I love watching these kind of shows and i will be tuning in to see it. Some of the celebrities playing have all done well at world series events, so the standard should be high

So, after all, this will be a two-in-one tourney. Let's start shaking odds, i'll do the honour: who will sit against Daniel Negreanu in the final HU? Ok, i said it all? Statistics may say Esfandiari have bigger chances of taking this event, while Doyle will just be there for the pictures. Now we just have to try to know if any of the celebrities is passing their free time online having fun in some poker tables. If so, things can get funny in the end. Along their way to the celebrity chair in the final table, i bet this will be the most funny game to watch, as they will for sure make each other laugh a lot!

As I say very good end wing or passing Negreanu and Selbst as the etrellas will have to be very lucky.

This sounds like a good tournament to be watching,though the million just going to the winner sounds slightly unfair for the celebs.
Brad Garrett is a funny guy who is fun to watch.If I had to bet on this though I would have to go for a poker pro winning it all,maybe Hellmuth who always takes TV games seriously.

Hello my friends and fellow mobsters

This seems to be a very nice poker tournament with some celebrities that can play some good poker

Hopefully when the time comes will be a way to see this on a stream Worship

Like demodawggy says beeing at the same table with Hank Azaria will be a double challenge Big Smile Big Smile staying focused on poker and don´t crack out on the jokes

I think most people will have to watch the program on Youtube or the internet,we don't get much TV poker in the UK.
I wouldn't put my money on Selbst to win,a good player but I think the more experienced players seem to catch her bluffs far too easily.

Well this was played since almost a month and it premiered a couple days ago on NBCSN, I am not sure it was released or captured by anybody (I mean anybody who is pre'd or make torrent things from the TV) but maybe sooner or later we could see it as well here in Europe. Who would not want a peak on Don Cheadle or Norm Macdonald while playing cards?
