That televised table with the pros was a joke. What a ridiculous setup for the fish.

Stacking tables like that for a broadcast is wsop shady.

They don't stack the tables. Pay attention.

I never said they stack the tables, I said they stacked the televised table.

Is that just a bad riggey theory I guess.

They pick a stacked table for the tv table. They don't stack a table to create a TV table out of thin air.

This. Beyond tilting that people can't grasp this concept.

The concept is clear .. It's just that 'really', the randomizer put put Hastings, Grinder and Ho all at the same table? There are over 2000 people wandering around with seat cards and this table just popped up!

I play in much smaller MTTs and rarely do I see more than two 'top names' at the same table. And I've basically never ended up at a starting table against any of my fellow cash regs even though we don't register 'together'. GL

It's really not that surprising at all. Played in the main in Montreal and sat at a table with Shaun Deeb and isildur. There could have been more mtt pros too, I just don't follow mtts. The field in that tournament had about 25% of the field in the wsop main also.

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

People who think the drawing are rigged don't understand math, variance, randomness, and simple examples like the birthday problem.

For every table with 3-4 big names, there are a handful with 2 big names, a few hundred with 1 big name, and another few hundred with all unknowns.

Which is why table draw in the main event is usually a big part of success that people claim, how good their day 1-5 table draws are.

I get a blank black screen in the PokerGo App on my Nvidia Shield Android-based device every time, while the stream runs fine in Chrome on the same device or in PC browser. Anyone else have this problem? My plugins are all updated.

I don't know what device your talking about but when I use amazon fire stick and the next day go back there, it usually does that and I have to load something else like espn and then go back to pokergo and then it works.

What's going on with this guy's name? It was Jensen earlier in the day, now it's Brink. It's Jensen on Pokernews.

Not sure which session you are referring to but both Jeff Gross and Shaun Deeb have been in the booth as well as a few lesser known tournament Pros. I was impressed with Deeb in the booth for the short time I listened to him and I also thought his voice sounded different than when he's at the table.

I love how whenever there is a third person in the booth with Ho, they somewhat discount her very nitty lines and then she has to backtrack or fight for her point a bit more. That would seem to lead to her being a 'cashing' Pro rather than a 'champion' Pro perhaps? GL
