Gus Hansen is back (Written by: Venice at 04-07-2018 - 03:29 PM)

I see that Gus Hansen has made a return to the online tables. Apparently he was $20 million down in the hey-day, so not surprisingly he took a bit of a sabbatical!!

The poker gods welcomed him back with a smile, with him picking up a couple of huge pots on on Party Poker, $206,000 and $336,000 in PLO

Phil Ivey loses at Supreme Court (Written by: Venice at 10-25-2017 - 03:13 PM)

I see that Phil Ivey lost his Supreme Court case against Crockfords. The casino were allowed to retain the £7.7 million they refused to pay out. The judge refered to it as a carefully executed sting (by Ivey)

This was like 5 years ago in London, where he was accused of edge-sorting whilst playing Punto Banco.

A sting sounds harsh considering the casino agreed the rotation of the cards. Feels like he got freerolled to me.

Dutch bill for modernisation Casino approved. (Written by: DrJustice at 02-03-2017 - 12:56 PM)

On 31st of January the Parlement approved the bill for modernisation of the current law on Casino's.

If the "Upper house" agrees to the bill our parlement approvement it means an end to monopoly position of Holland Casino, our only legal Casino that is allowed to offer table games (i.e. Poker, BlackJack and Roulette).

However company's that want to run a casino in the Netherlands still need to apply for a license. So having actually legal Pokerroom's is still a few years away.

Currently planning is the law to be active 1st of July 2018. Under the current law there gonna be 2 extra licenses available in addition of the current 14 licenses.

Nothing is being said about online poker in the current bill, so we have to wait for more details to come out.

Jason Mercier strikes again in $10K Horse (Written by: DrJustice at 06-18-2016 - 11:37 AM)

Jason Mercier just won his 2nd bracelet in a week and is aiming for a third bracelet to win "infinite money" for all the prop bets.

Among those prop bets is one with Vanessa Selbst for a 180:1 on winning three bracelets this summer.

Earlier this week Jason Mercier won the $10K 2-7 lowball Championship as well as a 2nd place in the $10K Razz.

In the $10K Horse, Jason started today with a chiplead with 14 remaining. However according to Jason he couldn't remember having such a hard final table, mainly because of the rollercoaster. He went from 2.5 Million to 700K. And during the heads-up he had 7:1 chip disadvantage over runner-up James Obst.

1 Jason Mercier USA $422.874
2 James Obst Australia $261.354
3 Nick Schulman USA $183.779
4 Adam Friedman USA $131.519
5 Mikhail Semin Russia $95.817
6 Jesse Martin USA $71.089
7 Yuval Bronshtein IsraŽl $53.729
8 Bryn Kenney USA $41.383
