More Information on Poker Night Live
During the dates of March 20th to a whole 20 weeks later, CBS Sports Network will air the action from 10pm every Tuesday night so that you don’t have an excuse to miss any of the highlights from Poker Night in America. Where will the poker be played, well the Gardens Casino in Los Angeles, California will be the home for the set and hopefully, will even feel like yours as well by the end of the long few months.
Poker Night in Action will be showcasing live cash games where the buy-in will begin below the point of $25 or $50 as many fans are accustomed to. The main reason for this is to enable the celebrity guests who are playing the opportunity to have a go, without ruining themselves in seconds. The addition of celebrities will not only appeal to a larger audience, but ensure that the fun and excitement of PNIA comes across to the viewers. And as the President of Rush Street Productions, Todd Anderson reminded us, absolutely anything can happen when it comes to live television productions.
Solomon ‘Hashtag King’ Ponte last made an appearance on the show, and it was not very well received. During the live show, he proceeded to burn imaginary cigarette holes into the hearts of Shaun Deeb and Shaun’s wife. This led the poker world to rightly shun him.
But time has passed, the very first celebrity since to go onto PNIA is Joe Stapleton; and Joe wasn’t necessarily there for the money. Joe Stapleton is actually on the show as someone who will be taking a seat at the poker tables and provide conversation, interaction and laughs. Hopefully, this will create the right atmosphere for somebody to get really lucky while sitting at the table, who knows what will happen tune in on Tuesday at 10pm from the 20th of March to find out.
