POKERSTARS CARIBBEAN ADVENTURE MAIN EVENT FINAL TABLE ON ESPN

TORONTO, Dec. 17 /CNW/ - ESPN and PokerStars.net, the world's largest poker site, will have unedited coverage of the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) final table on Saturday, January 15, 2011, with the players' hole cards revealed! Coverage will be streamed live in HD (with a one-hour delay) beginning at 5 p.m. ET on ESPN3.com, ESPN's broadband network, and simulcast on ESPN2 beginning at 10 p.m. ET, until the crowning of the new PCA Main Event champion.

"For the first time viewers at home will see a poker telecast from start to finish, with all the strategy of world-class poker players playing in real time and completely unedited," said Matt Volk, ESPN manager programming and acquisitions.

PokerStars.net North America Regional Marketing Director, Joe Versaci, said: "This is one of the most exciting announcements ever in televised poker. This is the first time people watching online or on TV will be able to see everything that happens at a poker table. So much happens in poker that never makes it to the final TV edit, but this will show exactly how top-level players go about winning a massive tournament. There's so much money on the line - it's going to be gripping."

The PCA tournament will take place at the Atlantis Hotel and Resort in the Bahamas with an estimated main event prize pool of more than $20 million dollars and a top prize of more than $2 million.
