CBS may enter poker game

Four-tournament tour was conceived by pro Annie Duke

CBS may be coming up aces in the poker world.

According to sources, the Eye has been in early discussions about televising a new tour that is the brainchild of poker pro Annie Duke, former World Series of Poker commissioner Jeffrey Pollack and Federated Sports and Gaming.

The four-tournament event will take place in August, September, December and January, followed by a championship round. All tournaments will be played at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

CBS declined to comment.

ESPN has long made its mark with the hugely popular World Series of Poker, televising the event each summer and fall. Last year’s winner, Jonathan Duhamel, took home a first-place prize of $8.9 million over a field of 7,319 players. Cabler is currently airing the World Series of Poker Europe.

Since 2007, NBC has aired “Poker After Dark” six days a week at 2 a.m. Peacock also telecasts the Heads-Up Championship from Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in the spring.

The World Poker Tour airs on Fox Sports Net. Seasons nine through 11 air at 8 and 11 p.m. Sundays.
