Lineup Announced for $1 Million Cash Poker Game on Hustler Casino Live

3 min read

A dozen players confirmed they will buy-in for a minimum of $1 million as part of the largest live-streamed poker game in history next month. The Million Dollar Game will be a three-day spectacle on Hustler Casino Live that takes place May 27-29. Featuring a group of players with egos as deep and wide as their pockets, it’s guaranteed to attract thousands and thousands of viewers.

On each of the days, Hustler Casino Live will stream at least 10 hours of play. Blinds will be $500/1,000 with a $1,000 big blind ante, but this isn’t a group that shies away from straddles, so expect the game to play even higher. It’s not like the players are worried about the money.

The men behind the stacks

Newly-minted WPT Ambassador Ethan “Rampage” Yau will be a fan-favorite going into this game. He’s proven his poker skills by grinding his way up from the lowest stakes, and fans will have an even bigger reason to root for him: Yau plans to sell some of his action on StakeKings.

No high-stakes game in the last year or so would be complete without casino chain owner Eric Persson, a bonafide poker bully who has taken his share of beats.

Another man with a seemingness endless amount of money to burn is “Blank Check” Ben Lee, an investment banker, high-stakes aficionado and Hustler Casino Live regular.

Brandon Steven, a car dealership owner (19 of them!) from Kansas with more than $6 million in tourney cashes, will also play. Steven was the runner-up in the $250,000 High Roller event at last year’s World Series of Poker.  He won more than two buy-ins ($2.8 million).

Mark Radoja, known on streams as Double M, is a hedge fund manager. A two-time WSOP bracelet winner, he’ll also sit with $1 million.

Former PartyPoker executive Rob Yong will show off his high-stakes poker experience in this game, which will be his streaming debut.

Of course no poker stream would be worth its salt without Nikhil “Nik Airball” Arcot, the walking mouth with a huge bankroll who is currently in a heads-up grudge match with Matt Berkey.

Door Dash founder and Hustler Live Casino regular Stanley Tang will bring some of the money he earned by underpaying his contracted delivery drivers to the game.

Justyn Howard, co-founded social media management firm Sprout Social, is another whale who is bringing his stack to this game. Another Hustler Casino Live regular, “JR” is a poker neophyte cutting his poker teeth in nose-bleeds.

Billionaire Chamath Palihapitiya, a poker fanatic who co-hosts the All-in Podcast, will sit for at least one day in this game. He might be the richest player of the group. The venture capitalist was one of the first senior executives at Facebook.

Mikki Mase, a self-described baccarat professional, will also sit. The American Reporter claims his net worth is $10 million.

Rounding out the dozen is “Prince Charles,” another mysterious super-rich dude who is a regular on Hustler Casino Live.

The lineup is bound to change with more players added as it gets closer to the dates. Keep your eye on Cardschat for updates.
