In the premier episode of Pro-Am Poker Equalizer, actress Cheryl Hines (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and controversial former baseball all-star Jose Canseco square off against Phil Ivey, Erick Lindgren, Daniel Negreanu, and John Juanda.
The last time Ivey and Lindgren faced each other was at FullTiltPoker.Net’s Pro Showdown. Lindgren won the tournament’s $600K top prize, while Ivey went home in last place and empty handed. No one likes making the walk of shame first, so this time, look for Ivey to try and send his Pro Showdown rival to the exit early. Negreanu and Juanda are best friends away from the table, but that all goes away with $500K on the line.
The two fierce competitors will use everything they know about each other to try and bust the other one out of the game. The ace up Cheryl Hines’ sleeve is her sense of humor, but it won’t be so funny to this table full of men when she’s taking away their chips. And with Jose Canseco in the game, there’s always the danger that tilting the former slugger will blow up in a player’s face.
