With the European Poker Tour London now fully in swing with the Super High Roller having kicked off last night, we thought it would nice to share with you some of the behind the scenes going on over at PokerStars and the EPT. PokerStars have released a series of videos called “The Bonus Cut” that allow viewers the chance to see stuff that they would normally not get to see.
This week we bring you two short bonus Cut videos that will let you see what it takes to create an EPT title sequence and how difficult it can sometimes be to be a presenter.
EPT 10 Title Sequence
The first bonus cut video that we will be showing you is a behind the scenes look at the EPT and in particular how they short the title sequence for season 10. It contains many of the more commonly known PokerStars Team pros such as Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand “ElKy” Grospellier, Liv Boeree, Luca Pagano and Andre Akkani, with each of them sharing their thoughts on the work that goes on behind the scenes at the European poker Tour.
The video also introducing us to a few of the people that work behind the cameras such as the two Art Directors, with them sharing their knowledge on the sort of work that is needed to create a sequence such as the one we see today.
The Worst of James And Joe
The second video is a lot more light hearted and shows many of the outtakes of EPT presenters Joe Stapleton and James Hartigan. The pair are almost like a comedy duo that love nothing more than laughing at each other’s mistakes. It just goes to show that poker is not always serious business, especially when these two are around.
