Hi

We had to wait on the announcement until after Harrahs/ESPN had issued their press release, but these events will be available to watch exclusively via PKR for anyone outside of the US.

For US based viewers, they will be running on ESPN360 or Bluff.

We'll be announcing this later today so more details to follow shortly.

Best,
Simon @ PKR
