Poker tournaments have been televised in the past with much success. What makes the WPT different is that they film the most prestigious tournaments in an arena specifically designed for television and air them during a regularly scheduled season. The technology that allows viewers to see hole cards, combined with expert commentary, and a live audience, gives poker the feel of a mainstream sporting event.
The World Poker Tour uses state-of-the-art technology and on-air graphics to let the TV viewer know what cards a player is holding. This adds a dramatic element to the game because television viewers know what each player has and thus be able to get inside the mind of a professional poker player. When a player moves "all-in" for example, the viewer knows whether or not he is bluffing.
