Online Poker Players Create A Reality TV Show
It is reported that a group of well known, young online poker professionals are to create a reality television show that will follow their lifestyle and show off to the world what its like being young, rich and reckless with money.
The show creatively named 'House Of Cards' will chronicle the lives of four prolific high stakes online poker players: Krantz, Flawless_Victory, whitelime and FoxwoodsFiend. All of whom met on the internet, have been close friends for years and have been playing at a nose bleed high stakes level for quite some time. The 30 minute pilot episode will follow the group as they embark on the high roller lifestyle in Las Vegas, eating at the best restaurants, drinking at the most exclusive night clubs and spending lavishly.
Thankfully there will also be a lot of poker being played during the pilot show, the initial concept is to follow all four players trying to reach a specific monetary goal by the end of a week period, the player who earns the least in the seven days will be forced to perform some ridiculous dare - think Entourage meets Jackass.
The online poker world is huge subculture and these four players are seen as heroes to many hungry aspiring young poker players, so it will be interesting to see how the show does.
