Unaired Poker After Dark Episodes to be Shown June 4 to June 16

Starting on Monday, June 4, two weeks of new episodes of the poker television series "Poker After Dark" will air on the NBC Sports Network. We probably should put the word "new" in quotation marks, as the two weeks of episodes in question were actually filmed in 2010 at the Aria in Las Vegas, but have never hit airwaves. The six contestants include David "Viffer" Peat, Eli Elezra, David Oppenheim, Patrik Antonius, Phil Ivey, and Tom durrrr Dwan.

"Poker After Dark" formerly aired on the NBC mother ship late nights during the week and featured a Full Tilt Poker sponsorship. Whether any Full Tilt Poker logos on players' clothing will be blurred out remains to be seen given the episodes have never aired, but what we do know is that the blinds will be $400/$800, with the button anteing $1,000 each hand. A promotional image made available to PocketFives showed Elezra, Antonius, and Ivey all wearing Full Tilt logos

wpt poker videoThe World Poker Tour (WPT) released the 2012 portion of next season’s schedule Wednesday, touting its expanded international selection of tournaments. Season XI will begin in August after taking a break following the Season X-ending WPT World Championship at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, which starts this weekend.

The first two events on the schedule are new venues to the World Poker Tour. The Merit-Grand Casino will serve as host to the WPT Merit Cyprus Classic August 4-9. Players who want to compete in the season opener and then turn around and play in the next event will have to hop on a plane quickly, as the WPT Parx Open Poker Classic will begin August 10th at the Parx Casino in Bensalem, Pennsylvania.

Two of the later stops in 2012 are also new. WPT Copenhagen will be held November 12-17 at Denmark’s Casino Copenhagen, followed less than two weeks later by WPT Mazagan at the Mazagan Casino, Mazagan Beach, and Golf Resort in Morocco November 26-December 1.


PartyPoker Premiere League V Field Set

There is still one more qualifier to determine, but the lineup of those buying in directly has been set and the cards are ready to fly in a couple days at the Montesino Casino in Vienna.

We say “mini” event only because there will be just 16 players competing. But with a $125,000 buy-in, it is anything but a small deal. The format will be slightly different from last year, when David Benyamine won the event and the $476,000 first prize.


Poker After Dark Set to Return on March 5

  • PDF

poker videosAccording to various reports, including one at Wicked Chops Insider, Poker After Dark, will be returning to television. NBC Sports Network, previously known as Versus, will air five weeks (24 episodes) worth of unaired episodes, including four weeks of a cash game and one week (six episodes) of a sit-n-go.

The shows, primarily shot in December of 2010, were produced by Poker PROductions. After the new episodes air, NBC Sports Network plans to broadcast reruns of PAD, though the rumor mill is already churning about the possibility of new episodes if a sponsor can be secured.

Although a press release has yet to be released, Poker PROductions retweeted Kevin "Kevmath" Mathers, confirming the reports.

WPT Releases Season X Television Schedule

The season, which will once again be broadcast on Fox Sports Net (FSN), will consist of 37 episodes, up 11 from Season IX. Part of the change is an increase in the number of episodes per tournament; the story of each tour stop will now be told across three episodes instead of just two. Strong ratings were likely another catalyst for the added episodes, as ratings increased 30 percent from Season VIII to Season IX.
