Hawaii is back in the news for poker video.
In a video posted by the Hawaii Pawn Shop and Casino on Thursday, the poker group is threatening to remove the poker video that’s been viewed more than 12 million times since it was posted on April 6.
In response, the Poker Players Association posted on Facebook that the poker videos are no longer available on YouTube and it’s “no longer appropriate to make public comments on what was posted to that account.”
The poker videos have garnered millions of views on YouTube, but have been flagged for inappropriate language and content.
The Poker Players association said the videos “have been removed from the YouTube platform.”
On Thursday, Poker Players asked the Poker Commission to ban the videos because they’re “unacceptable and unprofessional” and for the “lack of professional conduct.”
The association added that the video was posted after a poker game where the players were drinking and playing.
It said the video shows the players “playing a game of cards and using profanity” and “playing with other players to promote their game.”
“These are not poker videos, they are poker videos and a joke,” Poker Players executive director Dan McConville said in a statement to Axios.
“The Poker Players have decided that the videos are not appropriate for public consumption.
They are being removed and should not be viewed.”
On Friday, the PPA said it is “considering its legal options.”
The group said the poker games included in the video were played at the Pawn House in Kapolei, Hawaii.
The PPA also said it had not been served with a cease and desist letter from the PGA, and that the PPTG is reviewing its legal process.
The poker group posted a video of a poker tournament in Hawaii in May.
In the video, two poker players play a game with another player at the table.
The two players then “go off to take turns” and, according to the group, one player makes a $3,000 bet and the other makes $5,000.
The video says “one of the players makes $10,000 and the second player makes $2,500.”
The video ends with the poker players talking about “playing the game” with a person who has just won $50,000 in a tournament.
“And the person who won it said, ‘I bet you $10k and you didn’t even get $2k,’ ” the video says.
