The newest addition to the PokerGO catalogue was announced today in the form of “Stories from the Felt.” These six stories are giving viewers an insight to some of the most legendary stories in the game with interviews featuring Poker Hall of Famers.
The first of these stories goes directly to the source of the highest stakes action Las Vegas can offer in the form of “Bobby’s Room.” It’s one thing to catch a hearsay story told from a third-party but it’s another to have Nick Schulman tell you about the experience of his first time playing in ‘The Office.’
Only poker can offer a table so intimate that fans will go into the Bellagio just for the hope of catching a glimpse of their favorite player. That fandom goes so deep as for Eli Elezra to relay a story of a fan who was willing to put over $1 million on the table to play with him and Doyle Brunson.
The legend of Bobby’s Room is more than just a place to play. It’s the story of how it came to be in the first place. Very few know of its origin and “Stories from the Felt” gives the full background of how it came to be.
Among the interviewees sharing their fond memories of the place where they have made a living are Todd Brunson, Jennifer Harman, and Mori Eskandani.
The best part about this tale is for all the stories that are told on camera, are the hundreds that will never see the light of day. Sure, we all witness millions being won in tournaments on a weekly basis but the tales of the real fortunes being amassed are now finally hitting the mainstream.
“Bobby’s Room” is the first story to hit PokerGO with more soon to follow in the coming days. While you wait for the Five Diamond final table to air on December 10, take a few minutes and bask in the glow of the crown jewel of the Bellagio poker room.
