Never lose your pokerface

Sunday, October 26th, 2008 by skylowlow

I found three funny videos on youtube, which are showing, that, if you want to be a poker pro, you should never lose your pokerface. No matter how strange the situation is, you have to be cool and self-controlled. These videos are commercials from Full Tilt Poker. I’m not sure, if these commercials are shown on tv in the USA. Maybe someone could leave a litte comment with this information.

In the first video you can see Jon Juanda, winner of the WSOPE Main Event in 2008 and owner of four bracelets.

In the second video you see Eric Seidel, who won 8 bracelets till now. Eric Seidel was runner-up in his first major tournament, the 1988 WSOP main event, to Johnny Chan. The final hand of this match was featured in the movie Rounders with Matt Damon and Edward Norton.

In the third video you can see Phil Ivey, who won five WSOP bracelets till now and who is, in my opinion, the most talented player in the poker circus. Phil Ivey is a regular participant in the Big Game at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas (a $4,000-$8,000 mixed cash game with extreme big pots).
