In WPT Season I, we have the broadcast that we now love in its embryo stage. It arrived just before the full-fledged poker boom, and the tournaments shown are smaller, and their prizes smaller, than the ones we now know. Just as one would expect, Mike Sexton is present with all his syrupy enthusiasm and Vince Van Patton plays his model sidekick throughout. Interestingly, Shana Hiatt has a more wholesome, brunette appearance. Of course, with a face like hers, it's impossible to ever look bad. If you recall, it was Hiatt who gave us the wonderful quote, "I like a real man. Not a pretty boy who looks in the mirror longer than me and who shaves his body." Bravo, you're hired!--at least on my team. Anyway, the only difference in quality with the first season episodes and what we have now is that they do not yet show in boxes next to the cards onscreen the probabilities for each player's winning. For me, the statistics have been a highly helpful educational guide to better play; just as watching the videos have. If I were you, I'd consider buying this one from the z shop. It's half the price and I've never had any problem with any of their used copies in the past. One last thing, forward to the Hollywood championships just to see the blitzed Layne Flack at the final table. Why would anybody drink like that before a tournament? Men the Master looks like he was emptying the bottle with him. It's actually a riot because Flack, after showing Men his cards, humiliates Lakers owner, Jerry Buss, heads up. All the while, Sexton and Van Patton pull a Sergeant Schultz and see nothing.
