Million Dollar Challenge hits screens Sunday
They qualified on PokerStars. They produced their own casting video. Now, they are facing off against Daniel Negreanu for a chance to win a million bucks.
Starting this Sunday on the American FOX network, the PokerStars Million Dollar Challenge will hit the small screen at 4:30pm ET.
If you're not familiar with how it works, it's a fairly interesting new format. After the contestants made it to the TV studio, they played against celebrity contestants like Barry Greenstein, Chris Moneymaker, and Vanessa Rousso. Along the way, Negreanu coached them. If the players won, they could keep their money or face off against Kid Poker himself for $100,000. And if they won there...a chance to play for $1 million.
Here's what it looked like.
