It was a rough day for ACR Poker pro Tom Dwan, to say the least, as he went down $992,000 at the Hustler Casino Live's Million Dollar Game.


After the game, he sat down with Veronica Brill (@Angry_Polak) to discuss his brutal session.

Brill really rubbed it in.  Both seemed to take it in stride that Dwan had lost so much money.  Yours Truly would have been trying to find the nearest bridge to jump off of. 

"So the game is really good even though you are running absolutely terrible," she told him.

"Well, so far it is me making the game good," Dwan responded, but admitted the jack 10 was rough.

And the pivotal moment when everything just did not go well for Dwan?

"When I had a good hand and they had a better hand," he responded.

This year's Million Dollar Game, which can be watched live below, is being played May 28-31.  It features an astonishing $1 Million Buy in.

Confirmed participants include Doug Polk, Tony Guoga (AKA Tony G) and Brandon Steven, among others, and of course Tom Dwan.

This year's games began with $500/$1,000 blinds no-limit hold'em with the advertised blinds only a starting point.  It will be streamed live.

Hustler Casino Live is a full-scale, high-value production. Close to a million dollars was spent transforming the casino’s high-limit poker room, the Crystal Room, into the set of this new state-of-the-art live show. HUSTLER Casino Live is not a traditional livestream poker show; it will look more like coverage of a TV broadcast sporting event and appeal to those beyond the gaming community. Unscripted and unedited, viewers can expect the biggest names in poker, along with many surprise guests, to be seated at the HUSTLER table. All players will be personally hand-picked and invited by the hosts—ensuring colorful characters, lively games, risky bets, and high stakes. In addition, some of the biggest names in poker will be a part of the lineup of guest commentators, including Norman Chad, Bart Hanson, David Tuchman and more.

“We have thought about producing a high-quality all cash poker livestream for several years but were waiting for the right opportunity. The stars aligned when we began discussions with Ryan Feldman and Nick Vertucci. They are the absolute best partners and share our goal of providing a top-quality product for poker fans around the globe. Mr. Flynt spared no expense with this project; in fact, it was the last one he approved—he would be so proud of HUSTLER Casino Live,” said Shaun Yaple, HUSTLER Casino General Manager.
