HEADLINE: High-Stakes Poker Show Offers Amateur Qualifiers

Even Non-Pros Can Play High-Stakes Cash Games on TV in the Ultimate Poker Challenge's Cash Poker.

For those of you who have dreamed of playing poker on national TV, the Ultimate Poker Challenge is giving you your chance. The UPC’s new show, Cash Poker, is the first televised high-stakes cash game to offer Internet satellite entries, and the show guarantees that every player will be seen on TV.

Cash Poker, held at Binion’s Hotel and Casino in Downtown Las Vegas, pits 18 players (not including alternates) against each other in a $25,000-$100,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em cash game. Rebuys of at least $10,000 are also allowed at any time. Players can cash out and leave at any point after at least four hours of play — or, of course, if they lose.

With such a large buy-in, the events are already attracting some big names in poker, including Kenna James, Chad Brown, Tex Barch, Robert Williamson III, Mike Matusow, Cyndy Violette, Doyle Brunson, Dan Harrington, David Williams, and others.

Along with the poker notables, one seat per table is reserved for Internet qualifiers. Players will be able to qualify for the seat via satellite tournaments on Absolute Poker, although these satellites had not yet begun to run at the time this was written.

Those interested in signing up with Absolute Poker to take advantage of the qualifiers can do so by clicking here.

Binion’s also holds live-poker satellites for entry into Cash Poker. The satellites have a $500 buy-in (with $50 entry fee) and are winner-take-all events. The next satellites are scheduled to run on March 14 and April 4, both at 4 p.m. PT. Cash Poker is not an invitational event, so anyone can register to play through satellite entry or direct buy-in.

More information about the Binion’s satellites can be found by calling 800-622-6468. People seeking information about buying in directly to Cash Poker, or about the show in general, can click here.

The TV schedule for the show and the channel that it airs on varies widely on a city-by-city basis. For show times in your area, please click here.
