New Episode of PokerStars Championship Cash Challenge Released

PokerStars Championship Cash Challenge
  • Watch Kevin Hart, Negreanu, Boeree, Carrel, Jaka, and a qualifier in a €25/€50 cash game!

  • Watch Jaime Staples, Cody, Fatehi, Lin, Grafton, and a qualifier in a €25/€50 cash game!

They teased earlier with a video which we dubbed the Craziest Hand of Poker You'll See All Year, but now the full first episode of the PokerStars Championship Cash Challenge has been released.

PokerStars taped the show during the now-defunct PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo, in which six players battle it out in a €25/€50 cash game with €10 ante. Pre-flop the action is pot limit, post-flop it's no-limit.

Line Up One - Kevin Hart

The first five episodes feature some established pros, not all necessarily known for their cash game prowess, movie star Kevin Hart, and qualifier Mila Munroe. Munroe, a qualifier from Germany, is staked for €12,500 by PokerStars. Dubbed "The Challenger," she plays 150 hands and gets to keep any profits she makes.

The video playlist beneath has all five episodes featuring this lineup.
