We may have seen the end of Vic, Bob, Ulrika and Angelos on the UK version of Shooting Stars but the American poker version is still very much up and running.
The World Poker Tour has announced that this year's WPT Bay 101 Shooting Stars championship will return on 5 March 2012 and confirmed that there will be a $5,000 bounty on 49 of the participants.As expected, the list of bounties reads like a who's who of tournament poker and includes Jonathan Duhamel, Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier and Erik Seidel. PokerStars pro Liv Boeree has been named as one of the bounties, as has fellow Brit Chris Moorman. The full list of Shooting Stars can be seen below.Alan Sternberg won last year's WPT Shooting Stars event, pocketing $1,039,000 after beating a final table that included Mike Sexton, Mike Matusow and Vivek Rajkumar.Allen BariLiv BoereeTodd BrunsonAllen CunninghamFreddy DeebJonathan DuhamelAntonio EsfandiariWill FaillaAndy FrankenbergerChau GiangMatt GiannettiBarry GreensteinBertrand GrospellierTony “G” GuogaJoe HachemChristian HarderJennifer HarmanPhil HellmuthMaria HoLinda JohnsonJohn JuandaEugene KatchalovPhil LaakBen LambNam LeKathy LiebertErick LindgrenMike MatusowJason MercierMichael MizrachiChris MoormanDaniel NegreanuMen NguyenScotty NguyenDwyte PilgrimMarvin RettenmaierDavid “Chino” RheemErik SeidelScott SeiverMike SextonGavin SmithFabrice SoulierSam SteinAlan Sternberg – Reigning ChampionJoe TehanJennifer TillyYevgeniy TimoshenkoJC TranDavid Williams
