The 2013 World Series of Poker is just days away and is dropping a brand-new live coverage format to bring you all the action.

This is the ninth year in a row we've made the trip to Las Vegas and let's just say we've learned a thing or two about how to maneuver in Sin City.

This year we'll be covering a selection of the biggest and best WSOP bracelet events leading up to the $10,000 World Championship.

And during the Main Event we'll be shipping daily video interviews and updates straight from the floor of the Rio Hotel and Casino.

But we won't be doing it alone. We've brought in a crack team of poker media veterans including Alex Villegas, Marc Convey, Allen Rash and Dave Behr to help.

You can head straight to our WSOP 2013 Section to see it all in one place.

Follow the Chips for 12 Feature WSOP Bracelet Events

For this year's World Series of Poker we've handpicked a dozen tournaments that run the gamut from the $1k Millionaire Maker to the $111k One Drop High Roller.

We'll be pulling compelling stories out of the crowd for the entire WSOP.

“With over 60 bracelet events at the WSOP it can be tough for fans to keep track of everything that's going on,” said PokerListings Editor in Chief Matt Showell.

“That's why we're focusing in on the most compelling stories and characters to give you a richer WSOP experience that goes beyond bracelet winners and chip counts.”

To do it PokerListings will be using a new coverage format we call “Follow the Chips”.

Instead of a mash-up of individual hands from across the tournament floor we'll be zooming in and covering one compelling personality at a time. And when they lose a pot to another compelling personality, we follow the chips.

By the time the tournament's over we'll have connected that first stack all the way to the winner, and told a long line of great stories along the way.

Here's a look at the selection of feature events we'll be covering:

  • June 1, 2013: Event 6 - $1,000 Millionaire Maker
  • June 4, 2013: Event 11 - $2,500 Six-Max No-Limit Hold'em
  • June 7, 2013: Event 16 - $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em
  • June 11, 2013: Event 21 - $3,000 Six-Max No-Limit Hold'em
  • June 14, 2013: Event 27 - $3,000 Mixed Max

Daily Video Interviews from 2013 Main Event

During the 2013 Main Event the PokerListings video crew will touch down in Las Vegas to catch the WSOP's most interesting people on camera.

Expect interviews with all the biggest poker pros as well as sports stars, celebrities and successful people from all walks of life.
