Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) September 10, 2008
It's week two of the "How to Become a Poker Millionaire" challenge where irreverant UK poker legend Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott takes four losing poker players and tries to turn them into winners. But only one will survive and claim the World Series of Poker seat.
Last week the contestants were tested on their natural abilities to see if they were lucky, smart and had strong minds. This week, the contestants are going online for the first time to play for real cash. The Devilfish teaches them poker "tells" which are complex observations that let players know what cards their opponents are holding, and take a lifetime to master. Meanwhile, some of the contestants are struggling with the Devilfish's rules. And the first player is eliminated from the competition.
Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott is the star of the new five-part series "How to Become a Poker Millionaire" which airs each Thursday on ITV at 10.35 p.m. SKY viewers in the UK and Ireland can visit DevilfishPokerSchool.com for a simple guide to tuning their SKY box to receive ITV Wales.
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.
Ulliott is the UK's most successful all-time tournament poker player with millions of dollars of winnings under his belt as well as WSOP and World Poker Tour titles to his name.
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.
