Bluff Magazine Live Broadcasts

Harrah’s Entertainment and Bluff Magazine has signed a non-binding agreement to treat fans of the World Series of Poker tournament to a different type of coverage. Bluff Magazine will produce live radio broadcasts direct from the tournament. However, this is subject to official documentation outlining Bluff’s role in the process.
As broadcaster for the event, observers expect Bluff to broadcast coverage lasting for at least ten hours. This coverage is going to last from the day of the tournament, on 29 June, to the final table of the tournament; a $10,000 buy-in championship known as the Main Event. By tuning in to Sirius Satellite Radio Channel 125 avid poker fans can catch all the action.
Jeffrey Pollack, the Commissioner of the World Series of Poker, declared that this was yet another first in the world of poker. He went on to say that because of this fans could experience all the thrills and spills of the tournament on the Sirius Satellite Radio as well as having expert opinion and behind-the-scenes action from Bluff Poker Radio.
Eddy Kleid, the Bluff Media co-president also said that they were really excited to be liaising with the people at Sirius Satellite Radio and Harrah’s Entertainment for total radio coverage of the WSOP. He also hastened to add to his comments that the World Series of Poker is the number one gaming experience which offered the biggest purse. He said that their landmark coverage would bring all the thrills of the World Series of Poker to people as it happened live.
As well as running commentary over all major plays, the broadcast team will bring live interviews with some of the major players, interaction with fans, and analysis from each of the final tables; 45 in total.
Amongst others, the broadcast team will include Nick Geber, Fox World Analyst, Howard David, a play-by-play announcer for Monday Night Football, and John Vorhaus, a well-known poker journalist. And as a special addition to the broadcast team, the final table will involve commentary from Phil Gordon, the former host of Celebrity Poker Showdown.
