    I am extraordinary blessed because I live in Las Vegas! One of the top four poker meccas in the United States. There are 28 rooms within 15 miles from where I live and they all have either cash games or tournaments or both.  (See BravePokerLive for details) Laughlin, Nevada has a half dozen poker rooms and is only 72 miles away. Add to that the dozens of poker rooms within 300 miles. Did I mention that Las Vegas also has Bar Poker as well?

    You won’t be able to predict how this incredible hand between two of poker’s most successful players, Jonathan Duhamel and Antonio Esfandiari, resolved. The bluffs snowball right off the bat, combining into one of those no-limit avalanches that can end with a breath of “all-in.” This is one of those hands you can’t fault the commentators for being unable to fully predict. Who could have seen it all coming? Was it Duhamel’s plan from the start? Did Esfandiari give something away? One thing we know for sure, you don’t always have to sniff out a bluff…

  • Abusive language in chat during online poker

    There is nothing that I find more upsetting than bullying at the online poker tables. This comes in the form of snide remarks and some times in veiled profanity, like breaking up the works “you are stu pid” or even stronger profanity will escape the notice of the client software that would ban such language. Finally I had enough and sent the chat to an online poker site saying that their programming should take care of this. Being a programmer in my past life, I know that this is doable but that it adds to the client overhead. Here is the response I got back: Good morning Stephen!

    Addressed to:  liaison@gcb.nv.gov Should Poker Sites that announce a Daily guaranteed game but fail to run or start that game let their players know why? For instance, an online poker site in Nevada announces a poker tournament with a guarantee will run at 18:00. But on or after 18:00, that game does not appear on the canceled list. Public inquiries using Twitter are made but no responses. The only part that answers is support via email and the usual answer is they are sorry it did not run. No explanation is given.

On April 30, 2013, Ultimate Poker started up, on a trial basis, offering No Limit Hold’em and Limit Hold’em to anyone physically located  in the State of Nevada, citizens and visitors alike. The State of Nevada had passed bills legalizing the playing of poker online. I think this was done because it appears that the U.S. Government was not going to pass bills allowing online poker on a nationwide basis. The start of Ultimate Poker was not smooth.

So when the ten-time WSOP bracelet winner took to Twitter recently to offer his endorsement to an online gaming site it inevitably turned heads. Ivey took time out this November to tell his Twitter followers to “check out” the newly launched PalaCasino.com. But what makes the development all the more interesting is the back story – or back stories – that play into this seemingly low key moment in the public spotlight. First of…

    So poker people are buzzing again about the promise of California for online poker. It’s true what RJ gaming reporter Howard Stutz says, that this market represents something of a holy grail for the liquidity dependent. But that’s also the reason I’ll stick by my assertions that California needs about half a country to go pro-poker before they get real about making a deal. Sorry for the buzzkill … but here’s a little Vegas Grinders outtake, recorded about three months ago, in which Andrew, Dave and I address whether or not online pokerers should be packing up their bags and…

Kihara won his title in 2012 in a $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Six-Handed event, and ever since he has been blazing a trail for poker in his homeland. In a country where the game is little played and even less understood Kihara’s $512,029 WSOP win earned him instant celebrity status, and he has not been slow to use that as a platform to…

    Small pocket pairs are quite popular hands in No-Limit Hold’em, they usually either flop big or nothing at all, and are consequently easy to play. Sometimes however you will not be quite so happy with your hand. Maybe it is paranoia, sitting there with your glass half-empty, considering a fold before your opponent turns over a complete air ball. Occassionally you’ll shovel in your stack to find your opponent has a better hand, leaving you both poorer and disgruntled. Once in a while you will consider the unthinkable option: folding your set!

  • Errant Message fools New Jersey into thinking Full Tilt Poker is coming

    Jeremy Olson
    24 Jan 2015 | 8:01 pm
    Last September, New Jersey State Senator Ray Lesniak was so sure that Amaya Gaming’s crown jewel, PokerStars, was about to launch in his state that he tweeted, “@PokerStars launch will spark an AC revival. Stay tuned for a major announcement…” Unfortunately for Lesniak, this proved a little premature and we’re still waiting on it to happen. But this doesn’t mean that players don’t continue to be teased with the notion of Amaya getting licensed in the Garden State. Case in point, Amaya’s other site, Full Tilt Poker, accidentally messaged players with…

