Some poker fans are under the mistaken impression that they will have wait till November to watch the world’s biggest poker extravaganza – the WSOP. The truth is that they will only have to wait till November to watch the final table of the Main Event play out. That’s because ESPN will be showing taped coverage of several other events throughout the course of the summer in a lead-up to the Main Event.
Tonight, the very first event of the World Series of Poker in the $10,000 World Championship Pot Limit Hold’em event will be shown. The final table featured star players like Phil Laak, Nenad Medic, Kathy Liebert, Mike Sexton, Patrick Antonius, and Andy Bloch.
The next event to air on ESPN will be the second one in a $1,500 No Limit Hold’em tournament and it can be viewed on July 29th. In fact, for the next 17 weeks ESPN will be showing WSOP events on Tuesdays.
Events #3 and #4 will be shown on August 5th while Event #5 is going to be aired on August 12th. Everyone will certainly want to tune in on the 19th of August as the star-studded H.O.R.S.E. championship that Scotty Nguyen won will be shown.
