2019 WSOP Broadcast Schedule Announced

Poker News Daily - Wed, 2019-02-13 21:48

The 2019 World Series of Poker is still about three and a half months away, but Caesars is giving us the opportunity to set our DVRs early, as the broadcast schedule for the 50th anniversary WSOP has been released.

Like last year, ESPN and Poker Central will be teaming up on the coverage. ESPN will air at least 40 hours of live poker and another 90 hours of “originally produced episodes.” Think of the latter like ESPN’s episodes of old, the edited, non-live shows that feature player background pieces, interviews, and the like.

Poker Central, as usual, will stream its coverage via the subscription PokerGO app and website. It will broadcast many of the bracelet events in the leadup to the Main Event. Right now, just the live broadcast schedule for ESPN has been announced, with PokerGO’s schedule to come.

As can be seen on the schedule that follows at the end of this article, ESPN2 will have the opening three flights of the 2019 WSOP Main Event beginning during the evening (Eastern Time), starting at 8:00pm to 9:00pm, depending on the day. This would imply that Poker Central will have the afternoon portion of the coverage. The same general timing seems to hold true for much of the rest of the Main Event.

The final table will be all ESPN, as it has been for years.

“For the third straight year, Poker Central and ESPN will deliver expansive coverage of the WSOP Main Event to a continually growing audience across multiple platforms,” said JR McCabe, chief digital officer of Poker Central, in a press release. “We again look forward to bringing poker’s pinnacle event to fans around the world.”

“Significant video coverage is one of our key cornerstones,” added Ty Stewart, executive director of the World Series of Poker. “We’re grateful to Poker Central and ESPN for continuing to expand the reach of WSOP to today’s platforms and fueling the interest of tomorrow’s champions.”

2019 World Series of Poker ESPN Broadcast Schedule Date Time Network Event 3-Jul 8:30 PM – 2:00 AM ET ESPN2 WSOP Main Event Day 1A 4-Jul 9:00 PM – 11:00 PM ET ESPN2 WSOP Main Event Day 1B 5-Jul 8:00 PM – 12:30 AM ET ESPN2 WSOP Main Event Day 1C 6-Jul 6:00 PM – 10:30 PM ET ESPN2 WSOP Main Event Day 2AB 7-Jul 2:30 PM – 6:00 PM ET ESPN WSOP Main Event Day 2C 8-Jul 10:00 PM – 2:00 AM ET ESPN2 WSOP Main Event Day 3 9-Jul 7:00 PM – 11:00 PM ET ESPN WSOP Main Event Day 4 10-Jul 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM ET ESPN WSOP Main Event Day 5 11-Jul 12:30 AM – 2:00 AM ET ESPN2 WSOP Main Event Day 6 12-Jul 9:00 PM – 11:00 PM ET ESPN WSOP Main Event Day 7 12-Jul 11:00 PM – 2:00 AM ET ESPN2 WSOP Main Event Day 7   (Play to Final Table) 14-Jul 10:00 PM – TBD ET ESPN2 WSOP Main Event Day 8 (Nine to Six Players) 15-Jul 10:00 PM – TBD ET ESPN WSOP Main Event Day 9 (Six to Three Players) 16-Jul 9:00 PM – TBD ET ESPN WSOP Main Event Day 10 (Three Players to Winner)

WPTDeepStacks Teams with 888poker, Adds Two More Stops

Poker News Daily - Wed, 2019-02-13 05:17

On Monday, the World Poker Tour (WPT) announced a new partnership with 888poker which will result in two more events being added to this year’s WPTDeepStacks Europe schedule. The three year deal will see 888poker become a co-sponsor of events and run online qualifiers for them on its site.

Malta will be the first new stop – called 888poker WPTDeepStacks Malta – and will be held at Casino Malta from April 8th through April 14th. The Main Event, running April 11th through the end of the festival, will cost €1,000 and have a €200,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Later in the year will be 888poker WPTDeepStacks Portugal, hosted by Casino Solverde Vilamoura September 2nd through September 8th. The Main Event, September 5th through September 8th, will be a little bit more expensive than Malta’s, a €1,200 buy-in with a €250,000 guaranteed prize pool.

Though both new stops will be in this calendar year, 888poker WPTDeepStacks Malta will be held during the current season, while 888poker WPTDeepStacks Portugal, by nature of it not being until September, is on next season’s schedule.

“WPTDeepStacks Europe looks forward to partnering with 888poker for our events over the next three years starting with WPTDeepStacks Malta and WPTDeepStacks Portugal,” said Hermance Blum, WPT VP Europe, in a press release. “WPT has no doubt the addition of 888poker will greatly increase visibility at WPTDeepStacks locations across Europe.”

Angelica Hael, VP of Global Tour Management at the World Poker Tour, added, “888poker is one of the global leaders in creating positive experiences for players, and the World Poker Tour is excited to work with the great team at 888poker at our upcoming events.”

Still Four-Figures, But a Bit More Affordable

WPTDeepStacks is the World Poker Tour’s “mid-major” tour, of sorts. There are many more WPTDeepStacks tour stops than there are stops on the Main Tour and each event comes in at a lower price point. The Main Events tend to be in the $1,000/€1,000 to $1,500/€1,500 buy-in range. While several of the WPTDeepStacks venues are the same as on the main tour – places like Thunder Valley Casino Resort, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Casino Sochi, most are at other venues that are not as well known to poker players and in cities that are often ignored on major poker tours. It is kind of like the World Series of Poker Circuit of the WPT.

WPTDeepStacks Brussels, hosted by Grand Casino Brussels Viage, just completed this weekend. The next stop is a familiar one, bestbet Jacksonville with WPTDeepStacks Jacksonville.

Guy Cohen, 888 Holdings’ Senior Vice President of B2C, said in the press release, “We are very excited to extend our relationship with the World Poker Tour by sponsoring an additional two events in Malta and Portugal. At 888poker, we strive to create a product that offers an engaging experience to all poker players and we are looking forward to launching our poker product in Portugal soon.”
