The drug of the nation

I’m playing poker on TV again!

It’s almost as exciting as being on an American cable show that got cancelled in the UK before my episode was shown.  This time I’m going to be playing online poker under someone else’s name with someone else’s money, but still – it’s on Poker Night Live!

Not only can you watch this from 9pm tonight (unless it’s cancelled in the next few hours) on Sky channel eight thousand and something, you can watch live online here.  Although the only time I’ve tried to watch their webcast before it was so blocky you couldn’t actually see what the hole cards were.  Then again, I was trying to stream it using the 3G connection on my phone – what do you expect?

I’m making up the numbers in a $25/$50 blinds no limit game, sitting down with two dimes.  Wow, looks like it’s a somewhat bigger game than I’d usually play, where a dime actually is 10c.  Ah, the magic of television.  The money is real, but every player in the game is a prop so it really doesn’t matter who wins or loses.

I’ll shatter two illusions in one go.  It’s also not live.  We’re recording about 2pm.

Tonight, Matthew, I’m going to be "Super Hero"…
