wow, just brutal.
Sorry, it wasn't my intention. Mind to explain how is it brutal to point out how odd it is for the freeroll to give 80% of the prizepool to the 1st place winner? Not to mention only 10 out of 20k+ players will win anything

Freeroll registration has started.Better sign up quickly before it`s full.
watched most of the show, apparently not the part that revealed the password.I guess thats my penalty for taking care of my kids, on my wife's birthday.Give the show a C+, better than Face the AceEDIT: nevermind password works, ALLCAPS

I was agreeing with you - now for a second time as it turns out. My original post was a statement of disbelief of the Dolly Parton structure. But what the hell, it's free. No complaints.Tourney # is 202251128 for those that like to use the tourney finder thingy.

Overall it was enjoyable:Pro's-The celeb aspect is fun-Chris Rose is a good host-I was ok with the fast structure. It moved things along so you could get all 3 rounds in.-Hot women-Was enjoyable enough to pull non-poker players in to watch.-Daniel did a good job as the pro, he was spot on with a lot of the tells, especially Salley's.Con's-Like someone mentioned the small talk is dumb. "So Vanessa what do you do for fun." "So Vanessa you graduated college in 3 years." It just was awkward.-For poker players it is laughable. Not unwatchable, but laughable. I'm guessing that poker players are not the target audience though. No folding pre-flop at all.-It seemed like the pro's (Daniel and Vanessa) made some moves that they wouldn't always make to make the TV show better. I'm not saying this actually happened, it just looked this way. For example, Daniel would you have made that all in move with the straight draw in a real tournament? I'm referencing that hand at the end of the show.Other suggestions and observations-Somehow get the celebs and pro's who aren't playing involved. Involve them in a conversation, throw around insults, something like that.-Yeah the dealer was hot, but it looked awkward with Daniel sitting next to the guy in the first round. What if Daniel was the dealer just for the first round?-Vanessa never used her "shut off Daniel" option. She should have used it when she went all in with 7 3.Thats all I got for now.

-Target is casual players & amateurs not, regsDN also said this is a game show first, so everyone should not be expecting HSP obv.
I liked the show a lot better than Face the Ace.Oh, and, I busted from the freeroll with QQ < ATo...lol.

Enjoyed the show but missed the last 5 mins with a cranky baby. While the small talk was awkward I found myself thinking , what would I say to Vanessa ? Hey, err, Wanna make out ? Also interesting that she plays the drums.
