After Black Friday ripped a hole into every online poker players heart in early 2011 (including my own), it meant that online poker would never be the same again. Multiple online poker-related shows started to slowly die-off throughout 2011, including High Stakes Poker.
Thanks to the people over at PokerGO.com, everyone’s favorite poker show, High Stakes Poker, is able to make its return this week with its 8th season. Gabe Kaplan – co-host during the first six seasons – and A.J. Benza – co-host during the first five seasons – return as this season’s hosts.
Season 8 of High Stakes Poker will feature several top poker players, such as Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Jean-Robert Bellande, Jason Koon, and Phil Hellmuth. While the aforementioned players are much older now, they still bring with them a deep understanding of poker, a lot of money, and the gift of gab.
High Stakes Poker Season 8 can be seen every Wednesday at 5pm PT/8pm ET/2:00 LP.net on PokerGO.com.
