PokerStars Championship Cash Challenge With Jaime Staples

PokerStars Championship Cash Challenge

They teased it last week 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.
