      hey guys watched it last night. i guess it was alright nothing special. there was lots about the private lives which had nothing to do with poker and the 2 main players they followed could have been better.. 1 was determined that he was a degen. and explained how if you lose then you're screwed and can't pay bills/living costs (BRM WHAA?!?!) and the other guy was filmed being so drunk that he fell asleep behind his comp screen mid tournament. 1st guy seemed like a bit of an idiot and the 2nd guy sounded like he knew what he was doing but he was getting hammered while playing which does nothing for the image of poker! either way i guess it was a little something for me to watch while eating my dinner lol.

      I would like to say that Matt Galagher isn't a grinder, I play at the same clubs as he does and he comes once in a blue moon. A grinder is there all the time. He's a nit that just waits for aa and kks all day. Andre on the other hand makes some good cash and the other guy who goes to vegas and niagara falls he ain't anything special either these aren't true grinders

      Yup, but you can rent it for the week for like $2 or something.

      Not as good as I thought it would be though.

      just from the looks of the trailer it didn't seem they were grinders haha,

      that said i personally wouldn't really like to see a video of true grinders in action, sounds f boring. this video seems pretty awesome though, will watch soon
