“We’re looking forward to showcasing the World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific Main Event to our viewers for the first time ever,” said Doug White, ESPN senior director of programming and acquisitions. “WSOP events are always filled with drama and the season leading up to the greatest night of poker—the Final Table in November—will definitely be must-watch television for poker fans.”

Main Event Final Table coverage on Monday, Nov. 4, will continue until three players remain. Main Event Final Table coverage on Tuesday, Nov. 5, will continue until one player remains.

ESPN.com will offer blogs, podcasts and interviews with the game’s top players.
