Seated from left: Eli Elezra, Doyle Brunson and Alan Meltzer, Standing: Tom Dwan, Phil Laak, David Peat, Mike Baxter and Dario Minieri at the taping of GSN’s High Stakes Poker at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino for the show’s highly anticipated upcoming fifth season.

I’m assuming Dan’s at the Golden Nugget watching the taping of day 1 of the latest season ofHigh Stakes Poker, but for those that want to know when it airs, Card Player is reporting that season 5 of HSP will air starting March 1 at 9pm ET on GSN. The network made a recent decision to make Sunday their “Poker Night”, with Season 6 of the World Poker Tour episodes at 6pm ET, and previous seasons of High Stakes Poker at 8pm ET. As mentioned before, the minimum buyin will be $200,000, with the blinds $400/$800 with a $200 ante. Last year’s taping of a $500,000 minimum buyin game last season appears to be gone, as it tightened up the play to the producers’ dismay.
