Marshals of the Felt: Tournament Directors – The tournament directors of Manila came together with PokerCast Asia to show us the human side beneath the iron-fisted enforcers of poker.
No matter the patch or color we wear, the amount of cashes we’ve won and lost, or the number of busts we give and receive, we’re all humans of poker in love with the same great things in life, cards cut from the same deck.
Let’s face it – no matter where we come from, we gather ‘round this scene for the common love of a few great things: Money. Fame. Adrenaline. Power. And, of course, Poker.
Rarely seen by both newbies and outsiders alike is how people in the poker industry have a genuine interest in people. This love for meeting new faces and being with different kinds of people is especially true with our poker tournament directors, our special feature: Marshals of the Felt.
The Tournament Directors
Pokercast Asia will take you behind the scenes of poker tournaments as we get up close and personal with the tournament directors responsible for making all the tough calls for the sake of the game on a day-to-day basis:
We scouted the newly-opened Midas Poker Room, where we got to know the noble professional thrust of the steadfast Ronald Mendoza;
We journeyed to the splendour of old Manila as we listened to APT Poker Room Manila’s ever-formidable Raymund Gamier a.k.a. Papa Bear on his calls for a poker revolution to fan the waning flames of the game;
We traveled to the far north, where we were enchanted by the ravishing Mylene Advincula as she revealed her arsenal in managing the mighty machinery that is The Metro Card Club;
We trekked to Manila’s very own Las Vegas District to discover the power of Odeck‘s magic hand at a tournament table in Poker King Club;
We explored the local scene with Let’s All In Poker Club, where we encountered a starry-eyed romantic and a dedicated woman beneath the strict Janice Mari;
We did all this and more as we put the spotlight on the people we call whenever things get rough. Learning the basics from the people who are living and breathing it on a daily basis.
