GSN to Extend Invite to 2006 WSOP Champion Jamie Gold to Play 'HIGH STAKES POKER' Next Season

Gold Could Take on Top Pros in the Only 'Cash Game' on Television

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 11 -- GSN is extending an invitation to Jamie Gold, who just won the 2006 World Series of Poker main event, to play in the next season of HIGH STAKES POKER on GSN.

Gold won over $12 million by outlasting over 8,000 players in the "World Series of Poker" main event. If he accepts the invitation, Gold will be taking on top professionals in a cash game where every player puts up $100,000 or more of their own money to play.

The third season of HIGH STAKES POKER will be taped in Las Vegas. The tape date, location and complete field of players will be announced later.

The second season of HIGH STAKES POKER is currently airing on GSN Monday nights at 9:00 PM ET. HIGH STAKES POKER is the first true cash game of poker on television with a $100,000 minimum buy-in. Unlike other poker tournament shows, where the most players can lose is their initial buy-in of $10,000. On GSN's HIGH STAKES POKER, players have at least $100,000 and often several hundreds of thousands of dollars of their own cash at stake.

The first two seasons have featured the top professionals in poker including Doyle Brunson, Daniel Negreanu, Barry Greenstein, Jennifer Harman, Gus Hansen, Antonio Esfandiari, Sam Farha, Ted Forrest, Mike Matusow, Phil Hellmuth, Phil Laak, Todd Brunson, Michael Mizrachi and Johnny Chan.

GSN, the Network for Games, is the only U.S. television network dedicated to game-related programming and interactive game playing. The network features game shows, reality series, documentaries and casino games. As the industry leader in interactivity, GSN features over 133 hours per week of interactive programming, which allows viewers a chance to win prizes by playing along with GSN's televised games via GSN.com.
