Poker enthusiasts who won't be able to come down to Las Vegas for the 2018 World Series of Poker (WSOP) will be able to witness all of the action via PokerGO's expanded live streaming schedule for the duration of the tournament.
Continuing from the success of PokerGO's live streaming of the WSOP last year, Poker Central has announced that the subscription-based platform will cover more final table events at the 2018 WSOP, with at least 30 days of live poker coverage spanning from June 2 to July 17.
Compared to last year's coverage, fans will be seeing more final table action this year, especially a number of non-hold’em events.
The first final table to be streamed live via PokerGO will be the $3K No Limit Hold'em Shootout on June 2 at 1pm., followed by the $100K No Limit Hold'em High Roller on June 4 and the $10K Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better on June 5. The next 13 days will be filled with PLO, H.O.R.S.E., Seven Card Stud and Eight Game Mix final tables, before they start with the full coverage of the $10,000 Main Event on July 3.
In a statement, Sam Simmons, vice president of content at Poker Central, said
We’re eager to continue our live coverage of the WSOP on PokerGO for the second year running. 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.
Full Coverage Of 2018 WSOP Main Event
Coverage of the Main Event at PokerGO will cover the whole Main Event from July 3 to July 11, all streamed with a 30 to 60-minute delay to accommodate delayed start times. The final event, the Big One for One Drop, will also be covered from July 16 to 17.
The PokerGO streaming will go in-tandem with ESPN's television broadcast of the Main Event and Big One for One Drop, and will feature the commentaries of "Poker After Dark" commentator Ali Nejad and ESPN’s Lon McEachern. A number of guest commentators will appear throughout the broadcast, including ESPN color commentator Norman Chad.
