Filming of Two Poker Series Scheduled to Start at Golden Nugget

Both Shows Will Be Shot During November

Cameras are set to roll at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas to film two poker shows during November.

"High Stakes Poker," which will premiere on The Game Show Network in January, will be filmed in its entirety Nov. 2 to Nov. 4. Unlike most poker programming, this show isn't a tournament. Players, both professionals and very rich business executives, will play with $100,000 of their own money in a high-stakes ring game.

Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan, Jennifer Harman, Barry Greenstein and Phil Hellmuth, among others, are scheduled to appear. Taping of the show will be closed to the public.

From Nov. 9 to Nov. 16, taping of "Poker Superstars III" for Fox Sports Net will take place. Again, the taping is closed to the public. The shows will he shown starting beginning March 12. The 36-episode series will feature 24 of the world's greatest poker players, including Johnny Chan, Chris Ferguson, Todd Brunson, Phil Ivey, Phil Hellmuth, and Chris Moneymaker.

Henry Orenstein, who invented the famous holecard cam, is producing both shows.
