I have often pondered the relevance of playing online poker with a webcam. Having read the comments in this thread though, it has got me thinking.
Most of the tourneys that require webcams, such as on 888
are relatively low buy in and relatively low prize funds.
I understand the argument about some idiots who play in their underwear or something stupid, but imagine!......... What if a regularly played tourney, with say a $215 buy in on a Sunday night, REQUIRED you to play with a webcam, do you think you would? Do you think people would avail themselves of webcams to simply play this game?
I think the seriousness of the tourney, and the buy in, would determine the level of competence or stupidity of the players in that tourney.
