Wsop November 9 Coverage


Recommended Posts

http://www.wsop.com/news/2011/Oct/3574/WSO...TELEVISION.htmlLAS VEGAS/BRISTOL (October 18, 2011) – To generate what could very well be the largest televised poker audience ever, the dates of play for the 2011 World Series of Poker Main Event finale have been moved back one day each, in order for the event to be shown in near real time – with every single hand – in its entirety for the very first time in its 42-year history.“There are moments when you realize you’re turning an important corner,“ said WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart. “This coverage shifts the paradigm for poker’s potential on television and will showcase our championship with unprecedented richness and scale.” The final nine players, also known as poker’s “November Nine,” are competing for a whopping prize pool totaling $28,269,365. This year’s victor becomes poker’s world champion. He will win $8,711,956. The championship tournament started on July 7th with 6,865 players who came to Las Vegas from nearly 100 different countries to participate. Each contestant posted an entry fee totaling $10,000, creating a mammoth $64,531,000 prize pool – the third largest ever. Only nine players remain – and those players are set to take a seat on poker’s biggest stage on November 6th for the initial playing session.The November Nine return to Las Vegas and the Rio to begin play on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 6 at 11:30 AM (Las Vegas time). Play will continue until just three players remain. Play will then take a one-day recess.ESPN2 will televise every single hand of final table action from 9 players to 3 players-- with player hole cards being shown, on a 15-minute delay. (ESPN2 and ESPN3 begins at 3:30 PM ET)The final act of poker’s greatest drama will play out when action resumes with the final three players on TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 8 at 5:30 pm (Las Vegas time) and will continue until the new 2011 World Poker Champion is crowned.Poker’s flagship network ESPN will carry Tuesday’s three-handed play in its entirety, in the same format as Sunday’s action -- with player hole cards being shown, on a 15-minute delay. Coverage on ESPN and ESPN3 will begin at 9 PM ET.“We had great success with our live WSOP Main Event shows this summer and this kind of unprecedented coverage of the Final Table will allow fans to experience the culmination of the biggest event in poker,” said Doug White, ESPN’s senior director of programming and acquisitions.This marks a historic milestone for poker. After ground-breaking coverage of the championship event over the summer when several days of the Main Event included a telecast of two feature tables (on a 30-minute delay) for the first time; this finale marks the first time the entire final table of the world’s most prestigious gaming event will be shown to viewers around the globe with only a 15 minute delay from play in the actual event itself.No longer will ESPN post-produce the coverage for quick turnaround. Instead ESPN is committing to coverage across ESPN and ESPN2 to document every flop, turn and river card dealt at the finale. Based on previous final tables, this is expected to be up to 18 hours of coverage. Poker fans in the United States will be able to view the action on the ESPN family of networks (including ESPN3 for both days coverage), while viewers outside the United States will be able to watch the stream on WSOP.com or ESPN International networks with planned coverage.As was done during the summer, hole cards will not be revealed to viewers until the hand has been completed. This directive ensures zero impact on players during a live hand. Viewers may see any cards that determine the final winning or losing hand in some manner after the hand is completed – which takes place on 15-minute delay.Consistent with the WSOP’s philosophy since buying poker’s most prestigious series in 2004, this marks yet another bold and innovative new step in the evolution of the game. The new changes should continue to help demystify and better introduce the game’s incredible drama and pervasive skill-element to an even broader viewing audience. Much like the introduction of hole card cameras to televised poker a decade ago, the ability to show an event in near real time will help the viewing public better appreciate and understand the nuances and dynamics of play during a lengthy poker tournament and final table session, as opposed to the edited, post-produced one-to-two-hour telecast which has become the staple of WSOP coverage in recent years.In another poker first, legal wagering on the event will now be offered in Nevada sports books, including Caesars Entertainment, Las Vegas-based properties.

Would be interesting to know who is helping each of the players by watching the hole cards on the broadcast and passing on information to somebody on the rail who can then advise the player.

Shaun Deeb helping Lamb by the sounds of things.A lot of Ireland's top players are over railing O'Dea so I'd imagine one or more of them are providing support for him.

This is the only reason why I don't like the broadcast. Getting reads on players based on hands seen on TV in a tournament that is still going on should be against some gaming commission rule. I think this is great television, but I don't see how they got this passed with the gaming police.

Great thread, sorry I'm getting into it so late. Was putting in some serious Sunday grinding since I have a prop bet going on to play 300 MTTs this month which on freaking Merge takes some serious work and I hate losing prop bets. That said, I missed a ton of the hands today, does anyone know if they are re-airing today's broadcast anywhere?
