The long running High Stakes Poker was renewed for a 7th season that will begin taping November 18th. The details of when GSN will air season 7 have tet to be announced.

The GSN show saw an increase in ratings after season 6, which introduced a number of changes. Co-host A.J. Benza was replaced by PartyPoker pro Kara Scott who focused on conducting interviews with the players while Gabe Kaplan handled all the play by play and commentary responsibilities. Prop bets were also replaced  by a greater focus on poker and the banter amongst the well known high stakes poker players.

No word yet on who will play in Season 7, but five players have appeared in each season and we would expect them to return again: Doyle Brunson, Eli Elezra, Antonio Esfandiari, Barry Greenstein and Daniel Negreanu. It would also seem a given that cash game beasts Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan and Patrik Antonius will be back again along with a few new faces to spice up the lineup.  It will be interesting to see what changes come in Season 7 in response to other shows like PokerStar led Big Game airing now.
