High Stakes Poker Has Become Brutal
Last night I watch High Stakes Poker for the first time since they have went over to the new format. OMG it was brutal. While I like Gabe Kaplan, he seriously needed AJ Benza there or some type of wingman. The banter that the two had back and forth was sorely missed.
Also, I don't see where adding Kara Scott brings anything to the program. The interviews are very generic and seem more of an interruption than and addition to the program. I have nothing against Kara as a commentator or an interviewer, but I don't think she fits into this program.
As far as the game, the game wasn't all that terribly exciting either, but that is the way poker goes sometimes. By the way, I am not a big fan of their new opening either. Too flashy and really doesn't capture the feel of the show. I would not be surprised to see the ratings actually start to drop for this program. Nobody wants to see High Stakes Poker After Dark.
