Garrett Adelstein DONATES $135K After Apologizing To Robbi Lew?


We do believe in coincidences, but a puzzling turn of events makes us think hard, really heard. What are we talking about? Well, Garrett Adelstein who became talk of the town all thanks to Robbi Lew’s hero call holding J4o, has donated $135K to charity. So what if he donated money? Many people do! Yes, sure. But the sum Adelstein donated is the exact same amount he lost and then took back from Lew in that bizarre hand that shook the poker world.

Garrett Adelstein’s call for donation

The high-stakes pro shared a post on his Twitter account wherein he urged followers to donate money to the Big Brother, Big Sister of Los Angeles organization. He wrote, “I’d like to have this spotlight that’s been thrust upon me applied to something better. Please join me in donating to Big Brother, Big Sister of Los Angeles.” But this call for donation turned into a total drama when Twitterati saw the sum he donated. It was the exact same amount he lost and took back from Lew and termed her a cheater all at the same time.

Garrett Adelstein’s official statement

An official statement reportedly given out by Adelstein reads the pro apologizing to Lew but only after calling her a ‘relatively unknown female amateur.’ He writes about being caught off guard by her play. The pro revealed how publicly demanding the money back from Lew (after openly accusing her of being a cheater) was the most ’embarrassing’ part of the whole incident. Adelstein states how he deeply regrets taking the money back (whether it was won by Robbi Lew legitimately or illegitimately). 

But the fact that Adelstein chose to donate that money instead of giving it back to Robbi led to a whole new war of opinions on Twitter. Many users even advised Adelstein of letting a legal team look into the matter rather than posting about donating money to a charitable cause.

The Lew-Adelstein incident has divided the global poker community with varied perspectives popping up all over social media. Hustler Casino Live has issued a statement saying an investigation will be conducted which could possibly include a polygraph test. The results of the investigation are awaited. But, will the matter be settled after the findings of the case are out?
