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.
Florida Lawmakers Make Their Move, Offering Gambling Expansion Bill
Florida lawmakers have been wining and dining with Las Vegas casino executives for the better part of this year. On Wednesday, the executives started to receive their payback when a bill was filed that would make the Sunshine State one of the major casino gambling destinations in the US.The bill is only the first step in what is expected to be a long process towards full scale Vegas-style casino gambling in Florida. The legislation calls for the creation of the Florida State Gaming Commission, which would oversee all regulations and expansion of gambling in the state moving forward.The bill also would bring relief to a state budget deficit that is amongst the worst of any state in the country. The promise of billions of dollars in tax revenue, along with thousands of temporary and permanent jobs is what is driving the Republican-led Legislature to push the casino resort gambling bill.Analysts have assumed that full-scale gambling was in the cards in Florida since Genting bought the current home of the Miami Herald. The building will be the future home of Resorts World Miami, another in the growing list of luxury resorts by Genting. The company is based in Malaysia, but has spent much of the past decade expanding across the world. Miami is one of the two destinations the bill would authorize for casino resort licenses. Broward and Miami-Dade Counties are already considered to be the gaming center of Florida, and the destination resorts would only add to reputation Miami has of being one of the top tourist destinations in the US.Broward has the Seminole Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood that offers blackjack, baccarat, poker, and slots. The Seminoles are watching the state closely when it comes to gambling expansion. If the state passes the gaming bill proposed today, it could lead to a legal battle with the tribe. Seminole lawyers have maintained that if the state adds new casinos, the compact that was signed last year between the state and the Seminoles would be voided.Las Vegas Sands would seem to be the other gaming company to make out if the gambling bill passes in Florida. LVS CEO Sheldon Adelson has been pitching casino resorts to Governor Rick Scott since Scott was elected. One of the first trips Scott took last year when he was elected was on a private plane that is owned by Adelson.Experts still believe that a bill passing this year to expand gambling would be a reach. There is plenty of opposition in Florida to more gambling, especially in Central and Northern Florida. Currently, lawmakers are only looking to add destination resorts in Broward and Miami-Dade.

There are still options available for US poker players
by Sunday ,25 Sep 2011 In the wake of Black Friday US poker pros are still searching for a big game It’s a tough life for a poker player in the United States since the events of April 15th or Black Friday. An estimated 50,000 Americans made their living from playing poker online and overnight not only did they have their livelihoods taken away from them but also their savings. When the US Department of Justice swooped down on the biggest three poker sites in the world their accounts were frozen. In the case of Poker Stars it was just a temporary setback and their players all regained access to their accounts within a matter of days. With regards to Absolute Poker (CEREUS Network) and Full Tilt Poker players are still waiting for their money and it wouldn’t be unwise to assume that the money isn’t coming back any time soon.Poker players in the United States still have several options if they want to continue to ply their trade. They can leave their homes for a country that hasn’t outlawed online poker, Canada is a particularly popular choice. The problem is that the Canadians aren’t particularly excited about having poker players moving to their country and Canadian immigration authorities are now insisting that those moving across the border in order to play poker register their intention on their visa applications and have the intention of taxing them on their winnings. This leaves open the other option of moving to another country and simply living on a tourist visa making occasional trips away for the purposes of renewing their visa. The problem with this option is it means abandoning their homes. Not all players find success at the top level but most are grinders who make a living without becoming millionaires and they can’t just afford to pick up and leave everything behind.The live game in the US is experiencing something of a revival, probably owing to the collapse of the online game. There are casinos in many US states and they are expanding their card rooms to cope with the influx of poker pros looking for action. Although there isn’t as much money in the live cash games, the live tournaments, particularly the big ones such as the World Poker Tour offer hundreds of thousands of dollars in prize money, making them a very tempting target. The recent World Series of Poker is testament to the extent poker pros are willing to go to in search of finding a big poker pot to take.
