Negreanu knows what’s what in the world of poker
by Thursday ,22 Sep 2011 Already a poker legend Daniel Negreanu is taking a bigger role behind the scenes Some of the biggest poker stars in the world are logging on to their PokerStars accounts in order to get in on the estimated $30 million dollars cash that’s available in the PokerStars World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) event that is happening right now and continues for the best part of a month. One player who can’t stop writing, tweeting and generally blabbing about the massive event is Canadian Poker mega star Daniel Negreanu. This player is one of the most instantly recognisable faces of the game and is constantly appearing on television in both live events as well as online games. In the wake of the Black Friday events Negreanu left his home in Las Vegas, Nevada and returned to his native Canada in order to continue playing the online game. The WCOOP will provide him with an excellent opportunity to ensure that this was the right decision as he looks to grab a big piece of the pot in the coming days. As one of the faces of PokerStars Negreanu is often talking about their events and issues, recently he tweeted about their technical issues to reassure players that they were under control. He is known not to shy away from the major issues of the day and strongly criticised Full Tilt Poker when they were involved in a spat with fellow poker megastar Phil Ivey over their refusal to payback their player’s funds. The Canadian player isn’t just valued for his poker skills but also for his business acumen. The Vice President of the World Series of Poker (WSOP), Ty Stewart, said of Negreanu that “He’s the complete package. There are many brilliant thinkers on the poker side but he understands the business and marketing side as well as anyone is able to.” He even went as far as saying “I’d happily work for him one day.” Negreanu is known for associating not just with poker players but also with the executives who run the tournaments, offering advice on how to improve their services and attract more players. Even Phil Helmuth admits that Negreanu is one helluva businessman saying “Yeah, he’s definitely a good ambassador for poker,” Hellmuth admitted. “He’s a really good one, maybe great. He generates a lot of interest amongst fans all across the planet. People want to watch him play, hear his shtick, you know?”

Winslow puts online poker on the debate
Winslow puts online poker on the debate Choose your language Thursday, Jan 19, 2012 Home > Poker News > Winslow puts online poker on the debate by Sunday ,9 Oct 2011 There is good news for online poker fans in Massachusetts as online poker is on the table for debate Things are looking up for those who enjoy online poker in Massachusetts as their representative, Daniel Winslow, introduces a new amendment to a bill that would see more gambling in the state. The amendment would see the state gaming commission called upon to “establish a committee to analyze and develop recommendations and model legislation” as well as “include an analysis of applicable federal and state law,” in a report that would need to be ready by July 2012.The amendment is a very small, though potentially significant half page addition to a bill that is already 164 pages long. The majority of the bill details very carefully how the state will implement live casino gaming rather than facilitate gaming online. The amendment was probably kept short on purpose so as not to affect the way any of the state representatives are likely to vote. The bill was in fact passed by the House with a massive margin at 123-32 and now has to be ratified by the state senate. The bill is to be discussed by the senate at the end of September.For internet poker to be legalised in the Massachusetts area all that has to happen now is that the senators pass the bill in full without referring to Winslow’s half page addition. There is still a long way to go before online poker becomes state law. This is particularly because the bill goes through the ‘conference’ phase that ensures the bill passed by the senate is the same as that passed by the House. The governor will still have to agree to the plan as will the legislature ensuring that there is a lengthy process ahead for those who enjoy online poker in the Bay State with pundits expecting that not before 2013 will players be able to take to the virtual felt if at all.Many fans of the game will take it as a victory that the introduction of online poker is even up for debate. In the past 10 years there have been attempts to introduce legislation for online gaming into other bills that have fallen flat and even discussion of it was considered taboo. The truth of the matter is that regardless of what the state decides the real decision is going to depend on what happens in Washington DC as lawmakers are already debating whether or not to maintain the nationwide ban still in effect.

The EPL lives up to expectations
by Sunday ,4 Sep 2011 It was a massive million dollar prize for the winner of the first EPL tournament The inaugural Epic Poker League tournament is finished with David “Chino” Rheem now a million dollars richer after fighting his way through a pool of professional poker pros to take the prize money and the title. The tournament took place at the Palms Resort in Las Vegas and featured a final table composed of some of the best poker players around. The top three consisted of Rheem along with the legendary Eric Seidel and the player ESPN rank top in the world, Jason Mercier. Rheem is no stranger to tough competition, he won well over one and a half million dollars for seventh place at the Main Event of the 2008 World Series of Poker (WSOP) and $1.7 million for winning the World Poker Tour (WPT) Five Diamond Classic in 2009. None of these experienced pros put a foot wrong during the final table and it was an incredible 80 hands before the first player was knocked out. At the start of the day, Huck Seed was looking good after doubling his stack but was taken down by Mercier’s AK. Once Mercier took the lead it was almost impossible to stop him and he went on to eliminate Gavin Smith soon after. It was a coin toss as he went all in pre-flop with 99 only to be called by Mercier’s pocket Queens which held to see Seed off with a prize of a little over $150,000. It was then that Rheem decided to get into the action and knocked out Hasan Habib. At the start of play Habib had put himself at the top of the tournament but had been steadily bleeding chips on the final table until pushing all in with pocket sixes only to be bested by Rheem’s pocket sevens. Once down to the final three it was Mercier and Seidel who really went to war, with Rheem largely sitting to one side and letting them get on with it. It was the consummate professional, Seidel who managed to win the battle when he pushed all in with KJ and was called by Mercier’s 9 8. When the players saw a king on the flop they knew it was all over for Mercier and the last two were heads up. Eventually Rheem took Seidel out with A K against A Q once all the cards were on the board Rheem had a flush, the prize money and the title of champion.
Alosta Rounders Kill the Tabels & The Props
Funny post on the Alosta Rounders site — some guy named Bert got MANHANDLED for €100 — and had to hand over signed money to Alosta Rounders member Tim J. The Alosta Rounders are probably the most famous western-European poker collective, and they obviously don’t need the €100. Therefor, Tim J. decided to use the money…. as interior decoration. Ha!

