Last week the first round matchups have been announced for the second edition of the King of the Hill on Poker Night in America. This televised, special mini heads-up tournament consists of only four players, each required to shell out a $50,000 buy-in, and the emerging winner is going to take all the pot.
The winner-take-all event features defending champion Phil Hellmuth, whose opponent is going to be Parker "Tonkaaaa" Talbot, while on the other side, it's Shaun Deeb versus Olivier Busquet.
The winners from the above matchups will then meet again the very next day to face each other and the winning champ will take home $200,000!
On the other hand, Doug Polk, who participated in the first King of the Hill event, will not be participating in the matches this time, but instead will be hosting the livestreamed show on the Poker Night in America Twitch channel.
Poker Night in America's King of the Hill II tournament is scheduled on October 6 Friday at the Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
