Pokernews.com, of which UK Poker News is part, has announced an exclusive agreement with Bluff Media LLC to provide live updates and chip counts from the World Series of Poker and other WSOP branded events.
The service to be provided by Pokernews will be delivered via its market-leading Live Update tournament reporting software but, in a world first, this will be "simulcasted" on a near real-time basis across all Pokernews' foreign language sites, ensuring that the service will reach a truly global poker audience.
The Live Updates from the WSOP and WSOP Circuit events will produce play by play action and chip counts, to be published on the www.worldseriesofpoker.com website in addition to each Pokernews website.
Bluff Media LLC, the publisher of "Bluff" magazine, will provide broadband video, streaming and real-time content, management of www.worldseriesofpoker.com and live radio coverage on satellite radio and via web streaming.
