WSOP Announces Events ESPN Plans to Shoot

Wsop_logoHarrah's just announced the schedule of events ESPN plans to cover at the 2007 World Series of Poker, tentatively.

All together, ESPN, who it's worth noting employs the nicest, most easy-going and professional cameramen, assistant producers, audio techs and grips you'll ever find in the business, plans to shoot 16 hours of coverage of the WSOP Main Event, as well as 10 one-hour programs covering other bracelet events. The $50,000 HORSE Championship will receive six hours of airtime and the format of the final table will include all five games of HORSE, unlike last year which only had NLHE, which isn't HORSE.

The press release, which you can read in its entirety after the jump, lists out all the "coverage" events so narcissistic bastards who want to get their smug mugs on ESPN to "make good TV" for 5 seconds of fame can plan which ones they'll play. The announcement doesn't say when ESPN plans to air their coverage but the word PokerNews.com has is that the first event will air on July 10th, a week before the Main Event wraps, and that the Main Event will broadcast August 21. The HORSE event, according to PokerNews.com, will air as a special event this fall in October.

In related news, the video below of Britney Spears makes the narcisisstic freaky ass Brandi Hawbaker seem kind of normal.
