High Stakes Poker

No final table at the World Series or at the World Poker Tour features this many professionals at the same time.

    • Love the action. The commentary could be improved.

      The action is great. Love seeing every hand rather than just highlights. It's nice seeing real cash action instead of just the big hands. This way you can see the mood end tempo that leads up to the big hands. There is much more to poker than just the highlight reels.

      Overall, it;s a great show. But the commentaries are kind of stupid at times. Corny jokes and not as entertaining as they could be. The ESPN guys do it better. Great production and true poker action on this show. Just improve the commentator personalities and you would have the best poker show on TV.moreless
    • My favorite poker show.

      Out of all the poker shows, this is my favorite. It features all of my favorite professional poker players playing real cash-money Texas Hold'em. It's fun to see them lose big pots because it's actually their own money which is different from a regular tournament buy-in. It's really exciting to see how the hands hold up since they are professionals and can bluff each other out and make excellent reads on each other. The only thing I don't like is that sometimes a person will be at the table, but won't be shown playing a hand the entire episode. I want to see everyone play! Great show, though.moreless
    • Good show which clearly demonstrates betting strategies when real money is at stake every hand. More betting details would improve the understanding of shat is going on. I.e. blind levels, and current betting levels. Also what is a straddle?moreless

      1. Please show clearly how many players there are.

      2. The betting patterns need to be displayed better. You coudl show the blind amounts, betting position, and current amount of bets or totals in the pot.

      3. What is a straddle??

      I do like the show, I dont like too much abusive type chatter, and verbal slights by the commentators. I do like Abe's analysis fo what the players are hoping for, what the appopriate level of betting is, and what they are fearful of.

    • High Stakes Poker is a cash game poker television program broadcast by the cable television network GSN. This emission sees to clash the best players of cash game world within enormous limits of cashmoreless

      Doyle Brunson the best player ever , Johnny Chan ,Daniel Negreanu, Gus Hansen, Sam Farah, Antonio Esfandiari and many other players are playind no limit texas hold'em.

      Unlike tournament poker, the chips involved represent real money

      Most Of the players are professionals but some times we see some amateurs on the table ( a lot of them loose a lot of money)

      The minimum buy-in to the game is US$100,000, but players have bought in for as much as $1,000,000.

      If you like poker and especially No limit texas hold'em you will love this show! The biggest pot in the show's history ($575,700), occurred between Gus Hansen and Daniel Negreanu. When Gus' 5d 5cl outdrew Daniel's 6sp 6h on a board of 9cl 6d 5h 5sp 8sp. Giving Daniel a full house, fives full of sixes. And Gus four of a kind (quads)

      u gonna love it!!moreless
    • THE best poker show on T.V..

      Bottom line, anyone who has evern played poker should watch this show . The mixture of the semi-crazy, the rich, and the incredibly talented make this very very good t.v.. It is simply amazing to watch these people make decisions of thousands and thousands of dollars based upon aggression, reading people, and just experience at playing similar hands before..

      I have never come across a poker player who watches t.v. who has NOT watched this show and agrees that it's the best show on t.v..

      Honestly, give credit to Kaplan -- his knowledge of the game (and ability to play as shown in the third season) makes him the best host out there too - even if he is a little corny at times.moreless
