randomer playing Kasparov at chess, and I certainly don't want to watch some z list blond, an ex rugger, and two randoms playing Marty Smyth and Andy Black at poker.

    Doke it is your boards duty to do something to liven this up. Something along the lines of Barry Greenstein's "Lol donkaments" for charity. I'd pay quite a lot for you to knock DP Fitzgerald the f*** out, but I understand if 9am is too early for that kind of behaviour.

    Any suggestions for the hero Doke?

    The have you seen my new shoes trick deserves a televised debut imo.

    1. Yes DP was the presenter and he was up to his usually standard. i.e. total clueless s***e.
    2. Yes I think the commentator was Emment Kennedy and he was okay as was he's co commentator Padraig.

    hes like to card every card the king BALL or 4Ball etc, trying a bit too hard i think but could do worse. he was okay.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 371 ✭✭SpencerJames


    cant see it anywhere online??

    also glad to see that the K Ball is catching on, but hopefully not too much!


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,013 ✭✭✭kincsem


    X-factor poker. But you just have to watch the train-wrecks.


  • Registered Users Posts: 872 ✭✭✭doke


    I thought Emmet was very good as the straight man. He avoided the pitfall that a lot of commentators paired with Padraig fall into: try to out-pisstake the pisstakemeister, resulting into the whole thing descending into 2 schoolboys giggling at each other's jokes while some poker happens in the background.

    Padraig was very good too, managing to get the balance right between the viewing public who would know a bit about poker, those who wouldn't but would like to learn a little, and those who don't.

    It's not up yet . . . well I hope that's just the case. If RTE put it up you should find it here.
