Ugh the lineup sucks but Dwan is amazing, wtf does Antonio offer? He's a boring nit. Daniel has to be my most hated play ever, he's so self-righteous. He makes EVERYTHING about him. Talking about folding QQ 'I WAS GONNA FOLD ANYWAY' as if it's a massive fold in that spot that deep. Just fold and shutup.

Who's the old woman?

Lol at Antonio being a nit, and DNegs is one of the most loved ever not the most hated.

How long is the PAD episode? Is it a normal hour long edited episode, or is it a stream of the entire play?

That was so tilting I wish someone would have told him to stfu and always stop being so polite to that worm. He actually thinks hes so cool when in reality hes a massive douche, plus he is terrible at cash games.

Live stream of play which was about 6 hrs I think.

Thoughts on the first epi:

1. A+ on the set. Damn it's sharp.

2. Complain about the lineup all you want but the speed of play was very palatable and a welcome change from the lethargic pace of the WSOP. I'll take amateurs who play quick over the GTO online crushers who take 45 sec+ to make a simple decision. Most noticeably, Dwan has sped up his play drastically which is likely a function of conditioning from the Macau games where they are likely intolerant of slow play.

3. Only complaint is that I wish there was less commentary by Nejad while the players are talking. I'm more interested in the table talk about stories, etc than narration of play. I know it's a tough balance.

Can't wait to see more.

Re: PokerGO Subscription Service (please ** No Spoilers **)

I didn't pay for PokerGO for the WSOP because I don't really want to see Joe Nobody playing poker but paid for it yesterday.

Things Mori needs to change:

1. Need the old table back. This one seems really high and awkward, especially the bright purple.
2. Need a WAY better hostess, that girl was just flat out terrible.
3. Commentary was somewhat non-existent for the 2 hours or so I watched. Ali Nejad either needs to start talking or he can just go altogether.

Things that were tilting to watch:

1. Lauren Roberts makes weird facial expressions. She looks like her botox is melting off her face.
2. JRB is an UBER NIT.
3. DNegs talking about folding his QQ when the real cooler was KK vs AA and that fold seemed very standard the way the action played out and how deep they were.

Things that were great:

1. It's nice to see an unedited stream of the game i.e. not just the monsters
2. It's awesome to have Tom back in the mix
3. Bill Klein seems like a really good person

I have to disagree. This was easily one of the most enjoyable poker streams I have seen. Was the level of poker at the level it would be with some online crushers? No and that has never been the TV High Stakes Cash goal. But the table talk and overall mood of the table was just a joy to watch. Made you wanna play poker with your friends. Also I guarantee you that Daniel is not the most hated poker player for people who are not on 2 + 2. He may in fact be the most popular. These guys are busting balls and having fun. That's what you do when you are around a group of friends and are drinking and gambling (see Bill Simmons Vegas Trip reports . I for one really enjoyed it.

Also not sure if it was discussed but Antonio asked Dwan about the Jungleman challenge and a short discussion ensued re same. Really interesting stuff.

Lauren Roberts is definitely high on something. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that one out.

I liked it. At first I thought everything looked a little too sharp and shiny. The overall look and feel didn't completely remind me of the PAD I used to watch. But I like what it is. It was great having Dwan there. I'm a big fan of minimal commentary in this format. Table talk or even silence sometimes is ok by me.

Weird AF to see a slightly older, thinner Dwan just...you know...back in the mix with a 600K stack. I for one would love to have Gabe doing some commentary and Antonious back in the mix. Was re-watching some HSP recently and some of PA's lines were absolute GOLD.

Couldn't agree more. Gabe is sorely missed. Patrick and PI are not super talkative but just add so much by their aura. Its something that is hard to put a finger on but they def increase the ballerness (I understand this is not a word) quotient exponentially.

Re: PokerGO Subscription Service (please ** No Spoilers **)

My biggest complaint about the host, which is a common theme for hosts / tv personalities in similar roles, is that she didn't really converse with the players when she did the 1-on-1 interviews. She had her laundry list of questions and just hammered them out in order instead of listening then reacting with follow-up questions. To be fair, Tweeden was much the same way.

I know this was her first show so I hope that she can improve on the quality of the questions as we see her grow in the role.

Got my $10 for the poker after dark content.

Is the sound really messed all the way through? Streaming to my TV using chromecast and the commentator is extremely loud while i can hardly hear what any of the players are saying.

Lol now the players are loud and can't hear Nejad.

JRB was jet lagged last night he might be more energetic on today's episode.

Best line was when JRB goes to Klein: That was like 28 dollars to him (dwan). Klein goes ".....yeah its like that for me too"

I was wondering what was going on with her facial ticks. It's damn weird looking what she is doing. Did she have plastic surgery?

Cool, I look forward to him being an even more hardcore rules/fun police and trying to direct the show...

The replay of yesterday is available on go. It's not broken up into episodes, just 6 hours of almost solid playing.

It's absolutely horrible and makes it almost unwatchable because of the differences.They can't be playing the "we're new at this" card anymore with an entire summer of WSOP events behind them.

The fake Aria window behind them is super tilting too with the screwed up aspect ratio.
