Stu Ungar, BoM, DIY Poker Highlight Top 6 Videos of 2016

Top 6 Collage
Ever seen poker played on a paddle-board?

2016 was a huge year and as we approach its end we run down the top six best videos from the PokerListings video team.

Highlights include documentaries, mockumentaries, DIY tutorials and outdoor poker adventures.

Topping the list is the 14-minute short poker documentary digging into the legendary Stu Ungar's third world championship win in 1997.

The video includes interviews with Ungar's backer Billy Baxter, his best friend Mike Sexton and other people who were there including Phil Hellmuth, Nolan Dalla and Andy Black.

After winning back-to-back WSOP Main Events in 1980 and 1981 Ungar spent close to a decade at the very top of the Las Vegas gambling world before plunging all the way to rock bottom thanks to serious struggles with drug and gambling addiction.

Amazingly, Ungar returned to the WSOP in 1997 and became world champion for the third time.

Taking the number-two spot was the day we hauled our poker table to a secret cliff-jumping spot in Vancouver with poker pro Ben Wilinofsky.

We played poker on a paddle-board, on top of a cliff and even designed a special gadget for transporting the table down the railroad tracks.

Also on the list is the story of one poker player who had to fight the entire poker establishment to follow her dreams to play in the World Series of Poker.

You could say it's the ultimate underdog story.

Check out those stories and more by watching the video below and then watch the full versions in our Poker Video Section.
