Elite 48 will be a great show, just a shame they wont show it here untill 2278 at 3.30AM on a tuesday.
But with a bit of luck a well known site migh show the action...OR bankrollmob might want to pay for my entry!...around 250k members here if we all chip in $1.....

Imo there must be more tourneys with buyin $100K+ , why wud Iveys, Dwans, Ziggy's go play a tourney for 3 days (traveling, expenses, ect) for just a $10K buyin nowadays?
There are so many Iveys nowadays who can pay these high buyinns easily.
So i expect many more $50K+ buyinns events in the near future.
