TAGs: Jess and BJ show, Poker Road Radio, WPT

The World Poker Tour announced that it has agreed to a deal with Poker Road Radio that will see Poker Road Radio’s (www.pokerroad.com) broadcasts become a fixture at most domestic WPT stops.

The deal already began at this week’s Los Angeles Poker Classic at Commerce Casino in Commerce, CA, and will be continuing at the Seminole Hard Rock Showdown (April 27-May 2, 2011) and again at the WPT World Championship (May 14-20, 2011), Poker Road Radio, will present three live episodes per tournament, featuring interviews with WPT talent, the biggest pros in the business and players who make the final tables of each event.

Poker professionals Joe Sebok and Barry Greenstein can take credit for the life that Poker Road Radio has taken on. The Poker Road Radio’s broadcast of WPT events will be sponsored by ClubWPT.com, which is a subscription and sweepstakes based online poker room that allows players to play legally for cash and prizes.

The Poker Road deal continues into Season X, as PRR will be on site for all events held in Los Angeles and Las Vegas, as well as the Borgata Poker Open, the Seminole Hard Rock Showdown and numerous other events.

The deal includes the “Jess and BJ Show,” which will get prime placement on PokerRoad.com and promotion within PRR broadcasts.
“This is an ideal partnership matching two of the best brands in poker,” said Steve Heller, World Poker Tour CEO.

“Live broadcasts will bring additional energy to WPT events and working with PRR will lead to a social media explosion for both companies.”
“PokerRoad is thrilled to be working with the World Poker Tour again,” said Court Harrington, Poker Road executive and show host.

“Over the years many of the classic episodes of Poker Road Radio have taken place around WPT tournaments and we eagerly look forward to working closely with the WPT to put out great content for poker fans around the globe.”
