Re: Who is the worst TV Poker host/commentator?

Robert Williamson III is so terrible. I literally had to mute it while I was watching the most recent million dollar cash game.

Ali Nejad would have gotten my vote 2 years ago but now he just seems awesome for some reason.

^this, this, this
the live streaming commentary was going along just great than Douchemuth showed up and just had to make it all about him.

Ali is just fine, just lets the players & the cards do most of the work which I like and does have enough funny jabs to keep the show upbeat.

Don't mind Norm McD too much, he's added some pretty good lines, just don't show the guys fake hands at the intro

Norm Chad has gone on too long IMO, he's funny enough but I think it's time to upgrade if Gabe's available.

Re: Who is the worst TV Poker host/commentator?

Jesse May was the worst commentator but something happened to him. (kidnapped by aliens and taught how to play poker???)
I was really impressed by him when I watched the live stream for the Big Game, he was good in Premier League Poker IV and The World Open series.
He is usually coupled with a professional player and the questions he asks are great.

I don't mind people who are placed there for entertainment purposes, like Lon & Norman Chad, Norm McDonald , they are not to be expected to provide decent analysis. I find people like RW III, Mike Sexton who provide often bad analysis less tolerable.

Yes a while ago he was downright annoying, too enthousiastic and acting like a flop that gives both players big hands is a huge drama, like the end of the world.
But lately it's pretty enjoyable when he does dual commentary with solid players like Dusty. He's always asking questing like 'surely he will call but is there any value in raising ?' making the pro commentator always talk about strategy and what they'd do. I like that too, it's like getting free training.

Mike Sexton AINEC

[x] Talks like a hillbilly with marbles in his mouth

[x] Says the same useless crap over and over (wired pair, the type of hand you love to see flops with, he should raise and find out where he's at, etc.)

[ ] I learn poker strategy from him

[x] Karate Kid hand jive

Jesse Maye. Annoying as hell. Can't finish a sentence without giggling. Even sentences that aren't remotely funny. Yuk.

All of them. I'd rather watch the players, maybe with a little background music.
