High Stakes Preview
Season 5 of “High Stakes Poker” has already been filmed, but won’t begin airing until March1st. To whet your appetite, though, 2 different preview trailers have been released. And I’ve got to say: they look great! It seems like they got a whole new camera crew to film the show, and, with some brand new angles and a higher-definition picture, everything looks shiny and crisp and new. And the players! Check out the lineup of studs in these two clips, and try to imagine a poker game with more potential for excitement:
Holy mother of God! The call-down in the first hand is downright insane, especially given the player doing the betting. And the look on Durrrr’s face in the second clip, when the reigning World Champion calls him down with basically the nuts is just priceless. Bring on March 1st!
Update: One more preview clip has surfaced:
This looks like the first hand of the session… and it’s pretty standard. Raise the limpers with 9-high, reraise with K9s. Yup, pretty standard there. Oh my head…
Update redux: The entire first episode is up on YouTube already, courtesy of the fine folks at GSN. Enjoy!
