WSOP Final Table: Following it on US TV and the Net

WSOP live show ratings were great this year (though the regular TV shows' ratings were down substantially) so ESPN has decided to show the entire 2011 WSOP Main Event final table live, with hole cards, on a 15-minute delay.

The final table will start on ESPN2 and ESPN3 (live streaming) at 3:30 PM eastern on Sunday, continuing until they've played down to 3 players. There will be a 90-minute dinner break at about 9:30 or 10 PM eastern.

Then on Tuesday night they'll play down from 3 to a champion, also live, starting at 9PM on ESPN and ESPN3. It's expected to run 3-4 hours, but they'll show it till the end unless it runs extremely long, say over 8 hours.

  1. No more November Nines (delayed final tables) it looks like: if they're going to air it live there's no reason to delay the final table, the WSOP's Seth Palansky points out.

    I do hope they move to real live hole cards in the future though. With a 15-minute delay not showing the hole cards on TV till the hand is over is overkill.
