Televised Poker Hitting Our Screens

If you enjoy sitting back and watching some of the best poker players in the world go head to head on your TV screen, you will not be disappointed in the coming months. Televised poker is back on our screens in 2018, with fresh content, along with (maybe) classic seasons of High Stakes Poker.

PokerStars Championship Cash Challenge with Kevin Hart

This latest televised offering from PokerStars is the PokerStars Cash Challenge with Kevin Hart. This concept involves four professional players sitting down with a qualifier and comedian Kevin Hart to play a 25/50 Euros cash game, with players buying in for up to 25,000 Euros. Daniel Negreanu takes his place in the episode 1 line-up alongside Hart, Charlie Carrel, Liv Boeree, Faraz Jaka and the online qualifier. Early episodes are already available to watch on YouTube.

High Stakes Poker almost available on YouTube?

This is an announcement that remains in the balance, because although the entire back catalogue of High Stakes Poker episodes did appear on the official YouTube Channel of Game Show Network, they had suddenly disappeared at the time of writing.

However, this poker show is probably the best-loved televised cash game offering that has ever been, which means we should expect it to be available to poker fans eventually. Game Show Network own the rights to the show, but apparently have not yet decided how to proceed in terms of airing old episodes or filming new ones.
