The 2009 season of NBC's top poker show will change its filming location from the South Point Casino to the illustrious Golden Nugget.

The Golden Nugget, the longest running Vegas Hotel to maintain its AAA's Four Diamond status, has signed a deal to have the first 60 episodes of Poker After Dark filmed inside its newest events center "The Grand". This is not the first serious poker production to use this location, as Brett Kellerman, The Golden Nuggets chief operating officer, pointed out in his statement:

"The Golden Nugget is thrilled to host the fifth season of NBC's exciting, late-night poker program, Poker After Dark. The Golden Nugget has been home to several big poker productions, as well as hosted many poker tournaments and events, so bringing a top-rated program like Poker After Dark to the property just seemed like a natural fit."

Season four of PAD had some of the most entertaining matches ever caught on tape, a selection of games and formats each with the seats filled by some of the most prestigious and talented, online and live, poker players of all time.

In Season 5, PAD plans to bring more of the creative matches, along with multiple sessions of their classic six-handed, winner takes all sit-n-go format.

Season 4 of the program is airing now on NBC.
