Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) September 17, 2008
It's week three of the "How to Become a Poker Millionaire" challenge where 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 played online for real cash for the first time. Devilfish introduced them to poker "tells" and one of the contestants struggled with the rules.
This week we see the contestants are now playing nine hours of online poker a week under the Devilfish's watchful eye. We discover how going on 'tilt' can make players lose a fortune and how players can avoid it. Devilfish tries to prove how dangerous it is to play poker while drunk as the contestants drink and play under controlled supervision and one of the contestants is sent home for breaking the rules.
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. Fans can also watch online playback of the show at http://www.itvlocal.com/wales/programmes/.
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.
