The World Series of Poker returns in just a few weeks and PokerGO is once again streaming much of the action live. The company officially released its streaming schedule last week and players will find 26 bracelet events.
The schedule includes live streaming of the $10,000 Main Event from start to finish. That begins on Day 1A on Nov. 4 and carries through until a winner is crowned on Nov. 17.
Highlights from the PokerGO schedule
The entire series features 88 events and runs from Sept. 30 to Nov. 23 at the Rio in Las Vegas. The streaming service offers fans plenty of action for those who can’t make it to Sin City.
PokerGO’s live streaming began Oct. 4 with the $25,000 High Roller. Coverage runs through Nov. 23 with the conclusion of the $100,000 High Roller. Poker fans can expect 36 days of live broadcasts including other comprehensive coverage.
“The WSOP represents the most exciting time on the poker calendar,” PokerGO President Mori Eskandani said, “and we look forward to bringing the thrill of winning gold bracelets to millions of poker fans around the world.”
A few other highlights on the schedule include the $25,000 Heads-Up Championship and the $50,000 High Roller.
Fans can also check out coverage of the series on CBS Sports Network. The WSOP announced a new deal with the network in April that includes extensive streaming on the network.
Returning to the WSOP action
This becomes the first fully live WSOP since 2019. The series was moved to the fall this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. PokerGO has shown other events over the last year, but the network’s signature festival now returns to the streaming lineup.
Eskandani spoke with USPoker about the series and the PokerGO staff’s excitement about being back in action at the Rio.
“Simply put, it feels like we are whole again,” he said. “The poker industry depends on the WSOP to stay healthy and PokerGO is ready to bring the events to the global poker community.”
“All PokerGO is doing is evolving with the poker community,” Eskandani said of the diverse schedule. “There are a couple of dozen forms of poker that have gained popularity with poker players and we feel obligated to showcase them. The main concentration, though, will remain No Limit Hold’em, as it is by far the most popular form of poker.”
The WSOP announced last week that vaccinated players will be allowed to play without a mask. However, the series will require all players to be vaccinated to play. No masks should make for better viewing and Eskandani is pleased with the move.
“Unmasking the players was welcome news to our team,” he said. “Seeing and hearing the players clearly makes for a much better production.”
