Where there's high-stakes poker action, there's Texas Dolly.

High Stakes Poker will be returning to the small screen for another season on GSN, and now we've got a preview of who some of the big names at the felt will be.

The poker show begins filming its fifth season this month at the Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino.

Some of the returning players include stars such as Phil Hellmuth, Doyle Brunson and Eli Elezra.

New to the felt this season will be young hotshots such as Tom "durrrr" Dwan and reigning World Champion Peter Eastgate.

Not all of the players in High Stakes Poker are big names on the poker circuit. Instead, some of them are just deep-pocketed recreational players from all sorts of industries. For example, The Simpson creator Sam Simon and film director Nick Cassavetes will be among the celebrity players.

Other players scheduled to appear are:

  • Patrik Antonius
  • Mike Baxter
  • David Benyamine
  • Ivan Demidov
  • Antonio Esfandiari
  • Barry Greenstein
  • Phil Ivey
  • Phil Laak
  • Howard Lederer
  • Giorgio Medici
  • Dario Minieri
  • Daniel Negreanu
  • Ilari Sahamies
  • Bob Safai

This season, the players will have to put up a minimum cash buy-in of $200,000 to play in the game for the entire season of High Stakes Poker.
