Late Night Poker Ace
Commentators: Jesse May and Simon "Aces" Trumper
Referee: Thomas Kremser
Dealers: Marina Kremser and Markus Pollak
Presentable for Channel 4, 2005-6
A competition to find the UK's best amateur, non-celebrity poker player. Nothing particularly different to Late Night Poker - the usual dealers and commentator are all present and correct. The winner wins a "lifestyle package" worth £50,000, whatever that is ($50,000 in series 2).
In 2006, the top players went on to mix with the pros in Late Night Poker Masters with $100,000 cash for the winner.
The eagle-eyed amongst you may have spotted that Cupid has been busy. Long-time staff on the Late Night Poker series, dealer Marina Rado has changed her surname because she married floor man Thomas Kremser in 2005. Ahhh.
