Poker News

Poker legend Phil Laak is set to appear on High Stakes Poker for the first time since 2011 when the 12th season of the popular show returns to PokerGO this spring. The high-stakes cash game series, set to premiere on February 19, will air 12 episodes on Mondays through May.

Laak will be joined in Season 12 by fellow headlining stars Andrew Robl, Jean-Robert Bellande, and Jennifer Tilly.

“There is nothing quite like High Stakes Poker,” said Mori Eskandani, President of PokerGO, in a press release about the new season. “We’ve seen some truly unforgettable moments through the first 11 seasons of High Stakes Poker, and you can believe me when I tell you that Season 12 will deliver many more phenomenal ones.”

High Stakes Poker originally aired in 2006, and Laak joined the show in the second season later that year. He appeared on a lineup in each season through its seventh, when the show went on hiatus in 2011. HSP was revived in 2020 and has taped several seasons since in the PokerGO Studio at ARIA in Las Vegas.

What’s in Store for Season 12

Robl and Santhosh Suvarna will appear in all 12 episodes, starting with a lineup that includes headliners Bellande and Tilly. They’ll be joined throughout the first two episodes by Justin Gavri, Vivian Yang, Andrew Pacheco, and Andrew Sasson.
