The new Full Tilt YouTube TV show is hitting the net with a series of episodes airing an array of classic poker shows.

Full Tilt Poker has been going from strength to strength since it became the sister site of PokerStars. Its promotional campaign to bring the site to the forefront of the market, as well as give its customers that extra excuse to remain loyal to what is one of the most entertaining games of online poker around. The esteemed online poker room has a reputation for its comical avatars, and the configurable lobby has made the site the number one choice for a growing list of poker fans.

For the new TV show, Full Tilt’s idea has been to take the best poker shows that have graced our screens over the last few years and air them the new YouTube channel as a resource for poker players to catch up on how the stars of the game have risen and fallen. Shows such as Poker After Dark, which Full Tilt used to air regularly have been scheduled, and a host of other poker greats are at hand. Additional shows include The Poker Lounge and the Late Night Poker show, plus the Million Dollar Cash game that attracts some of the biggest stars to the table, which is also part of the parcel.

Those interested in getting their internet connections shaking the poker wires over YouTube can expect all the episodes to star the top names in poker. Look out for Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Antonio Esfandiari, Doyle Brunson and more. You’ll get a taste from a variety of the showdowns between the big stars with some big pots and big bluffs.

Most of the shows have active card cams, so you can see the players’ cards and watch how they make their decisions as poker players.

There are some amazing value bets as well as amazing folds to watch out for from over the years, plus hopefully the show will also air the big $1.1 million hand between Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey in that magical moment where Ivey landed a wheel at the same time Dwan amazingly hit the higher straight. Ivey obviously thought Dwan was being his usual aggressive self by chasing the flush and shoved all-in, but he was met with a snap call as Dwan revealed the higher straight leaving Phil Ivey in shock.

Some have already touted the new Full Tilt poker channel as being one of the top resources in poker. Full Tilt Poker has always been a reputable site when it comes to knowing and understanding what the poker public is looking for, and this is just another example of just how to get it right when it comes to pleasing their poker fans.
