Far and away the most anticipated event of the poker year, the 2008 World Series of Poker* begins today in Las Vegas and poker fans will find the most comprehensive live coverage available online at PokerListings.com. (http://www.pokerlistings.com/live-tournaments/wsop).
With a veteran team of poker reporters behind the scenes for all 55 events, PokerListings.com offers an unmatched variety of features beyond the usual chip counts, including live updates and photos, daily video recaps and lifestyle pieces, in-depth hand analyses, pro-player blogs from Liz Lieu, Steve Wong and more, plus interviews with every bracelet winner and the most sought-after pros in poker.
"Every year we send our team to the WSOP*," says Hannah Mayen, media relations director at PokerListings.com, "we hear how much poker fans appreciate the original, engaging and professional approach we take to our coverage.
"Our veteran reporters live and breathe poker, and that really comes across in their updates and features. They're bright, witty and committed to the most accurate and insightful coverage possible, and we think they truly set the bar for poker coverage online.
"Every year we also expand our team to ensure no detail or story goes unnoticed, and this year is no exception -- headlined by our new and improved video gallery."
Hosted by the gregarious and charming Amy Macbride, an industry vet with experience at NBC, CNN and E!, the new PokerListings.com video recap will condense a day's worth of action into an entertaining streaming video that will keep poker fans completely up to speed on each day's key hands, results and talking points.
Also in the new and improved video gallery will be more interviews with the world's most renowned poker pros, and more than a few glimpses into what really goes down behind closed doors when the poker world congregates for its flagship event.
More reporters, more blogs, more photos and more first-person looks into what really makes the World Series and its players tick are all part of the mix, providing poker die-hards with the most wide-ranging coverage available.
"The World Series simply has the year's most compelling poker stories, on the felt and off," adds Mayen, "and our reporters put the effort in to capture the off-the-radar moments and lesser-known personalities that really make the Series what it is.
"With a record number of new championships and a historic format change to the Main Event, the 2008 WSOP* stands to be one of the most compelling ever -- and Pokerlistings.com will be bringing our readers every last detail."
