In a chat this afternoon for ESPN Poker, FOWCP Andrew Feldman announced that ESPN would be live streaming select events from the 2010 WSOP. Here’s his quote from the chat:
ESPN3 will be bringing you five final table streamed live from the 2010 World Series of Poker. The events we’ll be streaming are: $25K six-handed on July 3, $2,500 no-limit hold ‘em on June 26, $1,500 on June 27, $1,500 on June 30, $3,000 triple chance on July 1.
While there are scant few details at the moment as to what this will entail, one of two things would have to happen for the live streaming to comply with Nevada Gaming Commission regulations. Either 1) they will not show hole cards or 2) it will have a delay, making it more “live” than live.
The subject of live streaming the Main Event final table still seems to be up in the air as Feldman was only able to confirm these preliminary events in the chat. When asked about the ME final table, he responded:
Actually, as of now, I have no idea about the answer to that question. I’m assuming that if we decide to air it live, we’ll make some sort of announcement late summer. The five that we’re airing are the preliminary events of the WSOP…sorry for the lack of info.
