PokerStars' Million Dollar TV Challenge

PokerStars' Million Dollar TV Challenge

Thursday, 20 August 2009

Full Tilt Poker’s Face the Ace received lacklustre ratings and lukewarm reviews from TV audiences and critics as well as poker players. However, PokerStars have responded to this with a million-dollar programme of their own to debut on Fox TV.

The PokerStars Million Dollar Challenge features one lucky player who gets to play Daniel Negreanu heads-up for one million dollars on Fox. However, this has a slightly different format to Face the Ace, which features several lucky players who get to play a selection of pros for $100,000 or more on TV.

However, attempts to get on this show will not be solely refined to skill at the virtual felt. Firstly, you need to have a top 10 finish in one of the daily Million Dollar Challenge freerolls on PokerStars. After this, however, you are required to produce a two-minute video explaining why you should be the one to face down Negreanu.

The selected player then receives heads-up training against celebrities and other professional players – mostly team PokerStars pros. Finally, Daniel himself will coach the player before the $1m game.

You can find out more about how to take on Negreanu at PokerStars.
