New Poker TV Show “Shuffle Up and Deal” To Be Hosted By Mike Sexton

A new poker show is set to hit the airwaves next year with none other than Mike Sexton as the host. Whereas other recent poker shows have had some fairly poor reviews, “Shuffle Up and Deal” is hoping to succeed where others have failed, by targeting mostly casual fans, which are deemed the mainstay of any television audience.
The half-hour program is being advertised on as “TV’s First Family-Friendly Poker-Themed Game Show.” The format of the show will see 5 amateurs choose cards from an electronic board as they attempt to make a strong five card hand.
Using their skills, intuition, and luck they will compete with each other to win the most money so as to progress to a bonus round where they will then play for a progressive jackpot that starts off at $250,000 and goes up $10,000 for every episode that the jackpot isn’t hit.
Newly appointed Poker Hall of Fame and poker ambassador, Mike Sexton, would appear to be the perfect choice of hosts, having had a vast experience of both playing in and presenting poker competitions. In addition to his 1989 WSOP bracelet, Sexton has cashed in at WSOP tournaments 45 times for $883,323, and amassed over $3,700,000 in lifetime tournament winnings.  
Alongside Sexton will be appearing “Princess of Poker” Brandi Williams, the glamorous hostess famous for presenting the hit series Ultimate Poker Challenge. Following the announcement, Sexton commented:
“Poker has been a great source of entertainment for many people for many years, but in order to grow and continue to be the most popular game of all time, poker needs to reach out to a whole new audience. Shuffle Up and Deal does just that and I’m proud to be a part of this new movement.”
