  • Poker News: Poker Night in America Gives Hint About Premier Date, Also Schedules Next Filming Date

    Tuesday, March 11th, 2014 by Ryan

It’s pretty amazing to think that it’s already mid-March, and that we’ve
seen a ton of poker action already played. We also get to look forward to
the World Series of Poker and many other massive poker tournaments coming
up very soon. One series that many people are anticipating though is
“Poker Night in America”, which should draw a ton of interest from poker
fans all over. While poker on television is being seen less and less, this
new series is going to get poker back on your televisions, and it’s going
to be in a very interesting way as well. Poker Night in America has
officially given us a hint at when their premier date will be, and they
also are getting prepared to tape their fourth episode of the series.

This new series that was created is going to follow the players around
throughout the entire tournament, to get every bit of feeling and emotion
that you’ll find from a poker player during the game. This means both the
good and the bad, but on top of that it will include more than just poker.
The show also talks about what activities that the poker pros do outside
of the game, and specifically what they do in their down time when they
aren’t looking to win big at the tables. It’s a series that is quite
different than anything we’ve seen, and the intrigue is definitely at a
high right now.

The creative consultant for Poker Night in America is the one who gave us
some additional information. His name is Nolan Dalla, and he took to his
own blog to talk about the show by saying that there’s “a lot of breaking
news ahead, including a major announcement coming up about when and where
the new show will air.” He also said that the debut show is going to “get
a lot of people talking.” They haven’t said what network that the show is
going to end up being aired on, but they have said that the show will be
aired on April 27th.

The news kept coming from Dalla too, as he said that Poker Night in America
is going to make a stop at the Maryland Live! Casino in Hanover. The event
that they are going to be covering will be the $1 million guaranteed prize
pool Main Event of the Maryland Live! Poker Classic. The tournament
features a $3,500 buy-in, and has two different Day Ones for players to
buy-in to. The first day of the event will be on March 21st, and the show
will be there until the end of the event, which is scheduled to end on
March 24th. The series itself starts on March 10th with other events.

Poker Night in America won’t just cover the Main Event though, as they are
going to watch some cash game action also. The cash games that they’ll be
covering will start on March 25th, and are going to feature big time
players, including a winner of the Main Event in Greg Merson. Merson will
be up against Matt Glantz, Gavin Smith, Christian Harder, Darvin Moon, and
Danielle Anderson. There will also be some other players who come to play
as well in the game that has a minimum buy-in of $5,000, and a max buy-in
of $20,000.

While this is the fourth stop of the series, we’ve seen huge names in the
other events as well. The first stop included names like Phil Laak, Smith,
Greg Mueller, Mike Matusow, Tom Schneider, Eli Elezra, and Layne Flack
playing in the 2013 Empire State Poker Classic Main Event at the Turning
Stone Casino and Resort. After the stop in New York, the action moves to
Reno, NV at the Peppermill Reno, and last but not least so far was the stop
in Pittsburgh, PA. This stop was back in November at the Rivers Casino,
and this event drew in the largest tournament prize pool of the history of
the casino.

The plan for 2014 was to get three tapings done, and while we know where
the first one will be held, we aren’t sure about the final two. Once the
information is released we’ll be sure to get it out to you though!
