2 months, $2 million to air on G4

2 Months, $2 Million promotion

Poker is once again making its way into the mainstream with the upcoming reality show 2 Months $2 Million on G4 TV.

The show will center on well-known high-stakes online pros Jay "pr1nnyraid" Rosenkrantz, Emil "Whitelime" Patel, Brian "Flawless_Victory" Roberts and Dani "Ansky" Stern as they try to collectively win $2 million in two months playing online poker.

The group will use a shared bankroll while staying at a 10,000 square foot mansion in Las Vegas, just outside of the strip, which includes a specialized "war room" with four 50-inch plasmas and several computers for multi-tabling online poker.

Each cast member is no stranger to success in poker. Stern recently finished fourth in the 2009 WSOP's $40,000 No-Limit Hold'em event for $548,315.

Patel finished second in the 2008 Full Tilt Poker Heads-Up tournament for $320,000 and both Rosenkrantz and Roberts have earned hundreds of thousands playing cash games online.

With the house only a few miles from the Strip, the crew will also take time out from poker to explore the Las Vegas scene, all for the benefit of reality TV.

There will also be several guest stars as the guys will have dinner with online cash-game wizard Tom "durrrr" Dwan, play a live cash game against Erica Schoenberg and log some high-stakes action against David Benyamine.

In a teaser clip for the show, the group is seen gambling for who will take what room in the mansion and then hanging out with some Playboy Playmates in the pool.

The show will feature 10 half-hour episodes and begins airing Aug. 16 at 9 p.m. PT.
