WSOP on ESPN: Main Event Day 1A+1B - Aug. 18 ~8-10pm ET

The first of four two-hour programs covering the first day of the Main Event start tonight There's certain to be plenty of feel-good stories, players looking for their seconds of screen time, and a few hands of poker thrown in for good measure.

Edit: Guess that idea got scrapped, it's Day 1A and 1B today, with Day 1C/1D next week.

Question of the Decade:

If they can produce these shows in 6 weeks, why delay the FT for 4 frickin months?

And the relation here is what?
The final table coverage is shown the next day on ESPN.
These episodes lead up to the 11.9., last episode (down to 9) will be shown on Nov. 3rd.

The point is 4 months is way too long of a delay for the players. Secondly, we waited 4 months last year and only got to see 2 or 3 of the 168 HU hands.

Ah I see, a general rant about the delay.
Seemed like you were unaware about the real benefits of the delay, which have nothing to do with "getting more time for the coverage" or whatever.

This is all that ******* Brett Favres fault. His press conference made E60 run over

Go away Favre. Forever.

Brett Favre press conference ran late, I assume they are pushing the rest of the night's programming back. Should be on by 8:30.

Brett Favre press conference has delayed everything on their nightly schedule. As if anybody cares that the guy, who is a shadow of his former self, signed to play for the Vikes.

It just said 14 minutes from now it will start. Must have been a delay from an earlier game/show or something.

I assume the farve press conf ran late, so the programming is pushed back a bit?

Yet another reason to hate Farve! At least the public is finally starting to realize what a db he is.
