The 2013 World Series of Poker schedule will bring the best players from around the world to Las Vegas. Starting on May 30, ESPN3 will bring them right to your computer, tablet or smartphone.
ESPN3 will broadcast 35 final tables from the 2013 WSOP featuring commentary by David Tuchman and a rotation of top professional poker players. The stream will feature hole cards, but to preserve the integrity of the event, the stream will be on a 30-minute delay.
"The card information will be known to the viewers by using RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology for the very first time at the WSOP," said the WSOP in a press release. " Each card has a microchip embedded in it that has no impact on the cards or play, but with a specially-outfitted poker table, can send an encrypted signal to decipher the card's rank and suit. The WSOP has used this technology during the 2012-13 WSOP Circuit season with success, and it is found throughout European poker events as well."
The schedule below is a preliminary list of events that can be found on ESPN3 over the next 39 days. The WSOP may change what event will be broadcast each day and will offer events not listed below on WSOP.com.
