Pool, Poker & Pain – the next big reality show

Blair Thein, a veteran in the MMA world is said to be working on an exciting show that mixes three exciting disciplines – pool, poker and mixed martial arts.

According to his own words, Thein has been working on the concept of the show for nearly a decade and finally wrapped it up in the recent weeks. The contestants will travel all around the United States to compete in the above mentioned disciplines and will work side by side with some of the best coaches each industry has to offer.

Although the show is still a long way from being aired, many media experts involved in the project should be a surefire sign that it won't flop. The idea seems rather intriguing as it combines three very rapidly growing industries and the contestants will have to be at their best mental and physical game to have any chance of winning.
