ESPN presents a special one-hour season preview show with memorable moments from last season and a look ahead to the 41st year of the World Series of Poker, presented by Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, Tuesday, July 20, at 8 p.m. ET. 

Lon McEachern and Norman Chad return as co-hosts for the record 28 hours of Main Event coverage, and Chad goes in depth with 2009 winner Joe Cada, who at 21 became the youngest world champion, cashing in more than $8.5 million. 

Other features in the preview show include:

  • McEachern will moderate four different roundtable discussions with the game’s best players, featuring a “Bracelet Race” analysis with 11-time bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth and 10-time bracelet winner Doyle Brunson. Past champions Dan Harrington, Scotty Nguyen, Chris Ferguson and Chris Moneymaker will also weigh in on how play has changed throughout the years.
  • The remarkable year of the Shulman family is reviewed, including Final table appearances by father and son, Barry in the World Series of Poker Europe and Jeff in the November Nine WSOP in Las Vegas.
  • Some of poker’s most impressive up-and-comers, Tom Dwan, Scott Seiver and Isaac Haxton, give their thoughts on age in poker and live versus online play.
  • Past bracelet winners Jennifer Harman, Daniel Negreanu and Erick Lindgren forecast the 2010 series.

Fans will also get a taste of the tournaments to watch beginning with the season-opening $50k Poker Players Championship on July 27, the Tournament of Champions on Aug. 3, and the Main Event Aug. 10-Nov. 9.
