PokerGO has partnered with CBS Sports Network to provide WSOP coverage with the likes of Lon McEachern, Norman Chad, and Jamie Kerstetter returning to the WSOP broadcast booth this year, along with PokerNews Podcast co-host Jeff Platt from time to time.

CBS Sports Network will televise 16 pre-produced and edited episodes of the 2021 World Series of Poker Main Event, after striking a multi-year deal earlier this year. This deal sees coverage of the WSOP Main Event return to its original broadcast partner after featuring on CBS Sports Spectacular in the mid-1970s.

All 16 episodes will be televised following the conclusion of the tournament.

PokerGO will provide live streaming duties of the World Championship event starting on Day 1A (November 4) until the end on November 17, except Day 1B (November 5).

Away from the Main Event, there will be additional coverage of more than two dozen tournaments thru November 23, 2021. They include the $50,000 Poker Players Championship and the $250,000 Super High Roller.

Adam Friedman

Seven Card Stud

Adam Friedman:   /    / 
Mike Gorodinsky:   /    / 

The action was picked up on sixth street with Friedman having check-called the bet of Gorodinsky.

Seventh street saw Friedman check again. Gorodinsky fired out a bet and was raised by Friedman. This sent Gorodinsky deep into the tank, but after some time he decided to fold, and Friedman was awarded the pot.

Jake Schwartz Leads Going Into Final Day of Event #36: $10,000 Dealer's Choice Championship

Jake Schwartz is seeking his first WSOP bracelet

Today, the final 10 players of Event #36: $10,000 Dealer's Choice Championship will battle it out on the green felt until a champion is crowned. Jake Schwartz enters Day 3 best positioned to take home the WSOP gold bracelet and $248,350 first-place prize with his 1.38 million in chips. Not far behind him, however, is two-time defending champion Adam Friedman, who is the only other player currently with over a million in chips (1.329 million).

Of course, several other top tournament players round out the final ten and will also be looking to take home the gold, including Daniel Negreanu, Mike Matusow, Mike Gorodinsky, and Phil Hellmuth — who is still fresh off his 16th bracelet victory and will be looking to further cement his poker legacy. Of the ten remaining players, eight are WSOP bracelet winners.
