Garrett Adelstein is back. After 440 days away from the felt, the GMan is back playing on a live stream, with, at the latest count, 13,759 fans glued to his every move on Bally Live Poker.

It’s the first of two appearances this week, with Adelstein also set to play in the WPT Million Dollar Cash Game at the Wynn Las Vegas on Friday.

And there’s more exciting news.

Bally Live Poker has told PokerOrg of its plans to return to the Los Angeles poker market early next year. Their newly-minted partnership with The Commerce Casino & Hotel will see the thriving west coast live stream scene grow even larger.

Mitch Rubenstein, Vice President Production and Content at Bally’s Interactive, told us: “We are very excited to bring our new Bally Live Poker stream back to the LA market and could not ask for a better partner to do it with than Commerce.

“Be sure to tune in early in 2024 and come stop by and play too in the best Poker room in Los Angeles. We expect to see Garrett and the other stars of poker battle it out on the GMan’s home turf.”

The announcement all but guarantees that Adelstein will make more live stream appearances in the new year.

Garrett: What I’ve missed about poker

PokerOrg is at the Wynn Las Vegas and has boots on the ground at the Bally Live Poker stream, too. We spoke to Adelstein ahead of his return today.

It’s been over a year since his widely-discussed run-in with Robbi Jade Lew on Hustler Casino Live and, in that time, the Los Angeles end-boss hasn’t played a single hand of poker nor studied in any way.

Adelstein’s return comes at a particularly busy time in the poker world, but, nonetheless, many eyes will be on the Bally Live Poker stream tonight.

If you can’t watch tonight, make sure you don’t miss the WPT Million Dollar Cash Game on Friday, when Adelstein will be butting heads with Andrew Robl and Santhosh Survana.

We’ll bring you all the big moments on the PokerOrg Instant feed tonight, along with all the major updates from the WPT World Championship. It feels like Christmas has come already.
