CPC on PPV, an audience of 3?

by , Jan 17, 2009 | 3:54 pm

The Continental Poker Championship has scheduled their first PPV event (with Pokerati’s own Tom Schneider on commentary) at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York on Monday. Their first tournament, also at Turning Stone, drew 117 for a $2,000 buyin event back in July. Organizers were surely expecting similar numbers for their $1,500 3-day tournament, which started Saturday. Unfortunately, it looks like those final table participants may be waiting around for a while. According to a poster on 2+2 (post #666), they drew about 64. At 4:30 ET today, a player was eliminated in 30th. No word of if the final table is still to take place on Monday, but watch this space for any further updates if they become available.

Update: Play ended for the day around 8pm ET with 17 players left.

The final table starts at about noon ET today, Pokerpages will be providing live updates here.

    666 … the devil is back, and he wants us to know it.

    Is this the first CPC ever, or just the first on PPV?

    First PPV, the first tournament was supposed to air here in the Syracuse area first in October, now scheduled for later this month.

    OK, so it still can be a good final table, I suppose. But we’ll have to see how the PPV works. I can imagine maybe paying a dollar for it on iTunes. (No offense, Tom, I’m sure your coverage is worth at least $2.)

    It’s $14.95 and you get to see the hole cards. The other guy who runs the CPC and is the lead announcer on the broadcast, said this would be the 3rd major broadcast poker tournament series (after the WPT and WSOP). I think the Heartland Poker Tour would like a word with him.
