Nat Geo "Inside Underground Poker"

Not sure if this is the right section to post this in, but i was browsing the guide, and saw there is a show on Nat Geo tonight called "Inside Underground Poker". seems to be covering poker in NYC.

"Across New York City, an underground economy exists that pulsates with danger, allure and adrenaline — generated by clandestine high-stakes poker games. One of the top games in the city is run by Mikey Tatts, who has cultivated an eclectic roster of players and friends, including Wall Street brokers, doctors, business owners, drug dealers, pimps and people who make their living playing cards. "

Re: Nat Geo "Inside Underground Poker"

I was at a random NYC club when a Nat Geo filming crew came in for "american gypsies". It was so random and funny. Fake money, fake arguements, fake everything. They just filmed at a table in the corner while the rest of us played thinking "wtf is a film crew doing here". They later told us what it was for. Oh and we all had to fill out those disclosure sheets for our faces to be visible or blurred.

Groundbreaking, more good exposure for the game we all love.

Is this really good exposure, or is that a touch of sarcasm. Can't see much good in this!

Anytime i see underground this or that, it sounds like a how prohibition doesn't work story. Is my glass half full? Probably. Will be watching though.

I watched the 2nd clip and there was a fight between two guys. Looks like another fake reality show.

Re: Nat Geo "Inside Underground Poker"

Nat Geo is part of the "Digital Preferred Tier" of my cable plan. Apparently Im not paying enough money to my cable company for me to access this "tier". Guess I am ass out. Unreal.
