-- Favorite Celebrity Poker Show? (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=182342)

CPS has two big advantages to me: 1) the dealer (I can't stand watching the celebs mangle the cards - it's so distracting to me), and 2) Phil Gordon's insight (I find his commentary much more fascinating that Sexton and Van Patten; his observations on tells alone is outstanding). The red card "phone an expert" that WPT has is hokey, but I do like how they have 6 players. Otherwise, the CPS is a much smoother show.

If I were going to change the WPT:HHG, I would 1) add a dealer, 2) turn the lighting down to give it a seedier, Hollywood-style "Rounders" feel, and 3) in another way to add ambience, allow cigar smoking/alchol a la "Dinner for 5", to loosen the celebs up.
