The highly anticipated TV show is quickly moving from coast to coast and its next stop will be Peppermill Reno Resort Spa Casino in Nevada. Those who are behind this latest poker show plan on bringing together some of the most prominent poker professionals. So far they did a brilliant job by attracting players such as Eli Elezra, Shaun Deeb, Mike Matusow, Layne Flack and Phil Laak.
Not only are these among the most popular poker pros, but also some that feel great in front of the cameras and this is an asset for a poker show. When announced, Poker Night in America caused ripples among the members of the poker community who looked forward for the opening event. This took place on the East Coast, with the aforementioned poker players boarded the same plane and in a matter of hours they were already competing at cash games and tournaments.
The success of the Empire State Poker Classic exceeded expectations and there is no reason to expect the Peppermill edition to be any different. Those who will watch the live action at Peppermill Reno Resort Spa Casino in Nevada will see their favourite poker professionals compete in both tournaments and cash game tables. The tournament series is the highlight of the TV show, but for the poker players themselves, the cash game looks more attractive as the buy-ins range from $5000-$20,000.
Given the hype surrounding Poker Night in America and the opportunities of winning big money, it is expected that the TV show will also attract other poker pros. There are plenty who would find it worthwhile to compete in games with blinds of $25/$50, but at least for the time being they don’t have the option of buying in. Although the producers told the media that the cash games are invitation only, they said that those interested should submit applications.
In order to be accepted and earn a seat at the Peppermill Reno Resort Spa Casino in Nevada, players will have to pay the buy-in out of pocket. Even more important is for those interested to be willing to comply with the filming schedule which is expected to start well before November 15. This is the date chosen by the Director of Casino Operations at the Peppermill to mark the beginning of the Nevada event, which will come to an end 10 days later, on November 25.
