Poker Den: Big Game II Returns Poker Den: Big Game II Returns

Tuesday, 29 January 2008

Tomorrow night sees the return of the Poker Den: Big Game II to UK television. The $20,000 buy in cash game was filmed over a continuous 24 hour period in London last year by Barry Hearn’s Matchroom Sports, and the line up is as tantalising as the first edition of the show.

This time around, UK viewers will be treated to Dave “The Devilfish” Ulliott, Tony G, Roland De Wolfe, Todd Brunson, Chris ‘Jesus’ Ferguson, Robert Williamson III, Brian ‘sbrugby’ Townsend, Jamie Gold, Thomas Bihl, and Hoyt Corkins.

Jessie ‘The Voice of Poker’ May will be returning to thecommentary booth for the session, and apparently the action hots uppretty quick.

A spokesman for PartyPoker said, “The blinds started low but it took just ten minutes for the first $20,000 pot to be won. The stakes were high and tempers were frayed as the big guns flexed their egos in London’s most notorious back street venue.”

Meanwhile, in another PartyPoker sponsored event, Beverly Pace won the PartyPoker Women’s World Open, netting herself $50,000 first prize in the process.

“I’m very happy,” said Pace. “This is my first big win and I intend to give myself a bankroll to play more tournaments for bigger stakes in the near future” Pace added, “Women’s tournaments are good for getting more ladies into the game. The standard is no different to a mixed sex game but they do encourage some to come forward who wouldn’t do otherwise.”
