  • PokerStars getting ready for new television show

    Monday, March 29th, 2010 by t2admin

High stakes poker games are some of the most exciting games to watch and follow, so it is no wonder that the television show High Stakes Poker is so popular on the GSN network. But the show may soon find its popularity diminishing as PokerStars is preparing to launch their own high stakes poker show called The Big Game.

The Big Game will have big name pros competing, large buy-ins and all the makings of a hit poker show. The show will air on the FOX network and be called the PokerStars Big Game. The show will feature a table of poker pros playing no limit hold’em with $200/$400 blinds and a minimum buy-in of $100,000.

PokerStars has yet to announce the lineup for the shows as well as who will be hosting and other details but it seems as though Daniel Negreanu is behind the marketing of the show and the site has enough poker pros to create shows for decades.

So the show will feature poker pros and one online qualifier. The online qualifier will have their $100k buy-in staked by PokerStars and if the player wins they will get to keep their winnings. The qualifier will be called Loose Cannon and will be chosen in a two step process.

Players will first compete in a series of free rolls which are located in the lobby as Big Game qualifiers. The top 200 players will then be eligible to send in a casting video to PokerStars. PokerStars will then choose one player to go to Vegas and participate on the show.

Round one qualifier will take place from March 26th to June 25th and no specific dates have been released on the Final Round qualifiers. A timeline for the casting call has also not been released. More information will be released by PokerStars as the show gets closer to fruition.
