    Justin Bonomo is a famous guy! I don't remember his online name, but I have heard him mentioned many times on the 2+2 Pokercast

    Understand you're proud, and congrats to your son, but please, use spoiler tags for results.

    ZeeJustin. I have a 2+2 account, but have never listened to their pokercasts. I guess I should. Let me know if you can think of any episodes.

    Sorry. If this was the Main Event I surely wouldn't have. Do you really care or was this just a general warning for etiquette on the forums? (Like you planned to watch this, but now you won't because you know the outcome.)

    Both I care and it was meant to be a gentle reminder. :) I don't know if I'll still watch it, but I do know from past experience that knowing results lessens my enjoyment.

    Thank you. I enjoy watching the heads up matches. They tend to move much quicker as they tend not to take forever to make every decision.

    WOW.. that's even LESS non-main-event coverage than last year.

    I am not sure how many they did last year. I think it may be the same. Last year I think they started with a non main event tournament. This year the first two weeks are non main event coverage. However, this year they are back to airing the final table in November so there is an extra week at the end. (I think)

    If you're only counting the ESPN/ESPN2 coverage, probably true. If you include the 30-minute delay streaming via WatchESPN, I think it is more.

    He specifically said "non-main event coverage". Even there, the only thing missing is the second part of the "live" coverage of the Big One For One Drop final table.

    WSOP airings on ESPN are showing up now in the Program Guide (starting July 23rd), so if you need to set up recordings, data guide info is now available!

    I just found this thread ( what is Wsop??), so let me also send congratulations to waynomo and his son. Waynomo were you your sons first poker teacher?

    No, I wasn't his first teacher. He started out by teaching himself by reading books and posting on 2+2. He also built a stable of highly talented friends that he could discuss poker with.

    He worked very hard at it. I don't think people give poker players enough credit. While of course there must be some natural talent, they all work really hard at staying on top of the game.

    Yup.. I know at least my Tivo HD already had them scheduled... (I have a generic 'poker' new only wishlist on that one..) I cancelled those recordings, will check to see if my P4 has them scheduled.

    I've got to make more of a concerted effort now to clear about 24 hours of space on my DVR before the Main Event final table broadcast so I can get it from start to finish this year. Even padding and recording several of the shows that were scheduled to air after that coverage last year, I managed to miss the finish and had to watch on their more edited show they aired afterwards. :(

    Last year was ridiculous. I can't believe when I woke up the next morning it was still on. My recording had stopped, maybe 40 minutes earlier so with the buffer I caught all but a few minutes. When I set it the night before I thought I was being ridiculously careful.
