In a press statement, PokerGO president Mori Eskandani remarked, “PokerGO is delighted to offer live broadcast coverage of the World Series of Poker for another year and to do so with our largest livestream offering ever.” We are well aware of the adoration with which our game and the WSOP are held by poker fans all around the globe. The 2023 World Series of Poker coverage we provide will be the gold standard for bringing poker to the world’s audience.
CBS Sports broadcasted portions of the WSOP in 2018, but hasn’t said whether or not they will do it again in 2023. Although the network is a WSOP partner, it did not do much to promote the tournament last year, instead focusing on promoting shows that had already aired.
Its World Series of Poker-centric website hasn’t been updated since July, when they covered Espen Jorstad’s Main Event victory.
After ESPN’s 19-year broadcasting partnership with the WSOP ended in 2021, CBS Sports took over the cable broadcast. Even if CBS Sports decides to start broadcasting certain games again, it won’t be until the autumn, long after the outcome is known.
CardsChat has contacted CBC Sports to inquire about their WSOP coverage and will provide an update whenever we get a response.
Over 70% of the WSOP’s 95 events will not be covered by PokerGO. The full schedule has not been released, but if the past is any indication, there will be many championship events (such as the $10,000 Stud, $10,000 HORSE, and $50,000 High Roller Pot-Limit Omaha) and many smaller events (such as the $400 Colossus) that attract huge numbers of players.
While most of the coverage will be available to subscribers only, PokerGo will stream select final tables on their YouTube channel for free.
The whole program will be made available in early May.
