Five-part series follows the Devilfish as he trains four losing poker players, only one of whom will win a seat at the World Series of Poker; the show premiers Thursday Sept. 4 on ITV Wales.

UK poker legend Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott is the star of a new five-part series "How to Become a Poker Millionaire" which premieres on ITV Wales this Thursday Sept. 4, 2008 at 10.35 p.m. The 30-minute shows take four losing poker players and gives them an intensive month of training by the Devilfish.

Each week one of Devilfish's novices is eliminated and at the end of the series the winner receives a seat at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas.

The first show follows Devilfish as he meets the players and begins to put them through their paces. Throughout the series viewers will be treated to interviews with Devilfish's friends -- some of the top poker players in the world -- who have won 34 WSOP bracelets and over $100 million dollars between them.

Ulliott, who has millions of dollars of tournament winnings under his own belt as well as WSOP and World Poker Tour titles to his name, said, "Poker players won't have seen anything like this before. It was a real boot camp for the participants and I took no prisoners. There's laughter and tears, good poker and bad poker, and viewers will get to learn many of the tricks of the high-stakes poker trade which took me years and a lot of money to learn."

The series is produced by John Giwa-Amu and Caradog James of Red & Black Films who are building on their seven years industry experience and BAFTA success with one of the most innovative poker TV shows ever produced.
