Full Tilt Poker and NBC .. and You?

Full Tilt Poker along with NBC has announced online poker qualifiers for their new television show, Face the Ace. This is a huge opportunity for up and coming poker pro’s to get out there and create a some media buzz, get their faces on television and begin building a name for themselves.

For everyone else, heck it’s a chance to be on TV and win up to a million bucks! Full Tilt Players can register for the online qualifier tournaments in the Full Tilt Poker lobby. Winners will be given the opportunity to pit their heads up game against the skills of Full Tilt Poker Pro’s.

The best part of this, those same pro’s (such as are teaching at the all new Full Tilt Poker Academy, so not only is that available as a resource for poker players of all skill levels to work on their games, it’s a great way to study future opponents!

During the Face the Ace poker TV show, which is hosted by none other than Steve Schirripa of the Sorano’s contestants will be given a choice of four smoky glass doors, behind the doors, are Full Tilt Poker Pro’s, like Chris “Jesus” Ferguson, or Phil Ivey, Andy Bloch may be behind the doors.

Contestants might just find Mike “The Mouth” Matusow or the ever beautiful Jennifer Harman (Who had the opportunity to sit across from Ben Affleck at a poker table this week, up until she busted him out of the game) behind a Smokey glass door. Sort of reminds you of Hollywood Squares don’t it?

Once the player has chosen a door, and revealed their poker pro opponent, or ‘Ace’ the poker game begins; the player gets a shot at beating the pro poker player in a heads up match. Should the contestant succeed, they are given a choice, similar to the choice made on the game show Deal or No Deal…

The player can keep the money they’ve won, or they can face another poker pro, and risk it all, or win some more. Should the player win three consecutive match-ups, they win a cool million bucks.

Face the Ace begins filming in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 9th. The show then premieres on August 1st at 9pm ET on NBC.
