POKER PROductions released details of season 4, which will start airing in July. Some excerpts:
...the filming of the 4th season of NBC’s hit late-night program Poker After Dark will conclude on Friday, April 18 in Las Vegas. Ten new episodes will be aired beginning in July...
Perhaps the biggest change to PAD4 will be the introduction of two new formats. All shows in the past have been 6-player winner-take-all freezeouts, but that won’t be the case this season. Viewers will now also be able to witness heads-up play and cash games on Poker After Dark...
One week will feature a double elimination heads-up battle between the four winners of NBC’s National Heads-Up Poker Championship; Phil Hellmuth, Ted Forrest, Paul Wasicka, and Chris Ferguson, who will put up $50,000 each and compete for the $200,000 winner-take-all prize.
Also, look for two weeks of a $200/$400 no-limit hold’em cash game to be aired next season. The 12 players participating will be Howard Lederer, Dee Tiller, Gabe Kaplan, Patrik Antonius, Doyle Brunson, and Eli Elezra during one week, and Guy Laliberte, Phil Hellmuth, Tom Dwan, Allen Cunningham, Mike Baxter, and Antonio Esfandiari in the other.
One of their many match "themes" will be:
“Nets vs. Vets,” a match featuring three highly successful young Internet players in Tom “drrrr” Dwan, Brian “sbrugby” Townsend, and Andrew “good2cu” Robl against veteran pros and former World Champions Doyle Brunson, Johnny Chan, and Huck Seed.
