    Excellent video. In my experience, the more people learn about the specifics, the more they come around to the idea. I think a lot of it has to do with early rumors and false assumptions.
    No, the final nine players won’t be forced into a reality TV scenario. Yes, all nine will be paid ninth place money (the minimum amount they are guaranteed) as soon as the tenth-place finisher busts. And no, Harrah’s won’t be keeping the interest on the remaining prizepool.
    As the video points out, there are still legitimate concerns, like potential collusion and a significant change from tradition. But we won’t know for certain how everything plays out until we try it. That’s why it’s called an experiment.
