The first episode of the 7th season of High Stakes Poker was released a few days ago. A lot has changed in the new season of the very popular poker show. For example, Gabe Kaplan has been replace with the comedian Norm MacDonald and the game is now taking place at the Bellagio Casino. However, the biggest news (and saddest) is that no Full Tilt Poker pros will take part.

In the first episode of High Stakes Poker we get to see the following players gamble for some serious cash, Doyle Brunson, Antonio Esfandiari, Bill Klein, Vanessa Selbst, David Peat, Barry Greenstein and the 2 businessmen Robert Croak and Bill Ruffin.
