I'm a poker enthusiast and a San Diego Padres fan, so I had high hopes for this DVD. While the play is interesting enough, this DVD is really lacking in a couple of places.

For one, the color commentators are horrendous. Listening to Scott Kaplan here I can understand why some people are turned off by him. He and his cohost spend most of the time making negative comments about everyone from the players to the dealer. "Oh, look, they finally figured out who won," is one such quip after a hand. Sure, it's just a charity poker event and not the World Poker Tour, but these two come off like they're just there to mock the whole thing.

They're not particularly knowledgeable about what's going on around them, either. They tend to repeat the same facts about the players over and over again - the only thing they seem to know about Steve Hill is that he's a country singer. If they're not doing that, they're repeating something a player has just said. And those repetitive comments often drown out the actual talking between players at the table.

The DVD is also poorly produced. It's clear that it was made from some sort of early production cut, because the commercial breaks are still included, coming up as title cards that read "Break #1, TRT: 2:00." This means you actually have to fast-forward your DVD through those two minutes to get to the next segment. That's not something I've ever seen on any other DVD version of a TV show, even a DVD-on-demand one.

Plus, there's a lot of filler between the poker, like a "venue spotlight" on Casino Pauma and a "how-to" on Texas Hold 'Em. I'm assuming these were also part of the original TV broadcast, but they really didn't need to be included on the DVD, as they only serve to break up the flow of the game.

I'm glad I got to see this because I love several of the players in it, but I definitely won't be watching any more of the Southern California Poker Tour.
