The PokerStars.net Big Game, the best late night, cash game poker program on television, returns to FOX affiliates across the country on Monday, October 4, 2010.
This week, PokerStars.net stakes Loose Cannon Russell Harlow $100,000 and gives him the chance to take on an elite table of professional poker players. Whatever he wins over that $100,000, he keeps.
Harlow, a 39-year old delivery driver from Manchester, CT, has been playing poker for 20 years, often finding himself in local home games and in tournaments at Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods casinos. He’s hoping to win big money and buy himself a self-sufficient farm, raising and growing all of the food his family needs.
But to reach that goal, he’s going to have to outplay some of the best professional poker players in the business.
Joining Russell Harlow at this week’s table are:
* Antonio Esfandiari
* Tony G
* Phil Hellmuth
* Isaac Haxton
* And Team PokerStars.net Pro Jason Mercier
