Bonnie now had played before the poker million so he knew that i wasn't as solid as everybody else thought that i had created the impression of being incredibly salted and he was one of the few people that knew whether he had the actual physical tells identified. He's never he's never told me. In two thousand and four you created the european poker tour and the tv shore determines of course taken over by pokerstars twenty eleven but for seven years or so you were at the helm successfully building it up from scratch your obviously right in the poker boom that you'd helped to create but there must have been significant challenges. What were the biggest ones sweating casinos. Actually uncalled rooms. That it was a good idea because they didn't really see the benefits of it. From that point of view. You have to remember the cameras. Just not allowed in casinos sa- trying to persuade pretty much all the european to see that it was a good idea to film poker tournament and it was going to be very good marketing for them. It was very hard. And i think a lot of the issues were around things. Like holding casino. I always wanted to have the mouth to plastics on the ap t but we could never do it because he just went legally allowed to join up and must have flown that every year for about five years. Talk about again and again and again it never happened which was a great shame because it was one of the best tournaments europe Time so initially persuading casinos to sign up so once i managed to get maltin rumsfield. Who was the general manager of the victoria casino to agree to sign up for very small fee. Because that's the other thing. Originally i was hunting modeling the little bit on the wtt game which started the ab fool so in effect. I'm not giving anything away. But in effect you would be asking the casino. Fill out fifty thousand euros to do this. Of course when. I said that he just loved mouth. Russo you junkie on giving fifty thousand years so we kind of went down down down down on. I think to try to get him to sign up. I think eventually sold it to inflect twelve and a half thousand euros now. That's absolutely nothing. Given the amount of money we were spending on the production and the amount of publicity was getting and the fact that they were going to be keeping pretty much all the money but once they signed on i could go to the other venues around europe and get them to come aboard as that old pain together but it was tricky. I didn't want to know rules sponsor. I didn't want one individual sponsor for the whole thing. I wanted every single event sponsored. By a different site i think ladbrokes vanity. The crew there was seventy sites around them and a negotiated deals more than that was great. Then eventually those thing cold the polka channel which was thought that if you guys memories isci sheinberg ause was funding. It as well and i want to try to get the onto. The travel channel is whether the euro spoil tom channel five in discussions with them about getting onto the travel channel and then during those negotiations is. I've quite cleverly said he wanted to carry on the conversation is just me and him and he said look. We'd green light to sponsor the whole thing. And because i'd had such a hard time doing all these damn negotiations and i wasn't really. I'm not really businessman. Unit was really a television direct to trying to put this thing together. Because i loved the game and eventually i just agree to let poke stause sponsor the whole thing 'cause it was much much easier even by then they were the largest tournament site in the world and we would be able to get a lot of people qualifying through satellites. Come to the events and that's eventually will happen. For the first couple of seasons you also commentated on the show alongside colin murray similar to the early. Uso still faces is where you might have had quite a large. That show had a very documentary. Feel to us. We spoke about this. With norman chad. Mccarron more asking. Danny another down the years. I actually missed that. Human stories. centric approach to poker shows on believe that it could still work as a form of maybe even be better when for long-term player acquisition. I'm a bit naive. i'm living in the past. Lauda your prefer. It's i think it gets changed through committee really another thing when you get marketing. People involved with programs when they're paying a lot of money for it. The meetings can become quite heated when it comes to creativity. I'm much prefer that document. I think having a back story of the player is much more interesting than just going straight in watching the actual action. If you can build up the tension you create drama and you make it much more of a show. I post now really enjoyed those first three or four years because i had absolute creative control up until extols exercise some cherub that they had very about at delegating intervention. I started to delegate a lot more you know because the first few years of the to you literally. I did everything from my kitchen table. Nothing no secretary. Nothing not me a tool and it was really hard. Work is kind of like keeping control alike control of everything Thompson came on board was a huge huge. Help to me and with very very popular with everybody all the players. Your she really knew stuff ready. Bright very dynamic. But i do miss that fulmer. I think it was my back. Fula is much more entertaining right before. Starting the in two thousand and three you finished runner up to the late. Great mike sexton at the european heads up championships for a long time. You guys were kind of rivals of sorts later than you became colleagues of sorts. How do you see. Mike's legacy as a player builder amassador. He was just the most genuine wonderful person to be around and his commentary was just the best identity anybody a that but he was a natural commentator from the i never ever even thought of myself or us as being sort of competitors because we never felt like that to nova style pause crossed lot because i used to play in a lotta. Wtt's and i'd known mike for long time. Rena tuesday at the aviation club may might very good nights and have been for years. His legacies massive under his death was an absolute tragedy. And i think it was a really classy gesture up to nine month. Trophy after might yet. Totally one scary moments on the ep was in two thousand and ten. When four masked men armed with knives in golden rubbed a quarter of a euro at the event in berlin. I know darah was there actually while i know. The attackers world captured on imprisoned. That's nonetheless a terrible thing to have happened. Aside from the scared that it would have given everyone help brutal. Was something like that happening. From a business standpoint well was pretty horrific..
