PartyPoker Sponsors TV show
GIBRALTAR - (PRESS RELEASE) - 28th June 2010 - PartyPoker is proud to sponsor the new season of 'The Poker Show with Jesse May,' with the first one hour show being broadcast on Wednesday 30th June and available to download from 12pm. The Matchroom Sport produced show is available to download on the PartyPoker.com blog and through ITunes every Wednesday and Sunday throughout July. To mark the new sponsorship the guests for the opening show will be Team PartyPoker.com's Mike Sexton, Tony G and Kara Scott.
After each of the first eight scheduled shows there will be an exclusive $5+1 tournament on PartyPoker.com every Thursday and Monday (under the specials tab). Winners of each of the eight tournaments go into a final freeroll on Sunday 1st August where the winner will get a seat for the televised Main Event of the WPT London Poker Classic, which runs from 30th August – 4th September (value of £5,000). The tournaments are password protected and the passwords will be available through listening to the show and joining the mailing list. There are also exclusive great value bonuses for new and existing PartyPoker.com customers available through the show.
Jesse May said: "I'm very excited about the new format. The last three seasons have been trial and error but I think we have cracked the formula. The key words are big names and fast paced – the strength of the show has always been all the great contacts we have in the poker world but now we think we are coming to something that the listeners will love hearing rather than just the people we interview."
Shortly after the opening show Jesse flies out to Las Vegas to join the thick of the action at the WSOP and the second instalment of the series will be online on Sunday 4th July. Further shows with exclusive content from Vegas will be available on the 7th, 11th, 14th, 18th, 21st and 25th July before the show takes a brief break for Jesse to get his breath back. The show returns on Sunday August 29 to build up to the WPT and WSOPE coming to London. The one hour episodes then continue to be posted online every Wednesday and Sunday until the final show of the series on Wednesday September 29.
The Poker Show with Jesse May has run for three series - beginning in April 2009 and finishing in May this year.
