Apparently undeterred by the ratings flop that was the first two weeks of Full Tilt Poker’s “Face the Ace”, is running their own promotion on Fox, where someone will play Daniel Negreanu for $1,000,000.

The Million Dollar Challenge doesn’t have a ring to it like Face the Ace did, but it has a similar format: Finish in the top 10 in one of several freerolls held over the next few months on, then submit a two-minute audition tape with two of your buddies (who also will travel with the winner to the taping to offer support), and will select 21 winning entries to appear on one of 4 programs on Fox which are also non-NFL doubleheader days: October 11 and 18, November 22, December 13 with the grand final being shown on December 27 at 4pm.
