'High Stakes Poker' New Hostess Named As Kara Scott

It would seem that the rumours which started circulating concerning AJ Benza’s replacement on GSN’s hit show ‘High Stakes Poker’ might finally be laid to rest as it was announced today on Pokernews.com that Kara Scott would be the new co-presenter on the show.
Kara certainly has the experience to take on the role having spent a great deal of her working life in and around the industry. In 2005 Kara was the host of a series called ‘High Stakes Backgammon’ and also hosted the “World Series of Backgammon” in 2006.
However, poker is where Kara’s heart lies and she soon became the main host of tv show “Poker Night Live” whilst also writing articles for ‘Flush’ magazine and ‘Poker Player Magazine.’ In 2007/08 Kara hosted the European Poker Tour but after a 104th place finish at the 2008 World Series of Poker (WSOP) $10,000 buy-in Main Event for $41,816 Kara announced she would be leaving the show she was then working on, Sky Poker on the Sky Television channel, to concentrate on a career as a poker professional.
The following year, at the 2009 WSOP, Kara Scott finished 238th at the same event for $32,963 and in so doing became only the second woman ever to cash at consecutive WSOP Main Events.
Kara has enjoyed success in her poker career having earned  $537,797 from live tournament wins including her biggest victory to date, a second place finish at the 2009 Irish Open for an impressive $443,594 pay day. Following that win Kara commented:
“I know a lot of people don’t think I can play and there are always going to be people who say I can’t. But I have made the final of a female championship, I won a Sports Star Challenge, I went deep in the World Series of Poker Main Event and now I’ve come second in the Irish Open.I think my game is improving.”
We wish Kara all success in her new role of ‘High Stakes Poker’ co-presenter.
