More about The Shark Cage

Heats will be filmed at EPT events in The Bahamas, Monaco and Barcelona, with the $1,000,000 final in London. A full line-up of poker superstars will be taking part, with plenty of trash-talk and exciting action along the way. The show has an innovative format including never-before-seen features, such as:

'Play against the clock': Each player only has 30 seconds to act on each street, ensuring plenty of fast and exciting play.

'Don't get bluffed': If a player pulls off a bluff on the river, the loser gets sent to the Shark Cage to miss an orbit. The bluffer meanwhile gets bonus chips if they make it to the final. If the bluff gets called, the bluffer will go to the tank, and the player who called will get the bonus chips.

'No deals': All players who participate in the TV show will be asked to sign a contract and release form confirming that they will not enter into any deals for the $1,000,000 first prize.
