The wait is over — well, soon — as High Stakes Poker will return with the anticipated Season 10 in January 2023 on PokerGO.
Long-time fans of the show dating back to the Game Show Network era in the 2000s will be thrilled to know that many of the players they rooted for, and against, on High Stakes Poker will compete in Season 10 episodes. That list includes, but is not limited to, Daniel Negreanu, Doyle Brunson, Phil Hellmuth, and Tom “durrrr” Dwan.
High Stakes Poker first aired on GSN back in 2006 until 2011. PokerGO brought the show back for the first time in 2020 and has since been the home for one of poker’s most popular cash game shows of all-time.
Last year, many of the aforementioned old-school pros came to play, and some new faces such as Garrett Adelstein and Krish Menon joined the action for the first time.

What to Expect from High Stakes Poker Season 10
The exact date for the launch of Episode 1 hasn’t yet been announced, but PokerGO did mention in a press release that the premiere is slated for sometime in January 2023.
Last year, PokerGO released a new episode each Monday evening until late May. The upcoming weekly show day hasn’t yet been determined by PokerGO. In total, there were 14 episodes, and the season concluded in exciting fashion with Dwan tangling with DoorDash founder Stanley Tang in some big pots.
High Stakes Poker Season 9 Recaps
As is always the case with High Stakes Poker, the cash games will be played of the high stakes variety. The lowest blinds during the season will be at $200/$400. Last year, the blinds hit $500/$1,000 in some games, but that was usually just a starting point given the propensity of high rollers to straddle.
It won’t just be a number of old-school pros returning to action in Season 10. The long-time commentators — Gabe Kaplan and A.J. Benza — will return to the broadcast booth once again. Benza and Kaplan form one of the most iconic poker broadcast duos in history, right up there with Lon McEachern and Norman Chad, Ali Nejad and Nick Schulman, and Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten.
On top of those already mentioned, viewers can expect to see Patrik Antonius, Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Ivey, and many other familiar faces in action this winter on High Stakes Poker.
