Poker Tournaments in Jan 2006

I was looking at what was coming up for the new year, and MAN are there a lot of tournaments scheduled for January! How the hell do these promoters expect the pros to make all of these events, with the timing that is laid out? Here are the events and the dates, so you can see what I mean!

2006 Pokerstar's Caribbean Poker Adventure - WPT
Dates: January 4th, 2006 to January 10th, 2006

2006 Jack Binion WSOP Tournament Circuit-Grand Tunica
Dates: January 5th, 2006 to January 26th, 2006

2006 Aussie Millions
Dates: January 6th, 2006 to January 19th, 2006

2006 Gold Strike World Poker Open - WPT
Dates: January 9th, 2006 to January 23rd, 2006

2006 L.A. Poker Classic
Dates: January 19th, 2006 to February 23rd, 2006

2006 Borgota Winter Poker Open - WPT
Dates: January 20th, 2006 to February 1st, 2006

My Guess is that a number of pros will be playing in both the Jack ABinion and the Gold Strike, since they are both in Tunica, and they over lap.

You would think that the WSOP and the WPT would do SOME co-ordinating of events so that there would be less overlap. This would be better for BOTH tours, as MORE of the top pros would be able to appear at both. This would make for better TV, and hence, more of an audience!
