Kevin Hart and Usain Bolt feud in PokerStars #GameOn finale
7 Feb 2018
Daniel Negreanu, the world's highest-earning live tournament poker player and member of Team PokerStars Pro, will once again join Bolt and Hart as the game's commentator to provide expert insight and analysis. The stars will also put to the test the poker skills they've been honing since the campaign started in June 2017.
"Usain may be fast on the track, but I'm going to be fast taking his chips at the table," said Hart, one of the most successful comedians in the world and star of "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle."
"The little funny man won't be laughing much longer when I take all his chips at the poker table," said Bolt.
The nearly yearlong competition has seen Hart and Bolt try to outdo each other by posting videos to their combined 140 million-strong social media following. The most recent series saw them complete a set of challenges to test the core qualities and skills of poker, including reading opponents, emotional control and bluffing.
"The #GameOn competition highlights the variety of skills it takes to be a good poker player, including endurance, street smarts, bluffing, strategic thinking and reading your opponent," said Eric Hollreiser, Vice President of Corporate Communications at The Stars Group. "At the same time, Kevin and Usain show the tremendous fun and friendly social competition at the heart of poker."
