Personally I'm enjoying this show. It seems like a lot of people feel there's not enough poker to entertain poker players and not enough excitement to engage the mainstream.
While I think both of these points are partly valid I disagree that the show won't still appeal to people from both camps.
These four guys were a good choice. The personal assistant sums it up nicely when she says, "They're not how I pictured poker players."
While online players like this might be successful, they're not necessarily cool because of it.
Episode 2 features Emil interviewing and eventually hiring a personal assistant, the introduction of the tilt room and of course a few more sessions of online.
