Hustler Casino Live is all set to make history on 1st December 2023, with the platform all set to host a first-ever 24-hour poker live stream. It is worth noting that this 24-hour live stream will take place on the final day of Alan Keating’s return on Hustler Casino Live.
Keating made a return to the popular poker show for the first time since May 2023. Known for his loose, unpredictable style of play, Keating is a fan favourite who is all set to return to action on 27th November 2023. He will be playing for the first of five days of high-stakes poker games across $100/$200 stakes and a $100,000 minimum buy-in.
Hustler Casino Live has hosted numerous marathon sessions in the past but has never held a day-long live stream. In August 2022, Hustler Casino’s Friday night show turned into a Saturday morning breakfast show as Keating won $749,000 back then.
Keating is expected to be the biggest draw during the 24-hour stream. Other deep pocket players set to be on the table include Stanley Tang and Brandon Steven, alongside Nik Airball, Charles Yu, and Andy Stacks.
Hustler Casino Live’s co-owner Ryan Feldman shared that the logistics of streaming for 24 hours is not a cakewalk. He added how players would bust and get tired of the staff and commentators also facing difficulty making it past an entire day of work.
He spoke about a plan to ensure that they do not face any issues through the full 24 hours of the stream. Feldman explained how they plan to have a waitlist and keep players on standby who can be ready to come in on-call across certain hours when the players quit or go bust. He added how the players would ideally give him a warning when they’re about to leave, giving him time to get a back-up ready for the stream.
The question to be asked would be if any player manages to make it through the entire marathon. While the likes of Airball and Suvarna are most likely to be on the table from start to finish, it will be interesting to see how others fare during this live streamed game.
