5.0 out of 5 stars Poker Entertainment 21 May 2005
By Movie Madman - Published on Amazon.com
Like most of us who enjoy poker, if it is on, I am watching. Season 2 of the World Poker Tour was the most exciting, as prize pools escalated to record numbers. You get all of the exciting tournaments to watch anytime you like. I have watched all of the DVDs over a dozen times and they are still fun to watch. My favorite BONUS in this DVD set is the added commentary in 4 of the tournaments, 2 with Daniel Negreanu and Erick Lindgren and 2 with Antonio "the magician" Esfandiari and Phil "the unabomber" Laak. The insights of these 4 professionals are worth the price of the entire set. Let's hope they do this in the 3rd season DVD set...hopefully in more of the tournaments too.

The only downside is the 8th DVD is just some poker tips and player profiles. It was not that great, but that is being really picky because also on the 8th DVD is an aftermath review of the WPT champuionship where Daniel Negreanu, Annie Duke, and Phil Hellmuth break down why the losers lost, how the winner won, and the tells, body language, and mental breakdowns that occurred throughout the game.

This dvd set is the best I will buy this year unless season 3 comes out this year. I do not see how a poker fan would be disappointed. The final tables in season 2 were loaded with the greatest players ever to sit at a table and you get to sit there with them and look at their cards, judge their decisions, and root for your favorites, what could be better??

Hope this helped some of you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The World Poker Tour Season Two 9 April 2005
By Kid Poker - Published on Amazon.com
What can I say? This DVD set is amazing. If you are an avid poker fan/ enthusiast, then this DVD set is a steal.

I purchased this DVD this afternoon, and I've just watched two episodes back to back, and I have yet to notice a flaw.

The DVD's are made wonderfully, two episodes per disc, totalling 7 discs of poker action (roughly 3 hours per disc), plus an additional bonus DVD with player profiles and poker tips. 8 DVD's, packaged into 4 slim DVD cases, with color inserts, and information about each episode. Asthetically, this DVD looks amazing.

After popping in the first DVD, the usual copyright stuff comes up (very short though, which is a plus), and right into the menu. Clips of the beautiful WPT host, Shana Hiatt, shows up top, and episode selection on the bottom. Each episode is divided into chapters, with each chapter ending where a normal commerical break would be inserted. The quality of the video is amazing, very crisp and clear, as expected of DVD video.

Being an amateur player, I find this set essential. I, personally, enjoy studying each player, hand by hand, call by call, bet by bet. Watching the professionals play is something that is absolutely essential for improving play.

I'm watching my third episode right now, and I do not plan to stop until I watch them all.

Overall, this item is absolutely amazing, and a great gift for any poker lover (actually, this was purchased with my birthday money).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Set for Poker Fans 11 April 2005
By Dorrie Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
If you are a fan of the game of poker you will surely enjoy World Poker Tour-Season Two. The show comes on the travel channel. The major players have their only little quirky personalities, like Phil Ivey who is known for wearing sweatshirts and sweat pants to the table. The announcers have little quips and jokes to provide fodder as the game play takes place. The stakes are very high. The World Poker Tour succeeds because it gives the viewers a front row seat to these high stakes games. The set is a whopping 8 discs. This set would make the perfect gift for a poker fan, or hey Father's Day is coming up too. The set includes episodes from various locations including Aruba, on ships and several episodes taped at various casinos in Nevada and California among other locals. The extras are interesting. The player profiles give the viewers insight into the players who you don't really see talk when they are at the table. The featurette "Poker Takes Over Hollywood: A look at Hollywood's fascination with poker," takes a look at how some of Hollywood's popular actors are into the game of poker. This set is priced less than season one and you get just as much great poker action if not more with all the bonus material. This is a wonderful DVD set for someone who likes the shows, loves the game of poker, or wants to learn more about poker.

4.0 out of 5 stars A "Semester" at "Poker U." for $30 31 Dec 2006
By MJG - Published on Amazon.com
For a real student of the game, this and other collections are a must. Play them through and enjoy. Then play them again and listen to Sexton's insightful commentary. Then play them through again and analyze each hand. How would you play each hand? Play again and note the psychology in play. Look for the bluffs, tells, and reverse psychology.

This is a good month's worth of study if you do it right. Study. Learn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent poker show that inspired the poker boom 21 Mar 2012
By Julian L Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
To put it simply, this was the show that was a huge reason that poker is what it is today. This was the show that inspired hundreds of thousands of average joes, to start playing poker. It was a show that gave this beautiful perception that anyone can easily become a poker-made millionaire who will be able to get beautiful women like Shana Hiatt without any problem at all.

Online poker boomed in 2004, and players who had seen an episode of the WPT were sure that they were going to dominate the tables. Fish-(bad poker players) were everywhere, and for the experienced players, this was a beautiful time to be a poker grinder. PLayers would go all in with A3 on a board of AJ9 and other players simply couldn't fold pairs like 8's or hands like Ace Jack pre-flop under any circumstances. Almost 10 years later, and even if you are playing micro stakes, players are much better and many are just multi-tabling grinders with a very good understanding of the game, who tend to not make these errors that were common at medium stakes games online back then.

The production values on this show were amazing, and despite Vince Van Patten being a completely inept commentator, Mike Sexton-(truly a great ambassador of poker to this day) makes some excellent insights into the hands. The poker action is of a fairly high standard, although you should remember that this is entertainment, not education. If you want to truly become a better player, read Dan Harrington's books. With that said, there are some hands that are definately worth discussion and playback.

The special features with the commentaries on some of the episodes with pro players is pretty cool, although I wish they did it with all the episodes.

This is definately a DVD set that is worth getting, and I truly hope that the rest of the seasons get a proper and official release in the near future.
