    Just FYI since you can't watch it through TiVo, but ESPN3 supposedly starts 2013 WSOP coverage tonight @10PM EDT with "2013 World Series of Poker: Casino Employees No-Limit Hold 'Em (Final Table)"

    I say supposedly because when I first looked was scheduled for 7PM, then briefly disappeared, then reappeared for 10.

    Oh. I get plenty of ESPN but a stream only channel. Are they killing World Series of Poker?

    No, these are just some of the preliminary events, and they are almost live (30-minute delay). It is an addition to their normal coverage. They did exactly the same thing last year, except fewer events. This year they are supposedly having final table coverage of at least 35 events.

    ESPN live streaming has been available for a while and is "... available at no additional cost to fans who receive ESPN as part of their TV subscription through participating TV providers."

    and

    "Access to live programming on the ESPN3 channel of WatchESPN.com is available at no additional cost to fans with subscriptions to participating high speed internet service providers. Click HERE to view a complete list of participating providers."

    OK, I think the live broadcasts are actually pretty boring (even at 1.5x with sound). Wait, was it LAST YEAR that was ~12 hours? I think I never actually even saw the finals, or maybe I saw one of the reruns of just the very end. I seem to remember never finding the edited version of the final table on ESPN.

    and I thought the employee event used to show up (at least in snippets) in the regular TV Shows.

    This year, the delay is 30 minutes so they will be allowed to show the hole cards during the hand. (I think the rule is, they will show the hole cards for anyone who does not immediately fold.) This is supposed to apply to the broadcast "live" coverage of the final table as well.

    Last night they had electric problems at the Rio so that was why they did not broadcast as scheduled.

    I know they increased the delay by 15 minutes so they could show more hole cards. I hope you're right that they show preflop hole cards also. Previously were they showing hole cards post flop, right? (I really don't remember.)

    Looks like you are right. Watching the coverage now. They have commentary, but can't hear any player talk.

    They just announced 2 varieties of coverage. One with 30 minute delay, hole cards, and commentary; and the other with 5 minute delay, no hole cards, and no commentary.

    Update:

    Looks like they are showing hole cards for anybody who has money invested in the pot with the exception of antes. They just showed hole cards for the small and big blind when the BB got a walk.

    Now it looks like you are calling me really stupid. :D

    I reported it also. Other than the total nonsense in the post the other clue is they only had 1 post.

    Oops, jeepers. :) No, the post before my post about spam makes perfect sense, is in correct English and on topic. ;)

    Thanks. Nice to be recognized for being somewhat coherent. :)

    Doesn't seem like there is much interest here for the WSOP. I never really paid attention here on TCF. I guess it heats up once they start televising the ME on ESPN. Most people think that is it. They don't really know what the WSOP is.

    I'd love to see more of it, but alas, I do not have access to ESPN3. I have an ARWL for "2013 World Series of Poker", though, so hopefully I'll catch whatever airs on the regular channels.

    Smart to setup a Wish List. I should do that. (I assume that is what you mean by "ARWL." Does "AR" mean always record?

    I believe that will be just the Main Event again this year that will air via regular ESPN.

    I thought most of the 30 or so final table broadcasts are available to anyone. Have you gone to watchespn.com or espn.go.com? They have a ton of programming available to anyone with an internet connection. (Or so I am under the impression.) The next available poker broadcast is tomorrow evening.

    2013 World Series of Poker: Millionaire Maker Hold 'Em (Final Table)

    That is the final table of event 6.

    Of course you can always get updates throughout the series here:

    Auto-recording wishlist. So it ends up as a normal Season Pass Manager item.

    Weird, last night some of the 2012 episodes were showing up as premiering *that night*.

    According to the participating providers link in post #6, I meet none of those - DirecTV subscriber with CenturyLink internet service. I'll have to take a look at your suggestions to see if I have access.
