Weekly Dose: Tossing the cookies
On most days, I want to be Daniel Negreanu. However, when I see the type of people he may have to face in the PokerStars Million Dollar Challenge, I suddenly don't feel nearly as envious.
See, there are a lot of people who get a chance to submit casting videos for the show, and that means it takes a lot of creativity to stand out and get noticed. That means the folks Negreanu will end up playing are pretty darned dedicated to the idea of beating Negreanu at his own game.
As we take a look at the week's best internet video offerings, ChristianJS's auditon tape was the first one that caught our eye.
That's the man right there, a veteran of ten years of poker and the war in Iraq.
What you have below is no handicam home movie. ChristianJS and his team put together a short film you might recognize.
Speaking of that hit show, we've just been handed a behind-the-scenes look from the good folks over at PokerStars.tv.
In the video below, see Negreanu fall in love, Barry Greenstein comment on Kid Poker's abilities, and Vanessa Rousso in a headband.
