"Welcome Back Kotter" actor and top celebrity poker pro Gabe Kaplan provided a gem via his Twitter page this week.  It's a sports broadcast where he interviews the "three greatest poker players" at the time Doyle Brunson, Stu Unger and Chip Reese.


Kaplan tweeted out:

"Did a sports radio show back in the day. Just discovered something that poker players should enjoy listening to. It's an interview from 1990 with Doyle, Stuey and Chip. A little dated in attitudes but still fun to hear the three of them together."

This was part of a Sports Nuts program where listeners could call in to chat with their favorites.

Gabe asked Chip "What makes a good poker player?'

"It's a people business like a lot of other businesses," Reese observed.  "You have to look across the table at a man you've never seen before, decide whether he's got it or he doesn't have it.  I don't think it matters whether you are a Harvard MBA or a guy who's never made it past the second grade.  Some people have that instinct and some don't."
