Poker On TV: 2013 World Series Of Poker On ESPN Kicks Off Tonight At 9 P.M. EST
Watch Daniel Negreanu Capture His Fifth Career Bracelet
Tonight (Tuesday) at 9 p.m. EST on ESPN, the 2013 World Series of Poker will get underway. The first episode will feature coverage of Daniel Negreanu’s big win in April.
Negreanu won the first-ever WSOP Asia Pacific main event, which was held in Melbourne, Australia. The host casino was the Crown Casino, and 405 runners showed up.
Negreanu collected a little over $1 million for his efforts, in addition to his historic fifth bracelet. He entered heads-up play with a 10-1 chip lead.
The fifth bracelet put Negreanu in a tie for 12th on the all-time list. He’s joined by the likes of Allen Cunningham, Scotty Nguyen, Ted Forrest, Berry Johnston and Stu Ungar.
In Las Vegas this summer, Negreanu was close to his sixth bracelet, finishing in second in a $2,500 limit deuce-to-seven triple draw lowball event.
Check out a teaser of the episode via the WSOP.
The coverage of poker’s most prestigious tournament series will run on Tuesdays from now until November, when the champion is crowned in summer’s main event.
On August 6, TV coverage picks up on Day 3 of the summer main event.
