Watch Episode 1 of High Stakes Poker here (if you haven’t seen it somewhere else already)

Valentine’s Day was the debut of season 6 of GSN’s most popular show, High Stakes Poker. AJ Benza is no longer on the show, replaced by Kara Scott to provide some player interviews, leaving Gabe Kaplan to provide commentary solo. This would have been up earlier if GSN decided to put the full episode on Youtube, but they decided to only put it up on their own site.

    It looks almost funny seeing Kaplan standing alone, with a notable blank space next to him.

    no prop bets either … interesting.

    The no prop bet thing was surely done so as not to confuse the casual people. For this week’s episode, they used that same shot, eventually moving focus to Gabe. It was also a pretty boring episode, so you’ve been warned.

    I’m thinking because they didn’t want to take away from the importance of the poker. Prop bets made it seem like they didn’t care as much. Good move, imho.

    Also, can’t fault them for not putting the show on youtube when they still make it embeddable via their own site. if they make us wait a little bit, fair enough … even though i’m watching the show for the first time a week after the fact.

    Re: embedding

    I agree, but I didn’t even find this until Saturday, so have no idea when they decided to put it up on their site, or announce it was on their site.
