There sadly are never threads and posts anymore, really, so I wanted to make one. I've been watching the ESPN coverage for the first time in years this year (guess I picked the right year to do it) and wondered what everybody's thoughts are. Obviously, the Kassouf stuff is the most notable, but Josephy as the chip leader is amazing, and there's been a lot that's gone on, leading up to the final table this weekend. Does anybody have a thought on who will win? On who they want to win? Do people still like the act of having a November Nine, compared to just playing the whole thing in July? Is anybody going to watch a live final table? I know I plan to, but it's not easy to do, obviously.

I have not watched any of it (except the Kassouf thing).
I really do think it was better when they went straight to the final table, instead of waiting until November

Agreed, because in those days I didn't stay up all frickin' night.

Agreed.  I can't believe he played that timid against a laggy player

They start the Main Event right around 4th of July, so they get down to a Final Table around July 17, when the MLB All-Star Game is. I always thought it would be great to hold the final table on the dead day after the All-Star Game and before games start again -- the only day of the calendar year none of the 4 major sports are in season or holding a draft -- start at like 3pm (noon in Vegas) and play it all the way down.

i love this idea....ive never been on board with waiting to play the final table in november...under this scenario you can still show the table live and still would have viewers

Problem is they want to televise the entire tournament in an entertaining format.  It takes time to produce that.
