After the announcement by PokerStars in regards to launching a poker tv show going under the name “Big Game”, Full Tilt Poker follows up by announcing the launch of its own version o a poker TV show going under the name “The Poker Lounge”.

The only confirmed entries so far employed are those of Phil Ivey and Gus Hansen. Ivey came to know the final table of the 2009 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event and is a leading player in prize money in tournaments of all time. Hansen is one of the 3 players who have won three titles World Poker Tour (WPT). Needless to say competition will be very intense. Each “Poker Lounge” show will have a $ 20,000 buy in with the winner receiving the entire prize money of $ 120,000. Qualifiers for “The Poker Lounge” will be starting on April 4th at Full Tilt Poker and will run through July 4th.
