Play lost head

The two played pot-limit Omaha with blinds $500 / $1, 000. Isildur1 had approximately $640 K behind him while Ivey had $564 K. $ 1 million pot is played roughly thus:

A war of raises given a pot of $ 54,000 before even the first 3 cards are outputs.The flop gave Ks-Jd-Js and the 2 players check the flop. A 10 d comes on the turn.

Older women warned by the Cyprus police

The Cyprus Government maintains that playing cards for money l under your own roof is illegal, and that even the elderly are not excluded from this law. The Cyprus police has not hesitated to carry in prison 42 older women this week for playing cards in the privacy of their own home. Most of the women were aged between 75 and 85 years. The oldest was 95 years old and the youngest was 50. Women organized weekly parties in turn in their respective homes.

Ladies do perhaps disturb anyone with their games, but apparently they have a jealous neighbor. Police officers arrived at the home after receiving a complaint d a neighbor. He alleged that the property was used as a House of noisy games. We believe that the neighbor has not been invited, which aroused his jealousy.

The police confiscated 530 maps and 546 poker chips. The women allegedly played for around 100 euros each. They have been imprisoned and then released. They will likely receive nothing d other than a small fine if they are convicted.

"Most of my friends are widows and at our age, there is not much to do. For years, we organise parties every week, changing from Rotary way home. We get together, drink tea and play cards. We put into play only a few euros for s fun. The only thing the police managed to do during these raids is to ridicule the women a certain age. », said one of the participants, aged 87 years.

Tony G blog

The honcho of PokerNews, Tony G, is in London. Between the gym and the pizzeria, it decided to give us an overview of his use of the time. He was a little concerned at this time, since he worked on the development d a personal project.

If say you everything is in Tony's blog, you n would not read it. However, c is an excellent read.

Tony G is not the only one to work on his own account. Tom Dwan does with Full Tilt Poker.

Certainly not winning

Sophon Sek won the BC Poker Championship, last Sunday evening, for $364 364. Monday morning, he was in State of arrest. The 30-year-old player was intercepted in connection with the murders of six people in Surrey, in 2007. He has been charged with manslaughter and d introduction break-ins, but could possibly facing more serious charges.

The vice president of the Great Canadian Gaming Corporation, Howard Blank, said: "the RCMP has informed us that c was the candidate who won our tournament. The GRCa requested that the champion gains be retained. Therefore, the amount has not been paid to the winner. It was simply one of many local players who have been ousted. "

The fate of Sophon has completely changed. It would appear that lady luck is dedicated not only to the cause of pokers players, but also to the victims of tragedies.

A deadline for l UIGEA

The Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) would enter into force 1 December. However, the wish of US poker players has been granted Friday, when l UIGEA has been delayed until June 1. The Poker Players Alliance is definitely very excited by the deadline.
