Yes this is a great live stream.

I was watching yesterday. The commentators are fun and they invite guest pros to comment on the action.

It's a light production - meaning that there are no hole cards on a delayed feed. This is live show and there is a free roll to play along side if you wish.

Been loving the live stream, despite only being able to watch day 3 onwards on the android app.

Did unfortunately miss all but half an hours worth of the final table whilst they were 4 handed. didn't get back till all was said and done.

Loved Stapes' and Hartigan's commentary. Some what bummed that I never heard Stapes singing the 'agent Kalfond' theme. The jokes about him and Anzar of the hill people were definately the hightlights, commentary wise.

Bring on EPT London!

Yes it was great,

I thought the Special Agent Kalfond theme was hilarious.

Excellent contributions from the professional poker players and organisers.

Looking forward to the coverage of EPT London.

I thought this was really interesting. Seeing every hand at a feature table from the very early stages on day 1 through to the final table was new to me, and gave a great insight into how a major poker tournament runs. The commentary was generally entertaining and most of the guest pros analysis was good - especially as many were playing in the tourney, including the guy who bust in 8th place giving some analysis of the closing stages.

Plus I learnt some new poker terms - like 'Standatory'.

The French gaming rules were different, which confused me a bit, as reraises had to be double the bet they were following, so no min-reraises. The cards were face down throughout, which I think I prefer as it keeps the tension more than knowing what hole cards are held before the hand plays out. The bubble phases were really interesting, and the final table had a lot of action and would be well worth watching again when they upload it.

Looking forward to London EPT stream in March.
