Some really great stories. Too bad the interviews w/ S&M were so short.

I like the old black & white picture of Brunson reading "Sklansky on Razz"

I definately noticed how they put NL up on such a huge pedestal and made limit hold'em sound like a kid's game. Other than that, it was a great show.

i missed the history of poker....but they usually re-run these programs later for the west-coast audience....and maybe later in the week also.

i'm watching the mit card-counting team bio right now.
i already like the show better than the book...but we'll see.
i have little tolerance for factual errors so they best not make it look like they won every single hand for 2 straight years.

What's the name of that show - and what channel is it showing on?

It's called "Breaking Vegas," on the history channel right after the poker show.
