I know some guys have asked me before why I waste my time watching poker on television. I've explained to them that observing the action, and getting to see the cards that are played and raised, actually makes me a better player. It's as if you're given several hours of practice hands to learn from. For your average Joe, seeing the way in which the game changes when the table is small is very helpful. Ordinarily, I would be too conservative to play the types of cards necessary to win at a 4, 5 or 6 person table. You have to take chances and gamble which is exactly what Farha and Moneymaker do throughout these 7 episodes. I also like the fact that, unlike when you see them on television, there are not any commercials here to distract and annoy. You can speed right through the discs. I got my copy used and definitely will be watching WSOP 2003 a few more times.
