Rampage is Back! Poker Vlogger Wins $475k Pot vs. Nik Airball in Epic Hustler Casino Live Hand

Ethan "Rampage" Yau has been on a downswing in recent months, but a massive hand against Nikhil "Nik Airball" Arcot during Friday night's Hustler Casino Live stream might have him headed back in the right direction.

The hand in question, which led to a $473,000 pot, occurred at around 10 p.m. PT, about five hours into the $50/$100 no-limit hold'em cash game.

Rampage Poker Wins Three-Way Cooler

Hustle Casino Live's X account teased a "huge hand coming up soon" about an hour before the hand in question aired. When it did air, Dr. P began the action by raising to $300 from the hijack with QQ before Rampage three-bet to $1,200 on the button with KK. Airball, in the small blind with AK, just called, which led Dr. P to move all in for $25,875.

Rampage, who began the hand with over $225,000, opted to just call the bet. Airball, whose Big Slick was a bit under-repped, moved all in with twice Rampages stack. The poker vlogger snap-called, creating a pot of $473,475.

All three players agreed to run the board out twice, and the first one came 8J948, ensuring Rampage would win at least half the pot, and then he'd scoop the entire pot after 939710 made up the second board.

Nik Airball, who has been up and down on live-streams in recent months, found himself stuck around $200,000 following the cooler hand against Rampage. He then called for the chip runner to give him another $1 million in chips, bringing his stack to nearly $1.3 million.

At the time of publishing, Rampage was far and away the biggest winner on the session, up around $275,000. Airball was easily the biggest loser in the game.

For Rampage, it's been a rough few months, starting in December with the World Poker Tour (WPT) World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas. Last month, he lost nearly $500,000 during a Hustler Casino Live session and joked about how he might have to soon return to the $1/$3 streets, the biggest loss of his poker career.

The popular poker vlogger won't have to worry about going back to the low-stakes grind after winning that monster pot against Nik Airball.
