The 2015 World Series of Poker main event television coverage premieres tonight on ESPN2 and the WatchESPN app starting at 8 PM eastern. This will mark the first of three weeks of back-to-back hour-long episodes which will be slated against the ratings juggernaut that is Monday Night Football.

As has been the case since 2003, Norman Chad and Lon McEachern will be in the commentary booth calling the action for all of the WSOP coverage.

On Sunday, Oct. 4 coverage will move over to ESPN’s flagship channel with 150-minute episodes beginning at 8:30 PM. After five weeks of coverage the final table will be set.

On Nov. 8 the November Nine will return to Las Vegas to play out the final table live (with a 30-minute tape delay due to gaming regulations) beginning at 8 PM EST. This year the final table will be spread over three days, playing down to four on the first night and then down to heads-up on the second. The third and final night, Nov. 10, will determine the next WSOP main event champion.

The WSOP released a promo video today highlighting the coverage of the early days of the event. Check it out below:

WSOP ME is straight to ESPN2 now? It used to be first-run episodes on ESPN, with re-runs on ESPN2. Maybe the first step in ESPN dropping coverage entirely? I hope not.
