The High Stakes Poker saga comes to an end

For 6 years, High Stakes Poker has been one of the most popular cash games on television. There have been 8 seasons of High Stakes Poker since they started broadcasting the show on GSN in January 2006, and since the very beginning the biggest names in the poker world have taken part and lost/won millions of dollars.

That is very sad news for poker enthousiasts, because we loved to watch poker pros live on television, I think that Black Friday also caused the viewer ratings to drop.

I really enjoyed watching this show, it really had some sick action lately Smile

It's too bad that from now on there would not be a high stakes televised show...

Pitty I loved the show. Was the best poker show for me. loved to see all (biggest) pro´s on 1 table. The small talk was also very entertaining. Brunson, Ivey, Helmouth, Matasow, Negreano, Fegusson, etc. Lots of love out to you guys.

Watching televised poker was tough for me when i was a beginner, mainly because i didn't know who the hell anyone was, but once i became more accustomed i found it very rewarding, there's still plenty of other poker shows on UK television, mainly on channel 4 i find.

I watched som poker in the TV the other day, I think it was on Eurosport. It was a poor tournament with poor players and nothing like the good old days, when WPT was the only poker in danish TV.

Yeah, it sure didn't help... and also the fact that they changed the analyst (I prefered Gabe Kaplan by far). I hope high stakes poker will survive though, loved that show.

The problem can be in the type of contract between the show and the television. One should take a look at those broacast shares to try and take some conclusions about the profile of the viewer. Defining a contract with another company with a different viewer profile could probably bring bigger share rates to a show like this.

I didn't really watch this either never enjoyed it either. Maybe once or twice.
I literally enjoyed watching other online videos more. or just pokerstars.

Like the big game... So much more entertaining then this.
A loss for poker community, but not for me if i may be this frank
