Thumbs up new Gus Hansen on backgammon videos

we filmed a series of 15 second promo stings with Gus Hansen in Vegas last weekend to help promote the current broadcasts of the WSOB shows on Game TV in Canada and Poker Channel Europe.

I think they are very cool and thought you would like a preview of a couple of them - so hope you like them too! Gus is as always, brilliant on camera.

Both videos opening up interesting areas of discussion as well..!

Re: new Gus Hansen on backgammon videos

I really like the backgammon shows themselves and find Gus' commentary during the matches to be excellent.

However the short parts during the show where Gus is trying to use his super-serious voice and these little clips where he is doing the same thing are some of the most unintentionally hilarious things I've seen.

He reminds me of Derek Zoolander.

It's great to have Gus promoting backgammon. Wish we could get a BG invitational tournament of former poker players, that would probably attract some interest from the poker community, maybe even get a few people to try their hand at backgammon.

Gus Hansen, Phil Laak, Huck Seed and Abe Mosseri are all really good at backgammon. Gus being the best probably.
