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.
