The innovative high stakes poker cash game may have dealt its last hand in season 4. High Stakes Poker has not filmed a new season for 2008, which in previous years they already had filming done by May. Pokerati reports that there are most likely no plans to do a new season.

Here is what AJ Benza had to say about it:

Far as Gabe and I know….the show isnt coming back. Apparently…the network is going to go in a different direction and that aint good news for our show, especially since we skew a higher-aged audiuence. Never mind that we’re the network’s No. 1 show. Still and all, no one calls us from the network to say squat. Only Kevin Bellincoff checks in periodically, but it just don’t seem like good news. If you ask me…they’re treating us like shit. All we ever did was make them a bunch of money.

It will be interesting to get the official story from GSN. Who would have ever thought it would be a smart business move for any network to discontinue their highest rated show. Not that its saying much, there is only so many hours of Lingo one person can watch.
