You Can Still Watch The WSOP On TV

The World Series Of Poker is one of the biggest live events in poker, and players around the world consider its Main Event to be the holy grail, the ultimate goal and achievement for the pros. Winning any WSOP bracelet places players in a position of prestige, but the Main Event really does attract the widest and most talented fields, making it one of the most exhilarating competitions in the poker world. You can watch the WSOP Main Event on TSN.

TSN Coverage
The WSOP 2017, sponsored by 888 Poker, took place from July 8th to July 22nd. TSN was to cover the event in Canada, but originally said that they wouldn’t be showing the WSOP due to the popularity of shows like the Canadian Football League, Major League Baseball and SportsCentre. Shortly before the WSOP Main Event started, TSN announced that they would indeed be showing the event, and covered the tables live during the action.

For anyone who missed the live coverage of the WSOP, TSN are currently broadcasting repeats of the event on TSN and TSN HD at 3 p.m. ET, with later viewings on TSN 2 at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET.

About The WSOP 2017 Main Event
The World Series Of Poker is one of the most prestigious events in tournament poker, attracting thousands of players across a range of high-stakes buy-ins. This year marked the 48th anniversary of the annual event, which was held once again at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas.

The Main Event is No-Limit Hold Em Poker, and this year had a $10,000 buy-in. There were a total of 7,221 entrants, and the top 1,084 players finished in the money, winning back more than their buy-in. Like most poker games, the real prize money is stacked towards finishing in the top handful of entrants, and this year every player who made the final table walked away with at least $1 million.
