Full Tilt Million Dollar Cash Game

by , Feb 2, 2010 | 1:02 pm

So little gets me excited about poker these days … unless, of course, it includes Pot-Limit Omaha or somebody getting sued/arrested. (C’mon HSP, can we just get one episode of PLO? Just to hear Gabe Kaplan talking about it. Promise not to sue you if you use this idea.)

But I stumbled across this last night — a game I read about on the internet back when it was being recorded (I believe in September). It’s just a regular-ole episode (Season 4 Ep. 3). But still much more exciting on video than anything I read about online, and way better than the Poker Stars Million-Dollar Challenge, not to mention Face the Ace:

    Televised poker in the UK has really stepped up the game recently. The recently concluded Million Dollar Cash Game, the Durrrr Million Dollar Challenge that started airing yesterday, the PKR Heads-Up Grand Slam, and the Party Poker World Open have produced some quality poker for those waiting for High Stakes Poker to start soon.

    any idea what kinda ratings these shows are drawing. i found this one intereting, because it obviously appeals to the wonkiest poker geeks out there, but the explanation of blinds and the button suggest they are doing this for the total poker newbies/novices.

    No idea, but the shows do usually start around 10pm-midnight GMT, on the lower Sky Sports networks. The UK has had plenty of 6-person tournaments with the same format for years (100k in chips, starting at 1k/2k). The past few months, Barry Hearn and the folks over at Matchroom Sports decided to give players 300k in chips and it’s improved the quality of the tournaments, as well as making each show 2 hours long.

    anyone associated with full tilt poker (owners) should lose everything they have ever had in there entire life including there family.
