re: Poker & Poker on tv.
You get that on Poker After Dark. They are the only show on TV that shows 90+ % of the hands played. Poker TV shows are not meant to be educational, they are meant to be entertaining. The networks would lose too many viewers if they showed every single hand. The viewers would get too bored.
I might just pay to get Poker After Dark on my tv, I believe it is shown on an Irish sports chanel?
I fully realise what the masses want to watch, as for educational or entertaining, as far as I am concerned they can run hand in hand!
Reading some of the intelligent posts on this forum is enough of a lesson, like finding out I am a Tagfish! I have been working on that side of my game for the past month.
My post was not meant to be taken as me needing a lesson in how to play poker, but more a reference to the psychology of the game, which is sadly lacking through watching edited snippets on tv poker.
