Kara Scott to replace AJ Benza on High Stakes Poker?

by , Oct 26, 2009 | 7:37 pm

In an interview Sunday on Mediocre Poker Radio from WJFK in Washington DC, AJ Benza said Kara Scott will be his replacement when taping resumes in November. Kara is best known in the US from her cashes in the past two World Series of Poker Main Events, gaining the affection of Norman Chad in the process. She was also the presenter of the European Poker Tour for the first five seasons, before moving over to Matchroom Sport to present in their made-for-TV tournaments in the UK. An article at Pokernewsdaily.com, which mentions the Benza interview, only confirms that Shana Hiatt will not take part in the show and that no contract has been signed in regards to AJ’s replacement.

More details to come…

    Hmm, the Poker Edge … I think I’ve heard of that.

    So were you just speculating wildly, or did you have some inside scoop? I’m still not sure I’m buying Kara Scott.

    Well Vanessa Rousso and Shana Hiatt have said they’re not going to be the co-host.

    Dan — I know something. I’m not sure if its relevant to the discussion regarding HSP, but it pretty much made my mind up on who it was going to be.

    I’ll let you know the reasons in any case soon

  5. Kevin Mathers

    Besides the fact that PokerStars is sponsoring this year’s HSP?

  6. Andrew

    Yes, besides that.

    Tell me now … go ahead, just whisper it in my ear.
