ESPN Signs a New Seven-Year Contract with the World Series of Poker

That puts the two in bed together through 2018. While not forever, I think in TV terms that really is a remarkably long deal. And yet it’s an interesting break point, too … with the contract expiring just before the 50th Anniversary of the WSOP.

    Guess the NBC schmoozing with Pollack during the National Heads-Up was all for naught.

    Or was it? I get a sense that Pollack knows more about playing poker than he lets on.

    I hope they sign Lon and Norman to 7 year extensions as well.
