Home of the soon-to-be-built "Pokerdome". Heh.

Didn't monster truck racing die out because of overexposure like this?

Did you seriously just compare poker to monster truck racing?

No, not poker, just overhyped, over-the-top events like a $60 million SNG with something called a "Pokerdome". It just reeks of cheesiness.

Well there's a 20 million dollar overlay.

USD 60M = AUD 80M. No overlay, just sloppy writing in the article.

Well, if they're quoting the pool in AUD then wouldn't the $10 million entry fee be in AUD also? Enquiring minds want to know.

Well, I'm no expert, but coming from an aussie news site I'd guess they don't print out AUD when speaking of their own currency ("the $80 million kitty"), and I'd guess they do when speaking about foreign currenicies ("Players will pay $US10 million").

Quoted from mansionpoker.net:

"The state-of-the-art dome contains a poker table, complete with an automated card tracking system, integrated chip counting capabilities, hole card-cam and robotic cameras focused on each player's face. The Pokerdome also comes equipped with special cameras and card technology that allows viewers to see the burn cards - or discarded cards - before dealers flip the active cards, plus a rabbit-hunting camera for each hand, letting fans know what would have happened if each hand went to completion."

Ready for 43 weeks of rabbit hunting?
