PokerListings Loads Up On-Demand Coverage for WSOP Main Event
It’s the biggest poker tournament in the world and PokerListings is giving readers the chance to influence our coverage of the famous event.
That’s right, for the third straight year PokerListings will essentially be taking requests as part of our 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event live coverage.
Do you want an orbit with Daniel Negreanu? We can do that. Are you curious what kind of watch Antonio Esfandiari is wearing? Ask and you shall receive. How about an update on what the Poker Kitchen is serving today? If we must.
You can get at us in the comments section of this article or the live update page itself or over on Twitter.
Go here for all the off-the-wall WSOP coverage you could ever hope for:
Over a Decade of WSOP Reporting Experience
PokerListings has been coming to Vegas for the WSOP since 2005 and yet somehow the $10,000 Main Event always finds a way to surprise.
This year we’ll once again be embedded in the Rio with enough DSLR’s, video cameras and laptops to fill a Kia.
The idea behind our On-Demand coverage is to give a slightly different look at the WSOP Main Event that you wouldn’t necessarily find on the official live updates, which can be found on WSOP.com.
Some of our more popular On-Demand pieces have included an in-depth look at Phil Ivey’s footwear, a high-school coach taking a shot at the big dance, covering the Main Event using only illustrations.
The live updates will also be chock full of multi-media content with photos, Twitter, Instagram and video embedded into the coverage.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never played a hand of poker or if you cleared SuperNova Elite numerous times, we’re here to do your bidding so feel free to hit us up with clever ideas and names of family members you need an update on.
Storylines to Watch During Main Event
Of course there will be plenty of compelling storylines during the Main Event outside of our On Demand coverage.
The first and foremost for most people is likely whether Phil Ivey will finally descend on the Rio for the WSOP.
It wasn’t that long ago that Ivey was a fixture of the WSOP and seemed to be making a final table every week when he had a ton of action on bracelet bets.
It’s anyone’s guess where Ivey is now but playing high-stakes cash somewhere in Asia seems like the safe bet.
Will he touch down in Las Vegas for the Main Event? Wait and see.
The other huge story is Jason Mercier’s last-ditch effort to win a third WSOP bracelet this summer and cash in on some serious cash in prop bets.
Winning the Main Event is of course very unlikely but considering the summer that Mercier has had it doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility.
Some of the other storylines to keep on eye on will be whether Daniel Negreanu/Phil Hellmuth can manage a deep run or maybe a female player will finally claim a seat at the final table.
It all begins at 11 a.m. PT tomorrow. We’ll be there every minute until the final final table is reached on July 18.
