Hustler Casino Live has announced it will be making poker history with a 24-hour live-stream scheduled for December 1.
After wooing the fans with a $1,000,000 buy-in cash game six months ago, Nick Vertucci and Ryan Feldman have turned the thermostat up even more and are planning to give us the show of a lifetime.
Will anybody be able to handle the entire 24 hours?
Feldman reckons it’s been a tough ask to put all of this together and he added that it’s doubtful anyone will play for the whole show.
“The plan will be to have a waitlist and have players on standby ready to come in on-call between certain hours as players bust or quit. It will be a lot of work logistically. Ideally, players will give me a warning when they’re thinking about leaving and I’ll have a backup ready to go.”
But you know, now that he’s said that no one is capable of doing it, somebody is going to try.
And why not? We’ve heard enough tales in the past that detail how private games can go on for more than a week without a proper break. Staying awake for only 24 hours shouldn’t be difficult, even taking into account the concentration required.
Who’s on the Roster?
At the time of writing, we still don’t have confirmation of who will be playing. That said, we should be able to guess at least some of the names.
Nik Airball, for one, is just the kind of guy who will fit in well for this episode.
DoorDash founder Stanley Tang is another expected to play, but the name that many are excited to learn they will be seeing after a six-month break is Alan Keating.
Keating, with his unpredictable playing style, is a massive viewers favourite and it will be great to see him return.
One X/Twitter poster ran a poll to see who should get an invite and the answer was overwhelmingly focused in one direction — squarely at Tom “durrrr” Dwan.
Could it happen? We’d like to think that there's a seat for durrrr if he wants it.
Another player scheduled to appear is Indian businessman Santhosh Survana. The high-stakes reg is making frequent appearances alongside his professional colleagues and starting to come to note.
His $1.86 million pot from the $1,000,000 Buy-in NLH Special Cash Game London certainly caught everyone’s attention.
