Robbi Jade Lew To Play 3 Days on ‘Live at the Bike’ Starting From Feb 14
- Lew is returning to live-stream poker months after the HCL cheating scandal
- She will play on Live at the Bike for three days starting Feb. 14
- Phil Hellmuth will also be a part of the show
Robbi Jade Lew is ready to take her chances again on live-stream poker, four months after being accused of cheating by Garrett Adelstein on a high-stakes cash game on Hustler Casino Live (HCL).
The American poker player will play on Live at the Bike (LATB) on Valentine’s Day, and she will be sharing the table with Phil Hellmuth.
Lew Makes Live-stream Poker Comeback on LATB
In December 2022, Lew indicated she might return to HCL as soon as the investigation into the poker scandal involving her and Adelstein comes to a close. She has since changed her mind and has decided to make her live-stream poker return on LATB instead.
Lew was ultimately vindicated, as the three-month-long HCL investigation did not find credible evidence to prove any wrongdoing committed by her during the controversial hand.
Lew will be on LATB for three days, from February 14-16. The final line-up for the game has yet to be announced, but among those confirming their attendance is Phil Hellmuth, who received a lot of flak in August 2022, when he bought in for just a portion of the top stacks – less than 100 big blinds – in a $50/$100 no-limit hold’em cash game on LATB.
Hellmuth has since promised to spend $300,000 or more as buy-in when entering live-streamed poker shows in the future and he will make good on that promise in his game with Lew come Feb. 14. The Poker Brat will play all three days, buying in for $300,000. Also playing all three days is LATB regular Aussie Al.
Maria Ho will be playing on the second and third day, with streamer Kevin Martin also making an appearance on the 16th.
Message for Garrett
Lew announced her live-stream poker comeback in a video posted by LATB on Twitter where she sends a message to her “lovers and haters”. At the end of the video, Lew challenges her accuser Adelstein to join her on the show. That’s unlikely to happen though as the cash game specialist appears to have taken a break from live-stream poker since the scandal erupted.

Recently on Twitter, he hinted at returning to HCL in May as one of the players in a $1 million buy-in cash game.
2/2: I’ve surprised myself with the peace I’ve felt being away from all things poker in recent months. But if/when I do decide to play again, I’m open to playing on HCL.

We’ll find out soon if he actually becomes part of the final line-up of what HCL has dubbed the “biggest game in poker history”.
