PokerStars #GameOn Challenge features Usain Bolt and Kevin Hart

PokerStars is very enthusiastic when it comes to promoting their re-named PokerStars Caribbean Challenge, which is all set to happen next January in the Bahamas, and to keep with the tradition of endorsing the always-popular live tournament series, PokerStars ambassadors Kevin Hart and Usain Bolt shall be doing again their #GameOn challenges.

To see which of these two celebs could ‘keep their cool' the longest time possible (an important skill for any aspiring poker player), a huge tin tub full of ice and super-cold water was set up for them to climb in to. The one who lasts the longest in the tub is declared the winner, and of course PokerStars is there to film the challenge once more.

Watch the video here:

As the comedian Hart took off his robe to reveal his vintage-looking swimsuit attire with matching shower cap, he looked very uneasy, especially when he realized the tub was almost as tall as he was. Meanwhile, Bolt psyched himself up and then took a dip. Bolt's pained expression haven't encouraged Hart at all for him to jump in too, and he only tried to dip in a measly toe in the icy water before conceding the challenge to the Olympic sprinter, saying "I don't know what this has to do with poker faces or anything else!" while performing a ‘diva' style storm off the set.

The video footage concludes with referee Daniel Negreanu explaining from the frozen depths of the ice bath why it is crucial to stay cool under pressure, while effectively maintaining one's poker face.

So, after you watch the video, we're sure you'll agree that Kevin Hart fled faster than Usain Bolt on this one!

Expect more interesting and funny videos over the next few weeks until Bolt and Hart finally get together over the felt for a heads-up match which will take place during the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) in the Bahamas.

Who do you think will win, Usain Bolt or Kevin Hart?

I love these sort of things and this video did make me laugh. I have always been a very big fan of Kevin Hart and, i can only imagine how funny it would be to actually play poker with the guy

These videos with beautiful moments are good for relaxation. To see a professional poker player, a comedy actor and a Jamaican sprinter is a rare thing except for various award ceremonies. It's not a shame that kevin hart did not want to enter on the ice water. I think his body was not ready for this.

Usain Bolt is the perfect ambassador for the Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas this year. Normally i don´t understand the strategy behind the sport star ambassadors for poker rooms, but for this tourney series it was the right guy. And it was a nice dream to play poker in the Bahamas in the winter time Blink

I dunno, funny or not I personally do not see a whole lot of reasoning behind such pr. not that it will attract new players to cabibbean poker adventure series, its just good videos to spend a minute of your time and move on.

Usain Bolt and Kevin Hart of course very famous people .... and they will certainly attract new players to this poker room .... in this case it seems to me that their attraction is certainly beneficial for these people and for this poker room .... mutually beneficial cooperation

Of course is a mutually beneficial cooperation and these stars people will be part of the strategy of the stars group(amaya group). Pokerstars begins to change stars too fast i do not know why but it's nice to see many stars playing poker or making fun videos. Now pokerstars need to come with good decisions for the players or maybe not. We will see.

Usain Bolt and Kevin Hart. Two big names are better than one. I really would like to know how much these PokerStars ambassadors are getting paid. Maybe at least US$250,000 a year over a two or three-year period? Maybe a lot more?
