I found out today that we have been granted access to the filming of High Stakes Poker Season 7 in Las Vegas from November 18th – 20th. I’m pretty excited about this for several reasons. First and foremost, I think it will be great content for one of our sites, Poker News Daily. Videos and articles, with not only the players, but the entire filming process of HSP will get a lot of attention. They are the types of things people would be really interested in and link to which is great for SEO.
I’m also interested in this on a personal level too though. It’s not because I want to meet the players on HSP, but rather see the process of them filming it. I’ve met just about every player that plays on HSP over the past 6 years. Being in the online poker affiliate industry and meeting players goes hand in hand. What I haven’t done is witness a taping of a TV show quite like this. It’s a little known fact that I used to own a significant portion of the Canadian Poker Tour, so I’ve been to tapings of events like the CPT or even WPT. However, those aren’t shows that I really have a personal interest in. I mean, I couldn’t even tell you the last time I watched an episode of the WPT. However, I’m kind of like my dog is with his tennis ball when a new episode of HSP comes out.
I think it will be a lot of fun being at the tapings next month and I will report back as I know more about exactly what our role will be there. From what I understand it will be total access, so it should be awesome. I’m also assuming it will get boring after a while too though. I mean, it’s just not that exciting simply watching people play poker. I’ll bring my iPad and / or laptop to help pass the time. It should make for excellent content though and as they say in the SEO world – “content is king”.
