Poker Central, the online streaming broadcast partner of the World Series of Poker, has announced their complete streaming schedule for the 2018 summer series.
Of the 78 bracelet events, a total of 16 final tables as well as wire-to-wire comprehensive coverage of the $10,000 Main Event and extensive viewing of the $1,000,000 Big One For One Drop will be able to be seen on the PokerGO platform.
Mixing It Up
“We’re eager to continue our live coverage of the WSOP on PokerGO for the second year running,” said Vice President of Content at Poker Central, Sam Simmons. “Our expanded coverage schedule including a wide array of poker variants will give our viewers even more opportunities to follow all the action of the world’s most prestigious tournament series.”
Answering the call from their vocal viewership, Poker Central has clearly put a focus on expanding the variety of games that will be broadcast. Popular events like the $50,000 Poker Players Championship, the $10,000 No Limit Hold’em Heads Up and just about every $10,000 Championship Event – no matter the variant – has made it onto the schedule.
Calling The Action
When it comes to commentary during the events, the heavy lifting will be done by longtime poker commentator and the voice of Poker After Dark, Ali Nejad. Nejad will be handling the play-by-play with guest play-by-play from ESPN’s own Lon McEachern.
Color commentary and strategic analysis will be handled by a rotating cast of players and personalities to be named on an event-by-event basis. One should also expect appearances by ESPN’s own color commentator, Norman Chad.
In addition to having McEachern and Chad contribute to the PokerGO commentary team, the partnership between ESPN and Poker Central looks to bring viewers unparalleled coverage of two of the biggest events of the summer.
“We’re looking forward to having Poker Central and ESPN tag team coverage for the WSOP again this year,” said the Executive Director of the World Series of Poker, Ty Stewart. “Fans can expect stellar storylines and wall-to-wall coverage throughout the event and during the ‘Big One for One Drop.”
ESPN had already announced their broadcasting schedule for the 2018 WSOP Main Event and One Drop, now the PokerGO streaming dates can help fans complete the picture of how to watch every second of the action.
As is customary, all of the events will be streamed on a 30-60 minutes delay with hole cards displayed.
If the content on both PokerGo and ESPN simply is not enough streaming poker, there will be additional World Series of Poker streaming coverage on a free-to-view partner site, the details of which will be announced before the start of the WSOP.
