I want to know how any gambler in their right mind is going to trust this little I-series adventure. What is going to stop two or more players colluding on any particular prop bet and chip dumping to make it happen. Given all the things that have happened in the poker world in the last year I wouldn't touch this with a ten foot pole.

Any reason why the video is such low bit rate?

@George3: Daniel does this all by himself...no production crew, no editing help...just himself, his camera, and his laptop (replete with whatever software he's working with). It's pretty raw, which isn't such a bad thing under the circumstances.

Always nice to start my Thursday with this to get me through the rest of the week. iSeries seems like a nice idea, but it is tough to think that the potential for 'issues' is certainly there ... after all, the horses in a race are kept apart, hard to do with people!!

Yes, the elimination of the verbal part of poker dulls it down ... math rules and don't tell anyone what your thinking or they will use it against you later ... There is a line there also though as the trash talking in hoops and football is part of their game, might be best to keep that away from the microphones ... right Tony G?? When kept to poker and the hand in play, lets have some fun.

Hey Daniel...you up for a little Q&A with the fans? You might actually be a perfect one to ask about this particular thing...

I'm contemplating visits to a couple different parts of Canada, namely Montreal and Niagara Falls. I'd like to play some poker while on the other side of the border and am curious about the language rules at the poker tables in Canada--especially in Montreal where I suspect some French would come in VERY handy. In U.S. cardrooms, "English only" is the rule. What's the rule in Canada? Regardless of whether one could get by on English alone, might you (or, perhaps, Vanessa Rousso) be able to give us a crash course in French-language poker terminology on a future episode of "The Weekly Rant" (I can learn to count in French on the internet; it's things like "call", "raise", "all-in", "how much", "how much behind"...you get the idea)? Are there any other rules that could potentially take first-time players from the U.S. by surprise?

Thanks!
