ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s almost that time of year again, when the old World Series of Poker footage gets a break from regular rotation while the new footage gets a prime spot on ESPN. Poker fans have just a few more days before the footage of the 2009 WSOP begins to air on the sports channel.
The first WSOP event to air on ESPN will be the $40K event which was created to celebrate the forty years the WSOP has been in operation. Beginning on the 28th the $40k event will air for two hours on Tuesday and then two more two hour episodes will follow the $40k event, the Champions Invitational and the Ante Up For Africa charity tournament.
The Champions Invitational will air on August 4th while the Ante Up For Africa event will air on August 11th. The main attraction, the Main Event, will begin airing on August 18th and the Main Event will be shown every Tuesday from then on from 8 and 10pm ET. Each time it airs, fans will be able to watch two hours of footage. The Main Event footage will include each of the four Day 1 flights and two of the Day 2Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s.
The Main Event coverage will continue until Day 8 is shown on November 3rd. then on November 10th the final table will be aired with a one hour preview show which will introduce viewers to the November Nine. The special will be followed by two hours of final table action. Viewers will be able to see the champion crowned just a few hours after the bracelet is awarded in Vegas, which is almost as good as being there!
