Ultimate Poker a smash hit on TV

Dec 28, 2004 3:13 AM

The Ultimate Poker Challenge, the highest-rated nationally syndicated poker program on television, continues to reach more U.S. households than any other poker program on TV.

Each week, male, female, amateurs and pros alike, compete for a chance to play in the semi-finals and win a seat at the highly coveted final table of seven for a shot at the championship title, cash and prizes.

This isn’t a man’s sport either; women have also been dominant in The Ultimate Poker Challenge. Kathy Liebert beat out six male players the competitive sixth week of play. World-renowned players including Daniel Negreneau and Doyle Brunson, among many others, serve as guest co-hosts and provide personal commentary during each tournament.

The Ultimate Poker Challenge is produced by the International Poker Championship Series, Inc. and distributed by Passport Entertainment.

The Ultimate Poker Challenge airs weekly and is hosted by actor Chad Brown, a tournament poker player himself and entertainment reporter Brandi Williams serves as the Field Correspondent.
