The World Poker Tour and its (Poker)Fish
Paul Kammen
For two hours each week, poker players and fans around the world tune into the World Poker Tour on the Travel Channel.
The WPT turned the poker world upside down when it began, fanning huge interest in the game and making poker on TV a ratings success, thanks in part to the advent of hole cameras and a production that was able to capture the thrill of the game in its most exciting form, no limit Texas Holdem.

No Bracelets, Just Benjamins on GSN's
"High Stakes Poker"

Paul Kammen
High Stakes Poker made its debut on Monday, January 16th on GSN.  The game played is the one millions of Americans are now familiar with: no-limit Texas holdem, but the format is completely different.  There is no trophy, no platter with wads of hundred-dollar bills placed on the table when action is heads-up, no champagne toast to a champion.  Instead, itís all about the Benjamins.

"Heartland Poker Tour"
Shows More Down-to-Earth Poker

Paul Kammen
A college student moves all-in with AQ suited in heads-up poker play, and gets called by a construction worker holding KJ offsuit.  The two players are surrounded by lights, and an audience, and know that hole cameras reveal what they hold to the audience at home.  On the line is a top prize of $30,000, bragging rights, and a brief reign in the poker spotlight of "flyover country."

FSN Serves a Poker Smorgasbord
Paul Kammen
2004 Superbowl Sunday brought us,  besides football,  the grand finale of Poker Superstars,  a TV show made by Fox Sports Net  (FSN).  During Thanksgiving 2003,  FSN broadcast a poker tournament within 24 hours of its happening,  the fastest poker results the U.S. had seen.  Later on,  FSN was the first to show a live poker tournament from the U.S.,  held at the Turning Stone Casino.  This network continues to serve dishes of poker as big and appealing as its sports offerings,  and the poker is clearly not a side dish.  It's part of a smorgasbord.

Do Winning Streaks Exist in Poker Games?
Ashley Adams
Proper poker strategy often involves finding the right answers to the wrong questions, as a query from a reader about streaking revealed.
I received an email the other day from a reader interested in knowing whether I believed in "streaks" or not. He wasnít referring to the 1970s phenomenon of grown men running through a public area buck naked. He was asking about streaks of good or bad cards in poker, specifically Texas holdem.

2005 World Series of Poker Results:
$10,000 No-Limit Texas Holdem, July 7-15
Winning poker players in the Main Event of the 2005 World Series of Poker,
#42 No-Limit Texas Holdem,  included well over 500 money finishers whose prizes ranged from  $12,500 to  $7.5 million.
Joe Hachem,  Steve Dannenmann,  and John  "Tex"  Barch were Nos. 1,  2,  and 3 of the final table.  Unlike last year,  the world champion did not qualify online,  or even in a satellite event,  but bought in directly for  $10,000.  However,  online poker rooms did contribute three players of the nine at the final table:  Brad Kondracki, (No. 8)  who qualified through play on PokerStars.com,  Daniel Bergsdorf of Sweden, (No. 7)  whose seat was also won from Poker Stars,  and fourth-place finisher Aaron Kanter,  who won his seat in a Party Poker shootout.
Here are the full results of Event 42 and the names of all players who won cash prizes.

Poker On ESPN: What's Coming
By Paul Kammen
April 20, 2005

In 2001,  while doing a search for poker on  TVguide.com,  I read with glee that the 1997 World Series of Poker (WSOP)  would be broadcast one afternoon on ESPN2.  It was an hour-long show,  which I knew I had to tape,  for poker was seldom seen on TV.
Now poker is on TV pretty much every day,  with poker shows raking in solid ratings even though the events are seldom seen live.

Poker Tournaments and TV Coverage
By Paul Mcguire
April 5, 2005

A few years ago,  poker on TV was limited to only a couple of hours of coverage on American television every year.  ESPN had such a low opinion of poker that they always aired the World Series from Las Vegas in the wee hours of the morning.  It wasnít even good enough to be on their main channel...
