USA.- July 25, 2023 www.zonadeazar.com PokerOrg, the official media partner of the WSOP Circuit Tour, has announced that it will bring its live event poker news coverage to the World Series of Poker (WSOP) circuit stops, for the approaching 2023/2024 season.
Ty Stewart, WSOP Executive Director, said: “Poker boom 2.0 is in full swing and we’re proud the WSOP Circuit has evolved into the most played tournament series in the world.
“We’ve heard our players loud and clear and they want more coverage and better coverage for WSOP Circuit events. We’re thrilled PokerOrg has made the commitment to become the primary media partner of the WSOP Circuit.”
The WSOP Circuit previously included reporting from PokerNews, the PokerStars-owned news organisation, but the tour is now without a media partner after PokerNews stopped covering the tournaments in 2020.
Starting with Choctaw Durant in Oklahoma from 17 July to 30 July, the WSOP Circuit season will move on to Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina from 3 August to 14 August, and will conclude with the WSOP series in Las Vegas the following summer.
Eric Hollreiser, CEO of PokerOrg, said: “WSOP Circuit players have been underserved in media coverage for too long and PokerOrg is eager to bring a fresh new approach to live poker coverage.
“Our player-focused, social-media style of reporting will give the players, the venues and the WSOP tons of opportunities to feature the skills, talents and personalities that make poker the most popular mind sport in the world.”
