This is a discussion on Maria Ho - one of the final 6 at the WPT Seminole Hardrock Poker Showdown within the online poker forums, in the Poker News and Events section; The WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown began with 1,360 players and is now down to the final six, one of whom is Maria Ho.
While hosting final tables from tournaments around the country in Las Vegas at the Luxor Esports Arena is probably good for TV revenue, it does rob local poker communities of exposure and income.
That having been said, Go Maria!
I agree with you, but I think she is able o play in many side events and often the main event and if she is eliminated she obviously has her hosting duties. Making a final table is not easy so hosting is likely a nice supplement.
