While watching the Galfond challenge I noticed it is quite often even for the commentators difficult to figure out what combination won a hand. Some other sites highlight the cards which made the winning combination like this:
I think that would make the gameplay a lot more pleasant.

Of course I know revenue and profit are not the same thing. I also don't consider the fact a company is making a profit as them scamming us. PS's whole strategy however is aimed against the players, they much rather spend millions hiring Neymar and Ronaldo than actually offer real deals. Also Blizzard is much more than just WOW but I can post some numbers I found online:
Blizzard revenue/profit: 1.51b/260m ~17% of their revenue is profit
PS revenue/profit: 411m/131m ~32% of their revenue is profit
And to be honest reality might be even worse as we don't see into the internal things of those two companies but especially the dishonest one (PS).
I can't play anyways, I am from one of those regulated countries. I have nothing against STP, I am only criticizing the amount of net rake which I consider to be too high. It's still a better deal than what PS does so if I could play I would.

You are so wrong I can't even begin to fathom why would anyone like your comment.
First of all, WOW didn't start with 12 million subs, second of all basically all MMO's cost around 10 bucks per month even the ones that have less than a million subs.
Also Pokerstars had 1.4 billion revenue in 2010, still think we are not talking comparable numbers here? Pokerstars in 2010 = WOW in 2010.
Also why would you even compare online numbers for PS to monthly subs to WOW!?!? How does that make sense? PS most likely had at least 5 million monthly players with that kind of a number online. Also what does that matter anyways? Blizzard had to run servers in like a dozen different locations with customer service in many different languages. Afaik pokesite logistics are way simpler.
One more thing, I googled some of the old numbers of players online (sure many were freerolling) and PS.com + PS.fr + PS.it amounted to around 450k online during their daily peak.
By the way even in 2017 PS made 1.3 billion in revenue.
That is how much they have been scamming us for...
