I got a DM this morning, apparently there will be FIVE final tables being streamed. The first one is June 26th.
Should have added:
$2,500 Mixed Holdem
Two $1,500 NL Holdem
$3,000 NL Triple Chance $25,000 6-max
The $25k 6-max final table will definately be worth watching.
There will certainly be alot of big names at that final table, playing for a HUGE prize pool.
The coverage of WSOP has decreased apparently, according to this information, however, the coverage of poker shows in general seems to be on the upswing because of PS and FTP sponsored shows. boooo on WSOP, those live feeds are great, as we all know by watching the PS tour live feeds.
Speaking from experience, streaming bandwidth costs a lot of money, even when purchased in bulk or in blocks. With the economy the way that it is, there's just not enough seed money lying around to pay for the cost of streaming all the final tables we saw last year. Nobody is more bummed out than I am, but that's the reality.
I don't know if I necessarily agree, as I think, if it was possible, and we know it isn't because of the recent decisions regarding the big two and the Vegas casinos, that the big two would jump at the chance to slap a logo on the stream and put up the feed, especially stars. But as for Bluff or the WSOP or any other organization, I would agree.
