Hollywood movie star and comedian Kevin Hart has teamed up with PokerStars to “make poker fun.” On his way to play in the €100,000 buy-in Super High Roller event, which was won by Bryn Kenney, Hart held a news conference to announce the partnership.
“I, Kevin Hart, have an amazing announcement today,” Hart said. “I have bullied myself into a partnership with PokerStars. Why? Because I love the game. I’m deeply in love with the game. I’ve seen what the game is missing, and it’s missing me… I want to bring my essence to the game.”
At the conference, Hart sat next to poker legend and member of Team PokerStars Daniel Negreanu and told him he knew what he needed to make playing the game more fun: “a black sidekick.”
“I’m glad there are all these poker pros here who I can compete with and take their money,” Hart added. “But the best thing about poker is that anyone can play it, whether you’re making millions like Daniel Negreanu or just sitting around the kitchen table playing for coins.”
The specific details of the partnership haven’t been revealed.
Hart is worth an estimated $128 million and is one of many celebrities who have made Texas Hold’em a favorite pastime. Hart made a splash when he dropped $300,000 in high-roller events at the PokerStars Championship in the Bahamas, and made it to day two of the Monte Carlo Super High Roller.
“We take poker seriously, because that’s our business,” Amaya Vice President of Corporate Communications Eric Hollreiser said in a statement. “Kevin Hart makes everything he does fun because that’s his business. Kevin is a maverick and we’re thrilled to work with him to take poker to new audiences around the world and have a great time doing it.”
