Poker fans can finally see each hand played to its finish in the upcoming coverage of the PCA Final Table  in the PokerStars.net Caribbean Adventure.

The tournament is currently going strong, working toward its end and big finale scheduled on Saturday January 15th. During play, the coverage is from Daniel Negreanu, Chris Moneymaker and David Williams. These stars will give insights and keep the audience interested in the strategy hands. Daniel should be in a great mood with his recent leap in to the title of #1 in the tournament play winnings list, passing up Phil Ivey this week.

The final table gets underway at 4PM ET and ESPN3 begins coverage with only a one-hour delay. The audience will see the top players’ hands with a hole camera. At the main event, ESPN2 will begin coverage at 10PM ET, giving the audience two stations to watch nearly live-action play.

“For the first time viewers at home will see a poker telecast from start to finish, including hole cards and completely unedited, revealing all of the strategy, angst and competition of world-class players,” analyzed Matt Volk, ESPN programming manager.

The poker world has come a long way from the traditional edited version of final table play. This means the audience is hungry for hands usually ending up on the editor’s cutting board. This raw version may spark a new era in tournament coverage, where in the recent past programming VPs have created a colorful reality of final-table action.
