That's an interesting statement: Would this mean we should hide big tournament scores from public scrutiny, too? If we did this it would mean poker being played in shady backrooms like they once were with no information about anything going on.
PERFECT POKER MARKETING STRATEGY:
a) Make big wins very public, to encourage people that it can be done.
b) Make losing entries private, to obviate the shame and embarrassment at being a loser at poker so the player can chase the dream without feeling bad about it
c) Avid bracelet hunters are Caesar's Entertainment's best friends (prized revenue workhorses)
