They should get rid of the hole card camera completely. Sure it's fun for the viewers. I enjoy it too, but I'm with Ivey on this. If I don't want the world to know my game, that should be my choice.
Well it technically is your choice, Since you have a choice to play in the tournament or not but when you register for the tournament you have to sign a contract letting them reveal your hole cards, after you do this it is no longer your choice.
I don't mind not being able to see the hole cards while they are playing but to let the payers be able to see it is dumb..
Pros benefit from this much more then amateur players
It's inconsistent, since players couldn't do this before the Final table
It kind of ruins the game, its giving the other player too much information for less, in other words the player can just fold and get the same info he wanted to see if he called
IT also could make it easier to pick up tells
rather it be from body language facial expression or a betting pattern
