The Poker Show gets off to a controversial start

Friday, 1 May 2009

After a few early technical difficulties Boyle Poker’s newly revived The Poker Show has started to hit its stride. The show, hosted by Jesse May and Padraig Parkinson welcomed a host of top quality guests to christen their first week on the air.

Top of the bill was multiple WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth who confirmed that he (along with Scotty Nguyen) will be undergoing sensitivity training at the behest of WSOP commissioner Jeffrey Pollack.

Other guests included Dan Harrington, Phil Laak, Roland de Wolfe, Irish Open runner-up Kara Scott, Mike Sexton, Liam Flood and ‘Mad’ Marty Wilson. Among the callers to the show was Rory Liffey who was soon cut from the airwaves after a volley of swearwords which would have made The Thick Of It’s Malcolm Tucker blush.

This Sunday’s show looks like another goodie with Annette Obrestad and Tom ‘Durrrr’ Dwan, both lined up. Host Padraig Parkinson summed things up saying “I have a feeling this is either all going to end in tears or we will have created a monster. Either way, I'm going to love it."
