Everyone seems to be getting sick of the no limit freeze out Texas Hold’em tournaments, this is why you see so many new weird tournaments that just put a spin on hold’em. The newest one is the inaugural PokerBowl, which will start in Las Vegas.

This format will have 25 6-player teams that will compete for the USPL National League Title and a $1 million prize. Sounds dumb already eh? Well it gets better… There will be 5 teams in each tournament, the last person standing will advance to the final along with the rest of his team.

One would have to think the collusion level will be high, but apparently they will be referring the players so collusion won’t be an issue. Players are allowed to chip dump but not allowed to make signals to their team mates.

There are several big players already committed to the event. Attention starved boyfriends Phil Laak and Antonio Esfandiari are down along with Scott Fischman, Mike Matusow, thought you had quad kings Jennifer Tilly, Paul Wasicka, Poker Babe Vanessa Rousso, Doyle Bruson, Todd Brunson, Greg Raymer, Gavin Griffin and many other big name players.

The tournament is running from Oct 20th to the 23rd in Las Vegas. Fox Sports will be broadcasting the event in 7 one hour episodes. Tom Schneider will provide commentary and the episodes start January 26th 2008.
