2010 World Series of Poker Ratings

 

Participation may have been up but ESPN’s 2010 World Series of Poker ratings have taken a hit from this time last year, our friends at Cake Poker noted on Tuesday.

Cake Poker notes: “They're not down a lot, but the numbers have taken a bit of a hit. Things started off well, with 15% more people tuning in to the Player's Championship compared to last year. But that's about it for the good news. The bad news is that overall ratings for the rest of the coverage is running about 16% lower than last year.”

737,000 viewers have tuned in thus far per episode on average, compared to 869,000 last year.

Cake is home to some of the biggest stars via their own online poker rooms, Doyle Brunson and Phil Laak, in addition to a host of big name players who represent the new Cake Poker online card room, Victory Poker.

The November final table will air on time delay.
