Where and When to Watch the 2016 WSOP in Canada

2016 WSOP on TSN in Canada
  • Watch the 2016 WSOP in Canada on TSN!

With all but the final table of the Main Event concluded, the 2016 World Series of Poker (WSOP) is queued up to be broadcast on televisions around the world in the next two months.

The most celebrated event in all of poker is the annual WSOP Main Event which carries a buy-in of $10,000 and each of the nine final-tablists are guaranteed to make at least $1 million each. The WSOP World Champion will earn an incredible $8 million.

Canadian eyes will be on the one contender from our nation. Thirty-one-year-old Griffin Benger originally made his name playing the video game Counter-Strike professionally, but in recent years has become respected as a great poker player both online and live. He has also gained wide recognition this year as the cohost of Global Poker League’s live streams in their inaugural season. Only one Canadian has ever won this tournament. Jonathan Duhamel did so in 2010 and Benger is eager to become the second Canadian to earn the title.

ESPN’s coverage of the WSOP National Championship and WSOP Main Event will be shown across 16 episodes, followed by three nights of live broadcasts of the final table. In Canada, all of ESPN's WSOP coverage will be broadcast by TSN.

TSN’s broadcasts begin on September 9 with the first of the two-part coverage of the 2016 WSOP National Championship. The first of the 14 episodes of the WSOP Main Event begins on September 13. The live final table will be played across October 30 and 31 and November 1 on TSN2.
