Hustler Casino Live (HCL) has announced that 12 players have so far confirmed their participation in “The Million Dollar Game”, a $1 million buy-in cash game that will take place on HCL from May 27-29.

Who Will Play?

The group includes a number of company founders and businessmen who have enough money to burn through for something they are passionate about. One of them is Brandon Steven from Kansas who owns a total of 19 car dealerships throughout the US.

Steven is also a prolific poker player with over $6 million in total live earnings. He finished runner-up in the $250K Super High Roller event at the 2022 World Series of Poker (WSOP) for $2,820,581.

Eric Persson is also part of the line-up. The casino magnate is the founder and CEO of Maverick Gaming which operates dozens of gambling venues across Washington, Colorado, and Nevada.

Door Dash founder Stanley Tang will also appear on the show, along with Justyn Howard, co-founder of Chicago-based social media management company Sprout Social.

Also part of the line-up is Chamath Palihapitiya, co-host of the popular All-In Podcast on YouTube. He is a venture capitalist, engineer, and SPAC sponsor who founded Social Capital, a venture capital firm headquartered in Palo Alto, California. The 46-year-old is also a former senior executive at Facebook.

Hedge fund manager Mark Radoja, who has achieved considerable success playing poker with two WSOP bracelets under his name, will also join in on the action, along with Ben Lee, a high-stakes poker enthusiast who is also an investment banker.

Rob Yong To Make HCL Debut via The Million Dollar Game

While many of the confirmed participants are HCL regulars, The Million Dollar Game will mark the HCL debut of poker industry professional Rob Yong. The Dusk Till Dawn owner and former partypoker executive is excited to be part of the line-up and he hopes to play in more livestreamed poker shows this year.

Of course, poker fans would not want to miss Ethan “Rampage” Yau on the show. The American poker pro, who is among the newest ambassadors of the World Poker Tour (WPT) online poker platform WPT Global, will take a shot at the $1 million buy-in game.

Other confirmed contestants include HCL regulars Nikhil “Nik Airball” Arcot and Prince Charles, as well as high-stakes gambler and self-proclaimed baccarat master Mikki Mase.
