High Stakes result hk : Season 5

High Stakes Poker has a home for its fifth season. However, that home is the same place it’s been for the first four – The Game Show Network, also known as GSN. While the World Poker Tour will no longer be on GSN, High Stakes Poker will be staying. High Stakes result hk fate was uncertain for quite awhile. While it was known that they would most likely pick up another television deal if talks with GSN stalled or fell through, it wasn’t known where they would end up if talks soured. The uncertainty was furthered when WPT wasn’t picked up by GSN, and moved on to Fox Sports Network.

High Stakes Poker has been popular with its inception, as it features some of the most popular players in the world, such as Doyle Brunson, Phil Ivey, and Phil Hellmuth. In Season 4, they started to feature players that were lesser known to the general public, such as internet phenoms Brian Townsend and Phil Galfond. Whether this trend will continue in Season 5 is also a mystery.


What is known for sure is that High Stakes Poker will yet again be on GSN. It’s rumored that the new season will kick off in 2009, as well as a variation to the show’s format – Omaha. If the past four seasons haven’t produced enough action or massive pots, the addition of Omaha will definitely do that. While it’s going to be a bit of a wait, High Stakes Poker will be back.

Another Sunday is in the books, and a juggernaut has emerged in the online poker scene, with his fourth major win in under a month. Before we get to that, let’s start off with the biggest weekly online tournament – The Poker Stars Sunday Million.

The Sunday Million table was far from weak, with two interesting names showing up at the final table. Nofingclue11 has been on a tear this year, showing up at big final tables all over the place. However, the second name at the final table was especially interesting. Andy McLEOD has been gone for quite some time due to being underage. However, yesterday he turned 18, and celebrated doing so by taking 4th in the Sunday Million for $75,879, while nofingclue11 finished right behind him in 5th, for $59k.
