The Big Game is back
You've been asking for it, we've been waiting for it, and now the PokerStars Big Game is back.
After a short hiatus, the Big Game hit the small screen again this week with a brand new Loose Cannon.
For the big money game, PokerStars staked qualifier Troy Howard $100,000. Now, its up to him to turn that into something. He has five very important reasons to do so.
The 29-year-old music producer from Niagara Falls, NY is...wait for it...the father of five children.
A big score on the BIg Game could end up meaning a lot for those kids.
"It would change their life," Howard said. "They would have something I never had."
For now, Howard says he's taking it in stride and isn't let any feelings of nervousness get in the way.
"It feels like poker," Howard said. It's what I love. It's what I do."
