The new Poker After Dark cash game series can’t compete with High Stakes Poker in terms of sheer star power nor big pot potential – but hear us out, it’s going to be awesome.
The new show is a $50,000 buy-in minimum, with blinds of $100/$200/$25, giving a good ante structure and a cool 250BB stack to begin the day. While the line-up doesn’t feature TV poker’s biggest names – Antonius, Dwan, Ivey; all playing the nosebleeds at Full Tilt – it does have a great guestlist.Chris Ferguson, Phil Hellmuth, Antonio Esfandiari, Brandon Adams, Todd Brunson, and Mike Matusow will later be joined by David Peat and Dennis Phillips as the game progresses. Esfandiari, Hellmuth and Matusow are always outclassed on High Stakes Poker; the former is far too tight and playing over his head to be frank. However, Victory Poker Pro Esfandiari is definitely one of the more savvy cash players in this line-up and a much smaller game will suit him. Expect good things.The show runs this week and can be viewed on NBC.com totally free – though you will have to tolerate awful American comme- sorry, adverts.
