PokerStars introduces new televised cash game

Posted on 31 March 2010 by "T".

Soon there will be a new cash game to watch on TV. The cash game is brought to you by PokerStars who also gives its players a unique chance to qualify online for just a few dollars and get staked in the cash game and play with pros from all over the globe. The minimum buy-in for PokerStars televised cash game will be $100,000 and the blinds will be $200/$400. The only PokerStars Pro who has confirmed that he's taking part so far is Daniel Negreanu.

PokerStars has still not announced any date when the show will be aired, but most probably we don't have to wait more than a few months. We will have to wait and see if the new cash game will become as popular as the Million Dollar Challenge was.

Negreanu is playing? So we will see a lot of quads for his opponents. Blink

But it looks like Stars sees the need to counter the other televised cash games, usually sponsored by Party or Full Tilt, with a show of their own.

The online qualifier is free rolling.
It's pot limit pre flop and nl post..
If he (qualifier) wins he keeps the lot.. read Daniels blog.

Yea I red about it few days ago from Negreanus blog - ThE Loose Cannon - its going to be PL preflop and NL postflop, because the lucky online player will get to keep everything he wins, so when the session is about to end and the online player (loose cannon) has about 80k then he wants to shoot it all in (because he wants to win money over 100k he can keep), but he can only raise potsize Blink. Otherwise he would go all in every hand in the end maikng the game big donkfest lol.

I think its going to be really interesting, tho tbh I also think none of those online players will last until the end of the session above 100k Big Smile

This idea was probably conjured up by daniel so he can try and restore he reputation.

He plays so bad in High Stakes Poker, really really bad.

That could be a good one to see! Hope Negreanu will have more luck this time!
Will it be only PokerStars Pros or will there be other figures (Brunson, Ivey, Matusow...)? Spade

Unlucky for me, the tv channel where i use to see poker only passes scenes from 2005's WSOP. Think i will have to wait five more years to get access to that. Big Smile Maybe my cable service gets new poker channels...
