Or altogether just taken apart
We're reeling through an endless fall

Really enjoying this game tonight, and last night was good, too.

Flushy & Jesse are a great commentary team, and MVG is a funny guy.

Yes, quite enjoyable, & Flushy is pretty decent as a commentator. Slightly annoying is that the table is "miced-up" so you can hear the banter - great stuff - but Jesse & Flushy talk OVER the table talk, so you end up half hearing two convos. One or the other would be fine, but not both. 

I preferred the PLO on Saturday - so unusual to see PLO screened "live".

The amounts on the table during the PLO were a bit obscene, with €6,400 straddles commonplace, & a few occasions where players played "blind". Something about that made me uncomfortable, that folks can splash such some around with such abandon, but I guess that's how high stakes poker works. 

Good stuff though, & it makes decent pre-bed late-night viewing.

I saw a bit of the PLO, and saw Tony G stick 80 grand in pre with QJT8 Cheesy

Between Vlogs, and these cash games, they've got me excited for summer, and I might even give some cash away at the Nugget 1/2 in June!

Really agree with TiKay, sometimes wish the commenters would stay quiet so we can enjoy the table banter. It more interesting/entertaining listening to MVG and Rob joking about fixing dart games than Flushy and Co talking over. In fact it's frustrating!

The commentary is excellent, very enjoyable, but so is the table banter. The convo you mention between Rob and MVG was fascinating, and very funny, but it was really hard to hear as Jesse and James were talking above it.

I can only imagine they don't have a Producer or Director, as it makes no sense to have two audio feeds at the same time, it's almost impossible to listen to two convos about different things, both very interesting, at the same time.

I'd love to listen to both, it's all good, but it ends up as 4 people talking and two convos, nobody can listen to both at the same time, we end up hearing neither properly.

That apart, it's good TV, and it's free to view, so deffo not complaining. Much prefer it to the more slick and Corporate 'Stars stuff.

watching this now... are Jesse May and Simon Trumper honestly suggesting that MVG would be a "huge" favourite at darts vs someone if he was blindfolded?

I'm in for betting 5/4 on the non blindfolded guy!

The T20 scoring wouldn't be such an issue as adjusting for the doubles.  Surely it would be close on impossible to play darts blind folded no matter how good you are?

the key is whether someone is allowed to guide MVG to the oche whenever it is his throw. If he is allowed a 'helper' then I like his chances a bit more!

haha yeh, if he's blind folded 100% of the time with no assistance he's odds on to trip over at some point, just figuring out where the board is would be remarkable Tongue
