TCA: G4 hits a flush

BY STUART LEVINE

Because I’m a home-game player, G4’s TCA panel “2 Months, $2 Million” intrigued me.

Premise: Four online poker players move to Vegas for a couple of months and use their own money to try and earn a cool $2 mil in 60 days.

That’s a lot of coin but whether they’re able to accumulate that amount isn’t really the point. The fact that four twentysomethings are all professional players and don’t blink an eye on having to pony up $10,000 to enter a tournament — and these guys often plays 2-3 tournaments a month — is mindbogging.

The poker craze began when amateur Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker six years ago and it’s difficult to say whether the phenomenon has continued. G4 is smart to focus and market the show on how these guys enjoy a bachelor’s lifestyle in Vegas. Yup, that means girls, extravagance, clubbing, and more girls wiill be featured more than poker strategy.

Show launches Aug. 16 and will air Sunday nights at 9 p.m.
