7 card stud on T.V.????

Postby Lenny Dykstra » Tue Jul 27, 2004 11:53 pm

Is it me or is it really not that exciting?I think E.S.P.N is ruining the world series of poker this year by changing the usual format we became used to throughout the years.I dont need to see 7 card stud I dont need to see Annie Duke & the rest of the WSOP losers play "BLIND HOLDEM"JUST SHOW HOLDEM.thats it nothing more nothing less.Just because its been getting great ratings the last couple of years that doesnt mean you have to change it.If it aint broke dont fix it.

I admit that 7 card stud and Omaha isn't as exciting as Hold 'Em, but personally, I enjoy watching all of it. :-) If things work out, I'll be entered into the main event next year and maybe a few of the smaller ones. :-)

Anyway, ESPN is trying to capitalize on the boom in the poker world right now. I don't blame them at all for that. I have a few friends who can't stand Stud or Omaha, so you are not alone by not liking to see it on tv. ;-)

Celebrity poker is so-so. Some of them know how to play and some of them are truely clueless about the game. Sometimes it's very funny to watch and others it's unbelieveably boring. I've got a mixed opinion on it myslef.

Very slow. Let them come to me since I have the *nuts*. Milk them for all they are worth and once the river card comes out, I put them all in since they cannot win the hand.

*For all you perverts out there, in poker "having the nuts" means you have the best hand and cannot be beaten.

I enjoy seeing new poker games, that's how I found out about hold em in the first place.
