Next generation poker site PKR.com scores exclusive TV and screening rights for WSOP
Next generation online poker room PKR.com have recently announced that they have agreed a blockbuster deal with Bluff media that will see PKR.com act as the exclusive sole live broadcaster of 24 bracelet events from this year’s World Series of Poker.
With ESPN no longer broadcasting many World Series events across Europe, PKR.com will be the only place for poker fans to watch some of the biggest bracelet tournaments unfold. Even better news for European fans is the fact that they can watch the live action from one of the most eagerly anticipated WSOPs ever, free of charge when they log onto http://wsop.pkr.com/ – PKR.com’s very own World Series micro-site.
PKR.com’s most popular live broadcast looks sure to be full coverage from the final table of the $ 50,000 World Championship H.O.R.S.E, widely considered by many purists to be the true benchmark of the world’s most complete poker player. Other events certain to see many fans stay up late to watch them will include five $ 10,000 World Championship final tables of tournaments such as the $10,000 World Championship Heads Up No Limit Hold’em (event #29) and the $ 10,000 World Championship Pot Limit Omaha (event #41).
PKR.com Marketing Director Simon Prodger said, “The World Series of Poker is without doubt the biggest event of the poker calendar and it fills me with delight that PKR has managed to scoop exclusive rights to be the official broadcaster for these 24 bracelet events”.
As part of the deal PKR.com will also become the exclusive non-US sponsor of the official World Series of Poker website. The announcement tops ofF a year of unprecedented World Series activity for the company with the recent announcement of THE PKR.com World Series welcome party on the July, 1st at the Palms, along with a wide range of $ 12,500 World Series Main Event packages up for grabs now on www.PKR.com.
