    Default Ratings for WSOP final table up 50 percent

    Apparently the WSOP's strategy of delaying the final table for nearly four months and broadcasting the final table "plausibly live" about 12 hours after the tournament was decided worked. The ratings for the final table broadcast were up by 50 percent, with nearly 1.9 million households tuning in.
