PokerListings.com was able to get these poker pros to open up during interviews and really get to the heart of their poker desires
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 29, 2006
Straight from the center of the World Series of Poker at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, PokerListings.com (http://www.pokerlistings.com/world-series-of-poker), home of the world’s best poker deals, is once again offering its readers the best and most extensive coverage of all the World Series of Poker events.
The site’s large team of reporters, writers, editors, directors, producers, photographers and poker players are working around the clock to provide PokerListings.com’s readers with up-to-the-minute reports, articles, interviews and videos as each event is played. Poker fans will not only find information about the big events and big names of poker, but also the up-and-coming players and the lesser known events such as Razz and Omaha.
PokerListings.com has met with several of the poker world’s top pros to discuss their poker careers and the future of the game. There are interviews with Phil Hellmuth, before and after he won his 10th WSOP bracelet, as well as two-time 2006 bracelet winner William Chen, the youngest person to win a WSOP event Jeff Madsen, and other pros like poker legend Doyle Brunson, Todd Brunson, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, Phil Gordon, Clonie Gowen and Chip Reese.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg as the list also includes poker celebrities such as James Woods and Shannon Elizabeth, who both made their first WSOP cashes this year, and some big names from the poker industry including WSOP Commissioner Jeffrey Pollack, WSOP Media Director Nolan Dalla, and poker author Mike Caro.
“Our readers will learn about the highs and lows, the bad beats and triumphs from the winners of each event themselves. From the famous pros to the average Joes and players on the rise, PokerListings.com has talked to as many people as we can to bring our readers a true inside look at the WSOP and poker world,” said Staffan Rydin, editor in chief of PokerListings.com. “The daily blogs only add to that as our writers tell the world their view of the WSOP, and give an idea of what’s going on both at the card tables and in Vegas itself during this seven-week tournament.”
A new feature added to PokerListings.com’s WSOP coverage this year is the daily video, which is being produced by Point Pictures, a Vancouver-based television, film and Internet video production company. Point Pictures has put together exciting and informative video interviews and segments featuring some of today’s hottest poker pros and up-and-coming players, including Andy Bloch, Dutch Boyd, Hoyt Corkins, Paul Darden, Kenna James, Liz Lieu, Marcel Luske and Rob Varkonyi. Viewers can also learn chip tricks, poker lingo and even a little about poker history from some of the videos.
“The daily video segments on PokerListings.com have a little bit of everything from exclusive interviews to event updates and more,” said Dani Elias, executive producer and CEO of Point Pictures. “We want to bring readers the latest news from the WSOP as well as help them get to know some of the old and new players of the game.”
Professional poker can be a tough world to be a part of, and the players featured in the daily videos are willing to divulge their winning strategies, favorite hands and advice on how to become a successful pro as well as inside information about themselves.
“PokerListings.com was able to get these poker pros to open up during interviews and really get to the heart of their poker desires,” said Mr. Elias. “Visitors to the site are going to hear their favorite pros talk about their poker beginnings, dream match-ups and their thoughts on the future of the WSOP, among other things.”
PokerListings.com’s WSOP coverage began June 24 with the onset of the 2006 Series and will extend until the World Championship final table is played out and a winner is crowned on August 10.
