Poker After Dark is a reality gambling poker game show.
The Poker After Dark format featured an "intimate look at one table as it develops over the week." Blinds start at $100/$200 and slowly escalate.
Commentator Ali Nejad's commentary is limited, allowing viewers to hear much of the table talk among the players, all of whom are miked.
(The table talk occasionally reveals that the "week-long" series is taped in one long session.) The series was originally structured as a series of week-long No Limit Texas hold 'em mini-tournaments for six top poker professionals.
Each week the players vied for a $120,000 winner-takes-all prize pool, with each paying a $20,000 buy-in.
By the end of the fifth show, a winner is determined.