Epic Poker Struggles With Attendance In Second Main Event
The Epic Poker League was born out of the notion that the best professional players in the world would be able to compete on a semi-regular basis for large amounts of tournament prize money. The pros felt that the member-only league, would eliminate so many amateurs snatching up prize money at tournaments around the world.The first event was a success, with 127 players entering. The second event, however, started this past week and the numbers were way down. Less than 100 players signed up to participate in event number two. Several reasons have been mentioned, but one stands out for many poker analysts. The prize money is simply not large enough.Players travel around the globe these days searching for tournaments and cash games where there is a big risk-reward factor. The reward in the second event of the Epic Poker League is over $700,000, but that is not enough to draw a crowd. Despite the low participant figures, some of the games biggest names did show up and compete. Mike Matusow, Phil Hellmuth, David Williams, Tom Dwan, Erik Seidel, and Huck Seed.Matusow appears to be the player that is moving forward with the biggest desire to win. The Mouth, as he is affectionately known, did not find a backer for the first Epic event, so he sat out the tournament. He is making his presence known in event two, with frequent tweets and even more verbal assaults at the tables.Poker was on the upswing in the US until the Department of Justice threw a wrench in the plans of millions of Americans. The top online poker sites in the world were indicted on Black Friday several months ago, and they soon after left the US market. That left millions of poker playing US citizens without a reliable place to play online.Thousands of poker enthusiasts had made online poker their occupation during the 2008 economic recession. With online gambling prohibition as strong as ever in the US, many of these poker players took to other countries to enjoy the game they had grown to rely on for income.Lawmakers in the US are slowly working towards a resolution to prohibition. Bills are on the table that would regulate online poker, and possibly allow the biggest poker sites in the world back into the US market. It is likely that US-based gaming companies would get the first crack at any licenses that come available for online gambling.

Poker players take to the casinos in huge numbers
by Thursday ,25 Aug 2011 In the wake of Black Friday many US poker pros have been making regular trips to the local casino The events of April 15th that have come to be known as Black Friday have left a huge mark on the online gaming community of North America. It is estimated that tens of millions of American citizens enjoyed playing poker online and thousands made their living from the game. An elite few were “fully sponsored pros” meaning that they were able to play with someone else’s money and split the profits. When the online game was taken away from citizens of the United States the thousands of men and women who depended on online poker for their livelihood were left without a source of income. Former online players have dealt with these changes in a number of ways. Some have left the United States for Canada and other countries where it is legal to play, others have gone to the local casinos to play in live tournaments and tables leading to a massive increase in the number of players playing live. One former fully sponsored pro poker player is Bryan Trischetta. The fact that he can’t play online anymore ensured that he had to start making regular visits to Mohegan Sun at Pocono Downs casino room to make some money. “It’s a numbers game,” He says of poker, the game he used to play on as many as 10 tables at the same time. “The more you play, the better you do.” Bryan’s highest place finish since playing live casino tables was $3,176 for a 6th place finish at the Mohegan Sun which was the biggest tournament in the history of the casino. “Until Black Friday, I came here to get away,” Trischetta laments. “Now, I’m coming all the time, primarily to play the tournaments.” Trischetta is still looking to produce the kinds of results that he was able to come up with everyday online and has done well in the events held at the casino having cashed in three of the four biggest events the Mohegan Sun has held since Black Friday. Each time he cashed he made it to the final table coming seventh out of 119 in April for $1,154 and ninth out of 102 in May for $618 in the $285 buy-in events. There are many players in the same position as Bryan, all of them attempting to make a living in the casinos of the United states.
Poker Network Ongame B2B Up For Grabs
by Thursday ,21 Jul 2011 Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment has decided to sell Ongame B2B poker one of its biggest assets While shockwaves are still being felt in the poker world after the events of Black Friday, when the United States effectively closed its doors to online poker, different gaming sites are responding to the change in different ways. At Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment the decision has been made to sell of one of its biggest assets in the form of the Ongame B2B poker network. The sale is expected to have been finalised by December 2011 if not before.Shareholders will be formally informed of the decision and the ramifications of that decision at the company’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Gibraltar. This news comes in the wake of disappointing numbers of players migrating to the poker network after Full Tilt Poker and the Absolute Network ceased being able to provide online poker to clients. Since not many players made the leap to t B2B network and it appears that another company is going to have the opportunity to build it up into a poker monolith.It hasn’t been a bad time for Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment whose share prices have soared over 11% since the closure of Full Tilt Poker. At the moment anyone with a poker site should be expecting an influx of former Full Tilt Poker players. That site had an average of 9,000 players sitting down at the virtual felt at any given time, all of whom are now going to be looking for a new place to play.The site that is expected to make the biggest gains from the changes in the poker world is Poker Stars, already the biggest poker site. With their biggest rival unable to offer any online services at the moment Poker Stars have made announcement after announcement to reassure players that their money is safe with them. Other gaming sites that are expecting to cash in on the demise of Full Tilt include William Hill Poker. Being a high street brand they can expect that UK players especially will be flocking to them as a known and trusted entity.William Hill Poker is on the ipoker network which is expecting to do well across all of its sites and has also begun emphasising the safe way in which it holds players funds for them while they play. For players it is both a worrying time for those who have their money locked away in the virtual vaults of Full Tilt but it is also a buyers market as sites all over the web begin new promotions to attract the surplus of players who now have to decide which site to switch to.
