ESPN to Broadcast Three 2010 WSOP Tournaments - Poker News.
For those of us not jumping on a plane to Las Vegas to celebrate the 50th World Series of Poker (WSOP), the televised coverage of the event will have to do. Luckily Poker Central’s PokerGO along with ESPN have released their broadcast schedules announcing blanket coverage of the Main Event between July 3 and July 16, 2019. This means that the Main Event and Final Table will be broadcast in.
As I previously announced, the WSOP Main Event final table starts tomorrow. Thankfully, we don't have to wait for the TV show to see the action itself, starting from this year, ESPN will broadcast the event live (with a 5 minute delay) on their website. The live stream can be found at ESPN3.com, and will be live from Nov 6 Saturday at 3 p.m. ET.The coverage will continue with the heads-up play.
It has been confirmed that ESPN will broadcast all the action of the Main Event, and the televised schedule for the 13-day extended coverage has been released. However, ESPN will air only three broadcasts for WSOP this year as opposed to the six broadcasts last year.
In this year's partnership between ESPN and Poker Central, ESPN will telecast at least 40 hours of live WSOP coverage, plus an additional 130 hours of originally produced episodes. ESPN comprehensive broadcast of the WSOP will continue through 2020.
The 2019 World Series of Poker will run from May 28 through July 26, 2019 and so far is featuring 80 live events, including the WSOP Main Event and a “Mini Main Event” for the first time in history. Online bracelet events have yet to be announced, likely due to the new opinion released by the DOJ regarding the Wire Act. A final schedule for both bracelet events and final table broadcasts.
As part of the ongoing partnership between the brands and following their successful broadcast of last year’s 50th World Series of Poker event, ESPN and Poker Central will telecast at least 40 hours of live WSOP coverage with an additional 90 hours of originally produced episodes.
