Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

Considering how loaded this final table is you'd think they would've quickly stuck a commentator in.

Anyone see the tweet by Moorman on 3k HU payouts. Have to agree the payouts are awful

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

This is epic failure. Are they really gonna show 30 or so events with this sort of production?

i think the most important ones will have commentary. I remember the one where hellmuth got second after losing to brian (rast?) had commentary.

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

Is it really so hard for WSOP to follow what PS and EPT have been doing for several YEARS now? their streams are always brilliant and work well and they are catering to a very large international audience... amazing how poor the quality of this stream is...I feel like I am watching Live at The Bike from 2007

Someone else tweeted about this yesterday to Negranu think it was Dan kelly but might be wrong, he was asking if he was still on some WSOP panel. Gotta agree its a strange structure

Well they obviously view the online side as pretty unprofitable and impossible to make substantial sums of money from so they are putting out the cheapest product they can and ensuring it can't enfringe on the main event tv shows which are profitable.

Thats because it was the 50k players championship via ESPN.

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

Ok so can see what cards are in the middle but is really hard to work out who is in the pot, the chipstacks. etc. All I know is that some bald guy in the middle has won two pots and seems to ahve a lot of chips

Re: ***OFFICIAL WSOP SWEAT THREAD***

What i want to know is who built this system and who VIEWED it and said "Yup, this looks great, let's broadcast it just like that"... they probably gave each other high fives and had a few drinks for the victorious streaming service they have put together...

this is just ****** awful...

This is not our feature table stream. That is still being set up. Hopefully in a couple days we will have that ready to go.

I know u r not defending them, but there is really no excuse, regardless of what they say...they have had months to prepare and why shouldn't the system be ready from the first event? there is always an excuse for poorly executed plans.
