Wednesday, 19 October 2011

ESPN has confirmed that it will be showing every hand of the final table of this year's World Series of Poker Main Event “as live” to its US audience on ESPN 2 and online at

Lon McEachern and David Tuchman will be sharing the commentary duties on the first day of action on Sunday 6 November when the November Nine field will be reduced to three. After a rest day on the Monday Norman Chad and Antonio Esfandiari will join McEachern on Tuesday 8 November when the World Champion will be crowned.

Perhaps most interesting for viewers is the news that any player who voluntarily enters the pot or some way affects the action will have his hole cards shown at the end of the hand.

"There are moments when you realize you're turning an important corner," said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. "This coverage shifts the paradigm for poker's potential on television and will showcase our championship with unprecedented richness and scale."

All coverage will be on a 15-minute delay due to gaming regulations.
