Dublin, Ireland (PRWEB) September 29, 2008
It's the final week 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 survived to claim the World Series of Poker seat.
Last week we saw the final two contestants play head-to-head in a final that put all they've learnt to the test. This week we catch up with them six months after the challenge and find out how they've been fairing on the internet and if they've managed to make money without the Devilfish's tuition.
We discover which rules most improved their play and how they've applied them to making money on the internet. We also meet one of the most groundbreaking poker companies on the internet which is amassing a huge army of poker players that makes them money day and night.
We also hear some of the wild and hilarious "proposition bets" that poker players make when the stress of high stakes poker becomes too much, including one in which a man stands to lose $350,000 if he doesn't lose weight each month for the next three years.
