POKERSTARS UNVEILS EUROPEAN POKER TOUR GRAND FINAL PLAN
2014-02-04

Online poker provider Pokerstars has announced that its European Poker Tour Grand Final will again be part of the successful Monaco Festival at the famous Monte Carlo Casino in Monaco.
A total of 48 events are planned over the eleven days of the festival, and the organisers have included more $500 or less buy-in tournaments than any other EPT stop.
Taking place from April 23 to May 2, the EPT Grand Final will be held in collaboration with the France Poker Series (FPS) for the first time at the EPT Monaco festival.
There will be two main events: a Euro 1,100 buy-in FPS tournament, and a $10,600 buy-in EPT main event.
"The EPT has been leading the way in live poker for ten years, and this years EPT Grand Final will be the biggest and best ever," said EPT president Ed Stauchly this week.
"With more tournaments than ever before at lower buy-ins alongside our other events, plus a wide range of cash games, a greater variety of players will be able to experience the EPT, creating a fuller festival atmosphere."
The full schedule is available on the Pokerstars website.




WORLD SERIES OF POKER NEARS 2013 FINAL TABLE
2013-07-23

It was another day of nfl football betting Online Bingo Play Slots Online in US NFL Betting Lines thrills and, for some, acute disappointment at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas Sunday as Day 6 played to an early conclusion after four levels, with the survivor field of 68 reduced to just 27 going forward to Day 7 and the composition of this year's Main Event final table now in sight.

Befitting the achievement of outlasting an original field of 6,352 and a week of tough, uncompromising poker, the 27 players going forward are all now assured of six-figure cashes.

Going into Day 7 on Monday, Anton Morgenstern of Germany leads the pack on 21,955,000 chips - way ahead of his closest opponent, France's Sylvain Loosli on 14,125,000.

Boosting interest in the event is the continued survival of former WSOP main event champion Carlos Mortenson, and the sole remaining member of last year's final table, Steven Gee. Mortenson is at position 6 with 10,790,000 chips and Gee is further down the leadboard at 23rd on 3,160,000.
The chip leader when Day 6 started, Sami Rustom, suffered a reversal of fortunes and was eliminated at 39th for $185,694.
Also gone is the last female player still standing this year, Jackie Glazier of Australia, who tangled with Sergio Castelluccio only to lose and depart tearfully in 31st place for a well-earned $229,281.
Among the 27 who will return to the felt for Day 7 are, as previously noted, 2001 Main Event champion Carlos Mortensen and 2012 final tabler Steve Gee. Joining them will be respected players like Yevgeniy Timosenko, David Benefield, JC Tran, Amir Lehavot and Rep Porter.
The Top Ten chip counts going into Day 7 are:
Anton Morgenstern Germany 21,955,000
Sylvain Loosli France 14,125,000 -150,000

NEW POKER PLAYER APP
2013-04-24

Newly arrived in the iGoogle store is a free Android platform app that enables poker players to get an immediate assessment of the odds and value of each hand as the action unfolds.

The Poker Odds app comes from a French developer and is an application that recognises a poker game via a smartphone camera, assesses the odds and value and delivers this information immediately to the player.

Poker fans using the app can also manually choose specific cards, random cards or a range of cards to calculate the odds.

The app supports Texas Hold'em at present, but other poker genres will be developed going forward, the first probably Omaha. There are also plans to add a social communication element, enabling users to share visuals and data.

Features of the app include:

* Recognition of the game via the camera (each hand and the board)
* Display the equity and value (or odds value at the river) for each hand.
* Easy interface for smartphones and tablets.
* Choice between specific cards, random cards or hand range for each player (up to 10).
* Dead cards
* Full enumeration (exact result) or Monte Carlo Simulation (approximation) depending on the hands texture.
* No need for internet: calculations are done on the mobile device of the user.

PROS PREFER INTERNET TO RISKY TORONTO POKER ROOMS
2012-11-06

The Canadian publication The National Post carried an interesting feature on the safety of physical vs. internet poker rooms in Toronto over the weekend, observing that poker players relocating to the city from the legally restrictive poker environment in the United States prefer the internet.
Much of the article deals with the reputation and problematic safety of underground poker games, with anecdotes of players plagued by police raids or attacks by armed robbers attracted by the often large sums of money on the tables, painting a picture of a risky environment.
It also portrays a number of big name online and tournament players who have made large sums of money playing poker, illustrating the potential of poker for those with the skill and determination to pursue a career in the game.
"Every night, basements and backrooms across Toronto are packed with gamblers looking for a poker fix - and grinders looking to make the rent," The National Post notes. "Stakes are high, venues are shady and players are haunted by armed robberies and police raids alike. But while Torontos seedy gambling underbelly has spawned some of Canadas greatest poker talent, its storied reign may be coming to an end."
That end could be precipitated by a new generation of players' preference for the internet, the piece implies.
In the concluding paragraphs the article quotes younger poker pros who have never set foot in an underground game and have little inclination to do so, preferring the safety of the online environment with big, well regulated internet poker sites.
In addition to building large bankrolls online, this new type of player sharpens skills in internet games, with many then going on to success in international and well regulated land-based tournaments.
"In Toronto, their ranks are swelling. In recent months the city has become an online poker haven as dozens of American refugees were sent north last year by a U.S. crackdown on online poker," the National Post reports, adding that among them is 24-year-old Maryland native Greg Merson, fresh from winning the $8.5-million first prize at the World Series of Poker main event (see previous InfoPowa reports).
One young poker pro told the publication: All of the pros I know are like myself, in that they play primarily online, where in my opinion there is much more opportunity to earn a steadier and more substantial income, without breaking any laws.
Another said: Real pros sharpen their skills playing online, where its actually highly competitive and challenging.
The article concludes: "Online players dont have to worry about travel time or personal safety, and they can play upwards of nine tournaments at once - quickly amassing a level of experience that the pros of yesteryear could only dream of."