Jamie Gold Poker
by Thursday ,6 Oct 2011 Jamie Gold has started his own free poker site on the ZEN network with $100,000 up for grabs every month Although all poker players and those who work in the industry are well aware of the name Jamie Gold he has worked hard to keep a low profile since winning the $12 million first prize at the 2006 World Series of Poker (WSOP), still the biggest prize ever paid out to a winner of the main event. Gold is a quiet and highly focussed player who up until now has refused any and all attempts to persuade him to start a poker site of his own. Now he has changed his tune and has started his own free poker site to provide a platform for players in the US to legally play poker and win cash and various prizes as a reward for their play.The poker player has really put his money where his mouth is as he is offering at least $100,000 in cash to players every month. When talking about the new site Gold told the press that “After Black Friday and all the negativity surrounding online poker, I asked myself what I could do to help our community enjoy playing a game they love legally…Creating FreeGoldPoker.com was the clear answer.” He went on to explain just how it was that he came to the he came to the decision to start the completely legal poker site;“This is an amazing opportunity for me to create a fun, accessible and unique experience for the poker community. As importantly, I will be able to continue to accomplish meaningful, vital and life-changing charitable goals with the additional support and commitment of the ZEN platform. It will also provide my dedicated partners a platform beyond anything I could have imagined as we are now able to create targeted demographic promotions.”There is a great deal of talk around the ZEN network as free poker sites continue to pop up all over the web. The use of sweepstake laws has allowed anyone with the cash to create a perfectly legal space to allow people to play the game that they love. These sites are particularly popular with casinos looking to maintain their clientele with free poker action. The sites serve another purpose, the industry is currently preparing for a change in the law and when online poker is legalised Gold’s site and all of the others will switch to being regular poker sites and already will have players ready to spend their cash.

I’m losing for October
For some reason I can’t get a winning session under my belt for this month. It sucks as I’ve been playing close to my A-game, but I’m really being slaughtered by cold deck situations (nights with 3 set-over-set instances etc, it sucks badly)… Yesterday I lost a big chunk of my bankroll in a rollercoaster I can only describe as sick… Flopped quad tens to get rivered by Quad kings (all the money went in on the turn, obv nothing he could do — but still), made a straight flush and LOST against the higher straight flush and flopped a set of sixes only to get beat by a set of aces that decided to smoothcall pre-flop… BAH October 8, 2008 | In Personal, Quads, Straight Flush, gambling, poker | No Comments RSS feed for comments on this post.

Affiliates are going crazy wondering about their money
by Tuesday ,27 Sep 2011 The poker affiliate payments site rakeupdate.com has been defaulting on payments sending ripples though out the industry Just as the Full Tilt Poker scandal seems to finally be wrapping up there is yet another one around the corner. Professional poker players around the world have been using the services of rakeupdate.com for some time now only to find that the firm have been unapproachable for the past month. Despite repeated efforts to contact them players haven’t managed to get a response from the firm. It has been six weeks since the company’s network provider, Elite Affiliate Software stopped providing services to the firm due to non-payment of their funds. There is more than $1 million owed to clients and it doesn’t look like they are going to see their money any time soon.Unlike with Full Tilt Poker it looks like personal problems between the owners of the company have led to its downfall. There was a power struggle in the company as to who was ultimately in charge between the two biggest personalities involved, Mike Haid and Daniel Persson, it was Persson who who ultimately won with Haid and several other key employees walking away from the firm. This was a year ago and the service offered by the sites run by the firm immediately suffered. Players are said to have lost massive amounts of money since the firm stopped responding to players requests.In an interesting angle on the events of Black Friday that poker players don’t usually hear about, the people at Rake Update also suffered massive problems owing to the fact that the big payment processors pulled out of the United States, they were particularly hard hit when Moneybookers and Neteller walked away from the market. When that happened they had to rely exclusively on gaming firms that were operating in contrast to US gaming laws including almost exclusively Full Tilt Poker. When the CEREUS Network and Full Tilt were taken down by the Department of Justice (DoJ) there were no more funds coming into rakeupdate.com and yet they were still paying out funds to customers. It was inevitable that they were going to implode the question was only the timing, of course none of this was known until later. The effects of this problem are far reaching indeed, although not on the scale as with Full Tilt Poker the ripples have still been sent throughout the industry.
