High Stakes Poker

High Stakes Poker might be the best known cash game poker show on TV. The show has already run for several years at Game Show Network(GSN). In this poker show every player has to play holdem poker cash games with their own money, the minimum buy in is usually $100k and in some special episodes it has been $500,000. Some of the regulars of this show are Phil Hellmuth, Patrik Antonius, Daniel Negreanu, David Williams, Jennifer Harmon, Doyle Brunson, Todd Brunson, Sam Farha and Mike “The Mouth” Matusow. Almost all the guys(and girl) who play in this game are extremely agressive players and not afraid to run their mouth which makes for some great TV entertainment.

There has been numerous hands with over $500,000 in the middle and even couple hands where someone had the chance of winning over $1million pot. And if these poker pros ever get bored in action they have habbit of doing so called props, this means that they bet on silly things like what color there is most on flop. As with almost every poker show the viewer can see the hole cards players are holding, this is a good thing for poker players who want to see how the pros play.

AJ Benza and Gabe Kaplan have their own unique, but cool stlye of commenting the hands.

Overall High Stakes Poker is one of the best cash game poker TV-shows.
