When and Where to Watch the 2018 WSOP Main Event
Not everyone can plunk down ten thousand bucks and jump in the WSOP Main Event. Maybe your bankroll is more $10 than $10,000. But we can all dream. We can all check out the action on television and critique a player’s failed bluff, or learn from a talented pro’s play on the felt. Or we can see what entrance Phil Hellmuth has planned this summer – or if he can control himself after a bad beat. Or if that guy who played deep last year while wearing a Superman costume will be back (this really happened).
The good news is that no matter your skill level, bankroll, or even if you play poker at all, this summer offers viewing opportunities like never before. PokerNews will bring you all the WSOP live updates you can ask for, but there's more. ESPN and PokerGO will be offering a big schedule of live streams, every day of the Main Event you can tune in.
With Monday’s first flight of the Main Event, the live coverage is right around the corner. Viewers can expect plenty of insight from a commentary crew that includes the voices of the WSOP Lon McEachern and Norman Chad, as well as Nick Shulman, Ali Nejad, Maria Ho, Antonio Esfandiari, and others. Here’s your guide to the complete schedule.
