My 365th Review: Non-patronizing real poker show - definitely worth catching
10 February 2011 | by inteleartsSee all my reviews

PAD is a very well made and produced high stake poker show with world-class players.

Importantly, it shows hand-for-hand play which allows those watching to understand their game better a chance to really see what's going on. I've lost count of the number of coin flips shown on the WSOP, here we get to see the small suited gappers, the small pairs, playing anything from 23o to KJ from the cutoff, the air bluff, the float bets, the trapping etc;

I like the pace of PAD a lot - normally tables take a week and the director's cut provides even more insight. This and High Stakes Poker are different from ESPN tournament plays. A tournament is just that: one player will win it all but can go out in a second - it requires a different approach - it's exciting -but many would argue that PAD and HSP show poker in a purer form as every hand is cash at risk, rather than just an initial stake.

Ali Nejad adds some commentary but essentially this is a show where the cards speak for themselves and it is fascinating to watch.

If you want to improve your game, or closely observe how the world's top players play then this is definitely great viewing.
