NBC has joined forces with Full Tilt Poker to film "Face The Ace", a new concept for a poker show where players who qualify online get to play heads-up against three Full Tilt pros for a $1,000,000 prize.  This is according to Poker News Daily.

It was not immediately known when the show would air or if it would seek to capitalize from the excitement of the World Series of Poker in any way.  The 2009 WSOP kicks off Friday July 3.

ESPN has enjoyed a ratings bonanza over the years with its coverage of the WSOP.  The Travel Channel at one time became synonymous with televised poker tournament success through its airings of the high rated World Poker Tour. 

Full Tilt Poker was one of two online poker rooms whose funds were seized by the US Attorneys office in the Southern District of New York in early June.  A total exceeding $40 million has thus far been froze.  Gambling911.com filed a motion on Thursday to unseal the seizure warrants in that matter
