Poker 2 Nite Season Two Debut

by , Mar 4, 2010 | 11:43 am

Poker 2 Nite has returned for their 2nd season, this time they’re on Versus, as Fox Sports Net had various restrictions on what Scott Huff and Joe Sebok could actually cover on the show, especially with online poker. Joe Stapleton is no longer the head writer, replaced by the people behind Wicked Chops Poker taking over the writing.

Segment one appears below, but stayed tuned for the special Pokerati mention in segment three on page 2:


Second Season, New Network for Poker2Nite

+ Sebok prop bet update

by , Feb 24, 2010 | 3:09 pm

Poker2Nite inked a deal for a second season of the poker-news-talk-variety show presented by, featuring Scott Huff, Joe Stapleton, and Joe Sebok. After a start-up run on FoxSports — and seen regularly on Pokerati — season 2 will run for 12 episodes on the Versus network … Versus was formerly the Outdoor Life Network before rebranding itself as a sports and lifestyle channel in late 2008. This seems to be in line with their development of slightly non-traditional sports programming.

We’ll see how any new embedding options work, and what else may or may not change with the new channel. But glad to see the industry still able to support two semi-independent poker television news shows … the other, of course, being ESPNs The Inside Deal presented by PokerStars.

The new season begins on Wednesday, March 3, supposedly at 11 pm … though I am thinking that must be Eastern Time since the Cox Las Vegas listings say it airs at 8 pm and re-airs on Fridays at 2:30 pm. Channel 38.

And a little bubbling-under semi-related to the show … Cohost Sebok says he tried to buy out of his face-tattoo prop bet with Gavin Smith and Jeff Madsen, but they wouldn’t accept … which you know how that works … makes him the odds-on favorite to win the permanent lasts-longer bet for the LAPC main event.

New Off-Table Poker on TV: Poker2Nite

by , Nov 16, 2009 | 1:54 pm

A new show launches this week on Fox Sports … Poker2Night … starring Joe Sebok and Scott Huff. I’m not sure if this few-holds-barred-poker-news concept makes The Poker Beat more of a fluffer or a clean-up man, but regardless … good on Ultimate Bet for buying time in a way that helps elevate poker to the level of other sports that have weekly news shows covering the baseball/football/soccer/foosball/whatever biz.

Wednesdays at 11 pm … time zone/cable-service-provider variance not yet clear:

Early tip on improving the show without having seen any of it: More Wolfman!

The PokerRoad Tribute Show

by , Apr 24, 2009 | 8:50 pm

PokerRoad did an amazing tribute show to Justin Shronk, featuring Joe Sebok, Gavin Smith, Ali Nejad, Court Harrington, Scott Huff, and special guest BJ Nemeth.

If you knew Shronk, this is well worth the time. If you didn’t, it gives some insight into a life lost too early but a life well-lived and filled with friendship, respect, and love. Click here to listen to the heartfelt tribute.

On a personal note, thanks to the guys for putting together this show. Almost as difficult as feeling the loss of Shronk was hearing the heartbreak and sadness in your voices, but it is deeply appreciated.

Rest in peace, Shronk.

Beyond the Tao of Poker Roadie

by , Jan 29, 2009 | 11:54 am

As Kevin points out, I’m helping kick off a new podcast today in pursuit of my aspirations of becoming a talking head who mouths off smugly about things he only kinda-sorta knows about.

The Poker Beat (a Scott Huff joint) will essentially be like Meet the Press or The Sports Reporters for poker. Should be interesting. My segment will be with Scott and occasional 2008 Pokerati poster (and WPT tournament reporter) BJ Nemeth.

Click here to listen live. Eventually the folks at PokerRoad will have it up in podcast form, too, so you can listen at your convenience and/or sync with iTunes. But today is our first go, so everything’s new and rolling out as we go along. But it should be more professional than my previous podcast endeavors — like we have an outline and everything!

Here is the link to send a supportive email to some influential folks on behalf of fully legal poker in Texas.

UPDATE: Here’s the full episode, for listening at your leisure —

Big Poker Sundays Live Debut

by , Jun 1, 2008 | 4:18 pm

Big Poker Sundays is one of the PokerRoad radio shows that hits the interweb regularly and courtesy of the Joe Sebok/Barry Greenstein start-up. BPS, as it’s called, features the comedic duo of Scott Huff and Haralabos Voulgaris. While they’re both hilarious, it is Voulgaris’ deadpan sense of humor that leaves me in tears almost every time. His kind of wit is unique – a little David Niven-ish.

Since PokerRoad is doing quite a few things live from the 2008 World Series of Poker, BPS did their first live show of the summer this morning from 11am to noon in the hallway just outside the Amazon Room. I thought it might be fun to watch, which it was, but work called halfway through and I had to leave. In the meantime, the show had drawn quite the crowd of fans who were happy to stand around and listen to the two radio superstars live.

Not sure how comfortable the two were with everyone watching them do nothing but talk, but they were up for it. Congrats on your live BPS, Bob & Huff. Laughs are always appreciated!
