Televised Cash Games on Game Show Network
I just read this story (which I found via http://loveablerogues.blogspot.com/) on cash game poker on TV. I've blogged before that I want to see ring games on TV -- so, like, cool.
However, I don't know whether to laugh or cry at the first few lines of the article:
It's what's known as a "cash game." Unlike the tournament-style shows that currently dominate cable networks, players will risk large amounts of their own money, and can cash out--or dig into their wallets for more funds-at any time.[text-based sarcasm alert] Players risking their own money? Cashing out? Digging into their wallets? Surely you jest. [end text-based sarcasm]
yeah, the players do get paid over $1,000 an hour...but the minimum 100,000 buy in is their own (or whoever bought a piece of 'em)Post a Comment
