The Real Deal : A New Interactive Poker Stage Show at Venetian

What do you get when you add poker superstars, mobile gaming devices, cash and prizes, a handful of show girls and crowd of tourists? A sex party inside the mind of poker-brat Phil Hellmuth in Summerlin! Oh wait... no... you actually get a new show at the Venetian called The Real Deal.

It's part Gong Show, part World Poker Tour, part online gambling - live on stage. Audience competes for cash and prizes on wireless gaming devices as top poker stars (Brunson, Hellmuth, Negreanu, Esfandiari, Harman, Laak, Nguyen and more) and "a big name comedy host" act like boneheads on stage.

Makes perfect sense right? Exactly. What it lacks in 'clarity' it makes up for in having us tourists pay the Venetian to train us to learn how to use the mobile gaming devices they seem so hot on these days.

Call me a fool... but if I wanted to gamble in my py-jamas (or an autographed Dokken thong), I'd do it at home on the internet. I go to Vegas to actually ruffle the chips (ruffling on a second mousepad is lame), touch the dice, hi-five strangers wearing oxygen tanks at a 3CP table when dealer qualifies, and the lovely sounds of chik-chik-chik-chik-chik *beepbeepbeep* after hitting a big spin at the Wheelie slots.

Or I can lose money in silence sitting on the can, post buffet.

"Honey... look I got a royal flush! I won $500 sitting on the can!"

"That's great dear. You've also got six feet of toilet paper trailing behind your partially soiled ass crack. How much do you win for that? Obviously not my respect and admiration."



Comments & Discussion:

In the "easily amused" category, I'd just like to point out that the IE titlebar for this article displays ending as "Las Vegas Casino News and Anal". Say what you want, but it certainly caught my eye.

Went kinda well with the bit about gambling on the can and trailing TP behind, actually.

we're obviously cut from the same roll of charmin.

That's what frightens me. I've been assuring my parole officer all along that hey, at least there's only one of me. Hopefully the word does not spread.
