GSN has greenlighted a fourth season of "High Stakes Poker."

Season 4 of the show, which features no-limit Texas Hold 'Em, will tape at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa in Las Vegas in May for a fall premiere.

"We are very pleased with the success of 'High Stakes Poker' and the tremendous buzz it has generated," GSN president and CEO Rich Cronin said, adding that "we plan on making 'HSP 4' the richest season yet, with players bringing up to $1 million of their own money to play in the biggest cash game on TV."

"HSP" is GSN's top-rated program with men and adults 18-34. The third-season finale is set to air at 9 p.m. Monday, featuring such players as Phil Ivey, Daniel Negreanu, Antonio Esfandiari and Brad Booth.

Henry Orenstein is executive producer of "HSP," and Mori Eskandani and Eric Drache are event organizers/consultants.
