Global poker brand PokerStars hosted a friendly ‘Sundays with PokerStars’ tournament which was live-streamed on Tanmay Bhat and Samay Raina’s YouTube channels. The stream hosted comedians Samay Raina, Sejal Bhat, Nishanth Tanwar, magician Vivek Desai, gamer Anshu Bisht and stand-up comic artist Tanmay Bhat.
During the friendly tourney, the All India Bakchod Co-Founder and YouTuber Tanmay Bhat and the other comedians took to bashing one another humorously and also ran two exclusive contests for PokerStars players.
Along with the stream, the popular online poker brand also conducted a PokerStars pop quiz in the chatbox. Sahil and Vivek (moderators) asked two questions and lucky winners had the chance to win exclusive PokerStars merchandise. Other than this, there was also a ‘Play of the night question’ at the end of the stream. The winner would get PokerStars merchandise signed by Neymar Junior, the brand ambassador of PokerStars.
The chat box was filled with supporters and poker enthusiasts who asked comedians to play in a certain manner. Desai, the magician, seriously commented about the game and also predicted a few hands and how players should go about with their cards. There were some basic questions like ‘who is a dealer?’ were thrown at the audience which Desai politely answered.
While not all players were pros, it was a night to remember for all the fans of the comedians and PokerStars players. These live poker streams will take place every Sunday evening and not only will it have Bhat and Raina’s non-stop humour. The two comedians will also host celebrity guests every week.
