Who Won $800,000 in Hustler Casino Live?

Hustler Casino Live's (HCL)was live streamed on Friday, and it ended with a lucrative $650,000 four-way pot. But, some players at the table weren't around throughout the 15 hours of play.

Jean Robert Bellande debuted on HCL on Thursday and left the event early with an $800,000 profit. It was the biggest winning session in HCL's history, and it increased the two day's winnings to more than $1,000,000.

Bellande, a self-proclaimed "broke high roller" doesn't have to play again for one month to pay his bills. The table had interesting players who didn't fear gambling. Besides, their pockets were more loaded than those of average poker players.

They included Stanley Tang (DoorDash's founder), Alan Keating, Mikki Mase, and Wesley Fei. Ryusuke, a new HCL celebrity, turned up and returned to Japan with a $275,000 profit.

Keating's Stunning Performance

Keating is a tycoon who likes playing high-stakes private games. Still, he is a famous loose player on Hustler Casino Live.

The investor's Voluntary Put In Pot (VPIP) has reduced of late from 80 percent. Yet, he had a 57 percent VPIP in the 15-hour session being the table's highest.

Keating had an unpredictable day despite losing $1.1 million in May in a MrBeast/Ninja game. He was down to $700,000 in one instance but didn't give up.

The poker pro had an opportunity to win a huge sum of money later in the session. He had a dream scenario holding {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} on a {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} board. His opponent had a strong hand while he held nuts in a huge pot.

J.R. is a regular HCL high-stakes player, and he used {j-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} two pair to go all-in in a $322,000 over-shove. Yet, he missed a fold against Keating, who got a $749,000 pot.

Luck Favors JRB Twice in a Hand

Bellande contested in Survivor and is a skilled poker player. He was up $1,000,000 sometime in the game. A hand that Matthew "Hanks" Honig lost to him greatly helped him rebuild his stack.

JRB used {a-Spades}{k-Hearts} to jam in a $234,000 preflop but {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} snap-called him. Both players ran twice while $469,000 was in the middle.

A {9-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{2-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds} run out favored Bellande, and he landed an ace on the river aiming to win a pot. Hanks appeared to get an advantage in the second run-out as the board ran {6-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}.

JRB received a straight from the {q-Spades} river and took the whole pot. Even so, Hanks lost $263,000 at the end of the steam, a similar loss he had in a previous bad beat jackpot.

An Exciting Four-Way Pot

The Hustler Casino Live stream had a great ending, like other amazing poker shows. Four players remained after about 15 hours of action, including Mase, Fei, Keating, and Ryusuke.

Mase initially bought in $400,000 but had almost $300,000 before the final hand. Fei lost a lot in the session, while Ryusuke had $400,000, and Keating made a profit of almost $100,000.

Fei used {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs} to jam in $183,000 after Ryusuke straddled $35,000. But, the latter's {a-Spades}{q-Spades} called the former. Mase used {q-Diamonds}{j-Spades} to put in the remaining $70,000 after committing $35,000 for a pot.

Yet, Keating had the highest number of chips, and he landed {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} in the hole. The move prompted Ryusuke to fold an extra $450,000, leaving a $653,000 three-way pot as the players headed to a {10-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} pot that gave Fei the top seat.

{3-Diamonds} on the turn changed things as Keating got a flush draw while Mase held a diamond before drawing dead. The brick was {4-Clubs} on the river.

Fei finished the event with a $108,000 profit, while Keating lost $95,000. Ryusuke made $270,000 despite playing for a short time, and Mase made a $403,000 loss.
