Remembering Poker Legend Casey Kastle

Casey Kastle PokerCasey Kastle For years, Kastle held one of the most impressive records in poker — being the first to collect 50 flags on The Hendon Mob. What that means is he had cashed in poker tournaments across 50 countries. That’s a mark few have ever or will ever achieve.

Kastle had great success as a poker player — $2.2 million in live tournament cashes — but he was equally respected among his peers beyond the felt. The late poker pro’s first recorded cash came in January 1998, a third place finish for $22,800 in a $540 buy-in no-limit hold’em event in Las Vegas.

Since then, he’s played thousands of tournaments and cash games across the world, winning tournaments in 13 different countries, another rare feat. Kastle’s largest cash occurred in 2008 — $137,985 — when he took second place in a $1,500 buy-in pot-limit Omaha event at the World Series of Poker, the closest he came to winning a bracelet.

Kastle has long been known for his The Hendon Mob record, and it became part of who he was within the poker community. The accomplishment was finally recognized internationally in 2024 when he received the Hendon Mob Award at the Global Poker Awards ceremony in Las Vegas. The Hendon Mob paid tribute to Kastle on X. PokerNews would like to extend our condolences to the friends and family of Casey Kastle.
