Kevin Hart Loses Big at PokerStars Championship Bahamas

Comedian Kevin Hart is known for providing an audience with a premium comedic performance in the movies he stars in. Hart specializes in making people laugh and seems to spend his spare time enjoying the poker tables. Hart was spotted taking part in poker tournaments of the PokerStars Championship Bahamas, though not enjoying a solid performance. The comedian has lost over $300,000 as he competed in three different events of the series.

It seems that Hart maybe should have spent a little time reading online poker reviews and practicing at the top sites like PokerStars before heading down to compete in the PokerStars Championship Bahamas events. Hart first entered the Super High Roller Event, paying the $100,000 buy-in to take part. He ended up buying in a second time, so he lost a total of $200,000 during this event.

His next try was during the No Limit Hold’em main event which had a smaller $5,000 buy-in, so not a huge hit for the movie star. The next day, Hart took part in another high roller event, this time the single-day version. This event had a buy-in of $50,000. Once he was eliminated, Hart bought in for an additional $50,000 but was eliminated yet again. Since the tournament offered only one re-entry, Hart was unable to buy-in again.

The PokerStars Championship Bahamas is far from over with several tournaments still remaining. Hart may stick around and try again to gain back some of the money he has lost so far while competing. There are still no limit hold’em events on the schedule as well as a pot-limit Omaha event with a $25,000 buy-in.

Hart spoke with PokerNews about his foray into the poker tournament scene, stating that he had a good experience competing at the PokerStars Championship Bahamas for the very first time. Hart said it felt good to be embraced, be accepted and be treated well. Hart even took to his Facebook page to post an interesting video about his experince at the poker series.
