ESPN Unveils 2013 WSOP TV Schedule

For the third straight year ESPN has decided to show the Main Event final table of the 2013 World Series of Poker on a live stream on November 4th and November 5th. The live stream (with the coverage on a slight delay) will cap off 25 hours of WSOP coverage starting on July 23rd with two consecutive hour-long episodes of the Main Event of the WSOP APAC Main Event. The following week ESPN’s coverage will continue with the WSOPC National Championship, and on August 6th the WSOP Main Event will take over.

For the 11th straight year the now-familiar voices of Norman Chad and Lon McEachern will be handling the commentary duties, with the duo likely getting some support for the live stream in the form of Antonio Esfandiari and/or Olivier Busquet.

In the press release detailing the TV schedule, Doug White, ESPN senior director of programming and acquisitions, stated, “We’re looking forward to showcasing the World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific Main Event to our viewers for the first time ever. WSOP events are always filled with drama and the season leading up to the greatest night of poker—the Final Table in November—will definitely be must-watch television for poker fans.”

This year ESPN will start their WSOP Main Event coverage on Day 3 of the tournament, with four one-hour episodes dedicated to each day: Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6, and Day 7. These episodes will lead-up to the Main Event final table on November 4th where ESPN2 will stream it live, calling it a night when just three players remain. Those three players will then return on November 5th to crown a champion, with ESPN once again taking over the coverage and choosing to go with the live stream format.

The live stream format has been a huge hit within the poker community, but has drawn some criticism from average viewers who find the slow-pace of an unedited poker tournament difficult to watch. Still with millions of dollars on the line the Live Stream does offer casual viewers a better insight into what goes on at the poker tables and the dynamics that often get lost during the editing process.
