Well, this goes without saying, isn’t it? One of the biggest poker tournament in the world and for years it was the only poker show on the television. Fred Christenson, TV executive had secured rights to the WSOP for ESPN and obtained a hole card camera which clearly changed the feel of the event!

The long history takes us back to 1970s when the filming of WSOP was produced by Binion’s Horseshoe and narrated by Jimmy Synder. Nearly 30 years later, the WSOP was broadcast by The Discovery Channel. Coming to the present coverage, PokerGO has had exclusive WSOP broadcast rights since 2017, with shared coverage of  events appearing on Twitch and CBS All Access.

An American reality show which was debuted on G4TV in August 2019. It follows four online poker players sharing a house in Las Vegas, Nevada and their goal to collect $2 million in two months by using their own money. The members of the show were elite grinders like Dani ‘Ansky’ Stern, Jay ‘KRANTZ’ Rosenkrantz, Brian ‘flawless_victory’ Roberts and Emil ‘whitelime’ Patel. In order to spice up things, producers encouraged them to go for the typical Vegas experience in clubs and typical Vegas life. A total of 10 episodes were shot but ultimately the cast fell short of their goal and earned $676,700.

The Shark Cage is presented by PokerStars. The show comprises of series of six-handed sit and go tournaments with winner from each event advancing to finals where the eventual champion takes home a whopping $1 million while others walk out empty handed. Many big names have taken their seats on the show, including the poker pro Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Miss Finland Sara Chafak.

Basically, when the action reaches the river, one can press a bluff button that is hidden under the table and if they successfully bluff the opponent, they have to spend one orbit in the Shark Cage but if the opponent successfully calls the bluff, then the bluffer spends an orbit in the Shark Cage as a penalty.
