The fever of gigantic buy-ins, which has created a whole industry in live poker around the Super High Rollers, also reaches the cash game.
Two of the most ambitious proposals in the creation of audiovisual content about poker, the production company PokerGO and the team in charge of Hustler Casino Live, have coincided two announcements about two millionaire games that aspire to beat all the audience records on the Internet.
Hustler Casino Live is a weekly broadcast that broadcasts a cash game from the Los Angeles casino of the same name. It is the program that pitted Phil Hellmuth and Tom Dwan against the most famous US streamers such as MrBeast, Ninja or Alexandra Botez.
That telecast, which obtained spectacular tracking figures, is the reference they want to surpass with the announcement of a NL100000 game that will have a minimum buy-in of $1,000,000.
Ryan Feldman, co-producer of the show, has not confirmed which of the regular Friday players will be part of the lineup. Alan Keating, a crowd favorite, “is a superstar and we’d like him to be on each and every special show we put on. We’re confident he’ll be on this one.”
The colorful owner of several casinos and a regular on the telecasts from Los Angeles Eric Persson is another clear candidate who is not yet confirmed for the million-dollar HCL game.
However, he has given his word that he will be in the $1,000,000 buy-in game that will be part of PokerGO’s No Gamble, No Future series.
This event has all its details outlined and finalized. It is a must, as the broadcast of the program is scheduled for February 17th, and it will be free of charge through PokerGO’s Youtube channel.

The players will be Patrik Antonius, Rob Yong, Rick Salomon, Andrew Robl, Eric Persson and MJ Gonzales.
The two games are going to use scalable blinds. The players will determine the price of each hand through straddles and commonly agreed blind raises.
It is clear that these games will result in stratospheric pots, and that they will be a spectacle for any fan.
