“Not only am I on partypoker but I’m here to party.” This week, Kevin Hart, one of the biggest stars in show business, was named a new global ambassador for partypoker. Hart, well-known the world over for his comedy and starring roles in blockbuster movies like Jumanji and Central Intelligence, is known as an avid poker fan and a grinder of some of the biggest Hollywood home games available. “Expect the world of poker to get a lot more fun,” Hart declared in a video announcement posted by partypoker’s Rob Yong. “Expect it to get real…and expect us to get rid of all of the people that make it so f*****g technical, man. It’s a community sport, goddamnit. I’m big on community, I’m big on people.” This is by no means Hart’s first foray into poker. Starting back in 2017, Hart had a role with PokerStars as an ambassador. He appeared on the televised poker shows PokerStars Shark Cage and the Championship Cash Challenge as well as famously raced Usain Bolt in the Bahamas for a PokerStars promo. Outside of his relationship with PokerStars, Hart’s been known to have close ties to poker. In 2017, Hart was cracking jokes as he played in the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl. In 2018, he was back in the Bahamas battling some of the toughest players in the world in the PokerStars $100K Super High Roller. “He’s the highest stakes amateur poker player in the world,” Rob Yong said of Hart. In fact, Hart’s amateur status is one of the things that partypoker and Rob Yong like best about Hart. The partypoker stable is already packed with big-name pros including Jason Koon, Kristen Bicknell, Sam Trickett, and Isaac Haxton. However, the entire squad’s combined star power pales in comparison to the over 36 million Twitter followers available to Hart. His Instagram account has even further reach with 88.7 million people taking a look into his day-to-day life as a movie star. As for what Hart will exactly be doing for partypoker, those details "will be revealed in the near future" according to a press release. Yong is hoping that Hart will help him "promote mature poker and promote poker to the masses." So whether it's showing up and bringing the party to a future partypoker MILLIONS event or even just wearing a partypoker patch in a boxing re-match against Antonio Esfandiari, whatever his role is it will likely draw a lot of attention.
Seven days ago, Michael Addamo was sitting on top of the world after winning over $600,000 and a pair of partypoker High Roller Club titles. On Sunday, Addamo had a chance to pick up a second consecutive partypoker High Roller Club Main Event title before he ran into Nick Petrangelo. Petrangelo outlasted 29 other runners and then beat Addamo heads-up to win the Main Event and earned $356,500. Addamo had to settle for the runner-up score of $217,000. Isaac Haxton defeated former #1-ranked Niklas Astedt in the partypoker High Roller Club Mix-Max 2nd Chance event to bank $184,000.

The PokerStars Sunday Million was up to 12,860 runners this week, an increase of 1,315 over last week, to build a total prize pool of $1,286,000.

Daniel Dvoress finished in the silver medal position in that event for $130,302.04. The GGPoker GGMasters had 3,367 entries to fall $35,354 short of making the $500,000 guarantee.

Team partypoker's own Isaac Haxton is widely regarded as one of the best poker players on the planet. On Sunday he added to that reputation by outlasting 45 other players in the partypoker High Roller Club Main Event. The $25,500 buy-in event had many of the best poker players in the world vying for the eventual six-figure score. Haxton beat all of them to walk away with $437,000. Spaniard Sergi Reixach had to settle for a $287,500 payday after being the final player to fall to Haxton. Pascal Lefrancois picked up yet another six-figure score after winning $184,000 for coming in third place. Many of the players that Haxton dispatched also took a shot in the partypoker High Roller Club Mix-Max Second Chance event. The $10,300 event had 65 total entries with Austria's Thomas Muehloecker outlasting all of them to win $224,840.20. Belarussian Mikita Badziakouski finished as the runner-up for $146,250.

'BadReligion' entered the land of competition and proved to be a worthy 21st century boy (or girl) by outlasting all 3,504 of their competitors to win $71,750.75.

The Super High Roller Bowl Online is a showcase for some of the world's best high stakes tournament players but it's quickly becoming a personal playground for Viktor Blom. On Saturday afternoon the Swedish superstar won SHRB Online title for the third time in the last six days. Blom beat out 54 other entries in Event #21 ($10,300 High Roller) to earn $195,250.
