    I completely agree with what is said above about televising more events. I would like to see the Champions 50k event and a few other card games represented.

    Also, the comment about streaming live is better is spot on.. I have watched other venues do this and it is always great coverage for true plays and fans of poker. With the bright lights of the TV out of the way more real poker is shown.

    Much more important than the choice to only focus on two events, I'd like to voice my distain for the whole November 9 thing..... I get it the format helps with raising the buzz and the $ from sponsors. That said, the format isn't a real tournament..... the best way I can state my case is....

    You can have 6000 people run 26 miles.... then stop the leaders where they are and put them back in place after 4 months of additional training and have them run 1/4 of a mile.... you may make more money televising that last 1/4 mile... but don't call it a marathon.

    Also, I'd like to see the last table played at the Horse Shoe on each increasing on the 40th 50th 75 ect. anniversary of the tournament..... I know that Ceasers may not own the property, and it has become impossible for one business to consider doing anything that promotes anything but themselves... but a little nostalgia would be cool every now and then. Remember, no revel in the roots of the WSOP tournament Ceasers.

    Those are being live streamed from WSOP.com. Much better.

    I really think they should at least consider televising all the 10k+ buy ins... That would at least give a variety of things to watch and not just hold em and not just 2 event
