PartyPoker Million is finally finished
The final of the PartyPoker Million tournament with a buy-in of $ 215 and a million-dollar guarantee was to take place on November 3, but the organizers had to cancel it due to a malfunction in the client. The tournament took place on November 10.
The winner was the player under the nickname Velazquez76, earning $ 152,700. This victory was for the poker player the end of the “bad streak,” because before that he had lost more than $ 20,000 within a month.
The final of the tournament gathered 914 entries, and 728 poker players received payments. The prize fund was $ 931,600, as a result of which the overlay amounted to almost $ 70,000.
One of the PartyPoker ambassadors, Richard “RichyDubini” Dubini, is the only team in this poker room who managed to get into the top 20 finalists of the tournament. He was in 14th place with a prize of $ 5,400.
Well, as I can see, Partypoker Million did not collect the required number of registrations to cover the warranty. A turnout of 914 participants resulted in an almost $ 70,000 overlay. But this is not a serious shortage to cancel the event. And the coming weeks will show whether the returning tournament will be able to gain a foothold in the “Party” lobby.
Sam Soverel won ME Poker Masters and got the Purple Jacket
Sam Soverel won ME Poker Masters and won the Purple Jacket. The final table started with six players, including pros such as Chris Haniken, Elio Fox, Stephen Chidwick, Set Davis, Ali Imsirovich and Sam Soverel. Ali Imsirovich was the first who left the game. He was not lucky enough to become a bubble fight. If you want to know more about the results, read this article.
Sam will go down as one of the most impressive players in a single poker tournament series. Congratulations! We wish him even greater victories in the future!
As for the other results of Poker Masters, we note the successful performance of Canadian Kristen Bicknell there. Having won a $ 25,000 buy-in tournament, she was the first lady to submit to the series trophy.
Power Up will be replaced by two new PokerStars hold ’em formats
It has been announced that a hold ’em Power Up format will be vanished from the PokerStars lobby. It’ll be quickly replaced by two new titles, released at the end of this year.
2 new games will be designed in a marine theme at PokerStars. They will be called Deep Water and Tempest. By now we don’t know the rules, but it is already known that antes will vary in size. The new format will be checked for 9 weeks. If they become popular among gamblers, they will stay on the platform. Otherwise, they won’t be available on the website.
For better or worse, we will find it out over time. Regular players may say goodbye, but the other ones stay and are happy to try these new formats. I think this is great news. Let’s wait for it!
November 16 was the first gaming day of the Super High Roller Bowl in the Bahamas, which collected 43 entries. The buy-in to this tournament is $ 250,000. In this event, there are many popular high rollers throughout the poker world.
The High Roller Tournament is a part of the Caribbean Poker Party, which kicked off these days in the Bahamas. The first day’s chip leader was Justin Bonomo, who packed 1,274,000 (212 BB) of chips. Right after him comes Steve O’Dwyer with a stack of 1,007,000 (167 BB). These two players will feel comfortable at the beginning of the second day with a stack of +150 BB.
It is a very exciting event. The best poker players will take part in the tournament. And I’m quite confident that the champion will find the poker result as one of the greatest. Let’s wait for the next results.
Who is the owner of the Platinum Pass from PokerStars?
In August next year, Barcelona will host a large-scale event PSPC 2020. The tournament will be played with great guarantees and an abundance of poker stars at the table.
Not everyone can afford to go and play there and that’s why PokerStars raffle off packages worth $ 30,000 over the course of the year. Three such trips have already found their owners in November.
Who are they, the owners of a ticket to the poker series in Barcelona for $ 30,000?
A former student from England
Oliver fought for 4 hours at the Platinum Pass Experience and won a ticket to the PSPC 2020 for $ 30,000.
Before this event, he managed to go through all five qualifying tournaments and has already begun to prepare for the upcoming trip seriously. The coveted package was handed to Oliver by Chris Moneymaker himself.
A Worker from the Newcastle Industrial Center
The second person to receive the Platinum Pass was a worker from the Newcastle Industrial Center. The guy is 32 years old and he lives in the industrial area of Newcastle. Daniel won the prize for winning the Chris Moneymaker tour on the road to the PSPC.
A shopkeeper from Madrid
Cordeiro de Santos became the third owner of the Platinum Pass. He managed to win the tournament, which was attended by 812 poker players.
Compared to other lucky ones, Cordeiro is a real newcomer to poker, but despite this, his goals are ambitious and he is highly motivated to win PSPC 2020.
Anyway, these guys could hardly imagine that they would win Platinum Pass and their lives would change. Oliver was a student and now he has a ticket to PSPC 2020, Cordeiro de Santos also has a chance to win a small fortune. I don’t have favourites among the gamblers but wish them good prizes. Let’s see how they will play.
