Calvin Ayre reporter, the charming Tatjana Pasalic, denied to film in the hallways of the Rio during the World Series of Poker waits outside in the heat to ask poker players who they think should get nominated for the Poker Hall of Fame. We think this video may be one big level…
It starts out standard enough – poker pros theoretically nominating other pros for the Hall like Antonio Esfandiari, John Duthie and Daniel Negreanu.
Then Kevin Stammen walks into camera and nominates Daniel Alaei after which the video shows a long montage of Daniel Negreanu over Stammen talking about Alaei.
Then Tatjana talks with professional poker player “Brandon Stevens” who nominated Phil Ivey. Of course, this could be a Brandon Stevens. But it’s certainly not well known poker pro Brandon Steven, the participant in the One Drop. If this particular person named Brandon Stevens is a poker pro, it looks like he’s currently sitting with $415 total earnings according to the GPI.
(We totally acknowledge we could be wrong here.)
The finally poker pro David Tuthill doesn’t quite seem genuine in his offering up of the aforementioned Kevin Stammen.
Or maybe he is and we’re the ones who just got leveled.
