to stream all 60 final tables to stream all 60 final tables

Online railbirds wanting to follow the action at this year's World Series of Poker will be able to do so after organisers announced that it will be streaming 60 final tables from this year's event.

Two streams are set to be made available with the primary one featuring six cameras with commentary and analysis. American David Tuchman, a familiar face to poker (and NFL) fans in the UK will be the primary commentator with a series of yet to be announced analysts set to join him.

“It doesn't get bigger or better than the World Series of Poker,” said Tuchman. “I am excited and humbled to be working with the WSOP to bring the live stream to a hungry and growing audience.”

When two or more final tables are taking place on the same day, will employ a two-camera, fly-on-the-wall web stream for the additional coverage, in the same manner used at the 2011 WSOP. These streams will feature audio from the tournament director’s microphone. Most non-flop games will be featured in these webcasts.

The streams will be shown on a five minute delay, and as per gaming regulations, hole cards will not be shown.

This year's WSOP gets under way from the Rio in Las Vegas on Monday 28th May with the Casino Employees Event. The WSOP proper starts two days later on Wednesday 30th May.
