$5K Showdown featuring Russell Peters – March 30 at 19:00 ET

Brace yourselves – stand-up comedian and novice poker player, Russell Peters, will be trying his luck in a $5 buy-in, $5K guaranteed poker tournament hosted by GGPoker. The Canadian comedian, who was recently named as one of Rolling Stone’s 50 best stand-up comics of all time, has amassed a global fan base through his relatable anecdotes, humorously discussing topics such as race, ethnicity and cultural stereotypes. The global comedy rock star will be hosting his first-ever international poker tournament so expect nothing but laughs (and of course prize money!)
He may have a blue belt with three stripes in Jiu Jitsu, but will he be able to fight and win versus his more experienced opponents?
Given that Russell Peters is not a poker pro, you stand a good chance to have the upper hand in this poker game, and on top of that, laugh out loud at his jokes. Russell Peters understands the poker lingo, but will he prove that beginner’s luck really exists? There’s one way to find out – tune in to GGPoker.TV and on our social channels on Tuesday, March 30 at 19:00 ET / 23:00 GMT to watch how a celebrity newbie plays online tournament poker!
