Re: Can we talk about how BS Pokergo.com is

Besides that, the commentary and analysis has been magnatudes better than anything in the past.

An aside to all that, John Smith is the real beast of heads up.

They will fail if they only stick to occasional events and limited original programming (e.g. PAD reboot).

The type of customer that would make or break this business will be more likely to toss them ten dollars a month if they felt there was a steady diet of poker to be found - regardless of where else it might reside on the Internet.
Agreed with this 100.

Re: Can we talk about how BS Pokergo.com is

TBH I paid for the year subscription with the discount promo code, but it's not going to be worth it in the end. It's only worth it for May through July. After that what is going to be streamed? Moreover, the "Vault" content is all crappy Poker After Dark Seasons 1 and 2. Why not have all the Poker After Dark and High Stakes Poker? Negotiate a license with the holder of the IP and get it on the damn app. I want to watch cash games not PAD sit n gos.

Also, what happened to the Super High Roller Bowl CASH GAME???? I mean if you're going to start your own stream at least run the cash game that you ran last year, which was pretty sick.

Re: Can we talk about how BS Pokergo.com is

So we have to pay for WSOP final tables this year and then on top of it, we only get a couple vents to watch? What kind of BS is this? Way to drop the ball WSOP. You had sucha good thing going. I would hands down pay for a subsrciption if you were airing all final table events, but this is crap.

Re: Can we talk about how BS Pokergo.com is

While I don't like having to pay to watch, and it sucks to have to wait sometimes days in between events (or the fact that event coverage typically starts late in the day on EST), I've got to say the quality of coverage and subsequent commentary have been far better than anything I've ever seen before. Especially enjoyed watching the SHRB, and also enjoyed the Matt Berkey doc (hadn't seen that one before). I'd recommend at least subscribing for the series.

Re: Can we talk about how BS Pokergo.com is

First off I like Norm and Lon, but Tuchman and all the random guests he had was the best format ever and was what made the WSOP live stream something to look foward to every summer. The new POKERGO format of just streaming NO LIMIT HOLDEM tourneys sucks ASS. I think the veiwers including myself would love to see the BIG BUY IN MIXED games, like the RAZZ, STUD and STUD H/L, OMAHA and OMAHA H/L and maybe even a few other different games. These game feature final tables LOADED with big names and highly skilled players that most poker fans I'm sure enjoy watching. Also, instead of putting David Tuchman on the side line to twiddle his thumbs why not let him LEAD streams on Norm and Lon's off days, or at least let him in the game sometimes. What a joke!

Have you ever heard the saying "If it ain't broke don't fix it"? Well it wasn't broke and you BROKE IT so please FIX IT!

POKERGO you have really screwed up what was a good thing in the WSOP summer live stream. Thanks alot for NOTHING!

I feel better now even though no one gives a ****.

Hah, I caught a bit of his commentary, but not enough to be thrown off by it. But I could see that.

I also second showing more of the mixed games.

Also, after having watched Jeff Gross' animated twitch stream over SCOOP, it's been pretty funny to see him much more reserved as a desk commentator.

Re: Can we talk about how BS Pokergo.com is

Watching HORSE FT, they are playing 7stud...cannot see the table cards at all. Pointless to watch.

The up cards are covered by the player graphic as well. What an abortion.

Re: Can we talk about how BS Pokergo.com is

Different criticism:

As a software developer and casual fan who enjoys watching high level tournaments, I am wondering who designed that website to have a homepage with a headline "Cristoph Vogelsang Wins" and a button "Watch."

Paraphrase: "Click this button to watch 40 hours of a poker tournament that Cristoph Vogelsang wins."

Typically when tournament replays are offered on websites or replayed on TV they are not marketed with a picture of the winner holding up his ring. I think it's time to fire the marketing guy.

Haha, just shared the site with a graphic designer friend, and he agrees. Feels like a beefed up Squarespace site. Any site that has a long band of content followed by 3 blocks probably is.

Re: Can we talk about how BS Pokergo.com is

I like the coverage of the final tables they are doing although its disappointing they are not airing more non NL holdem tournies. Also I like David Tuchman and his analysis..

Considering we have to pay this year I think having more coverage of a wider variety of final tables would have been much better.
