“Live At The Bike” To Broadcast WSOPC Events
Providing something a little extra for the first ever stop by the World Series of Poker Circuit on its grounds, the Bicycle Casino has warmed up their servers to provide coverage of the ring events through its popular “Live At The Bike” internet feed.
The Bicycle Casino has been providing this feed since the start of the tournament back on January 1, with four final tables of the ring events being broadcast. This will continue through January 12, when the $1500 Main Event final table will play out and reward the eventual champion with the WSOPC Championship Event ring. Along the way, several top names in the poker community will be offering their commentary of the tournaments.
On Saturday, a $300 No Limit Hold’em will be the featured event, with the commentators sure to offer excellent insight into the proceedings. Beginning at noon (Pacific time), Maria Ho and Tiffany Michelle will step to the mikes of “Live At The Bike” to provide coverage of the tournament. Taking over at 6PM will be longtime “Live At The Bike” host Bart Hanson, alongside Adam Strohl and Keith Woernle.
Sunday’s action will be more intense, featuring the final table play in the $500 No Limit event. For Sunday’s play, noted poker player Alex Outhred will be joined by Scott Seligson at noon for the start of play. At 6PM, John Wray and Strohl will take over the broadcast through the end of the action.
Two of the bigger tournaments will take place during the upcoming week. On Sunday, the $1000 No Limit Hold’em event begins and will be the featured tournament during the live broadcasts on Monday. For the play on Monday, Nichoel Jurgens will join Outhred for the noontime start, while Outhred will continue on for what might be a long day by carrying over to the evening broadcast alongside David Tuckman and top poker professional and two-time WSOP bracelet winner Jeff Madsen.
Tuesday marks the start of the $1500 WSOPC Main Event, which will be the featured coverage on Wednesday (Day Two action) and Thursday (Day Three). Nick Brancato will join Tuckman for the Wednesday afternoon broadcast, while Outhred will be joined by Las Vegas grinder Stacey Nutini for the evening broadcast. The Thursday play will go until they determine a champion, with Brancato and Outhred in the afternoon and Tuckman and Nutini handling the night shift.
The Bicycle has stated that there could be more guest hosts that come along for the ride during these special broadcasts of “Live At The Bike,” but further details haven’t been released.
As an additional treat for poker fans who watch the WSOPC proceedings through the “Live At The Bike” feed, twelve viewers will be chosen to receive a special three month VIP membership for the regular “Live At The Bike” feed. This is a roughly $30 value and would allow the chosen winners the opportunity to watch the regular programming provided on “Live At The Bike,” which normally feature cash game action on Tuesdays and Fridays.
All in all, the opportunity to watch the action as it goes down in California for the first WSOPC event of 2012 is a special one, indeed.
