  of shows in early June on GSN, the Network for Games.

“...The third season of the World Series of Blackjack carries a $1 million prize pool, with $500,000 going to the winner.

“The tournament has a field of 40 players and will be divided into 13 TV episodes.

“Whereas all of the players in the first two seasons were simply invited to compete, more than half of this season's field qualified by winning promotional tournaments held at casinos throughout the country. The rest, including some established blackjack tournament experts, were invited to play.

“Producers plan to rely more extensively on qualifying tournaments in forthcoming seasons, a model reminiscent of ‘satellite poker tournaments - smaller, less expensive events that award entry into larger, more lucrative tournaments.

“...GSN has introduced a couple of twists to its telecast of the third season of the WSOB, including a so-called ‘knockout feature’ by which the player with the smallest stack of chips at the table periodically gets, well, knocked out.
