Bravo PR: Still MORE celebrity poker
TWENTY-FIVE HOLLYWOOD STARS STACK THEIR CHIPS AGAINST ONE ANOTHER IN
BRAVO'S "CELEBRITY POKER SHOWDOWN"
HOSTED BY KEVIN POLLAK

BEN AFFLECK, HANK AZARIA, DON CHEADLE, DAVID CROSS, PETER FACINELLI, CARRIE FISHER, TOM GREEN, ALLISON JANNEY, RON LIVINGSTON, EMILY PROCTER, MIMI ROGERS, PAUL RUDD, RICHARD SCHIFF, DAVID SCHWIMMER, MARTIN SHEEN, SCOTT STAPP, AND NICOLE SULLIVAN AMONG THE STARS CONTENDING FOR THE QUARTER-MILLION DOLLAR CHARITY PRIZE POOL.

Filmed recently before a live audience at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, each episode of "Celebrity Poker Showdown" will feature five celebrities competing against each other for a piece of the $250,000 prize pool in a game of No Limit Texas Holdem poker for the charity of their choice. Each week a new crop of stars will take to the table to challenge their peers. The winner from each weeks game will go on to compete in the championship final sixth episode. Viewers will have the inside track on the hands the different players are holding via hidden cameras. They will also be able to hear from the eliminated players, who will watch the remainder of their respective matches from the 'Losers Lounge,' via closed circuit television.

Rather more "celebrity" than Celebrity Poker Club, but will be interesting to see whether it makes the programme more watchable. I believe its being shown on Bravo in the U.S. so it should only be a matter of time before its on Bravo here.