    For the past few years, Macau has been the biggest source of high stakes poker action in the world. But as those fabled billionaire fish begin to exit the tables, some pros have been looking for action in other locations. Case in point, Dan “Jungleman12″ Cates, Tom Dwan, Jason Mo and businessman Richard Yong are all grinding in cash games at Manila’s Solaire Casino. So what dragged these pros to the Philippines to play poker? The chance to meet Manny Pacquiao? Rice terraces? The Chocolate Hills? Actually, according to SoMuchPoker, a $50/$100 table has opened up for both…
  • Gus Hansen to play Lower Stakes upon returning to Online Poker

    Jeremy Olson
    21 Jan 2015 | 8:23 pm
    Gus Hansen has been more and more absent from the online poker tables in recent months. And this is understandable, given that he’s lost almost $21 million in the iPoker world. But does this mean that Gus has totally given up on the game? Not actually, as he discussed in an interview with Pokernyhederne.com (see below). But when he does return to the virtual felt, Hansen expects to be playing some lower stakes. “I might have a plan to play some online in a smaller sense,” he said. “That could be 2/4, 5/10 Pot Limit Omaha to get in shape so you don’t get too…

    Even when Dan Bilzerian’s not at the center of trouble himself, the high stakes poker pro still finds his way into other people’s drama. Case in point, sports super agent Drew Rosenhaus and his wife, Lisa Thomson, reportedly had a blowout argument after she was photographed partying with “Blitz” and others. And it does’t look like Lisa was shy about bearing her body since she wore a skimpy bikini during the yacht party. TMZ has all the pictures along with the full story on the matter.

    Darren ‘DooshCom’ Woods has carved out a pretty nice poker career for himself, winning millions of dollars online and a 2011 WSOP gold bracelet. Unfortunately, it seems that some of this success may be attributed to Woods cheating his fellow players. Woods was arrested last year on suspicious of cheating in online poker games and defrauding the 888 affiliate program. And now, Judge Paul Watson QC has sentenced him to 15 months in prison along with an order to pay back £1 million to victims. Woods’ father, Morteza Gharoon, was also sentenced to six months in jail for…

    oooo
    26 Jan 2015 | 5:40 am
    Hi, today I was watching a class of a lawyer talking about the brazilian legislation and try to answer the question: "Is poker illegal in Brazil?" Well his conclusion was based on 3 laws, and he said that: -Tournaments of poker in Brazil are allowed, but cash games can be configured as "bet game" so therefore this type of NL hold'em should be considered illegal. Based on that, and observing other parts of the world, have anyone seen a specified type of poker been banned and other been illegal in the same country? Or generally it is permit/banned as a whole?

Although there was a good amount of back and forth as the action was tracked on Twitter for everyone’s benefit by Kyle Loman, Todd was just about always in the lead and by the end of the session, Beal had been felted.

Literally, 4 seconds. I just clicked random players so I would be eligible to register.

This meant including players like Shabazz Muhammad, Anthony Bennett, Aaron Books, Zach Lavine and Andrew Wiggins.

I wagered a total of $50 across 15 different cash games, even threw in some $5 games. Although I didn’t get swept, the day turned out to be a losing day (-$18). I wrote about the three players I would roster in every single lineup. As predicted, Dieng saw big minutes and performed well, producing 32.4 FDPs. The other two, well that’s a different story.

Since that time, the copycats have come out in full force with similar names such as Blaze Poker, Speed Hold'em, Zone Poker, FastForward, Zoom Poker, Fast Poker, etc. You get the idea. It is safe to say that fast-fold poker is now a staple of the online poker industry, providing impatient players with the option of being quickly jettisoned to a new table and a new hand when their starting hole cards are deemed unworthy of playing.

However, by the end of the night it was Brunson that walked away with $10 million.

SB 40 is designed to prevent sports betting proxies from placing bets (either for a fee or a share of the proceeds) without being properly licensed in the state, but based on its current language the bill would ostensibly make staking in poker tournaments a felony in the state, and this has some poker players extremely nervous.

The little-known Canadian B2B gaming company became an overnight sensation when it purchased PokerStars and all of its assets this past summer, a remarkable $45 billion deal orchestrated by company CEO David Baazov. In the lead up to the sale, and in the aftermath, Amaya stock was a hot commodity - volcano/supernova/surface of the sun hot - as the price went from $7 to $35. And when a stock sees that type of increase in just a few short months it usually draws the watchful eyes of regulators, which is precisely what happened to Amaya…
