The Poker Final Table, also known as the TV Table, has this half moon shape for a special reason. Many poker clubs put the table in position without understanding why and end up using it the wrong way.
This half moon table format has a right side to be placed and in most clubs people put it without even thinking why, and it is natural that this happens because dealers when they request the table position they are thinking about their work, that in the standard form they need to be able to look at the tournament director, be able to look at the blinds screen, in addition to being the way he sees the room.
But at the final table, it should be placed contrary to what is normal to place the other tables in the tournament, it is necessary for the cameras to frame all the players, and even if you do not broadcast like the BSOP, WSOP and major events, the final table is the center of all attention. In this way the people who are watching the audience want to see the players, and want to see the cards on the table.
For this reason the Final Poker Table has this format, with the dealer working with his back to the public, but allowing all players to be seen from the front.
Cool. I'll have to pay attention to that detail now; guess I need to make more final tables to notice... xD

re: Poker & Tablet format, table final.
I honestly can't grab your point there !!
You wrote so much to explain almost nothing. In clubs or in casinos, there is nothing wrong with the way the Final table is positioned. With or without cameras, the game is played and I never heard of any unfortunate event related to the table position having occurred.
No offence, just an opinion...

Is this different from many other tables? I have only been to one casino final table and didn't notice that.
