How mainstream is poker? Enough so that Spokane/Northern Idaho NBC affiliate KHQ news anchor Matt Rogers chose “poker pro” as his alternate dream job.
When asked what Rogers’ dream job would be, in promoting a local job fair, Rogers picked poker and went on to produce a human interest piece on how poker is no longer the seedy, sketchy, underground game it was once thought to be. Now, as he reports, after Chris Moneymaker and the poker boom, it’s more of an above board, legit serious hobby for most and an actual profession for some. (Something we’ve known for a long time).
Watch as Rogers makes his case for the popularity of poker. You can just tell by watching that he’s a true poker enthusiast.
