I will be working with Poker News for the 2007 WSOP providing live coverage on their site. They partnered up with Bluff, who is the official media provider for the WSOP. Poker News will be providing live updates and chip counts for every single event during the 2007 WSOP.
I will be also writing on the Tao of Poker and contributing to LasVegasVegas.com and writing copy to accompany Flipchip's amazing WSOP photos.
Due to new media rules, I am prohibited from live blogging at the Tao of Poker. I have been cleared by Harrah's and Bluff to write one post per day on the Tao of Poker.
I am going to repeat the last two sentences so you understand... Due to new media rules, I am prohibited from live blogging at the Tao of Poker. I have been cleared by Harrah's and Bluff to write one post per day on the Tao of Poker.
My posts are going to resemble what I did during the 2007 WPT Championships at the Bellagio. If you want specific live updates and chip counts, head over to Poker News. If you want the straight dope on the behind the scenes action at the WSOP, head over to the Tao of Poker.
Poker News mentioned the news in last Friday's article called PokerNews.com Announces Partnership with Bluff Media to Provide Exclusive Live Updates and Chip Counts For The WSOP:
PokerNews announced today the signing of an agreement with Bluff Media, LLC, to provide live-update and chip-count services for the World Series of Poker. The agreement includes the complete WSOP schedule itself, plus future WSOP Circuit and other WSOP-branded events. PokerNews will provide live 'play-by-play' reports from the tables and chip counts for the www.WorldSeriesofPoker.com site, information also to be available here at PokerNews... moreHere's what others are saying about the recent partnership with Bluff and Poker News:
Lance over at the Poker Biz blogged a blurb last week titled PokerNews given rights to WSOP chip counts and live updates.
The boys at Wicked Chops Poker were crushed to learn that Card Player did not get the gig this year. Alas, CP won't be the whipping boy this summer. Check out Noooooooooooo!!! PokerNews.com to Replace Card Player as Official WSOP Chip Counting and Live Reporting Source.
I'm honored, thankful, and grateful that I've been hired by John Caldwell and Poker News to be apart of their team. When Schecky put toegther his first coverage team for the Aussie Millions, fortunately, I made the cut. Since then, I've covered tournaments on three different continents for Poker News including the EPT Championships and the WPT Championships. They have a dedication to providing the best possible coverage and are willing to spend the necessary funds on assembling the preemiment reporters in the poker industry.
I've been working with some of the best in the business over the last few months and the results have been outstanding. Poker News will be adding several other familiar faces. Stay tuned for more details.
I move to Las Vegas in 15 days. The 2007 WSOP starts in 18 days. The Tao of Poker will be there for the third year in a row.
