Nik Airball was featured on the Hustler Casino Live stream and took a beating on Tuesday night. He featured in one of the biggest and most insane Pot-Limit Omaha cash games. The lineup looked stacked, with poker legend Tom Dwan also featuring at the table, joining Nik Airball. Alongside them was Santhosh Suvarna, an Indian pro who has started to make a name with regular appearances in the live-stream community.
Airball had been a big winner on Hustler Casino Live for quite some time but did not fare well in the recent past. Playing at the first PLO game on Hustler Casino Live, Airball continued to run into trouble from time to time. He could not have predicted a run worse than this, as he was repeatedly forced to go all in preflop. He got scooped multiple times throughout the session while running it twice.
The blinds were at $500/$500/$1,000 with a $2,000 big blind ante, which led to massive pots preflop, as players were often seen three and four-betting to push the pot size upwards. While everyone initially bought in at $50,000, the stack sizes changed drastically due to certain hands such as this.
The clip shows Tom Dwan taking Airball’s case by asking how much he should bet on the hand. While Airball tries to get into the legalities and, looking to avoid Dwan from counting his chips cards, Dwan manages to get Airballs’s chip count with some help from the table.

Professor was holding Ks Qs Js 8h while Dwan sat with Ah Qd Jc 9c before raising to 35,000 as the professor decided to call. Anthony’s cards are displayed 10h 7d 7c 5h. Suanrava was also in the game and decided to fold.
Nik Airball boasts As 9d 3c 2s and decides to make the call. The flops open up as 4c Qh 5c giving Airball his straight while Professor and Dwan, on the other hand, flopped a top queen pair each so far.
Following Dwan’s check, the Professor decides to go all in with his, betting $107,00, and gets a snap call from Airball, who shouts, ” I don’t give a f**k.” Dwan also gets in on the action as the players decide to run it thrice for the main pot as well as the side pot.
Dwan won two hands while Airball claimed the third one! He went through more than 10 bullets and lost over half a million, while Dwan won $160,000, with Anthony bagging the biggest win of over $400,000.
