The duo, which appeared on ESPN’s most recent coverage of the NAPT and are the regular hosts for the World Series of Poker (WSOP), will instead take a hiatus. In their stead, James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton will provide commentary. Along with Chris Rose, Stapleton is the host of the PokerStars-backed “Big Game,” which airs on Fox in late nights.
