I recalled the Word Wars Documentary about the Scrabble tournament circuit.
It was heavily loaded up w production editing to make it viewable to the non-Scrabble audience. Our supercomputers are not yet powerful enough to do that type of Live/instant replay editing as seen on so many sports broadcasts.
Even when all that editing becomes possible, I would be curious which advertisers would back an A&A tournament broadcast.
Maybe a few from the the golf channel.
