The WPT Moves to Fox Sports Network[ return to main articles page ]
It was recently announced that the World Poker Tour will move to the Fox Sports Network next season; broadcasting 60-minute episodes in a prime time Sunday slot. In this week's interview, Mike Sexton talks about the WPT's move to the Fox Sports Network along with some of the more memorable hands at WPT final tables over the years. Mike also talks about the late, great Stu Ungar, and how he believes Stu would have fared in today's poker environment if he were still alive.
Our second guest is WPT Live Updates Hostess Amanda Leatherman, who goes by "blondechick20" here on the site. Amanda has made a name for herself in the poker world thanks to her casual interview style and her ability to bring out the best in the people she interviews. Amanda talks about her responsibilities with the WPT for its upcoming season, this year's WPT Champion Michael "SirWatts" Watson, and even turns down a marriage proposal on the show.

RGHall 2013-05-19 20:15:36 @eforster22 It's a good idea.
SquidPoker 2013-05-19 20:05:37 @Isaac_Downes @RunItOnce Winnin 156k loosens up anyones ranges.
GriffinBenger 2013-05-19 19:32:57 Lost a pretty big pot in the late $100r @PokerStars in tournament "$109 R NL Hold'em, $40K Gtd" http://t.co/cEXXAdt8xk #BOOMPlayer
Jymaster11 2013-05-19 19:12:02 It usually isn't a good sign when you're done with all of your tournies at 6pm on a Sunday
RGHall 2013-05-19 19:01:40 RT @rcdaut: Is it hot in here or am i just really tilted?
