The Railbird Report: Gus Hansen, Tony G Battle in Huge Live Poker Game

Ravenswood13, Tony G, Gus Hansen

There aren't a whole lot of poker shows out there these days, and watching reruns of High Stakes Poker and Poker After Dark is only fun for so long. Luckily, there are a whole lot of Twitch streamers out there to keep us entertained, and King's Casino Rozvadov broadcasts high-stakes action every now and then.

Last week, as the World Series of Poker Circuit was rolling into town, Europe's biggest card room had a new edition of Celebrity Cash Kings with some hefty action.

Pulling in the viewers were none other than Gus Hansen and Tony G.

Joining them on the live stream were Niki "KaiBuxxe/RealAndyBeal" Jedlicka and King's regulars like Ronny "1-ronnyr3" Kaiser, Jan-Peter Jachtmann, Martin Kabrhel, Akin Tuna and owner Leon Tsoukernik.

Add some recreational players into the mix and November Niner Pierre Neuville, and you're guaranteed action.

The first two days the game spread was pot-limit Omaha with blinds at €100/€200 with straddles. The last day, the game in play was no-limit hold'em. EPT Barcelona runner-up Fintan Gavin provided the commentary and you can (re)watch it all on Twitch and YouTube.

Online High-Stakes Action the Last Three Weeks

While the biggest pots were all between Dani "supernova9" Stern and BERRY SWEET, both are in the red over the last three weeks.

The biggest heater at the moment goes to "Ravenswood13," the Malta resident hailing from The Netherlands. The Omaha expert had an outstanding 2014 but lost his mojo (and a lot of money) in the years that followed. Now he's back with a plus of almost $800,000 for the year, getting him back in the black overall.
