2014 World Series of Poker Spoilers only for Episodes already aired on ESPN

My auto record for "2014 World Series of Poker" has picked up two episodes on ESPN Tuesday, July 15th at 9:00 ET/8:00 CT (two consecutive one-hour shows).

These are titled "National Championship, Part 1" and "National Championship, Part 2".

If you are a WSOP fan, the fun is about to begin.

Make sure you have room on your DVR(s) for BOTH World Series broadcasts that Tuesday night (baseball and poker)!

The MLB world series is in October. The All-Star Game is on July 15. Slight difference.

I just KNEW there was a definite down side to posting something like that at 3:00 in the morning! And the All-Star game is practically in my back yard! Point deducted for that fail.

The main event, event #65, starts later today with a guarantee of $10 million for first place.

I thought I read that they will be premiering the regular WSOP ME episodes on Sunday nights thus year.

The National Championship is the culmination of the WSOP circuit events IIRC. (That these will be on Tuesdays doesn't necessarily contradict my statement.)

Anyway thanks for the heads up.

No, no, the main event starts with hundreds of players. It will not be heads up for quite a while!

Such a waste to televise the National Championship. Its kind of a nothing tournament that nobody really cares about. Would much rather have more of the main.

Holy crap! Sickest beat ever!!!

The event is the "Big One for One Drop", a charity tournament with a $1 MILLION buy-in (11.1% of the buyins go to a charity called One Drop, that works to provide drinking water to places in the world that don't have much of it). 42 players, top prize of about $15 million.


And then this happened:

Sick Beat

Did you notice that Katz asked Drinan to just chop it and Drinan seemed to ignore him?

I would always chop in that situation. Drinan screwed himself.

I would not be surprised if tournament rules don't allow chopping and Katz was just joking.

I would guess no chopping. It's rarely ever allowed in a tourney. Cash games, sure. But not a tourney ... not unless you are chopping the winnings at the end.

Just finished The Big One for One Drop. Fun tournament. Kid Poker sure is looking old!

I'm bummed that the only other event they are televising is The Main Event. I'm hoping I'll be able to keep for being spoiled for the November 9. The last few years I've managed to avoid spoilers and it has really improved my enjoyment of the weekly episodes.

When they broadcast, hopefully the SAP channel will have everything except Norman Chad.

Well, I think the name obviously is not apropos anymore, but I guess I can't picture him as "looking old".. At least not really old how I expect that term to mean.

Someone told me DN had hair plugs or something. Personally I'm clueless at recognizing these things.

I don't know for sure, but it looked to me like he did have them (hair plugs).

Yes. You can see what they broadcast in 2013 here:

http://www.pokernews.com/news/2013/0...ight-15969.htm

Looks like 10 fewer episodes over 5 days of broadcasting.

They did start with the National Championship which mirrors what they did last year with 2 other events during the summer.

Also, archives of the final table webcasts are available at wsop.com.

http://www.wsop.com/videos/?vcat=2

Some of them have some excellent commentary. I'm going to go back and check out a few of those myself. They can be more interesting than the polished ESPN broadcasts if you're really into poker as the broadcasts by necessity leave so much out.

The Main Event

I've been watching the weekly episodes. Just started the 10/12 episodes, but thought I'd dig up this thread and post about previous eps.

Watching/listening to the featured table with Kyle Keranen and the guy from Oregon/Mexico (can't remember his name right now) was painful. I'm glad there was a new cast of characters at the featured table for the 10/12 telecast.

eta: Curtis Rystadt was the name I couldn't remember.

I'm a couple behind, but this guy was annoying as heck. I actually thought he was a *bit* amusing at times, but overall, annoying.

BTW, yes I'm Tivoing the show, but since they _usually_ show up on On Demand WITHOUT commercials, I tend to watch there out of laziness.. Yet strangely only SOME episodes are showing up, and even stranger, different eps are showing up in the HD and non-HD section of ESPN On Demand. Or rather, there were I think 3 or 4 in the non-HD, but only 1 in the HD.

Is there any direct way to complain to Comcast about On Demand, rather than just calling them up (which I suspect would be pointless, so I wouldn't do it, esp since I already Tivoed them anyway).

Re: 10/12/14 Second Episode

Just a warning in case you are not caught up - don't read further...







I was SOOO glad to see Kyle Keranen take out Rystadt himself, and in a very nice "payback's a b!tch" fashion!

The guy was annoying the crap out of me when they were at the TV table. Keranen said they were playing at the same table for 10 hours! Not sure I could have kept my cool, but that says something about Keranen's temperament - good on him.

Also a bonus that Rystadt didn't make the money bump, either.

I was not sorry to see Rystadt go out to Keranen. Though the featured table did get a bit boring this week (at least it didn't really hold my attention.)

Agree 100%

I know it's probably good TV, but I'm a little bothered that they gave Rystadt so much air time and then interviewed him afterward (although I always ff through those). Just tells folks for next year that if you act like an ass, you'll get more TV time and be interviewed.

I agree. That whole Keranen/Rystadt stuff was super annoying.

However, I understand how the producers work. They are trying to tell stories. Of course the ultimate one leads up to the winner, but they also look for subplots. That conflict was just begging to be condensed into the show seeing as they don't really have all that much that is that obvious.
