Live Streaming Update:
Throughout the week, final tables were live streamed. If you missed any, they are still available on ESPN3. The easiest way to find them is to click on the LIVE Coverage link at WSOP.com. Click Final Table Live Streaming on the drop down. When the next screen displays, click on the play symbol over the gold bracelet. Another screen will open displaying ESPN3 (probably the Upcoming tab). Click on the Replay tab, and choose your tournament.
In addition to the live stream with commentator (David Tuckerman) and hole cards, there have been “other” final tables streamed at the same time. Some without commentary nor hole cards…but you get to see the action. These are available through the live update screens related to the tournament.
Live Streaming Times: Check ESPN3 daily for the time that final tables will stream. It appears that they originally post 4:30 PM or 5:30 PM. That time gets adjusted as players get knocked out of the tournament.
Twelve Events will start, and 6 of them will be No Limit Hold’em tournaments; from $1k – $3k buy ins; regular, six-handed and mixed max.
Event #17 will complete. 2,105 runners started in this $1,500 No Limit Hold’em tournament. 15 poker players remain with David “Bakes” Baker in the chip lead at the end of day two.
