Fans of poker should watch Game Show Network's latest season of High Stakes Poker because it shows them a different form of the game, it has been suggested.

According to producer Mori Eskandani, there are numerous televised tournaments, but High Stakes Poker is one of the few places amateur gamers can watch poker pros compete in cash games.

He described it as "poker at its highest level", adding that it also provides a great deal of entertainment.

Mr Eskandani commented: "You will learn a lot watching tournaments as well, but High Stakes Poker is a different kind of poker you're learning."

He said that listening to the "jabber" of gamers and watching what they try to get out of each other is "genius".

While there has been a minimum buy-in of $100,000 in the past, High Stakes Poker has seen some gamers put as much as $1 million on the line.

Brad Booth and four-time World Series of Poker bracelet winner Daniel Negreanu did this in seasons three and one respectively.
