World Poker Tour Debuts 'WTP Poker Corner'

8 October 2004

WEST HOLLYWOOD, California -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- The WORLD POKER TOUR(TM) (WPT) and Travel Channel will once again break new ground, this time by launching the first televised "poker analysis show." The entertainment companies that transformed poker into a riveting spectator sport and spawned a wave of imitators will debut the inaugural episode of WPT Poker Corner on Wednesday, October 13th. WPT Poker Corner will air immediately following the broadcast of the Season Two WPT Championship. The evening's lineup on Travel Channel will start at an earlier time than usual--8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT--to accommodate WPT Poker Corner's debut at 10 p.m. ET / 7 p.m. PT.

Filled with tips from the pros and heated debate, WPT Poker Corner breaks down the WPT Championship hand-by-hand, in an unrehearsed and dynamic hour of analysis. WPT Commentator Mike Sexton is joined by world famous poker pros Daniel Negreanu, Annie Duke and Phil Hellmuth, who dissect the Final Table play where the stakes-- $8.3 million dollars--were the highest in history to that point. Peek through the poker keyhole and get the insiders' view on tells, reads, and strategies for improving your own game.

"The addition of WPT Poker Corner to the WORLD POKER TOUR's Wednesday nights on Travel Channel makes for a full night of poker entertainment, perfect for both die-hards and newcomers alike," said Steve Lipscomb, President of WPT Enterprises and creator of the show. Show host Mike Sexton added, "Players who are serious students of the game will enhance their own play with what they learn on WPT Poker Corner. Furthermore, watching WPT Poker Corner will offer viewers a completely different perspective into the WPT Championship."

The evening begins with the 8 - 10 p.m. ET / 5 - 7 p.m. PT airing of the Season Two WPT Championship. WPT Poker Corner premieres immediately after from 10 - 11 p.m. ET / 7 - 8 p.m. PT. The cycle then repeats for six hours of non-stop poker entertainment, with a second airing of the Season Two WPT Championship from 11 p.m. - 1 a.m. ET / 8 -10 p.m. PT followed by a second airing of WPT Poker Corner from 1 - 2 a.m. ET / 10 - 11 p.m. PT.

The WORLD POKER TOUR, which was the first show on U.S. television to reveal the players' hole cards, will broadcast 16 new tournaments filmed at leading casinos and exotic locales from Las Vegas to Paris, beginning with the launch of its third season in March 2005.
