Mike Matusow returns for another season of High Stakes Poker.

GSN is dealing out another season of poker as High Stakes Poker 4 is preparing to hit the airwaves in Aug. 27 at 9 p.m. (EDT) with even more episodes for poker fans to watch.

The lineup of players includes the Sammy Farha and Todd Brunson.

They all must put up at least $100,000 of their own money for this private game of No-Limit Texas Hold'em, and that leads to some big money during Season IV.

The show is up to 17 episodes this season, from 13 last year, and the last seven episodes will see up to and more than $5 million on the table as the players duke it out in the richest televised cash game in history.

Boosting the money to those levels is a raise in the minimum buy-in. Starting with the episode airing Nov. 5, players will have to bring at least $500,000 to the tables.

Those last seven episodes will feature Doyle Brunson, Jamie Gold, Daniel Negreanu, Sammy Farha, Antonio Esfandiari, Patrik Antonius, David Benyamine and Guy Laliberte.

Laliberte, Cirque de Soleil founder, has been doing well at major tournaments in recent months and makes his first appearance on High Stakes Poker this season. He is donating a percentage of money he wins to his charity "One Drop."
