I have no problem with them running it as many times at they want. As others have pointed out, it's alot of money and it's theirs so they can do what they want. It doesn't make for quite as good TV, but the world doesn't revolve around making good TV.

Also, I don't care what stakes you play, pointing out Jamie Gold is terrible is perfectly valid. Maybe his bad play results more from "I don't care about the money" than it does from incompetence, but it's laughably bad by anyone's standards.

Guy is also terrible, but since he's mostly quiet and nice nobody bothers to rag on him as much. If Gold wants to make himself the center of attention then so be it.

People who berate fish could learn alot from these episodes. I was cracking up as everyone at the table was trying to soothe Gold's ego to keep him in the game.

i'm pretty sure that when it comes to tv shows, the world does, in fact, revolve around making good tv.

but... it's a TV SHOW where the players are playing THEIR MONEY. If GSN wants to set all the terms, GSN can supply the buy-ins.

I want to see players playing their money in a high stakes game. Thats entertaining to me. I don't want to see a PAD type show where players are basically freerolling. This is a large chunk of some of their bankrolls, which is what makes it exciting. The tradeoff for us as viewers is that the players need to be able to mitigate some of the variance they experience. That means running it multiple times.
