Yes, I like this idea. This will increase the attractiveness of the program. The presence of amateur players will add to the unpredictable appeal of the game

I think so, adding amateurs would add an extra ingredient to the game.

Now that the Game of Gold has ended, if a second season happens would you want to see four amateurs included in the mix of poker pros? Why or why not??

I think it would be cool to have a couple amateurs included. A qualifying tournament for a couple spots would be an exciting idea.

I haven't seen the series, but why not!? Especially if one of the amateurs were me:LOL:.

However, it doesn't live up to the event title 'Game of Gold', with a quarter amateurs in the field.


A possible variant for a sequel 'Season 2' could be: 'Game of Gold - Battle Field' :

Round1:
16
Pro Player Battle ; 16 Amateur Player Battle:
--> (1.-8.) Pro Battle / main battle qualification > (9.-16.) Amateur Battle /disqualification

Round 2 - Mixed Battle:
8
Pro Player (9.-16.) vs. 8 Amateur Player (1.-8.) :
--> (1.-8.) Mixed Battle / main battle qualification > (9.-16.) Mixed Battle /disqualification

Main Battle - Game of Gold:
8
Round1 qualifier (Pro) vs. 8 Round2 qualifier (Mixed)

Yes, they could contribute new strategies or unexpected movements; as they are eager to learn and improve while playing.

Absolutely. i loved a former show where amateurs got to play against pros (saddly I can't remember the name). Adds a flavor of everyday people in the mix. Even better I would like to star in an episode of that!

Putting one amateur in the tournament could be exciting, not a semi pro, winner through 5 rounds of satellites.. simply a free ticket for anyone, nobody knows what he can ... :)

Yes, it would be a good idea to add amateurs to the show. I do not underestimate amateur players, we all know the Chris Moneymaker story. I would like to see games where amateur play against professionals. I would add one amateur to each team and if the amateur beats the pro, their team will win some bonus. Also I would like to see female amateurs.

Perhaps it would be interesting to invite an amateur to film the new season. But, an amateur will not be able to adapt among professionals and feel comfortable; he will be chosen last, which will reduce the chances of winning. If it is a separate team consisting of amateurs, then they will be more comfortable communicating with each other and acting against teams of professionals.

Obviously yes. Amaters should have a curriculum this way in poker tournaments and win their classification through tests or a tournament.

Why not add amateurs, even pros get beaten by them sometimes.

I would definitely put amateurs into the mix. Have not seen one single show for now but wherever poker is played there should be always room for non-pros so a game or in this case a show is profitabla to play.

Yes i think its a good idea specially some woman amateur like myself who are discovering the game and would truly appreciate the opportunity to win a good amount of money playing poker with pro which would not be possible otherwise.

The more the merrier bring them in. Heads up at the final table. One amateur, one pro.

Yes, I am for this idea, giving amateurs the chance to play with Game of Gold pros will give more atmosphere :)

Of course I would like it, it would be great to see 4 amateurs playing against the best in the world since in poker anything is possible, there could be a surprise victory

No to amateurs, please. I watched few minutes of season 1 and got bored. However I'm biased, everything seems boring now. More bright famous players like Phil Hellmuth, please.

Definitely yes! Who doesn't like a good Cinderella story including an obscure player coming from a town we didn't even heard of?
