Default Venetian Reschedules NPL Televised Tournament for Bellagio Bustouts

from www.myspace.com/allenkessler blog

Venetian Rescheduling to Accomodate Bellagio Bustouts


After some coaxing, the Venetian decided to change the start time of tomorrows $2500 event to 3pm with late signups all the way until 5pm. This move will allow players who chose to play the huge field $2000 buyin tourney at Bellagio and bust out in the first 5 full hours a chance to play a $2500 televised tournament.



The Venetian also stated that for thee $2500 event tomorrow (the 28th) there will be a featured table which will be televised. This will be done similar to the broadcast style of the WSOP opening day Main event coverage and Taj USPC Daily coverage. The Featured table will rotate every 1 to 2 levels to allow many players a shot at being on national Television.



The final table will come back to play on the 29th. and will be televised as well.

If national television is considered to be a channel that can only be seen on HD and a "superstation" late nights, then good luck Allen.

I am at the Venetian now and have heard nothing about this change...but will attempt to confirm this prior to going over for todays Bellagio $2k event

I believe Allen K did play at yesterdays final table ,and came in 2nd [img]/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

He was also certainly voicing his complaints(and rightfully so) about the NPL mess to the various suits running the show...as this NPL thing has been a disaster as of now!

OliverT is claiming that this tournament will be aired on CBS television and WGN. Is this really the case?

I played the first 2 $2500 and they were really weird. The first one, on Sunday, was a super soft whereas the 2nd one was full of vegas pros. I suspect the rest of them may only have pros in them due to poor advertising, but who knows. Hopefully I can busto from bellagio quick so I can get some tv time.

According to this article, (and what Oliver has said), it's 7 million.

[ QUOTE ]
The Comcast-owned G4, currently at 64 million subscribers, and the 7 million-subscriber Mojo high-definition channel, owned by video-on-demand content aggregator In Demand, will air episodes of Heroes the same week those installments debut on NBC, beginning Oct. 29.
