Poker Night in America Announces Third Stop at Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh

Poker Night in America

On Nov. 21, Poker Night in America will make its third stop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Pittsburgh Poker Open Winter Series is scheduled for Nov 21 through Dec. 2 at the Rivers Casino, and PNIA is billing it as the “first major televised tournament ever in the Pittsburgh area.”

The 28-event festival is highlighted by a $1,100 buy-in main event with $75,000 guaranteed. The main event includes two starting flights starting on Nov. 29, and will conclude with a televised final table on Dec. 2. For the full schedule, click here.

On Dec. 3, PNIA will host a high-stakes cash game, which will be filmed for television and streamed on a delay. The $25/$50 game will feature a minimum buy-in of $5,000 and a maximum buy-in of $20,000. Players who are interested in playing in the game can contact Nolan Dalla at nolan@pokernight.com.

PNIA debuted in August 2013 at Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York, and the second stop will take place Nov. 15-25 at Peppermill Resort-Spa-Casino in Reno, Nevada.

2009 World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe Cada, his runner-up Darvin Moon, and 2004 WSOP Main Event champion Greg Raymer will be in attendance. Other professionals, including Mike “The Mouth” Matusow, Eli Elezra, Gavin Smith, Shaun Deeb, Shawn Buchanan, Tom Schneider, Matt Glantz, Phil Laak, David Williams, Layne Flack, and Jennifer Harman played in New York, but none of them have been confirmed for the event in Pittsburgh.

Our own Kristy Arnett participated in the cash game in Verona, and documented here experiences here.

    GregDude — As far as we know, no they don't yet. From everything I've come to understand, this show would be great if a network picks it up, so hopefully that happens.

    PNIA still doesn't have a TV contract to broadcast their tournaments, correct?
