After a considerable stretch of dead air, the PokerStars.net Big Game is set to return to television with all new episodes. Known for its exciting mix of amateur and pro players, the Big Game will continue to air at its regular time of 3 AM ET.

The lineup for this week’s game consists of Antonio Esfandiari, David “Viffer” Peat, Chau Giang, Barry Greenstein, Rick Rahim, and loose cannon Troy Howard. The final episode of this session will air tonight (August 13, 3AM EST). So far, Peat has proved to be the most aggressive player, winning 27.5% of the hands in which he’s played. He’s been slightly outclassed, however, by Rick Rahim, who has won an a table-high 30.4%. Barry Greenstein remains the biggest winner, with a stack hovering around the $200,000 mark.

While we may have missed out on a chunk of this particular session, there are several more to come. Look for new episodes to air from the 16th – 20th, 23rd – 27th, and 30th to September 3rd.
