ESPN to broadcast PCA final table

16 December 2010

(PRESS RELEASE) -- ESPN2 and ESPN3.com will present same-day coverage of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) final table on Saturday, January 15. ESPN3.com will provide coverage in HD with a one-hour, unedited delay at 5 p.m. ET with ESPN2 HD joining with a simulcast at 10 p.m. Fans will be able to watch on either outlet until the crowning of the new PCA Main Event champion.

"For the first time viewers at home will see a poker telecast from start to finish, with all the strategy of world-class poker players playing in real time and completely unedited," said Matt Volk, ESPN manager, programming and acquisitions.

PokerStars.net North America Regional Marketing Director, Joe Versaci, said: "This is one of the most exciting announcements ever in televised poker. This is the first time people watching online or on TV will be able to see everything that happens at a poker table. So much happens in poker that never makes it to the final TV edit, but this will show exactly how top-level players go about winning a massive tournament. There's so much money on the line – it's going to be gripping."

The PCA tournament will take place at the Atlantis Hotel and Resort in the Bahamas with an estimated main event prize pool of more than $20 million dollars and top prize of more than $2 million."
