The WSOP 2022 series has been confirmed! The World Series of Poker is back and it’s bringing all the blood, sweat, and tears of a WSOP tournament back with it.
If you’re looking forward to all the action in May, read on to find out where you can watch.
What is there to see?
The World Series of Poker is the world’s biggest poker tournament, what isn’t there to see? See the best of the best come from around the world to play, and they leave with their pockets full of massive cash prizes.
The WSOP will find a new home in Bally’s and Paris and kicks off on May 31st, with cash prizes that go as far as $10,00 guaranteed!
There will be all the Omaha, Hold’em, Razz, limit and no-limit poker you can imagine. You can practically smell the green felt for yourself. Spot the beads of sweat dripping past poker faces. Feel the tension in the room rise with every raise.
Vince Vaughn has recently been named Master of Ceremonies, which means the famed comedy actor will be hanging around all the action, with no doubt a few quips to keep things interesting.
And of course, there are the players. Some names to keep an eye on include the multiple bracelet winners, Anthony Zinno, Michael Addamo, Kevin Gerhart and Jeremy Ausmus.
The GGPoker ambassador and vlogger Daniel Negreanu will be back, looking for a space for his RV but also his latest bracelet win. Plus, there is sure to be an appearance from The Poker Brat himself, Phil Hellmuth, and that appearance is bound to be adorned in costumes and skits again. But Hellmuth has expressed some disappointment with having missed out on the WSOP Player of the Year award yet again, so will be back to work towards that.
Where can I watch?
There are loads of places you can see the games up close. Study the poker faces for yourself with the players inches from you with all the coverage from the event.
If you’re looking to watch the games on the biggest screen you have, then tune into CBS Sports when the WSOP tournament starts on May 31st. Not only will all the events be aired, but there will be commentary to go along with it, with the odd interjection from Vince Vaughn.
The WSOP has recently moved from ESPN with a multi-year contract signed with CBS Sports, so don’t be disheartened if you tune into ESPN and don’t see any green tables.
But if you’re looking to tune in whenever you wish, you’d be better off looking at the streaming services of GGPoker. You will get all the events whenever you want them, streamed right to the site as GGPoker is in partnership with WSOP.
It is your one stop for all things poker. Open up an online game and get playing while your favourite players compete in the next window. Find all the coverage and clips on the GGPoker blog and follow professional players of the GGPoker GGTeam as they play.
And then there is the option of going to the tournament itself. The WSOP is moving to the Bally’s and Paris Casino in Las Vegas, and the most passionate players and fans can find themselves right in the middle of the action in person.
Is there more?
If you’re having trouble waiting until May for the WSOP 2022 to start, there are plenty of WSOP events happening in the run up.
You can tune into the WSOP PA in Pennsylvania for the WINter Wonderland, the WSOP NJ for the WSOP Signature Series and fans of online poker can take part in the WSOP Online Bracelet Series and the WSOP Online Circuit Series.
