The best cash game of no-limit Texas Hold’em on television, High Stakes Poker (HSP), will tape its fourth season at the South Point casino in May it was announced last week by Rich Cronin, president and CEO of GSN.

High Stakes Poker continues to grow every season making it GSN’s No. 1 rated program for men and adults 18-34.

"We are very pleased with the success of High Stakes Poker and the tremendous buzz it has generated," said Cronin. "It is far and away the most talked about poker show. We plan on making HSP 4 the richest season yet with players bringing up to a million dollars of their own money to play in the biggest cash game on TV."

In May, HSP will be returning to the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa in Las Vegas to tape its fourth season that will be premiering in the fall.

The shows producers and consultants Mori Eskandani and Eric Drache are lining up the richest cash game ever on television.

During the third season Brad Booth brought a million dollars and at times there was over four million dollars on the table.

The third season of High Stakes Poker has featured a star-studded line-up that began with the 2006 World Series of Poker champion Jamie Gold and is concluding with Phil Ivey, perhaps the best high-stakes cash game poker player, appearing on the show.

The final episode of the third season was broadcast on Monday, April 9 at 9 PM ET. Encore showings of the entire third season will begin the following Monday, April 16 at 9 PM.

High Stakes Poker continues to be among the most downloaded podcasts on GSN.com and iTunes with over 350,000 views. The podcasts continue to feature additional highlights, interviews and outtakes of season three.
