If you have ESPN, and who in America doesn’t?…. you know that this Tuesday, the 29th, will see the return of the cabler’s poker coverage, with the cablecast of the 2009 World Series of Poker Main Event.
Having made the money, returning players will be looking to take their shots at becoming a member of the November Nine as 400 players start the action hoping to snag the millions of dollars at stake.
The first hour of play on the 29th (Tuesday night) focuses on a particularly strong table that features two wily veterans who have gone deep in previous WSOP Main Events: Andrew Black and 2009 November Nine member Jeff Shulman.
Joining the fray is 2009’s hottest player, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier.
In the second hour of play more than 300 players continue their fight for main event gold.
Players featured in the second hour include Joe Hachem, Peter Eastgate, Dennis Phillips, Phil Ivey and Dan Harrington.
I’ll be tuning in.
Send me your take on what happens.
