European poker fans can look forward to a television program dedicated to their pastime this week with the launch of The Poker Player Show, a thirty minute program created to reflect the content of Poker Player magazine, and hosted each month by Poker Channel presenter Anna Fowler.
Episode 1 features Neil Channing in the studio answering questions on strategy and talking about the UK poker scene, along with interviews with Norwegian pro Annette Obrestad and recent WPT London winner and UK pro Jake Cody.
Angus Gairdner, executive producer of The PokerPlayer Show, said, "With the eyes of the poker world firmly fixed on London this autumn, what better way to kick off this exciting new series than by taking our cameras along to such prestigious events as the first ever WPT London, the English Poker Open and the now well-established WSOP Europe. We're delighted to have teamed up with Poker Player to bring this unique new show to poker fans."
Matthew Balch, associate publisher for the magazine, noted that Poker Player attracts the world's biggest names to its cover each issue.
"We thought the idea of a magazine show for TV could help us bring our content to life," he said this week. "In future we would like all of our feature interviews to be conducted using video so that we can bring readers closer to their heroes.
"Working with The Poker Channel with its extensive reach and experience in poker programming around the globe makes sense, as we already market Poker Player across Europe and to Australasia via the newsstand and by subscription. We are continually looking at ways to build the brand and hopefully a venture like this can achieve that both in the UK and overseas."
The Poker Player Show premieres on Thursday 23rd September at 2230 CET across continental Europe and at 10.30pm BST in the UK and Eire.
