Pro Poker Tour to Feature 250 Poker All-Stars on Travel Channel

From the creators of the widely successful World Poker Tour comes another action packed brand new series that will showcase the best of the best in the poker world. The new creation, Professional Poker Tour (PPT) will be shown on the Travel Channel starting July 5 at 9 pm. Poker fans would be treated to one quality poker ride after another as they tune in week after week.

The premier season will pack 24 weeks of solid poker punch that will surely bring poker television to new heights starting July 5. The show will be bringing together the greats from previous various tournaments, including champions from the WORLD POKER TOUR (WPT), World Series of Poker, and European poker tournaments.

The new series would be featuring 250 of the brightest stars in the poker circuit including Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, Johnny Chan, Annie Duke, Phil Hellmuth, Gus Hansen, Men "The Master" Nguyen, Chris Moneymaker, Antonio Esfandiari, Bobby Baldwin, Daniel Negreanu, Jennifer Harman, David "Devilfish" Ulliott, Samy Farha, Mel Judah, Scotty Nguyen, Erick Lindgren, Phil "The Unabomber" Laak, Huck Seed, Tom McEvoy, Layne Flack, Carlos Mortensen, Chip Reese, Erik Seidel, Lyle Berman, Kathy Liebert, T.J. Cloutier, and Linda Johnson.

Not a single important moment will be missed as viewers will be treated to non-stop tournament action from start to finish, with a focus on one featured table for every day of the Professional Poker Tour. But the action swivels to a different high every time a participant goes all-in anywhere in the room. The addition of this feature is sure to add excitement to an already exhilarating game. As much as 15 tables will be individually featured with this all-in action all the way through the preliminary round. Prepare the munchies an hour ahead, you wouldn't want to miss a second of this!

Five free-roll tournaments will be included in the tour, totaling a whopping $2.5 million in prize money from Professional poker Tour. Amateurs and seasoned veterans alike will go head to head in four parts of heated tournament play that will culminate in one championship round, aptly called The Final Table. The Final Table is unique in concept, as the tour players are given a 90 second deadline in making their decision, otherwise forcibly surrendering their hand. A 'time bank allowance' option is available to the players, a move that will extend the 90 seconds that can be used only once (in very tight situations surely) in the Final Table Play.
