The Poker Million will have a slightly different look this year with Full Tilt Poker taking over the sponsorship reins from Ladbrokes.
The format for the event, which is televised on Sky Sports, will remain the same with the first six qualifiers for the 72-player event taking place from mid July. The remaining six-player heats plus the runner up turbo and the semi finals are set for October. Each of the 12 qualification heats will feature a qualifier from Full Tilt. Previous winners of the event include John Duthie, Jimmy White, Joe Beevers and last year’s champion Marty Smith. The 2009 event will say players competing for an estimated 1st prize of $600,000. Full Tilt pro Roland De Wolfe said, "Full Tilt and Poker Million together, it’s like my best mate marrying my sister. I am excited to see my pals from the States – edog, Phil Ivey and Chris Ferguson – the top boys from the best poker-only site in Britain’s finest knockout poker event, and after I’ve knocked them out I’ll take them around the sights of London."Eddie Hearn, Director of Matchroom Sport added “We are excited to take one of Europe’s most prestigious tournaments forward with Full Tilt Poker. There was no shortage of interest in capturing the title rights to this event and with Full Tilt’s impressive list of sponsored pros, viewers can expect the strongest Poker Million line-up yet.”
