Also, the chubby announcer is so annoying it makes me yearn for Norman Chad

On a side note, one of the episodes a few weels ago only had three hands that weren't taken down preflop and the three that weren't, were all in pre flop.

Also, the announcer (chubby) one is way off. For example, a player goes all-in pf K-10 and is called A-J. The flop comes KKQ. The AJ pulls a flush by the river and the aforementioned announcer calls this a "bad beat" even though AJ was ahead when all the $ went in.

As far as the playing, while I agree it is not top level, I just watched an episode tonight that had some good plays (imo) being made.

Ive seen most of the episodes and have played in many of the tournaments. Both of which are top notch. Easy to sit back and be critical but im assuming none of the complainers have played in the tournaments or much less are trying to produce a show

people have said it was dull and unimpressive. Not really scathing criticism, just stating that many have been dull. How would you describe an episode that only shows four hands that get to see a flop?

Also, no one said that the experience of playing in them wasn't top notch, I've heard that they have all been run very well, but that doesn't always translate to exciting episodes.

Seriously, the tourney I saw was super-fishy. Like calling a large-sized all in with QJs fishy.
