World Series of Poker Is Like Crack

It's true! Iggy from Guinness & Poker blogged this read: World Series of Poker Is Like Crack is an article written by Chris Becker from a student newspaper in Wisconsin.

Here's a bit: "I’m not a very big gambler... which is why I presumably shouldn’t have any interest in watching televised gambling, just like how someone who isn’t really a fan of crap and garbage wouldn’t have any interest in watching reality shows... which is why I was surprised as anyone when I became addicted to the televised World Series of Poker on ESPN. Especially since I don’t even like poker... the main reason why the World Series of Poker, against all logic, is entertaining to watch is because it is heavily edited for time. Imagine it being like a football game in which the only parts that are televised are the plays that are interesting and matter and people care about, except it also lasts several days and the competitors don’t need to be in shape because they’re playing cards...."
