On the heels of its successful MMA Live show (which is not to be confused with the even more wildly popular MMA Fix TV), it looks like ESPN is finally taking the plunge into launching new poker programming, as they are rumored to launch an Internet-only weekly 30 minute poker show in the coming weeks.
While some may argue this was the greatest idea ever–in 2004–we’re glad to see ESPN support its massive investment into the WSOP with some relevant poker content. Consider it another step for poker into greater mainstream acceptance.
No word yet on who the host will be, but you know our vote. More thumbs below from Keeley Hazell’s newish Ralph Magazine photo shoot.
