AJ Benza Out, PokerStars in at High Stakes Poker

AJ Benza Out, PokerStars in at High Stakes Poker

Thursday, 15 October 2009

GSN’s highly-rated televised poker cash game, High Stakes Poker, will be returning to our screens in early 2010 – and there was much rejoicing.

With this news now comes the announcement that AJ Benza will not be returning alongside Gabe Kaplan in the commentator’s box. Rumour has it a female co-host will be joining him.

Speculation is abound that the new lady in town might well be Vanessa Rousso – this rumour comes from the fact that PokerStars have been announced as the official sponsors of the show. Last year, PokerStars pros Barry Greenstein, Peter Eastgate, Joe Hachem, Dario Minieri and Daniel Negreanu took to the tables. This year, November Niner Dennis Phillips has confirmed he will be in attendance at the filming.

Tom “durrrr” Dwan is expected to return after his show-stealing performance in Season Five, and Phil Hellmuth has said that he will be appearing.
