Season Seven of Poker After Dark Debuts Monday Night on NBC
First Episode Features Stellar Lineup and $100,000 Buy In
The seventh season of Poker After Dark kicks off Monday night on NBC and viewers are in for a treat. The usual $20,000 buy-in has been increased to $100,000, which means that the winner will take home a $500,000 profit when all is said and done.
The episodes of this high-stakes winner-take-all freezeout will air at 2:05 a.m. beginning Monday and will continue for five consecutive nights in the same time slot. The “director’s cut” of the program will recap all of the week’s action late Saturday night at 1:00 a.m. after the conclusion of Saturday Night Live.
Both Ivey and Juanda already have two Poker After Dark titles each, but the other four players are still searching for their first. Lindgren and Seed have had a few opportunities, but Galfond is making his first ever appearance on the show. Dwan has appeared several times, but most of his action has come during cash game sessions. In fact, this will be only the second freezeout he has participated in.
The six players should make for one of the most exciting weeks in the show’s history as they combine for 18 World Series of Poker bracelets and over $42 million in tournament earnings.
