How to Become a Poker Millionaire is a new poker reality show going on air on ITV Wales this week. The centerpiece of the show will be the poker pro Dave ‘The Devilfish’ Ulliott. Dave will be training four poker amateurs. Each week one player will be eliminated. The winner will get a free seat to the WSOP 2009 Main Event.
The excitement will be provided by popular poker pros, who will provide additional tips to the players and generally mingle with them. The names of these players have not been revealed but it is said that they have together won 34 WSOP bracelets and over $100 million. According to Ulliott the participants and the viewers will imbibe the “tricks of the high-stakes poker trade” in a month that normally takes years to learn. He also said that the show would have the laughter and tears that are a part of any reality show.
How to Become a Poker Millionaire should later run on Pokertube and on the rest of ITV as well.
