There will also be a news ticker which will be kept up to the minute with all the latest updates, as well the opportunity for viewer interactivity via social media. Any budding poker players still have time to qualify and can visit the Last Chance Saloon at for a full list of the remaining satellite games.

May himself indicated that viewers are in for a treat, stating that the coverage is going to be “revolutionary” and “more of an action-packed web-show than a basic live stream.” Reporters will be covering every inch of the room, and will provide on-the-fly interviews, constantly updated chip counts, and a feature table. This is in addition to coverage on blogs, Twittter and Facebook. “You name it we’ve got it” said Jesse.

“We’re going to be transporting viewers from their sofa right into the heart of this unique tournament in a way no-one has managed to do before and I for one can’t wait” continued May “see you in Dublin!”

See you there.
