Why would you want the hole card cam? I would think any real poker player would want to try to make his own read......The hole card cam sucks and should only be used to show the hands after the pot is won......Poker After Dark shows every hand.....thats why I like it......The problem with watching poker on TV is that when there are 10 minutes left to go in the show anyone with a brain knows who won and all the drama is gone.....The WSOP live on PPV is the only way to go....But they need about a 5 minute delay...a 15 minute delay if Sam Farha would happen to make the final table.....

I agree with you a little bit, but the public DEFINITELY does NOT. Poker on TV didn't go anywhere until they started with the hole cam.

And, actually, anybody who wants to figure out what the other players have should probably just go play on PokerStars or some other site.

Oh.....I completely understand why they have it.....Its all about ratings......Just dont have a clue why a poker player would want it.......it has turned superstar players into average players and I know for a fact the players for the most part hate it.......I mean it has made players multi millionaires also......and the chances to play for big money occur daily now......all because of the hole card cam and Chris Moneymaker

I think you answered your own question there. Poker players want it because it put millions of dollars into their pockets. People watching like it because you can see what the players are thinking.

Plus, a lot of times, it's like Alfred Hitchcock's "bomb under the chair" - the audience knows it's there, but nobody in the room does. And the tension mounts, after each card is turned over.

You could make the same argument for Doyle Brunson's SuperSystem. It turned a lot of superstar players into average players, too.

Poker after dark is probably the best poker on tv for the simple reason tha they do show every hand but I agree that when there is 5 minutes left in the show, you know who is going win the critical "all in" hand.  Showing it live on tv with a short delay would make things alot more interesting.  I dont like the idea of waiting till November though. 

How much interest is the casino making on the 64 million dollars in the prize pool over the next 5 months???

I wonder if one of the players at the final table requested to get paid at least the minimum they are guaranteed, if they would pay the person.

         Thanks Kirby

            I want to thank you for keeping us all updated on your quest to win the big one !   I bet you had a hell of a goodtime seeing some of those so called great players bite the dust . I hope next year you go further ! How about to the final table !  Its funny how poker got so big in a short time , I guess with good promoters and TV coverage anything is possible . I haven't played poker in years , but in the poker games I played in guys like that Matusow and Helmuth would get a severe beating for insulting other players like they do on TV !  I think its all for show , cause nobody can be that dumb to insult players like they do when money is involved .

          Great job Kirby .                RTP

Maybe it's because of the exchange rate on the Euro! They were only paying HALF what you paid to get in!

What if God forbid something happens to one of the players in the final table before November?
