May is another big month on partypoker TV. Whether you want major sports stars battling it out at the felt, highlights of the best of the best clashing at MILLIONS Barcelona, or the always dramatic The Big Game, we’ve got a programme for you.
What have sporting legends Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor, Chris Kamara, Steve Davis, Matt Dawson, and Ray Parlour and Kara Scott all got in common? That they all appeared in the ludicrously entertaining partypoker.com Sports Stars Challenge III. The show features eight episodes, with the sports stars first split into heats based on which sport they played. The winners all progressed through to the Final Table, and it was brilliantly watchable TV throughout.
The first episode features lucky fans who had won satellites to compete in the event, Episode 2 included darts legends like Taylor and Michael Van Gerwen, Episode 3 featured sports presenters and pundits including Kamara and Scott, before the fourth episode saw former cricketers trying to hit the competition for six. Episode 5 had snooker legends, Episode 6 saw rugby stars tackling each other at the felt, and Episode 7 saw football's finest compete, before the Grand Final in Episode 8. In May, all eight episodes will be aired on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays until the 24th May.
Another exciting addition to the May schedule will be the finale of The Big Game V, which will first air on Monday 2nd at 23:00. Episodes 17, 18, 19 and 20 bring the show to an exciting conclusion, and they will be shown on the 2nd, 4th and 6th. The Big Game V was classic poker entertainment, as huge personalities like Tony G, Annette Obrestad, Dave "Viffer" Peat, Luke Schwartz, Dave "Devilfish" Ulliott, Jennifer Tilly, Sam Trickett and Mike Matusow clashed in a mammoth 48-hour cash game format.
Then it's the turn of the Big Game VI to take centre stage, with all 20 episodes being shown two a day on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays starting on May 7th. The Montesino Casino in Vienna hosted the Big Game VI, which included the classic 48-hour cash game format.
The event gave established pros, plucky amateurs and hopeful locals alike their shot at the big game. Phil “Unabomber” Laak was the only player to play the entire 48 hours, quite some accomplishment in a line-up that included Eugene Katchalov, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Daniel “Jungleman” Cates, Sam Trickett, Alec Torelli, Ignat “0human0” Liviu and Iliodorous Kamatakis. The blinds started at €25/€50 with an optional straddle. Episode 1 from Season Seven of the Big Game from Barcelona will air on the 30th May ahead of extended coverage in June.
Also airing later in May will be Cash Game from Kings, a No Limit Hold’Em and Omaha no holds barred ring game featuring some of the best players in the game battling it out for big money at the famous King’s Casino Europe in Rozvadov. Episodes 1 and 2 will be shown on the channel on the 28th, with the Omaha episode on the 25th. We’ve also got the Phil Hellmuth Invitational on Friday 25th and Sunday 27th, with two episodes shown back to back. This prestigious invite-only cash game was hosted by the legendary fourteen-time bracelet winner Hellmuth live from the King’s Casino.
Finally, we'll have a two-hour highlights show of the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS Grand Final Barcelona, filmed just in April as the first season of the MILLIONS tour came to it's incredible conclusion. You can catch that on Saturday 26th, Tuesday 29th or Thursday 31st. It's an absolute must-see!
