Forbidden from performing at Hustler Casino Live, Garrett Adelstein
Due to a business choice, the show’s most adored player will be sidelined permanently. Irony was Garrett’s response.
In order to keep Garrett Adelstein out of Hustler Casino Live
The poker industry is still in uproar over the exclusion of Garrett Adelstein, the show’s most popular participant, from future competitions. Nick Vertucci and Ryan Feldman, the team’s co-owners, made the call after GMan accused Robbi Jade Lew of cheating in September.
Robbi Jade Lew did not cheat, as proven by an exhaustive examination.
The suspension has been described as “indefinite,” although Vertucci has not ruled out Adelstein’s comeback in the future. Nevertheless, he won’t be making an appearance in the $1 million buy-in special that will be recorded in May.
Adelstein, Vertucci, and Feldman’s rapport has been generally cordial; nevertheless, Lew’s alleged adultery has strained their friendship. Vertucci suggested pairing Lew and Adelstein in an episode, but Feldman declined.
According to Vertucci, the Adelstein ban was made for commercial reasons and nobody has anything against him. As the debate rages on, one thing is clear: the proprietors of Hustler Casino Live place a premium on the fairness of their games.
In reaction to Vertucci’s remarks on the Nick Vertucci Show, Adelstein tweeted his thoughts. His ironic retort betrays his displeasure with what was stated.
Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t that I was forced to stop watching poker broadcasts for the last six months. Yet in the meanwhile, my life has been really fulfilling. Be thirsty and keep using my name for clicks till I decide to go on a stream I trust. I’m here to assist you: https://t.co/6gLUiNcqPT

The last six months have been some of the happiest of my life, but that’s because I’ve chosen to avoid all poker broadcasts rather than the other way around. I may still hop on a broadcast I trust, but until then, keep using my name for clicks, and I’ll help you quench your thirst.
When asked by the PokerNews website for comment on his statements, Adelstein responded with “nothing to offer.”
Adelstein had 53 appearances on Hustler Casino Live until the dispute with the player on September 29, 2022. He has reportedly earned over $1.5 million on the program, according to TrackingPoker.com.
