The still yet to be named Federated Sports+Gaming poker league is lining up some announcements in the coming weeks.
One of them will be their 220-ish invite player invite list into the league.
We’ve learned from various sources that FS+G tweaked their formula enough to ensure online superstars like Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan and Patrik Antonius make the cut.
We’ve also learned that FS+G plans on announcing their lifetime exemption list, which will include the following seven members: Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth, Erik Seidel, Johnny Chan, and…Men “The Master” Nguyen.
While appetite for the league has definitely grown amongst players in light of what 4/15TM will likely do to TV poker programming options, there is still no word if FS+G has found an actual TV partner (rumored to be CBS) because, well, there are no more advertisers to support poker programming. That being the case, the costs of a time-buy would likely include purchasing something close to all of the ad units, which would be a major cash drain. Regardless, we’ve learned that internal FS+G discussion suggests a CBS deal may be imminent.
If FS+G does strike a TV deal, former NBC Executive Producer David Neal (dude is legit) is rumored to lead production for the company.
