WSOP to Stream 60 Bracelet Final Tables Online
The World Series of Poker announced plans today to stream 60 final tables online from the 2012 WSOP in Las Vegas.
Up to three final tables a day will be streamed on a five-minute delay with commentary from David Tuchman and a rotating group of player analysts.
Hole cards will not be shown on any of the live streams.
“It doesn't get bigger or better than the World Series of Poker,” said David Tuchman.
“I am excited and humbled to be working with the WSOP to bring the live stream to a hungry and growing audience,” Tuchman added.
The first final table on the streaming schedule is Event 1, the Casino Employees tournament, on May 28th with coverage continuing daily until July 8.
Two Distinct Live Streams
Two distinct streams will be available, with a primary setup consisting of six different cameras and announcer/analyst commentary.
The primary stream will focus mainly on flop games and will take place on the main stage inside the Amazon Ballroom at the Rio Hotel and Casino.
When two or more final tables are happening on the same day the secondary setup will be used, which uses the same two-camera “fly-on-the-wall” style that we saw at the 2011 WSOP.
The secondary stream will feature audio directly from the tournament director’s microphone.
Most non-flop games will be streamed on the secondary final table.
Jay “WhoJedi” Newnum will be serving as WSOP Video Coordinator. Players who are interested in providing analysis and color commentary for the live stream are urged to contact Newnum via twitter @WhoJedi.
Veetle.com will return as the official WSOP streaming provider with the videos archived and made available for viewing after the fact.
