With the World Series of Poker set to start in mere days, PokerStars has announced that PokerStars Radio will again provide live coverage of this year’s WCOOP beginning at 20:00 BST on September 2 and continuing through September 23, 2012. Coverage will resume at the same time every day as returning host, Joe Stapleton, and quipsters, Nick Wealthall and Matt Broughton, keep listeners up-to-date about everything that’s happening in each of this year’s 65 WCOOP events.
Rafa Nadal, the newest addition to Team SportStars at PokerStars, was recently given a crash course on what it means to bluff. In this entertaining reality style hidden camera video, Nadal poses as a receptionist and denies being Nadal when questioned. Watch the full video below, titled I’m Not Rafa, The Art of Bluffing:
In addition to providing real-time coverage, PokerStars Radio’s WCOOP broadcasts will include interviews with some of the world’s best poker players, members of Team PokerStars Pros and Team Online, former WCOOP champions, and some of this year’s event winners. Broadcasts will also give listeners the chance to take bitcoin blackjack part in live phone-in conversations and various competitions that will reward listeners with a total of more than $25,000 worth of prizes, including seats in WCOOP 2012 tournament events. Every PokerStars Radio – WCOOP broadcast will be fully interactive, in other words, to keep listeners both informed and wildly entertained.
On its website, PokerStars describes the World Championship of Online Poker as “the biggest and best tournament series anywhere online.” Now in its eleventh year, drawing thousands of poker players from around the world, and offering a guaranteed prize pool of $30 million, any person would be hard-pressed to refute PokerStars’ claim. And with the chance to win prizes and enjoy lively, timely coverage of this year’s WCOOP just by tuning into PokerStars Radio – WCOOP broadcasts, it would be equally hard to refuse to listen to the commentary of the show’s dynamic, knowledgeable hosts.
We’re really excited to bring you the next in our series of AMA, with the Pokerstars legend himself Daniel Negreanu (4 time WSOP bracelet winner)!
The AMA will take place between 6pm and 7pm ET on Wednesday (the 12th of December), and you can either tune in live or leave your questions in advance. Daniel will be answering questions under the “KidPoker” account for the full hour, and we’ve got some great questions lined up for him already.
