Poker Video & DVD Reviews

Here are my reviews of poker videos and poker dvd's. Videos of actual poker play can help you become a better poker player but remember that some of the poker moves that the pro's use ... are meant for pro's. Some of the "How To" type poker videos can be quite basic - how many times can you watch the same summary of how to deal a hold'em game and what a "dealer button" is. Make sure that you buy poker videos that are equivalent to your playing skill. Some videos are very basic while others are more technical, it usually depends on the author or poker pro who is presenting the material.

Make sure to visit the Poker Books, Videos & Magazines HPT Forum to read other people's opinions on these poker videos and dvd's.


Phil Gordon DVD Final Table Poker with Phil Gordon

This dvd features poker professional Phil Gordon sitting at a poker table and explaining his thoughts and actions during a mock poker tournament. It gives you insight into the mind of a professional poker player as he plays the game.

There are two versions available on the dvd - beginner mode and a more advanced mode. I watched the advanced mode but did not really consider it to be very advanced. It was a bit unique to listen to the thought process that Phil goes through as he plays his cards. The cost is $24.95.

Shout! Factory

DVD set World Poker Tour Season 3 DVD Set  from SHOUT! Factory

This four-disk DVD set contains 8 episodes from the World Poker Tour season 3. Each disk contains two episodes of about 1 hour and twenty-five minutes in length. There are no commercials and very little 'extras' included with this DVD set. It's almost exactly the same show that you see on television except for a couple deleted hands that are included. Unlike the previous DVD set, there are no voice-over commentaries by professional poker players. Watching, and re-watching these DVD's over and over again will probably help your poker game more than most poker books will.

DVD set WPT Bad Boys of Poker DVD  from SHOUT! Factory

This is an episode of The World Poker Tour featuring five of the "Bad Boys" of poker (Paul Darden, Phil 'The Unabomber' Laak, David 'Devilfish' Ulliot, Antonio Esfandiari, Gus Hansen) and bank teller Mark Richards. The DVD is 1:25 in length and is identical to the televised WPT shows. The game itself is not too bad. There is an extra commentary track by Antonio Esfandiari and Phil Laak. This is the best commentary of the three that I have heard from these two players - they actually talk quite a bit about odds and how and why hands were played. There are also some biographies and "Bad Boy" moments from the WPT episodes. The price is $19.98.

DVD Set World Poker Tour Season 2 DVD Set  from SHOUT! Factory

This 8-disk DVD set contains 14 episodes from the 2003-2004 World Poker Tour. Each disk contains two episodes of about 1 hour and twenty-five minutes in length. I really liked these DVD's. Four of the games contain a voice-over commentary by either Daniel Negreanu and Erick Lindgren or by Antonio Esfandiari and Phil Laak (The Unabomber). Some of the commentaries are extremely interesting because they offer an inside view as to why a hand was played a certain way and why a decision was made. I really enjoyed the discussions about the amount of bets and the repercussions of the bet on further betting rounds in the hand.

Phil Hellmuth

These Phil Hellmuth videos are not as annoying as you might expect. Phil's presentation is good and he doesn't have a chip on his shoulder. The disks consist of Phil sitting at a poker table and discussing various poker hands ands situations. Even though it is just Phil sitting at a table, it's not too bad. Each disk is separated into different sections of about 5 to 10 minutes each. Each disk also contains the same bonus features, a poker dictionary, and 3 trailers.

I will post reviews within a couple weeks.
