    it's on ESPN every night, but only for about 3 hours or so of 10 hours of daily play. Poker Go also has coverage, but I believe you have to pay for that

    A few years ago they showed it live during the day on one of the alternate channels for a few hours but there is only so much you can show when there are dead hands all the time. Watching 8 people fold every hand is not exciting so they went back to edited stuff each night. With that said, following along with one specific person has been a lot of fun.

    When do they start up again today?

    Last night they were broadcasting on espn the earlier days were on espn 2 it is not the full day but usually a 6 hour broadcast. I have not seen our hero on TV as there are just too many tables to have them all taped so they have 2 or 3 featured tables that they televise and then go to random tables once in a while.

    GREAT RUN !!!

    Keep it up. This is great fun following along. You've got a greatVMB online rail behind you every step of the way.

    Watch out for sly Brian Koon, but otherwise just keep doing what you've been doing its worked out great so far.

    Wow! Long time member here but I sadly admit that I hardly log in anymore :( Was directed to this thread and loved reading your updates. I'm an avid poker fan and have been watching both tv and PokerGO. Keep up the great game and run deep! Remember AQ is no good. Ever. Like, muck that crap and take a walk lol. (Personal experience at the WSOP)

    Much like any big championship ring, I agree that a WSOP bracelet can not be ugly no matter HOW UGLY it is!
