ESPN’s press release states that it is expanding poker coverage to include “Inside Deal.” This PokerStars.net presentation will be a web-only show carried on ESPN that began on Tuesday, August 4. The show will air for three months, concluding when the World Series of Poker winner is announced.
The show will be co-hosted by Laura Lane, Bernard Lee, and Andrew Feldman. The show will cover some of the well-known players as well as poker news each week. In addition, it will give you an inside look into the world of poker. Moreover, viewers will be able to see features from the World Series of Poker including poker hands never aired.
Fans will love this show as it will give you the opportunity to submit questions to your favorite professional poker players via email, Twitter, and Facebook. Fans will also be given a chance to participate in a Sweepstakes! The winner will have the opportunity to experience November Nine.
Fans of Chris Moneymaker will hoot and holler as he will be the guest on the first “Inside Deal show.” Other guests will include Daniel Negreanu and Joe Hachem.
