An incredible final table field combined with the biggest tournament prize ever made tonight's stream of The Big One $1million buyin a really good watch. The selection of players was perfect: You had a mix of pros and businessmen, with some from online backgrounds while other being from the old guard - even Hellmuth was there. Of course, one of my favourite parts was that Guy Laliberte, who set the whole thing up, made it there.
I won't post the results here, not that it would be that hard to find the result out by accident, but it was really fun sweating it out.
I feel televised poker has really taken a nose dive recently, but something like this has the potential to be thrilling. Just make the next one a $10 million buy-in to recreate that effect.
