    Sound familiar

    The numbers are in, and they are less than awesome. Despite a wildly positive reception from the poker community, elimination of the November Nine did not translate into significant increases in television ratings for the World Series of Poker.

    Viewership of the 2017 WSOP Main Event final table on ESPN decreased compared to 2016, which already delivered some of the lowest numbers for poker on TV in the post-Moneymaker era.

    I would rather watch the World Series of Monopoly or Yahtzee then watch a bunch of introverts with sunglasses on playing cards.

    Pretty sure WSOP Main Event had their peak in 2010, but I haven't followed anything poker related since 'black friday'
