Nick G. invited us and a few others to watch the taping of the first ever Philippine Celebrity Poker Tournament at the Casino Filipino paranaque. Although it was quite uneventful, and i didnt even get to finish the taping (man it was dragging on and on and they didnt seem to know what they were doing hehe), i'm glad i was there to witness it. It was cool to mingle with the big guys from pagcor and even play a little ring game (play money lang) right there in the casino.
None other than Nick himself will be acting as host of the show and doing the poker commentary when it airs. Hey, i almost didnt recognize him from all the make-up he had on! haha! showbiz! It will be airing i think maybe next year and will be a series of 7 episodes or something.
I'm pretty sure this will boost the awareness of our local population about poker a hundredfold. More games for us, more new players, more chances to rol the 'roll!
