Poker Central Picks Up High Stakes Poker Brand

Poker Central is betting its users will appreciate a chance to watch High Stakes Poker again. The company is acquiring the brand and assets for the poker cash game TV show that ran on Game Show Network for seven seasons between 2006 and 2011; following the acquisition, PokerGO will begin streaming episodes . Poker Central is currently finalizing plans for the future of the series, including new episode distribution through PokerGO and potential broadcast and streaming partners.

“High Stakes Poker was a remarkable poker program. With star players, massive pots, and memorable moments, the show beautifully conveys the drama of cash game poker,” said Sampson Simmons, president of Poker Central. “Bringing the existing episodes of High Stakes Poker to our platform and producing more in the future will enable us to recapture the nostalgia and magic of the show for our PokerGO subscribers in the present-day poker climate.”

Mori Eskandani, who now serves as executive producer at Poker Central, produced all seven seasons of High Stakes Poker for Game Show Network, along with executive producer Henry Orenstein who created the series. “High Stakes Poker was raw and natural, we just let the players play and that’s what made it so special.” said Eskandani. “It’s truly a dream come true to bring the series to a new generation of poker fans and players, and we expect even more action when the show returns with faces both new and old.”
