The new Formula One season is well underway with its next stop the Monaco Grand Prix, and the excitement is evident. PokerStars, in cooperation with Oracle Red Bull Racing (ORBR), are airing Between the Lines, a brand-new video series that promises to transport viewers to the exciting realms of Formula 1 racing and high-stakes poker. The first episode airs on May 24!
Merging Speed and Strategy
Between the Lines aims to present an explosive combination of speed and strategy over the next eight months, casting a spotlight on the common methods adopted by top-flight racing car drivers and poker maestros alike.
Viewers can expect entertaining visits from ORBR regulars Sergio Perez and Christian Horner, as well as insights from some of poker’s greatest names. Lex Veldhuis, Liv Boeree, Steve O’Dwyer, and Hossein Ensan will be prominently featured throughout the series, drawing comparisons between the competitive rigors of Formula One racing and poker.
Episode 1 – Fortune Favours the Brave
Kicking off the series, viewers will delve into Sergio Perez’s tactful approach to seizing victory at the Monaco Grand Prix. This episode juxtaposes Perez’s winning strategy with that of Hossein Ensan, renowned for his early aggression that led to his triumph at EPT Prague. The lesson? Taking calculated risks early on can yield substantial rewards.
The second episode draws parallels between the suspenseful comeback stories of Max Verstappen in Belgium’s F1 race and Giuliano Bendinelli’s poker win at EPT Barcelona. The nail-biting saga of Verstappen and the ORBR team climbing from position 14 to achieve victory aligns with Bendinelli’s extraordinary recovery from having just one big blind left.
The third instalment of the series showcases the relentlessness of Verstappen and Marcelo Simoes in their respective fields. Both maintain intense pressure on their opponents, emerging victorious at Hungary Grand Prix and EPT Monte Carlo, respectively.
Episode 4: The Art of Patience
The final episode underlines the critical importance of patience in the realms of F1 and poker. It highlights how Team ORBR held their nerves to secure a win in Singapore and how Steve O’Dwyer meticulously bided his time before striking, ultimately claiming victory at EPT Monte Carlo.
The first episode of Between the Lines is set to premiere on Wednesday, May 24, 2023.
