With an impressive roster of pros set to line up for the $100,000+ tournament series the organisers needed some heavyweight commentators and they don’t come much more qualified than Ali Nejad and Olivier Busquet.

His dulcet tones and colourful commentary will serve as the perfect complement to Busquet’s technical insights. Indeed, known as one of the best heads-up sit & go players in the world, Busquet has developed a reputation as an accomplished commentator over the last few years. Both Nejad and Busquet will join Lynn Gilmartin who will also be present at every Alpha8 event gathering interviews and back-stage gossip from the pros. The first Alpha8 tournament kicks off on August 26 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, and the episodes will to air on FOX Sports 1 in early 2014.
