re: Poker & Interesting thought
A few things random observations:
1 - Apparently these games already exist. They're in Moscow. The new-rich oil barons and all that. So Tony G tells
us, at any rate.
2 - Word during this year's World Series was there were barely a handful of pros who had enough cash in their Vegas boxes to play in whatever fanciful high-stakes game ideas were being thrown about (a $5K/$10K NL game, from memory - keep in mind the Big Game only plays $4K/$8K limit
or $100K cap pots in NL).
That'd probably be an attraction for the mega-rich, actually - if it was a game that almost no poker pro could afford to buy into, maybe the whales would have a chance to win for a change
3 - It'd have to be live. No way in hell is an online room ever going to be baller enough.
