Players are in their seats and the tournament floor has announced cards in the air.
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.
Here's a look at the remaining PokerGO live-stream schedule:
|Friday, November 5||Event #60: $50,000 Poker Players Championship|
|Thursday, November 19||Event #79: $1,979 Poker Hall of Fame Bounty|
|Saturday: November 20||Event #82: $250,000 Super High Roller|

Event #61: $600 Deep Stack Championship No-Limit Hold’em is the second edition of the $600 deep stack bracelet events, which first came onto the WSOP schedule in 2019. Play will start today at 11 a.m. at The Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino.
The 2019 WSOP saw Joe Foresman come out on top in a field of 6,410 entrants to beat Will Givens heads up to take home his first WSOP bracelet and a prize of $397,903.
It is unsure as to how many players will participate in this edition of the event, but a big field is expected, given the accessibility to all players and the fact a WSOP bracelet is up for grabs.
Players will have a starting stack of 30,000 and blinds will begin at 100/100 with a 100 big blind ante. Day 1 is scheduled to play out 17 40-minute levels, with a 20-minute break taking place every three levels. A 75-minute dinner break is scheduled after level 9 and late registration for the tournament will be open until players return from dinner (approx. 6:55 p.m.). Players are permitted one re-entry for this tournament.
Stay tuned to PokerNews for updates on all the bracelet events taking place at the 2021 World Series of Poker.
