Posted on 22 July 2019 by "T".

Gus Hansen is one of the few high-stakes poker pros who give us a glimpse of what goes on behind the doors of Bobby's Room at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

Even though he failed to cash a significant amount that befits a super high-stakes player during the 50th year anniversary of the WSOP (he won $20,200 for placing 689th at the 2019 WSOP Event #73: $10,000 Main Event), Hansen was able to accumulate a stack that reached seven figures at Bobby's Room, which he proceeded to cash out.

Just a few minutes ago, American poker pro Erick Lindgren (a well-known figure from the classic televised cash game High Stakes Poker) took down Event #32: No-Limit Hold'em (Six Handed) after a very interesting heads-up against Lee Markholt, who was looking to win his first bracelet.

Lindgren brought a massive lead to heads-up play, but Markholt gave him a good fight. It didn't take long before Markholt doubled up with a flopped straight vs KK of Lindgren. After that he went on a winning streak to bring the stacks to about even. However, Lindgren never let go of the lead and proved too strong for Markholt who received $374,960 for finishing runner-up after losing several big pots. Lindgren received $606,317 in prize money and now has 2 WSOP bracelets under his belt!

Posted on 01 February 2012 by "T".

A few months ago poker player and music mogul Alan Meltzer passed away. Two days ago, the New York Post wrote what Melzer repaid faithful workers who gave him a shoulder to cry on - by making them rich after his death. One of them is upper East Side doorman Chamil Demiraj, who received $500,000, and the other one his chauffeur Jean Laborde, who received $1,000,000.

"I appreciate it," Demiraj said. "He was a generous guy. He was a really good friend of mine, and I was a good friend of his. It's a surprise. Peace and rest to him. That's all I can say."

"He was always joking. He never looked down on anybody,'' said Laborde, a 54-year-old father of five from Irvington, NJ. "He was such a nice guy. He left me money, but it's not a good deal for me because it means he's no longer here.''

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.

This year, however, the show's viewer ratings have been been extremely poor and many have stopped watching the show. In fact, the low viewer base of High Stakes Poker might mean the end of the show as GSN won't continue broadcasting the show next year. And it remains unclear whether or not any other TV channel wants to continue broadcasting the show. In other words, season 8 might be the last season of High Stakes Poker.

For example, Gabe Kaplan has been replace with the comedian Norm MacDonald and the game is now taking place at the Bellagio Casino.
