GSN Renews 'High Stakes Poker' for a Third Season

Critically Acclaimed Poker Series is the Only 'Cash Game' on Television

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 9 -- GSN has renewed its highly successful cash game poker series HIGH STAKES POKER for a third season, it was announced today. The second season of HIGH STAKES POKER is currently airing on GSN Monday nights at 9:00 PM ET.

"We were betting that HIGH STAKES POKER would be a success and we have won big," said Rich Cronin, President and CEO of GSN. "This show has proven to be a breakout hit with poker fans. We couldn't be more pleased by the response that we have gotten from viewers and television critics who have called HIGH STAKES POKER a 'must-see' and the 'best poker show' on television."

The location and players for the third season of HIGH STAKES POKER will be announced later. The taping is scheduled to begin in October.

HIGH STAKES POKER is the first true cash game of poker on television with a $100,000 minimum buy-in. Unlike other poker shows that are tournaments such as the "World Series of Poker" where the most players can lose is their initial buy-in of $10,000, the players on GSN's HIGH STAKES POKER have several hundreds of thousands of dollars of their own cash at stake to win and lose.

The first two seasons have featured the top professionals in poker including Doyle Brunson, Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein, Jennifer Harman, Antonio Esfandiari, Mike Matusow, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Laak, Johnny Chan plus many others as well as amateurs Fred Chamanara, a restaurant owner from Chicago and Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss.

HIGH STAKES POKER's current season was taped at The Palms Casino in Las Vegas. Gabe Kaplan and AJ Benza call the action. Henry Orenstein of HSOR, L.L.C. serves as the Executive Producer of HIGH STAKES POKER.

As the popularity of poker continues to grow, GSN has also announced it will be replaying the first season of HIGH STAKES POKER on Mondays beginning September 18 at 8 PM ET.
