Says the press bulletin:
While we continue to negotiate the broadcast of the second season, we have decided to delay these tournaments for the benefit of players who need to make long-term travel arrangements as well as the league itself. We expect to resume filming in 2007. As the poker industry expands, and the television marketplace evolves, we must adapt our business and brand strategies to reflect current market conditions.
With the negative press
The PPT began airing in July of 2006, providing the kind of in-depth poker action and coverage that true fans of the game enjoy. Fields were limited to the game’s elite players and to other sponsor exemptions. Two of the games top and most respected names, John Juanda and Erick Lindgren, won the first two aired tournaments.
We will keep you posted on any future PPT developments.
