The PokerListings reporting team will select the most interesting questions and do its best to find the answer. The team will also be producing video and conducting interviews with the biggest names in the poker world.
PokerListings.com will launch its new “On-Demand” live coverage at the $1 million Big One for One Drop and will continue through the $10,000 Main Event.
Using Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, PL's WSOP live coverage will become a discussion between readers and reporters.
“We're excited to be celebrating our 10th year at the World Series of Poker,” said PokerListings editor in chief Matt Showell.
“Our new On-Demand format will change live coverage from a one-way broadcast to an interactive dialogue between the audience and our live reporting team.”
Ever wondered what Phil Ivey's listening to on his iPod, or have a special question for Daniel Negreanu?
“We'll give our readers the chance to ask questions and make requests via social media and our hope is it will lead us to some interesting stories we might have otherwise missed,” said Showell.

Readers can still expect more traditional hand reports, chip leaders and overall tournament updates, but can look forward to a diverse offering of humor, analysis and color commentary as well.
“Making live coverage interactive is exciting not only because our reporting team will get tons of good leads, we'll also be able to embed the funniest and most interesting tweets, comments and photos from our readers right in the coverage,” explained Showell.
The entire back-and-forth will be captured in the Big One and Main Event live updates, as well as links to feature news articles and videos the PokerListings team will be producing from Las Vegas.
