I never understood why the sports media started covering poker a few years ago. Oh, yeah, because it aired on ESPN. Silly me. Anyway, today I'm grateful that everyone was fooled into acting like poker had some sports connection because it allows me to introduce you to Megan Abrigo
, Q&A here
). Many of you in Hot Clicks Nation have written in about Abrigo. She is the co-host of the new NBC show, Face the Ace
. The show airs on Saturdays at 8 p.m. and here is the premise via NBC: "The show features four smoked-glass doors that hold behind each a world-class professional poker player. In each episode, one or more lucky contestants get to pick an 'Ace' and their opponent will emerge from behind one of the doors. They will play an exhilarating heads-up no limit hold'em game that requires aggression, poise and bluffing."
