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.

    Yeah, bad decisions can bring down even the best starting hand.
