Letsgiveitaspin on High Stakes Poker

Recommended Posts

The new season of High Stakes Poker debuted a couple of nights ago. Much to my surprise there was a slots streamer on there, Kim "Letsgiveitaspin" Hultman.

I'd heard of the name, but never seen any content of his. Fair play to the guy for getting on the most iconic poker show of all time and putting up $100k to sit with decent players and have some fun. (Who says streaming slots doesn't pay 😜

Not sure if it's just the one episode he's one, will have to wait and find out. 

Would be cool to hear his side of the story, how did he get on the show, what was everyone like during filming etc. Couldn't seem to find much aside from a pokernews article explaining who he was! 

If anyone knows him, get him on here to talk about it!

@ColourMeUp he has his own forum so I doubt he'll come on here, although he is friends with Paul so maybe he could put a word in.

I was looking forward to watching it but I'm not subscribing to do so. Is there anyway to watch it elsewhere?

Yes, the only other link I found was to his forum but wasn't going to link it on here! 

No, it's subscription only, you might be able to find some copy's on YouTube but Pokergo are pretty quick at taking them down which is fair enough Imo

@ColourMeUp did Kim get invited onto the show or did he pay for the exclusivity of playing with them. I'd imagine playing against Ivy, Negreanu etc would be a dream table of his but i'd of thought it would cost alot more if he did pay for it

I don't know!

He's paying for it in the sense it cost him 100k to sit down and play and assuming he didn't make profit from how the 1st episode panned out. 

The great thing about poker is that as long as you have the money you play with anyone, just more curious with how he came to be on the show. High Stakes Poker is synonymous with having 6 pros and a couple of businessman/rich amateurs so assuming he was there as one of those guys!

I watched him in some live casino a good while back and thot he was annoying af 

The roulette table had a decent amount of people around it some friends of his some not,  he was by far the loudest person playing,  which is often the case with certain people who have a few bob. 

I mind sticking up a msg in the comments and he got back to me in a friendly enough manor.

Have you legit not heard of Kim ?😂😂😂 

he’s part of casino grounds and so doubt he will make it over here. 
As for the whole buy in thing as long as you have money you can join (I think) also I should imagine he pulled some strings to get him there.  I’m not subbed to him or go on casino grounds but if your interested in the whole thing I’m sure he’ll answer your questions .

I wouldn't want to get TGC in trouble, pokergo have a history of being very strict on piracy. Your best bet is to give it a couple of months for all the episodes to air, sign up for a 1 month subscription ($10 roughly) then watch it all.

I'd heard of Letsgiveitaspin, but I've never really been one for watching streams or a lot of YouTube stuff tbh, only ever watched Rolla and Bandit and a bit of fruity slots from time to time. 

Just more surprised that people are earning so much from streaming slots that they can punt 100k playing poker, I must be out of touch.

Imo you can "apply" to get in but you either have to be rich as fuck or be at least somehow famous in some way. Since streaming is so popular these days they probably let him play just for promotion of PokerGO. Its not the same like it was in previous years where all the millionaires and billionaires played with pros, now its all about getting people to buy PokerGo subscriptions and since Kim is a casino streamer it makes sense to think a lot will buy them to see him play.

Ahh right it makes sense now. He must of had some sort of deal in place to help promote PokerGO on CG or something which helped him get on a table like that.

I put Kims full name in YouTube hoping to find the poker videos and found this instead. It's a podcast that Kim did about 3 years ago talking about having an edge when gambling. I ain't listened to it yet but thought it might be a good listen for some on here. There isn't many comments or views on it so that's why i thought i'd share

They mainly talk about advantage play, blackjack, slots etc, sometimes they have some interesting guests on, it's my falling asleep podcast!

So what’s this forum valued at?, been here for years with steady traffic with a popular streamer behind it.

No idea what this would be worth. Having read the article I presume the reason CG sold for so much was the fact that with the streaming team able to stream so much and therfore bringing in a lot of affiliate income coupled with the huge database of players to further monetize it was worth it. 

I guess Rolla needs to create a streaming team starting with TGC Blacko, then he can cash in 😜
