Miami, FL (PRWEB) February 12, 2008
Online poker site UltimateBet.net today announced that its much talked about reality poker series, Best Damn Poker Show, will begin airing on Monday, February 11th at 9pm, 11pm and 12:30am local time on Fox Sports Net. The ultimate poker reality series follows 18 poker players on two teams led by world poker champions Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke as they battle it out over seven weeks. More than just money is at stake in this televised battle. Egos are on the line as the two poker pros try to prove who's the better poker professor.
Despite the endless heads-up Texas Hold'em battles between Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke at UltimateBet.net's online poker tables, it's unlikely that the age-old debate regarding which pro is the better poker player will ever be settled. Best Damn Poker Show aims to discover who can better teach the game and mold ordinary poker players into champions.
Online poker players at UltimateBet.net fought for a spot in the L.A. audition process by creating and submitting an audition video that demonstrated why they deserved to be on the innovative poker reality series. The online poker site also invited Texas Hold'em fans to take part in a series of qualifiers where spots in the televised audition process were up for grabs.
Phil Hellmuth and Annie Duke each handpicked nine players from a field of 36 to join their team. The 18 selected players were shipped to the luxurious Pechanga Resort and Casino in California to be a part of the seven-week series.
Best Damn Poker Show also features celebrities from the entertainment and poker worlds including Scott Ian from Anthrax, Sully Erna from Godsmack, and actors Jennifer Tilley, Patrick Warburton and Miguel Nunez. UltimateBet.net's very own P0ker H0 and Shawn Rice manage Team Hellmuth and Team Duke respectively on the series.
Online poker players looking for their own shot at poker superstardom don't have to wait long. The audition process for season 2 of the Best Damn Poker Show begins soon at UltimateBet.net.
