GSN Premieres New Holiday Treats for Poker Fans: 'ULTIMATEBET.NET ARUBA CLASSIC' and 'BEST OF HIGH STAKES POKER' in December

Poker Superstars Phil Hellmuth, Annie Duke and John Vorhaus Call the Action in Aruba Never Before Seen Footage From Seasons One and Two of HIGH STAKES POKER Comes to the Air

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Nov. 20 -- GSN's poker fans will have an extra present under the tree this holiday season when the network telecasts the ULTIMATEBET.NET ARUBA CLASSIC on Friday, Dec. 8 at 10 PM ET and new footage from its popular poker series in the BEST OF HIGH STAKES POKER Monday, Dec. 11 at 8 PM ET.

A world class field of poker players assembled for the no-limit Texas hold 'em tournament in Aruba with $2.6 million in prize money at stake. Calling the action from the final table is one of the top tournament players of all-time, Phil Hellmuth. Hellmuth will be joined by one of the top female poker players in the world, Annie Duke, as well as the best selling author and poker expert John Vorhaus on the telecast.

Over five hundred players entered the prestigious Aruba tournament and six players made the final table. The final table featured; Jason Atwood (Tualatin, OR), Jared Brintz (Tampa, FL), Terry Eischens (Shakopee, MN), Cliff Josephy (Syosset, NY), Devon Miller (Los Angeles, CA) and Joe Sebok (San Francisco, CA).

HIGH STAKES POKER has become the favorite show for poker fans with players risking their own cash and huge pots. The first two seasons have featured pots of over $300,000 and over a half million dollars. Unlike tournament poker shows, HIGH STAKES POKER is the only "Cash Game" on television.

The "BEST OF" show will feature the most memorable moments and never before seen footage from the first two seasons. It will also include interviews with the players as they talk about their play on the show and the plays of their opponents. AJ Benza and Gabe Kaplan reprise their regular roles for this special.
