This is the level of both camera work and commentary that I was expecting when I first heard the news about the live streaming . Poker has once again given up major EV to other programs , sure I'm pleased that it is there but as far as content rarely is anything more interesting than good table talk, that said when there is quality commentary combined with camera work it is easy to watch. Next year let's see the same production values as the ONE DROP coverage if not better.
What about the payouts does anyone think $3mil less for 1st approx $1mil less for second spread out over the rest of the spots makes for a more balanced table ? Everyone will still play for first , with the added knowledge that making moves isn't completely punished.

Hi MANILA RE. It's good to see you joining in the conversation. You can check out the major features of our site here.

I think the prize structure is a little top heavy. But I was not going to enter whatever the structure was, so I guess it does not matter.

Good luck
Doug

This was the reason I didn't enter. Oh, yeah, that and I don't have a million dollars. But mostly this.

Invest it wisely and play to your heart's content - you would think with a BR this big it would be hard to go bust.

it won't be 18 mil... remember, the gov't will end up taking probably about 1/2 of it.

John (JWK24)

P.S. I'd be happy with 1 mil.. invest it and never work again.... except on my golf game and poker game.

For sure, invest in property. Venture into new avenues for passive income. Buy another property for myself. Hire stewards. Lead a king's life playing poker. And most importantly, don't bust out.

my 2 cents.....

million $ buy in........don't think he was playing for the money.....l think true gamblers play for the win...not the money,

Now on winning 18 million........think l would be dead in a month....hiccup,

l have no self control...lol

cheers all

18 Million $$$$$$$

Like JW said, the government takes 8 million
!0 Million invested at 4-5%, that's $500,000 a year
Just enough to play all Main Events that poker can offer (including travel, lodging and expenses)

Not enough, glad I didn't win...........LOL
