Poker-playing priest hits the small screen

Million-Dollar-Challenge-thumb.jpgWe've seen it happen too many players falling down on their knees to beseech the poker gods for some!

Although that scene plays itself out all over the world, we never really considered what would happen if one of them combined some of the most powerful possible forces. That is, what if one man combined his almighty God with one of poker's most respected deities?

That's exactly what this man did in the PokerStars Million Dollar Challenge.


The priest from South Carolina recently sat down to compete for a chance to win $1 million. Not only was able to quite officially bless the cards before the dealer got to work, but the holy man also had Daniel Negreanu sitting right beside him offering advice.

The episode aired last Sunday after the FOX NFL games . If you don't live in a place where you can see FOX, we've got the episode for you right here.

We won't tell you how it turns out, but either way, it's a great way to spend some time this afternoon. By the way, another episode of the Million Dollar Challenge airs at 4:30pm ET this Sunday, October 18.
