That's something I look forward to. I really miss the episodes of High Stakes that used to be on. Although I wouldn't get to watch them if it weren't for some of the Mobsters posting them. There was a lot of good converstaions and top line players on every episode. This will do the poker world some good. At least for us who like to watch it!

We got poker coming out our a$$es on TV over here in Canada! There's at least half a dozen or more poker shows on every day. For some reason they put them on all the sports networks. Probabaly just to fill up all the dead time when there's no live sports events happening,....and usually a lot of them are reruns from years ago.
I wonder if it ever occurred to PokerStars to start a 24hr poker channel on cable. they seem to monopolize everywhere else...

how fcukin interesting- being glued to tv monitor watching some poker "pro" play some hands that are cut out of his ordinary fold fold fold fold...call/raise routine. anyone can have similar experiences live- just hit the virtual tables and you're in the pulse of the action. i would watch only those episodes where hot babes play strip poker.

It's about time! I watched all " High Stakes Poker" episodes and I really enjoyed them. I hope this show will be at least as good and long as "High Stakes Poker" was, and also, I really hope to see Phil Helmuth go crazy after losing a hand. )

I love watching these type of events. The players are all top names and to see them sitting there with bundles of cash in front of them instead of chips really brings it home to how much money is on stake
