Olivier Busquet – NASCAR Put The Brakes On Alpha8 Premiere

Pokernews' Kristy Arnett talks yaps with the new WPT commentator.

The premiere of the new World Poker Tour Alpha8 Super High Roller tournament TV show was pushed back last week when rain delayed the ability for a bunch of cars to drive in a circle.

Professional poker player turned poker commentator, Olivier Busquet takes a few minutes after level two of EPT Vienna to talk with PokerNews reporter Kristy Arnett about how a live NASCAR race on Fox Sports 1 (FS1) interrupted the poker world’s first look at the new Alpha8 program. Now the show is slated to air on Sunday March 30th on FS1 with no breaks in the schedule moving forward.

Speaking of lag, the pair also commiserate with each other about how hard it is, when flying all over the world to play and cover poker tournaments, to get their sleep schedules on track. The pair, fighting horrible cases of jetlag, talk about way to try and combat that while focusing on the poker tasks at hand.
