I enjoy watching the WPT Poker Videos. I've also purchased the Superstars Poker Videos. This series is a step below both of those tournament poker videos. It's a bit amateurish, but that's a bit charming at times--Mike Matusow in a bad suit pretending he's really excited explaining the play-by-play in one episode where he's the guest commentator. That's not bad.
This series could be so much better if it focused more on the poker hands and if it learned from the WPT. For example, one episode, the first hand shown, is an all-in and someone goes out. The next hand shown, is another all-in and someone else goes out. Now we're done to four and we've hardly seen any poker. I'm sure there were other hands going on--but they didn't show them. Another example, one hand someone is chip leader--the very next hand shown--he's short-stacked! A smaller nitpick is when someone is all-in and the guest commentator is explaining what cards can win it for them--they can't complete the sentence before the dealer turns over the critical card. So much for suspense. And like the WPT Poker Tours events, they'll still spend part of each episode explaining how to play Texas Holdem with their Shana be-alike, "Brandy", along with long introductions, and at the end, awarding a camera to the winner of the event. Please, please, please next season focus on POKER! You don't have to be brain surgeon to realize if you do that, you won't screw up.
A good part about the series is that you do get several episodes on each CD and it seems a decent value for the money. But I've found myself much preferring to watch WPT events or WSOP events. Watching the Ultimate Poker Season can be like pulling teeth.
