WSOP.com to LIVE WEB STREAM 60 WSOP GOLD BRACELET FINAL TABLES
Seeking Player Analysts to Add Color Commentary to Webcasts

LAS VEGAS (May 16, 2012) – During the 2012 World Series of Poker, WSOP.com, the official website of the World Series of Poker will be the exclusive home to live video of all 60 of the final tables of the official WSOP gold bracelet events.

Up to three final tables a day could be streamed, but in most instances, two different final tables will stream, with scheduled start times of 1:00 pm PT and 2:00 pm PT.

All live streaming will begin when the official final table gets underway, thus hard start times are difficult to predict but announcements will be made via the WSOP’s official Twitter feed at www.twitter.com/WSOP.

Two distinct streams will be available.  

The primary stream will feature six different cameras along with announcer/analyst commentary.  These webcasts will feature flop games in most instances and be streamed from the main WSOP stage inside the Amazon Ballroom at the Rio.

Renowned play-by-play anchor David Tuchman will serve as the WSOP’s official announcer for the primary webcasts and will be joined by a rotating group of player analysts.  Jay “WhoJedi” Newnum will serve as the WSOP’s Video Coordinator overseeing the streaming project, and any players interested in being part of the coverage are encouraged to contact Jay via Twitter @WhoJedi.

We anticipate the primary stream to feature 34 WSOP gold bracelet events over 45 days of coverage, beginning with Event #1 on Monday, May 28 and continuing through Sunday, July 8.

All the primary streams will emanate from the Amazon Ballroom’s Main Stage. “It doesn't get bigger or better than the World Series of Poker,” said Tuchman.  “I am excited and humbled to be working with the WSOP to bring the live stream to a hungry and growing audience.”

When two or more final tables are taking place on the same day, WSOP.com will employ a simple two-camera, fly-on-the-wall web stream for the additional coverage, in the same manner used at the 2011 WSOP and throughout the WSOP Circuit this season.  These streams will feature audio from the tournament director’s microphone.  Most non-flop games will be featured in these webcasts.

The Pavilion Ballroom Stage will serve as the secondary final table location, with a set-up in front of the Media Press Box in the Amazon Purple section housing the third final table location, during the two days this WSOP where three final tables are scheduled on the same day.

All WSOP.com live final table web streams will be on a 5-minute delay without hole cards, to conform to gaming regulations.

Veetle.com returns in 2012 as the WSOP’s official streaming provider.  Veetle is dedicated to changing how people connect and communicate using live video.  As an added enhancement to this year’s coverage, WSOP.com will archive the final table streams to allow the ability to replay an event. We invite live attendees and players to download the Veetle app (mobile.veetle.com) and share your WSOP moment.
