PokerOrg, the fast-growing poker news source, will bring its modern, player-obsessed, social-first and vibrant style of live event poker news coverage to the World Series of Poker (WSOP) circuit stops for the fast-approaching 2023/2024 season as the Official Media Partner of WSOP Circuit Tour, it was announced today.
PokerOrg has established itself for its fresh, exciting and highly visual approach to bringing poker news, information and entertainment to life on the web, social channels and at live poker events. PokerOrg represents player voices and passion by leveraging the deep relationships it has with poker players, which is highlighted by its unique Player Advisory Board representing all facets of the game. Moreover, PokerOrg’s staff has an extensive network of sources built up over a combined 100 years of poker experience.
The agreement will ensure that every WSOP Circuit event is treated like an exciting sports event for players in each local area while elevating the coverage to national and international audiences across WSOP .COM, Poker .Org and their collective social media channels. PokerOrg will bring much of the traditional coverage that players expect, including enhanced side event news, highlights of big hands, details of exciting action and lots of player personality posts.
“Poker boom 2.0 is in full swing and we’re proud the WSOP Circuit has evolved into the most played tournament series in the world”, said Ty Stewart, Executive Director of the World Series of Poker. “We’ve heard our players loud and clear and they want more coverage and better coverage for WSOP Circuit events. PokerOrg has put together an all-star team and impressed us with their innovative plans to cover live events. We’re thrilled PokerOrg has made the commitment to become the primary media partner of the WSOP Circuit.”
PokerNews, the PokerStars-owned news outlet, historically provided WSOP Circuit reporting, but the tour has been without a media partner since PokerNews ended its coverage of the events in 2020.
PokerOrg is a fast-growing poker news site and became a poker player favorite during this year’s record-breaking WSOP at the Paris & Horseshoe in Las Vegas. The WSOP Circuit season starts with Choctaw Durant in Oklahoma from July 17 – 30, swiftly moves on to Harrah’s Cherokee in North Carolina from August 3-14, and leads up to the WSOP series in Las Vegas next summer.
“WSOP Circuit players have been underserved in media coverage for too long and PokerOrg is eager to bring a fresh new approach to live poker coverage,” said Eric Hollreiser, CEO of PokerOrg. “The WSOP Circuit Tour represents the largest community of poker players on the planet and they deserve dedicated independent media coverage that celebrates the dramatic hero calls, empathizes with the bad beats and raises the profiles of the many characters that represent the diversity of poker players at these events. Our player-focused, social-media style of reporting will give the players, the venues and the WSOP tons of opportunities to feature the skills, talents and personalities that make poker the most popular mind sport in the world.”
