Special Guests Help Poker2Nite Serve up Inside Scoop on Growing Sports to Poker Crossover
April 7, 2010 (CAP PR Wire) — UB.net’s popular poker news television series continues on Wednesday, April 7th at 11pm EDT on the Versus Network. Episode six of Poker2Nite presents the week that was, plus what’s hot and what’s not in the world of online and live poker across the globe.
The Poker2Nite line-up for the post holiday weekend installment serves up special guests Dr. Jerry Buss of L.A. Lakers fame, and UFC ring announcer Bruce Buffer, better known in the explosive world of Mixed Martial Arts as the “veteran Voice of the Octagon”; plus this week’s Girls of Poker feature shines the spotlight on UK poker babe and UB’s very own Liv Boeree.
Tune in to play houseguest as iconic Lakers owner, Dr. Buss, invites Poker2Nite inside the California mansion he calls home for an exclusive glimpse of how Basketball’s newest NBA ‘Hall of Famer’ rolls. The 77 year-old talks B-ball, his beloved NBA defending championship team, and why he’s happily devoting more of his time to the competitive game of poker.
In-studio, Bruce Buffer faces ‘Seebs’ and Huff in another riotous edition of regular Poker2Nite segment titled “On the Clock”. Don’t miss the co-anchors fire a series of 12 turbo-charged random and relevant questions across 60 seconds at Buffer, a big time poker player in his own right. The veritable household name amongst UFC fans sticks around long enough to discuss the growing appeal of poker amongst UFC fighters, to preview the upcoming UFC 112 card in Abu Dhabi, and to have some fun attempting to school Sebok with some of his smooth signature moves.
Also featured is a rocking meet with Team UB Pro player Liv Boeree. It’s compelling viewing in this Wednesday’s rollout of the Girls in Poker spot with Boeree, as she debuts some hot girl-on-guitar action, while the Poker2Nite team chat with her on location at the Studio at the Palms in Sin City.
