I'm watching the stream now (replay, obv), but this is the first time im a long time I've been excited to watch poker on TV... I have a feeling this may have positive echos in the poker economy.
+1 and I think/wish ESPN, and of course the PPA, would do more to promote the amount of $$ donated to charity. Not sure of the exact figure, but I heard around $5 mil from the tourney itself, and several of the players donated all their winnings to charity as well. And what is the typical amount of taxes payed on an $18.2 mil score?? Probably close to $8-9 million? But it's such an awful game...zomg ban it!
Ahhh but bingo isn't gambling....
