T.J. Cloutier, Dan Harrington, "Miami" John Cernuto, Barbara Enright, Maureen Feduniak, and Wedneen Eolis will play for the old masters team, while Maciek Gracz, Russ "Dutch" Boyd, Erin Ness, Evelyn Ng, Jennifer "Jennicide" Leigh, and Kasey Thompson will represent the younger generation of poker stars. The series will be hosted by John Ahlers with Lisa Dergan as sideline reporter. Pro poker player Robert Williamson III will provide commentary.
