High Stakes Poker Insider Discusses Season Five.

High Stakes Poker Insider Discusses Season Five.

Tuesday, 23 December 2008

The filming of the fifth season of poker players’ favourite High Stakes Poker has just finished at The Golden Nugget in downtown Las Vegas. The show will air on US cable station GSN, beginning the series on March 4.

High Stakes Poker’s executive producer Mori Eskandani has revealed some information about the televised $300/$600 a$100 NL game, the minimum buy-in of which has been upped to $200,000 for this season.

He said: “The best way to describe it was that it was a heavyweight fight at its best. Poker is different in that it’s not one on one, but it was a heavyweight fight with everyone in the ring. It was hurtful to see some of the favourites going down. In my opinion, it will be the best poker to hit the airwaves and the game was absolutely unbelievable. If you want to see poker as its highest level, then tune into High Stakes Poker.”

He was also excited about the new arrivals to the show, such as 2008 WSOP champion Peter Eastgate and Tom ‘durrrr’ Dwan. “People are going to be, as promised, thrilled to watch these shows. They’re going to see what Peter Eastgate needs to do to in order to become a pro. They’re going to see why Tom Dwan is so good.”
