The archive of Season 3 of Poker After Dark completed Thursday on PokerGO with the addition of “Commentators Week” as the final block of episodes. The lineup featured a dressed down Ali Nejad looking to redeem his quick bust from his first turn at the PAD felt with Phil Gordon, Robert Williamson III, Howard Lederer, Chad Brown and Mark Gregorich.
Nejad had home turf advantage as the voice of PAD, Lederer and Gregorich worked on “Poker Superstars”, Brown voiced “The Ultimate Poker Challenge” and Williamson and Gordon appeared on ESPN for the World Series of Poker.
Right out of the gate Williamson endeared himself to the poker community by slowrolling Lederer. The hand began with Williamson holding pocket nines, Lederer flopping a pair of kings and Willliamson turning a set.
Howard Lederer did not appreciate the needle.
On the river Williamson bet $3,250, Lederer tank-called and Williamson said, “Got a set, I’m sure you got this beat,” and laughed. He turned over his cards and Lederer looked to Gordon to ask what was said. Lederer mucked his hand and was visibly displeased.
Nejad called out Gabe Kaplan for ducking him – who won the “Battle of the Sexes” that Nejad was the first to bust. “You know, there have been some really good players that finished in sixth place I’ll have you know,” he said.
“This is probably a pretty tough table for analysts this week,” Williamson said.
“This isn’t analyst’s week,” Nejad replied. “This is five people you know and one dude whose voice sounds familiar.”
Ali Nejad returned as the voice of Poker After Dark on PokerGO.
Through the first two episodes the table stayed six-handed but sounded like twice as much with all the chatter. Watch all the latest episodes of Poker After Dark available in The Vault section of PokerGO, as well as the “The Return of Tom Dwan.”
