    Watching poker in real time is very boring unless you are a hardcore player.

    Antonio seems wrong way more than he is right with his analysis

    I preferred a bigger winner payout rather than spreading the money out over more losing players

    Yeah. I enjoy it, but I know it's bad for the game. Poker can be boring and tedious when you're playing, let alone if you're just casually browsing through channels. If anything it chases people away from the game, not brings them into it (like with the boom that happened post-Moneymaker). They should broadcast it a day or two later, cutting it up and editing it so that most exciting hands are shown. Otherwise, you're just wasting lots of time waching in between hands, on breaks, boring hands that never even make it to the flop, etc.

    I wanted Negreanu to make it - he came so close.
