After all, it doesn’t look like the changes will be that extreme as they seem when this subject came to public. It is only a little re-schedule. This must have something to do with other commitments, or else they wouldn’t have nothing to win with the changing.

so if they play 8 people final table and do it in october, couldn't they just go for a name like october 8, lol, it was funny to me to see those november 9 dudes coming to play like hollywood stars- a great show, but a show is a show and nothing more- that summarizes poker quite well- it is a big show these days

I been following a lot more of the playing this past year and I think the change is due to the timing of other events that take place in Vegas in early November. I mean NASCAR finishes at this time and has their championship celebration in Vegas now. Another thing is ratings are better when there's no breaks betwen the days! Just an opinion though!

Posted by LimburgCwboy: If they now play a final table with 8 players, they can call it, with a bit of Spanish mixed in) The October Ocho
The coverage on ESPNDeportes would likely deem it "El Ocho de Octubre". lol I echo most of the other sentiment here, as this scheduling change dovetails with the NFL, NBA & NHL kicking off (but before heating up), with the World Series of MLB having completed.
Still holding my breath on those live nosebleed cash games in Macau to be televised/heavily promoted.
