Too Many "Big Pot" Recaps
Is it me, or does there seem to be a lot more articles talking about this player or that player taking down a big pot or they won a couple hundred thousand, etc.Â Â Now, I understand some of the articles that are involving big time players like Daniel Negreanu winning a decent amount on a Televised poker show.Â That is more or less a show review with an angle.Â However, what is up with telling us about xyz player winning a 100k pot on PokerStars or Full Tilt.
Big money pots are common in high stakes games.Â That is a fact.Â However, do these big pots really deserve articles?Â Is there really so little going on in the poker world that you have to report on these pots?
If someone wins $700k or more in a session, that is something newsworthy.Â If Isildur1 drops a Million in a session, that is newsworthy.Â If someone breaks the record for single largest pot online, that is newsworthy.Â However, someone winning a $120k pot is not that big a deal at these stakes.
It could be worse.Â It could be a blog post complaining about people writing articles about $120k pots.Â Oh wait...too late.
