The fireworks have been launched and the celebrations are over as 2021 is now upon us. The celebrations can continue over on PokerGO with new releases scheduled out for the entire month of January, with 17 new episodes of High Stakes Poker, Poker After Dark, and the World Series of Poker set to be released.

PokerGO Preview January

High Stakes Poker

The return of High Stakes Poker continues with Season 8 having aired the first three episodes of the new season to close out 2020. January will see the conclusion of the current line-up that includes Tom Dwan, Jean-Robert Bellande, Rick Salomon, and Bryn Kenney, before a new line-up takes a seat for three episodes and includes the High Stakes Poker debut of Sean Perry, Damien LeForbes, and John Andress.

Some big money is going to exchange hands, with multiple pots drifting into the high six-figure range, and the beloved commentary duo of Gabe Kaplan and A.J. Benza will be on the call to further enhance the action.

New episodes of High Stakes Poker are released every Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.

Poker After Dark

Season 12 of Poker After Dark opened with Cry Me a River week that featured Antonio Esfandiari, Alex Ding, Scott Ball, Andrew Sasson, Damien LeForbes, Justin Young, and Ben Lamb. The $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em game was full of action between all the players and included some incredible table banter and action – including this hand where Sasson looks to put the screws on Lamb with seven-deuce. Watch the hand play out here:

The Bratty Bunch week will take center stage for the month of January on Poker After Dark as Phil Hellmuth headlines the $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em game. Hellmuth is joined by his friends from Silicon Valley that include venture capitalists and entrepreneurs such as David Sacks, Jason Calacanis, Bill Gurley, Alan Keating, and Chamath Palihapitiya. This group of players has business ventures that include being involved with companies such as Facebook, Google, Slack, PayPal, Uber, SpaceX, Airbnb, Calm, GrubHub, Zillow, and many more.

And, of course, the dulcet tones of Ali Nejad are sure to provide great commentary for what will be an excellent series of shows.

New episodes of Poker After Dark are released every Monday at 8 p.m. ET.

World Series of Poker

The conclusion to PokerGO’s WSOP collection wraps up in January with episodes from three tournaments set to be released. The WSOP 2014 Big One for One Drop attracted 42 players who each put up the $1 million buy-in as Daniel Colman walked away with over $15.3 million in prize money and his first WSOP bracelet. The action is spread over six episodes and begins on Day 2 with just 31 players remaining before concluding with Daniel Negreanu falling short of his seventh WSOP bracelet in second-place to Colman.

There are also two episodes of the WSOP 2015 National Championship from Harrah’s Cherokee where the final table features Negreanu, Alex Masek, Darryll Fish, and Loni Harwood chasing the $341,599 first-place prize. Following this is the WSOP 2016 Global Casino Championship where the 126-entrant field is down to the final table where there is $343,256 awaiting the eventual winner.

New episodes of the WSOP are released every Tuesday and Friday at 12 p.m. ET.
