Move over Joe Millionaire. The Sands Casino Hotel on
Thursday, November 27, will also be the players’ place to watch the world’s
best poker players compete to win one million dollars on national television.

Fox Sports Net will broadcast the Million Dollar Deal: Showdown
At The Sands Poker Tournament
on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 27 from
12:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. and again at 8 p.m. until 2 a.m.

Viewers will not only catch all the card playing action
center stage in the tournament, but will also get an up-close look at the
personalities that make the game so exciting.

In a bold and inventive move, Fox Sports Net will follow the
players throughout the tournament, catching the drama outside of the gaming area
as well as within.

“Somebody’s going to walk out of the Sands a
millionaire,” said Tom Davis, president of Sands Casino Hotel. “From
avid poker players to legends of the games, like Phil Ivey, Cyndy Violete, Linda
Johnson and Jim Miller, the best players the game has to offer are flocking to
compete in the most exciting poker event in the nation. And, even more exciting
