Face the Ace, New Poker Reality Show, to Air on NBC This August

Poker player Jamie-Lynn Sigler co-starred on The Sopranos with Face the Ace host Steve Schirripa.

This one could end up being interesting.

Poker Productions, the team responsible for bringing you Poker After Dark, is launching another Full Tilt underwritten TV show, Face the Ace.

Hosted by former Las Vegas VIP host and The Sopranos star Steve Schirripa, Face the Ace will pit amatuers against pros in a gameshow like format that's sort of like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire meets some other gameshow. From one of the many sites that picked up the story

The game is set up with four professional poker players hidden behind smoky windows. The contestant chooses a window, the poker player is revealed, and then the two face off in a game of heads-up no limit Hold'Em. If the contestant wins, he or she can then walk away with his or her winnings, or choose another window to continue. Contestants can win a million by beating three consecutive pros, but if a game is lost then the prize money is zilch.

The show will air Saturday afternoons on NBC.

Did this show tank and get pulled off the air? I never heard a peep about it, so I'm assuming yes, it did.


theirs no way to look good on this cause if you beat the pro you got lucky and if you lose its cause you suck. wait is jamie gold the only contestent?


Could be interesting. Won't know til we see a couple episodes, but I like the format. Could help keep poker popular amongst the non-hardcores by presenting it in a different format.

PS : Your greasy haircut sucks, Todd Brunson.

Todd Brunson

This show will suck.

Face The Ace

The show will debut in primetime.

It's much more like Deal Or No Deal than Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.
