More Unedited Coverage
If you have watched the World Series of Poker in the past you have gotten a watered down, edited version. This year will be different as ESPN has said they will be providing unedited coverage on a 30-minute delay from July 14th through the 19th. You will be able to watch all of the action and not just the marquee hands that ESPN picks and chooses. ESPN will still pick the two feature tables but you can watch all of the hole cards for players still in the hand. ESPN has said they will shift the coverage from the two feature tables about every half hour and will show all of the big hands at both tables. ESPN will be using Lon McEachern and David Tuchman for the play by play and a number of other announcers including Norman Chad and other pro poker players for the analysis.
