SuperStars To Play In Live At The Bike S50/100 Cash Game
25 Aug

The Live at the Bike offerings just keep coming, with this Friday seeing the likes of Antonio ‘The Magician’ Esfandiari, Doug Polk’s buddy Ryan Fee and Garrett Adelstein aka GMan sitting down for a full ring cash game at $50/100, with the entire thing being streamed on Twitch TV.

Having just witnessed some of the most interesting heads-up matches of the year with their King of the Hill winner-takes-all event – Phil Hellmuth taking down both Doug Polk and Daniel Cates in incredible fashion to scoop the $200,000 pot – The Bicycle Casino has its next biggie all sewn up, with Josh Macciello, Israeli Ron and Barry Woods joining the big names.

Also looking to win big in the cash game will be locals Andy, Ken and Michael, the livestream sure to fill in some blanks on the anonymous-sounding regs who fancy their chances at a game which might end up playing much higher than the $50/100 stakes advertised.

Esfandiari needs no introduction, while Ryan Fee has made a name for himself not only online and in live tournament play, but also as one of the masters of the Upswing Poker strategy school alongside Doug Polk. ‘GMan’ Adelstein made a name for himself in the 2014 reality TV show Survivor, listing ‘Bodybuilding, alcohol, psychology and cinema’ as his hobbies outside of being a poker pro.

The 2pm Pacific Time kick-off on Friday at one of California’s best-known cardrooms will have several ways for fans of the game follow the action. Spectators are welcome at the casino, while the Live at the Bike Channel on Twitch TV, as well as their own website and selected highlights on YouTube means you won’t have to miss a hand.

Earlier this week the Hellmuth, Cates, Polk, and Kassela quartet had battled it out over 2 days – the $50K buy-in not lasting long in Kassela’s case as he fell to Cates after only 4 hands, while Hellmuth outplayed a slightly unlucky Polk in the other semi-final.

Yesterday’s final saw Hellmuth mount a comeback of epic proportions against the Jungleman, and it’s a match-up which deserves a second or even third viewing for sheer entertainment value – Hellmuth confounding the experts with his victory and walking off with the huge prize and title of King of the Hill.
