Poker Central purchases HighStakes Poker TV show
HighStakes Poker is a popular TV poker program that attracts large number of people all over the globe. For the first time, episodes of this show appeared on television about 15 years ago and immediately gained great popularity among the viewers.
The other day, Poker Central purchased the brand and assets of HighStakes, and in the near future, PokerGo will start broadcasting episodes of this program.
Poker Central president, Sampson Simmons, is pleased with the given acquisition. He believes that HighStakes Poker is a great poker program, which has famous players, big pots and lots of action.
Speaking to reporters, Sampson said that they had decided to bring magic of the show back by broadcasting HighStakes show through their platform. Simmons also added that the team would produce new episodes of the program to the joy of the audience.
Overall, there were 8 seasons shot at different casinos. The last filming location was the legendary Bellagio casino, and such poker professionals as Antonio Esfandiari, Doyle Brunson and Daniel Negreanu were among the participants.
For the entire duration of HighStakes Poker, the tournaments were held with various buy-ins. The most expensive entry ($500 000) was recorded in Season 4, but in the new season, this record is likely to be broken, given the trends of modern live poker events.
