Only last week the 30th season of Survivor was wrapped up by CBS as Mike Holloway outplayed and outwitted the entire competition to pocket a cool $1 million winner’s prize. In the latest seasons there were no poker players but several Survivor/poker developments have taken place lately. If you recall you will remember Jean-Robert Bellande appearing in the 15th Season and so did Garret Adelstein after a few seasons.
Considering the frequent exchange between these two games, interest has been shown by Daniel Negreanu, to appear in Survivor, and the most famous Survivor in history “Boston” Rob Mariano, used to play poker often. PokerNews decided to look into some of the tidbits related to Survivor and poker as we thought it is worth.
It is rumored now that Anna Khait, poker player might come in to season 32 of Survivor. The Season 31 is yet to be filmed but Season 32 has already been canned, as is practice Survivor shoots two seasons simultaneously from one location. If you go with Martin Holmes, the survivor spoiler, and the one who also runs the Inside Survivor website, a poker player is going to be cast in the series.
Anna Khait, though not a big name in the poker circuit, has carved a niche for herself in the circuit and her biggest cash achievement was the 110th place prize of $3,035 at 2015 Borgata Poker Open $560 No-Limit Hold’em Deepstack. The Poker Tube correspondent hails from Russia originally but she had moved to the USA when she was very young. Earlier she had aspired to become a medical professional, but instead she opted to become a poker player.
According to Holmes Anna will be in Survivor: Koh Rong, which was shot from March to May 2015 where the competition will be Brawns vs. Brains vs. Beauty II. This would also mean that participants would be placed in three different tribes and it Is not know yet, where Anna will be placed.
