High Stakes Poker 6 Set For Valentine's Day Premier

GSN has a Valentine's Day gift for fans of High Stakes Poker.

The sixth season of the popular show will premier on the Network Sunday Feb. 14, featuring a familiar line-up of renowned poker champions, cash game specialists and promising up-and-comers.

Producers are also promising a brand-new look and feel for the show that puts viewers in the thick of the poker action.

Poker player and former European Poker Tour presenter Kara Scott will join Gabe Kaplan as co-host this season, but not before GSN airs an eight-hour "I LOVE POKER" marathon featuring highlights from past seasons of the show prior to the premier Sunday.

In addition to the usual cash-game action, Scott will report from the High Stakes Poker suite this season, interviewing players about strategy, table dynamics and giving viewers first-hand feedback after significant hands.

Featuring $200,000 minimum buy-in, the new season is promising the toughest line-up ever, including pros Patrik Antonius, David Benyamine, Doyle Brunson, Tom "durrrr" Dwan, Eli Elezra, Antonio Esfandiari, Barry Greenstein, Phil Hellmuth, Andreas Hoivold, Phil Ivey, Mike Matusow, Daniel Negreanu, Dennis Phillips and Lex Veldhuis.

The premier episode will air Feb. 14 at 8:00 p.m. ET and subsequent episodes will air Sundays at 8 p.m. ET with encore airings at 11 p.m. ET and 2 a.m. ET on GSN.

Daughter, quit badgering my grandson. He's entitled to criticizing whoever he pleases. Now come change my diper...

Andrew. Just because you were the first to comment here, you don't need to criticize the grown ups like Dennis Phillips.

Now go clean up your room before dinner. I'm making your favorite: Spaghettio's!

I heard that Sammy had said that playing has become more difficult after HSP because people could see the way he played and played back at him more often.

I think DB is just taking a break online after a cold streak.

I thought David Benyamine was broke!!!

Why Sammy Farha isn't participating in HSP anymore? He wasn't in season 5 and as long as I can see he's not gonna be in this season also. Anyone knows?

I didn't know Dennis Phillips was a FEARED poker player. Am I missing something because to me Dennis Phillips is just a mediocre player. He is by far no where close to being tough.
