Shark Cage returns for Season 2

It's the poker series like no other. It puts players under a spotlight, others in a large purpose built cage, and pretty much everyone into positions of either glory or very public humiliation - all for our enjoyment.

So with that in mind we're delighted to announce that the PokerStars Shark Cage is back, with Season 2 starting tomorrow night*, or technically Wednesday morning at 00.10 UK time on Channel 4 - or 12.10am depending on how you like your time.


Heat one comes complete with some high profile shark bait. Team Pros Chris Moneymaker and Daniel Negreanu take their seats ready to take on golf pro Sergio Garcia. At stake will be a seat at the final or almost certain embarrassment of social media.

What's more there's a chance for viewers to win seats in a weekly freeroll by taking part with the Play Along App, which you can download here. You get to make the same decisions, just without having your mistake put on YouTube if it all goes wrong.

Subsequent shows will follow every week, with the likes of Phil Ivey, actor Don Cheadle, soccer legend Ronaldo, and star of Season one Miss Finland, aka Sara Chafek, all making appearances later in the season.

Here's a little taster:
