    Sports are expensive to broadcast.

    Poker, not so much.

    I used to watch it when they first started showing the WSOP.

    The announcer would talk about how long they sat there, "he's been dealing with the mental fatigue of sitting there for 8 hours, what a poker athlete!"

    Shit like that. :jj:
