WSOP Main Event Broadcast Schedule Announced

It is that time of year again. The latest big news out of the WSOP press office is the confirmation that Poker Central and ESPN will be carrying the live stream of the Main Event day by day as they have for the last few years.

The folks at WSOP.com also confirmed the schedule for the live streams. Day 1A will start broadcast on ESPN2 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time on the 1st July 2020.

As usual, the final table will be broken up over several days with the live streams balancing the number of players and time played. Expect there to be last-minute changes to that as has been the case in previous years.

The ESPN coverage only seems to be about 2-5 hours of the often 12 hour long days which means there is likely to be a fair amount of action that doesn’t make it to TV. 

How much more of the Main Event action this will turn out to be is still unconfirmed. Though they will be confirming the coverage of the other events in the next few weeks and have teased as much as 90 additional hours of this and other events.

We’ll have more coverage of the 2020 WSOP, as more details come to light.
