Got one the other day. Can't believe I got paid off for it, given the other guy's hand, but felt nice.

Whenever the debate about best poker commentary comes around (as I've seen it do many times in my lurking), I've noticed that the debate always centers around the usual trilogy of HSP/Gabe, WPT/Vince&Mike, and WSOP/Norm&Chad. My own ranking there is Gabe, then Norm&Chad (who are pretty good, all things considered), then Vince&Mike a distant third (although admittedly they are somewhat handicapped by the WPT final table structure and the inherently limited variety of situations and play that they can comment on).However, I've got to put my strong vote out to John Duthie, who does the play commentary for his own production, the European Poker Tour. My understanding is that American audiences have never seen this (correct me if I'm wrong), but Canadian audiences saw the first season on the Score a couple of years ago, and TSN carried the second season earlier this year. The quality of Duthie's hand analysis was, in my opinion, on par with Gabe's easily (though without the humour, which Duthie leaves to his sidekick).Am I the only person who's seen the EPT and has similar opinions?Ian.
