Starting on Tuesday, July 3, poker fans will once again find the biggest events at the World Series of Poker on ESPN. Tuesday night remains poker night on ESPN and the WSOP main event, the WSOP National Championship and the $1 million buy-in Big One for One Drop will all be part of the 2012 broadcast schedule.

"Fans know Tuesday night is poker night on ESPN," said Doug White, ESPN senior director of programming and acquisitions. "Beginning with the Big One for One Drop and the WSOP National Championship, and continuing on Tuesdays with the WSOP Main Event, we will set the stage for this intense competition and continue the excitement through the Final Table in October."

Similar to its presentation in 2011, the WSOP main event final table will be broadcast virtually live, on a 15-minute delay. Additionally, the final day of the Big One for One Drop event will be broadcast virtually live on ESPN and ESPN3 on Tuesday, July 3 beginning at 4 p.m. ET.

Lon McEachern, Norman Chad and Kara Scott will return as talent for the weekly WSOP broadcasts that begin on Tuesday, July 31.
