What's The Verdict For High Stakes Poker Season 6?

After watching the first few episodes of GSN’s High Stakes Poker Season 6, I can honestly say I haven’t derived anywhere near the same levels of expectation and enjoyment that the previous series had to offer.
In a risky departure from having a two commentator set-up, which has always been the traditionally tried and tested approach to presenting a poker show, for some reason GSN decided to change their winning formula and try a one person commentary approach.
Despite enjoying Gabe Kaplan’s commentary and being treated to an incredible poker pro line-up, I have to admit my interest has waned terribly as I attempt to follow the action while listening to Gabe fill the shoes of two men.
A major feature of the previous High Stakes Poker series was the lift the show received from the playful banter between co-hosts Gabe Kaplan and A.J. Benza, which helped focus the viewers interest on the action. However, having just one presenter seems to have slowed the whole pace of the show down to a snail’s crawl as Gabe’s words bounce around the hollow commentary box. 
Commenting on High Stakes Poker Season 6, ex-co host A.J. Benza said: “I know that the ratings aren’t what they were. It doesn’t mean that I’m the best guy to have in your poker studio, but it means that Gabe and I had a chemistry that worked..He’s one of the best commentators of our time and I’m lucky to have been with him for five seasons. I missed that most of all – we had a lot of chemistry from being from the same neighborhood in Brooklyn.”
With this week’s episode a little short on action after a cautious approach by the players, and half of the hour long show devoted to agreeing terms for a vegetarian prop bet which was finally accepted by Phil Ivey, I am left hoping that something might happen soon that will help put the show back on the right track once more.
It would be interesting to hear what fans of the show are making of High Stakes Poker Season 6 so far.
