Aussies Lisandro and Hachem Dominate ESPN's Poker Coverage
For those looking for a little poker action, Tuesday provides a wealth of televised poker when World Series of Poker Main Event coverage continues on ESPN at 8:00 p.m. EST. Having completed the early rounds of the championship event, the action focuses on players still in the hunt for the title including Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth and last year's champ, Peter Eastgate.
During ESPN's first hour of coverage, the WSOP's Player of the Year Jeffrey Lisandro leads the way at the featured table as he takes on all comers including fellow Australian and WSOP Main Event winner Joe Hachem. In the second hour, Lisandro and Hachem continue to battle while coverage shifts to former WSOP Main Event champions including Chris "Jesus" Ferguson, Greg Raymer, Hellmuth and Eastgate. Other players featured during hour two include Ivey, Kenny Tran and French wunderkind Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier.
If that's not enough action to satisfy your poker jones, then make sure to log on to ESPN.com for this week's edition of Inside Deal. Hosted by ESPN poker editor Andrew Feldman, ESPN the Magazine contributor Laura Lane and ESPN.com columnist Bernard Lee, the Inside Deal continues to provide poker audiences with interesting and entertaining industry coverage.

Arguably one of the most visible players in the game, Negreanu and the Inside Deal panel discuss his past high-stakes play, his 2009 WSOP performance and his obsession with golf and other sports.
