What I find deeply disturbing is that Joe Hachem whines about running bad more than any poker player I know. Once you win the WSOP ME, you should be fined for ever complaining about a beat.

Could the fact that khan was playing for a $8 MILLION first prize possibly have more to do with his excitement than the tv exposure?

Secondly, you only have to look at the latest episode of highstakes poker to see the tv coverage is directly related to non-poker antics as jman was completely snubbed because of his on tv composure.

Thirdly, can I assume you're doing this after watching an edited broadcast (and not because you were there live or watched the live broadcast)? Is it possible that the networks cut their few minutes of actual tv coverage to include high content action and is not representative of the majority of tv play? Imagine that the reason it's +EV to get excited on tv because fanboys like you get all wet about it? You do realize they record a lot more footage than they actually end up showing right?

Keep on Dozin in this sick life.

For smart thinking players the "acting" of the opponents is +EV.

Jail for you sir..
The guy has a right to say what he wants just as Khan had the right to do the monkey dance..If you don't like it play online forever..


This whole thread is silly - Televised Poker is a reality show and in my opinion the best damn reality show ... since the people are actually semi-genuine compare to the other crappy reality shows on mtv/vh1 etc.
Without Mike, Phil and the rest there would be no poker on television, period.

Actually I find it quite entertaining when they act up, thats why we watch. But I have to admit on Poker After Dark when they all blab at the same time it's very annoying, and there loud you can't even hear announcer speaking. On the other hand some of the dramatics and antics that come up naturally (due to a bad beat, etc.) is very entertaining. Remember these are true emotions on the spur of the moment.

As far as the players being too loud goes, blame it on the production crew. They are probably not indivualing mic'ing the players, which I think they do on ESPN for the final table. Plus they can lower the players when the announcer comes in. They can even have that happen automatically, that's audio101.

Unfortunately audio is the redheaded stepchild in TV.
