• Poker Central Set for October Launch

    03 October 2015

    It's really interesting to see how poker has waxed and waned over the past decade and a half. The big poker boom started around 2003 when Chris Moneymaker took down the World Series of Poker, and it started to crash in late 2006 when the UIGEA cut the legs out from under the online poker market. It was further hammered in 2011 with the Black Friday event, but a new television channel shows that poker could be in the middle of a big comeback.

    Poker Central TV

    This new channel is Poker Central, a television network that shows poker-related programming around the clock. It's set for an October 1 launch, and they're looking to have their first big event on December 2, 2015 for the Super High Roller Bowl Cash Game. This event is set to include a number of really well-known pros that you might recognize from online poker rooms in a cash game setting where they'll have a $250,000 buy-in in a cash game format. Expected names include Doyle Brunson, Jennifer Tilly, Phil Ivey, Johnny Chan, Jean-Robert Bellande and others.

    Other Programming

    What's really awesome about this network is that they've made deals to show plenty of other programming. This includes the World Poker Tour Alpha 8, Poker After Dark, the Doubles Poker Championship, The Big Game, the Women's World Open and tons of other events. The highly-acclaimed High Stakes Poker cash game television show will also be shown, and that just goes to show that we'll now have virtually all of the major poker shows on the same network, and that's a huge step forward for players in this particular industry. There are also expected to be shows about poker strategy.

    Poker Growth

    It's hard to deny that poker has been growing for the past couple of years, but a lot of that growth seems to be of the nature of potential energy instead of kinetic energy. What we mean by this is that there's a ton of potential there for poker to explode again, and it keeps building up like pressure waiting to be relieved. If legislation in some key countries like the United States was to come through, then we could see the explosion of poker once again and the coming of a new poker boom. Until then, we'll just have to sit back and enjoy the new Poker Central TV network until something changes.
