The third season of HIGH STAKES POKER will be taped in Las Vegas. The tape date, location and complete field of players will be announced later.
The second season of HIGH STAKES POKER is currently airing on GSN Monday nights at 9:00 PM ET. HIGH STAKES POKER is the first true cash game of poker on television with a $100,000 minimum buy-in.
