Hollywood dealing into the Texas Hold?em Poker world

Texas Hold?Em never sounded so exciting and dangerous as ESPN describes their new poker based series TILT. ?A group of professional poker players band together to take down legendary gambler Don "The Matador" Everest at the World Poker Championships in Las Vegas. Each player has his own reason for wanting to hurt The Matador, including a cop who wants to see him in jail.? TILT is just the latest attempt by Hollywood to grab a part, and be included in the ever expanding poker world. Chase Mitchell of theplainsman describes the phenomenon as ?A seemingly endless stream of high-rated programs, such as ESPN?s ?World Series of Poker,? the Travel Channel?s ?World Poker Tour,? Bravo?s ?Celebrity Poker Challenge? and the prime-time drama ?TILT? have saturated the airwaves in recent years, giving viewers a closer look at the world of Texas Hold?Em and pushing it into the pop-culture spotlight.? Whether Hollywood?s attempts to push into the market will be successful or not is still to be seen. A big question will be if the scripted poker has any credibility in real world of Texas Hold?em, and how much about poker these shows will really be. One attempt to gain that credibility and taking ?the push? one step further is HollywoodPoker. HollywoodPoker is actually getting the celebrities onto the online poker tables and making them accessible to all players who wish to challenge these celebs. This is an opportunity for users to ask celebrities to put their Hollywood money where their mouths are. Stars such as James Woods are sitting down and playing poker with actual people, virtually of course, but still it is an opportunity to prove their merit. No Scripts, no villains, just you a celebrity or two, and a deck of cards.
