Default Why No cash games

I dont get why these tv networks love showing some of the biggest tournaments in the world but the dont show any cash games. I think cash games would be just as or more exciting than tournaments because 1) you would see the top pros at the table not just some scrub who happened to have the luckiest week of his life to get top the final table. and 2)There more money out on the table that the person has personally invested so it is much more personal and risky. Also I would just like to see a change from the same old final table tournament I would like to see gus hanson and Phil hellmuth play headsup in a cash game or something I would love to watch something like that.

Actually, they do. It's called High Stakes Poker, and it airs on GSN.

If you didn't know there's a new show called High Stakes Poker where the pros start with a buyin of $100,000 of their own money. It airs regularly on Sports Center so if your interested its pretty fun to watch. I've seen Daniel Negranu lose almost $1,000,000 on that show which was interesting because he still didn;t go on tilt. Thats the mindset we should all have.
