Interested to hear what he said if anyone's got a link?
Here's the whole 10 minute interview... http://www.fan590.com/media.jsp?content=20110119_164139_10824
Go to 2 minutes into it, then at about 6:30 or 40. Several problems. Negreanu is not restricted, as Poker Stars
is very liberal. He might get special treatment being their biggest pro star, IDK. But Full Tilt is not so liberal, and will restrict their pros from an event like this, which is clearly in competition with online. Also, there is no revenue to support this. All the tour biggies are actually largely supported by PS, FT, et al. And Daniel contends that she didn't consult her top 200 to see if they would even participate.
I'd have to imagine the logistics would be a problem. If Gus Hansen and Patrik Antonius can't make it to the WSOP in Vegas in a timely fashion, why will they jump on this? He also mentioned the attraction of dead money fish, which will not be present here. And also that there were so many other poker tours, often going on at the same time, so no lack of options or want for action.
