Another day and another crazy hand by Kevin Hart. Is this real life? Nope, it's another installment of the PokerStars Championship Cash Challenge. The third episode of this new series is available for your viewing pleasure. You get to watch an amateur play in a high-stakes cash game against four pros and an uber-donk Hollyweird celeb. The format at the PokerStars Championship Cash Challenge was simple: 150 hands at €25/€50 stakes with a minimum buy-in of €10K and table max at €25K. They played pot-limit preflop and no-limit post flop. The challenger kept whatever they had at the end of the 150 hands. Mila Monroe started with €12.5K.
The first two episodes featured challenger Mila Monroe from Germany as she battled comedian/actor Kevin Hart, Faraz Jaka, Daniel Negreanu, Liv oeree, and Charlie Carrel. Kevin Hart kept everything loose and fun. Who woulda thunk that Daniel Negreanu would not be the chatterbox at the table? Danny Boy could not get an edge in word wise. The two Brits at the table, Boeree and Carrel, were too polite to butt-in.
Going into the third episode of the PokerStars Championship Cash Challenge, challenger Mila Monroe was up €7.2K. Kid Poker and Faraz Jaka were the only players with significant gains. Both were up approximately €13K. British psychonaut Charlie Carrell took the biggest hit and he's down €25K. And how about Kevin Hart? Despite all the shenanigans, the generous table clown up €1K.
Kevin Hart made a crazy play and you'd have to watch the video to see what happened yourself. King-high? Yoinks! It was indiscernible, indescribable, and cringeworthy. The hand made me wish I had a couple million to burn to play Kevin Hart heads-up. I want a juicy cut of his Ride Along 2 paycheck. Universal shelled out millions for Hart to return in the sequel. It didn't do so hot domestically, but crushed internationally. You know Hart had points on the back end, so he's got oodles of U-cash to burn at the tables.
