In a huge announcement that could bring televised poker into a new era, ESPN has announced expanded coverage for the 2011 World Series of Poker, including 34 additional hours of Main Event coverage that will be broadcast nearly live, with a 30-minute delay mainly on ESPN 2.

The “live” hole-card coverage will be on a 30 minute delay, and will only be used for hands that make it to the flop –players hole cards will not be shown pre-flop.
