st at 9pm ET and will place contestants in front of four smoked-glass doors, each one conceals an “Ace” in the form of a professional poker player. The contestant must choose a door and play the pro behind it in a heads up match. If he loses it is game over, however if he wins he can decide whether he wants to keep the money and run or risk his winnings and play against another “Ace” for a chance to win even more prize money.
If the contestant loses he goes home with nothing, however if he can beat three poker “Aces” he will walk away with a very juicy $1 million dollars in cash! It will not be easy though with all of the pros being handpicked from the Full Tilt stables which include the likes of poker great Phil Ivey.
Want to be a contestant? Well good news! The “Peacock” Network and Full Tilt Poker are teaming up to give you a chance to take part! Full Tilt will be holding qualifying tournaments with online qualifiers being flown to Las Vegas for the chance to be selected as a contestant and compete on “Face The Ace”.
