Poker Central Debuts Two New Subscription Poker Shows

Poker Central Debuts Two New Subscription Poker Shows

This seems like as good of a time as ever to introduce new online shows for the poker community. As people around the United States – and around the world – remain under some form of quarantine to protect against the coronavirus pandemic, Poker Central is premiering two new shows this week.

The first show, Run It Back with Remko, premiered last night on March 26. The other, The Championship Run, will debut tonight, March 27.

Both shows require a subscription to PokerGO to view.

Run It Back with Remko

Most people know Remko Rinkema from his many years as a poker reporter, writer, and commentator. His pass for the game has long been evident in every one of his endeavors in the poker business. He has now been with Poker Central since September 2016. Though his official title is Senior Editor, he wears many hats at the company, hosting podcasts, commentating on poker tournaments, and now…hosting his own poker show.

Run It Back with Remko is a live show that will run in a live streaming format each Thursday evening at 7pm ET. As mentioned, it began on Thursday, March 26.

Remko will recruit a poker personality to sit with him and newly commentate on some of poker’s most memorable poker shows. These will include the likes of High Stakes Poker and Poker After Dark.

The premiere of the show last night featured Daniel Negreanu, who took to the commentary desk with Remko to provide fresh voices for a classic show. They chose the tenth episode of Season 1 of High Stakes Poker.

It is likely that Run It Back with Remko will eventually use a studio from which Remko and his guests will provide commentary, but due to coronavirus limitations, everyone is using video chats to do the shows for the foreseeable future.

As a side note, Remko noted that the entirety of Season 1 of High Stakes Poker is now available for PokerGO subscribers, and Poker Central will release Season 2 next Monday.

The Championship Run

The second show announced this week will premiere tonight, March 27. From that point, The Championship Run will be available on demand for PokerGO subscribers beginning at noon ET today.

PokerGO host Jeff Platt will host this show that will cover important and memorable hands that led to victory in poker tournaments. Platt has become very well-known for his poker tournament commentary and reporting, as well as for hosting other shows on PokerGO.

Platt took the opportunity to feature Chris Moneymaker’s famous World Series of Poker Main Event win for the first episode. He will analyze Moneymaker’s run through the WSOP Main Event in 2003, which led to a victory that created the “poker boom.” (Some even refer to this as the Moneymaker Effect.)

PokerGO Shows

Poker Central works hand-in-hand with PokerGO to offer all of its shows and content to subscribers.

President Sampson Simmons noted, “Poker players and fans are hungrier for content than ever before, especially in a time when we are all seeking entertainment from the safety of our homes. These two series celebrate some of the most compelling moments in the game’s history coupled with present-day poker insight and analysis. Our go is to bring the spirit of the game to our viewers at home.”

Anyone can subscribe to the channel for $10 per month, or they can take advantage of the discount by paying $99 for an annual pass. This reduces the price to $8.25 per month.

In light of the quarantines or stay-at-home orders for many poker fans around the world right now, PokerGO is offering a free 30-day subscription. Customers need only use the code “WATCHPARTY” on the checkout screen.
