Party should start a HS televised Cash Game World Series

Party has grown considerably, especially in the HS realm. So it's come time for them to do something over the top to let casual players become aware of where the actions at.

4 sessions of televised cash games broadcasted in regional markets with the other three viewable on Party TV.

Montreal Playground Club
Nottingham Dusk till Dawn
Sochi- not sure of affiliated casino
Online at Party Poker on reserved table.

Buy in 250-500k...online perhaps 100k.

Play and have some sort of declared winner... Not a SNG...but something in place where there are 2 advancers from the 4 tourneys to play in a 9 handed televised cash game in the Caribbean at there big Live MTT. The final contestant is a leaderboard winner online and is bought in by Party Poker.

This sounds more like a European series than a World series.

All the locations are miles away from each other. You ain't even going to get people going to more then one event. No one will go to Russia esp when you need a visa to go there.

It depends on the definition of the border between Europe and Asia Politically, the entire Krasnodar krai (region) of Russia is in Europe. Geographically, if the Great Caucasus watershed is assumed to be the border, then Sochi proper is in Asia, and so is the casino, though the rather uninhabited northern part of the Sochi metro is in Europe, making the Greater Sochi a Eurasian city. (Now I'll start referring to immigrants from Tuapse and Sochi as Asians, thanks for the idea )

But as Colin_Piddle said, the visa barrier is a huge turn-off. The income tax will be an even bigger one if its proper enforcement starts.

Re: Party should start a HS televised Cash Game World Series

They could host a big cash game at each of their live tournament stops that all the high rollers typically have been traveling to, hire a host or 2 and have it run perhaps revolving seat style instead of just a set/invite only lineup (if they are worried about it being too much setup/difficulty locking in guaranteed guests)

That's what I had in mind. Make it a semi pre sign up and a rich whale who wants to be on TV to fill an empty slot.
Having it at the live events works as advertising.

I wouldn't want people to travel. I'd want relatively local players.
As for Russia there's enough rich oligarchs to fill up any table with established pros.
