Table of Contents
The ninth season of the cash game poker show High Stakes Poker starts on February 21st on PokerGO. Poker fans had to wait just under a year after the end of the eighth season of the most successful poker TV show before 14 new seasons are aired starting next Monday.
The line-up of the 9th season is peppered with big names of the scene. Judging by the names the show is aimed above all at poker fans of the first hour. Many of the players were already part of the show in the 2000s when the first seasons of High Stakes Poker aired.
Among others, Tom Dwan, Patrik Antonius, Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey and the now 88-year-old Doyle Brunson will be there. A few new faces are also in the mix. For example, the German WSOP Main Event winner Koray Aldemir has also been invited. Bryn Kenney, Garrett Adelstein, Jennifer Tilly and Jean-Robert Bellande will also partake in several episodes. As in the first seasons, the action will be hosted by Gabe Kaplan and AJ Benza.
The game is no-limit hold'em. In the first episodes, the blinds are $200 / $400 with a minimum buy-in of $100,000. In later episodes, the blinds will be increased to $500 / $1,000.
Arguably the best season yet
Mori Eskandani, President of PokerGO, is sure that he has hit the bull's eye with the ninth season. This is what he announced on pgt.com: "Season 9 of High Stakes Poker is arguably the best season yet, and we cannot wait for poker fans to enjoy the game in its purest form at breathtaking stakes. In addition to the star-studded lineups, fans will be pleased to see a revamped set that aims to capture the traditional authenticity of this legendary show and the return of $50,000 bricks of cash on the table. Starting February 21, every Monday isn’t just poker night, it’s High Stakes Poker night."
