Set your TiVo, new WSOP on ESPN starts Tues July 28th!
Harrah’s and ESPN have announced the broadcast schedule for the 2009 World Series of Poker.
Beginning July 28, ESPN will show two episodes every Tuesday night at 8:00 p.m., EST. The first event to be shown will be the Special 40th Anniversary No-Limit Holdem Event with a $40,000 buy-in. The other two special events selected for broadcast will be the WSOP
Champions Invitational (Aug. 4) and the Ante Up For Africa Celebrity-Charity Event (Aug. 11).
ESPN’s coverage of the $10,000 buy-in No-Limit Holdem World Championship will start Aug. 18 and conclude with a two-hour special episode Nov. 10 at 9:00 p.m., EST, featuring the final table, now known as the “November Nine.”
These changes mean that ESPN will no longer show the other no-limit holdem tournaments with lower buy-in amounts, nor will they broadcast coverage of other games, such as Omaha, Seven-Card Stud or H.O.R.S.E.
