On the Set of the PokerStars.net Big Game 0001

The PokerStars.net Big Game is in Las Vegas filming new episodes for the fall, and we've got a sneak peek at some of the participants. PokerNews' own Tony G swung by for a little high-stakes poker action, as did Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Hellmuth, Issac Haxton, and Jason Mercier. Big Game hostess Amanda Leatherman was also there, interviewing the players and getting the inside scoop. Not all of us can be on the set to take it all in, and most of us are so impatient that we want a little sneak peek now. That's what we're giving you. Check out a day on the set of The Big Game.
