  • PokerStars Teams With FOX to Start New Poker Show

    Monday, August 24th, 2009 by t2admin

PokerStars seems to be running out of ideas for ways to promote their online poker room as they seem to be just waiting for Full Tilt to do something then they do it too. First it was the Guinness book of world records attempt which they stole right back after Full Tilt took it away, for about a minute, and now PokerStars is following Full Tilt yet again by announcing a new poker show. The announcement came just weeks after Full Tilt launched their new poker show Face The Ace.

Full Tilt’s show airs on NBC and PokerStars is working with the FOX network. The new show is titled PokerStars Million Dollar Challenge and will be similar to the premise of the Full Tilt show. Players will earn their spot via PokerStars and take on pros of PokerStars as well as celebrities.

The slight difference in the PokerStars show is that players who take on the challenge can get advice and coaching from PokerStars pro Daniel Negreanu. So while the player may face Greg Raymer or Chris Moneymaker, Negreanu can help them in their attempt to move to the next round. But the players should beware that if they make the final round of play they will be facing Negreanu, the pro who has been helping them and watching them play the entire time.

Filming of the show is set to begin on September 30th and the show is scheduled tentatively for October 11th at 4pm. players who would like to be considered for the show must finish in the top ten of either two free rolls that take place daily on PokerStars and then submit a two minute video that explains why they should be the next contestant on the show. Players of the PokerStars show will also be able to bring along two friends for support like similar game shows on the market.
