Last season during Poker After Dark season four we saw the very first two cash game formats in Poker After Dark history and well let me tell you they were a huge hit. Well it is now time for season five of Poker after Dark and the producers have decided to bring back more then just two weeks dedicated to the cash game format on Poker After Dark. Also it is being said that supposedly they are going to be having more cash game formats than the usual freeze out style sit-n-go where each player buys in for $20,000 and its then a winner take all tournament.
During this season you are going to see some new faces on Poker After Dark including online phenoms Taylor â€œGreenPlasticâ€ Caby , Cole â€œCTSâ€ South and David â€œRaptorâ€ Benefield. You will also be seeing Ilari â€œZiigmundâ€ Sahamies, Arnold Thimons, Bob Safai, John Phan, Kenny Tran, Max Pescatori, Dario Minieri and Ivan Demidov. There will also be some celebrities that will be making an appearance and they are Jason Alexander, Don Cheadle and Orel Hershiser.
