A while ago I had a thought that maybe with all the exposure poker had gotten over last decade or so, a lot of the professional's styles and strategies have been picked up by a lot of players. So I wondered, do the pros play differently on tv to try and infuence the style many poker players will play. In other words, do they intentionally play more mediocre starting hands, trying to influence the general public, and make the tables a little easier overall. Just a thought, seems like sometimes they play hands on tv that they would tell you in a book that you shouldnt. I've seen Helmuth call players "idiots" in the main event for playing hands I've seen him play on tv poker shows.

I dont think so. Remember you also have to take in the circumstances of the hand and what it is they are playing and who they are playing. Players will play differently also due to the structure of the event and such.
