On 30 July, a new poker show called "High Stakes Duel" will appear on the screens. This TV show will probably please those who are quarantined at home, because due to the lack of live series and broadcasts, we can observe only the repeats of poker events.
Heads-up between Antonio Esfandiari and Phil Hellmuth will become the first battle in "High Stakes Duel". The action will take place in a special studio at Aria.
The show format is quite a unique and it has great prospects for surviving in an increasingly competitive world of the poker shows. "High Stakes Duel" has all chances to occupy a unique place among poker TV programs.
The entry fee to the game is $50 000. This amount doubles with every new round and theoretically, if it reaches the 8th level, the prize pool will reach the mark of $8 800 000. If one of the players loses, he will be able to take part again with three matches in a row, but the bets will also be doubled.
