The newest poker show on US television, Poker Night in America, will record its next episodes from the Peppermill Reno Resort Spa Casino in Nevada.
The first stop for the new show was the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, NY. The event attracted celebrity poker pros such as: Mike “the Mouth” Matusow, Eli Elezra, Gavin Smith, Shaun Deeb, Phil Laak, and Layne Flack. Their presence along with the television production helped the Empire State Poker Classic achieve record attendance.
The Peppermill edition will also feature a tournament series as well as high stakes cash games, which will be filmed for television. The cash games will be No Limit Hold’em structured with buyins from $5k to $20k and blinds set at $25/$50.
The cash games are invitation only, but the producers have said that they will consider applications from any players who are prepared to buy in with their own money and meet the demanding filming schedule.
George Kisler, Director of Casino Operations at the Peppermill said: “Poker Night in America will bring some of the biggest names to Peppermill Reno for ten days of great tournament and live action games beginning on November 15th. We hope you will join us for the fun.”
