Online Poker Poker Poker Humor — 29 March 2006

Poker LadyYou might want to hurry because there’s a good chance they might take it down but this has to be the worst product ad I’ve ever seen. The product; Poker Genius. The comedy; An eight minute webcast.

The video starts off with a massive overbet with pocket aces to pick up the blinds. Then you see the player open limp with pocket eights on the button only to check it down. It’s some of the worst playing I’ve seen in my life and yet the speaker claims he wins 70% of the SnG’s he plays using this product. You really have to watch and listen to fully appreciate how bad this guy is.

As an added bonus: The product is free if you join one of their recommended poker rooms via their affilaite links. Of course, the entire demo is on PokerStars though none of the affiliate links being offered is PokerStars.

  1. thanks to ‘wget’, I’ll be showing that webcast at my weekly home game, sometime after the ‘entertainment’ and tequila phase ends, but well before the cards get in the air.

  2. He mentions his Stars banner and says, “This site has 82-hundred-thousand players on it.” Too much.
