Like all soldiers, Ken Griffin was ingrained with a relentless desire to win. In only his third event at the World Series of Poker, that’s exactly what he did.

Griffin, a 34 year-old from Texas, captured his first Gold Bracelet early Tuesday morning. The win came in Event #45, a No Limit Hold’em match featuring a $1,000 buy in. A field of 2,890 participants signed on for a shot at the winner’s seat, bringing the prize pool to $2,601,000.

A ten-year member of the United States Marines, Griffin has spent long stretches on active duty in Iraq. Following his honorable discharge, he has returned to the Middle East to serve as a private contractor. Now, he’ll have some flashy new jewelery to display to his fellows.

Initially, Griffin wasn’t expected to attend the bandar judi pulsa . Yet, having returned to the states to care for his ailing mother, he …

Over the past week, I’ve seen quite a bit. Last night, a 75-year-old man fell down beside me. I thought he just tripped. When ten security guys came to his aid and eventually took him by force out of the poker room, I realized he was drunk. Thirty minutes later, another man who had been playing $1/$2 NL all night was nearly dragged from the room by security after spilling a drink all over a table full of people who hated him. Last week, a man literally stood in his chair and rained handfuls of $100 bills down on the table while he was making a bet. All the while, two guys were sitting over at a back table playing Chinese sbo Poker for $100 a point.

And all around them there are people playing everything from $4/$8 to games that could fund the Salvation Army for a year. …

Full Tilt 신규가입 꽁머 multi-annual poker series features a whole range of different events. Along with games from Omaha to Razz, there are also plenty of different format variations to keep high-stakes tournament junkies on their toes. Conventional ideas like shootouts and deepstacks make their mark as well as the cashout tournaments that are unique to Full Tilt. One of the more popular variants took center stage for Event #25, a 6-max Knockout contest that favored the pinup online aggressive player and awarded competitors who employed a ruthless streak. This was a $240 + $16 tournament, with $40 of the buy-in placed as a bounty on the head of every player. Whenever you eliminated an opponent, you collected his bounty, encouraging fast-paced play where big stacks develop very quickly.

Fondness for the format, along with a relatively low buy-in, encouraged 5,093 players to enter Event #25, one of the …

The U.S. House of Representatives’ Subcommittee for Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade will hold a hearing on online gaming tomorrow. Topics addressed in this hearing will include the safety of online gaming and likely a discussion of Congressman Joe Barton’s bill HR 2366. This bill seeks to legalize and regulate the online poker industry at the federal level.

This debate is an important step towards the future of online hk prize in the United States. Of the current law, Barton says “it’s lose-lose for everyone – the public, the taxpayer, the banking industry, and the people who want to play online poker openly and honestly on the internet”.

 

Poker Players Alliance (PPA) Chairman Alfonse D’Amato has been invited to this hearing as a witness. D’amato will testify on behalf of poker players, voicing concerns regarding important industry areas such as the need for independent audits of game fairness and segregation …

We’ve gone a few weeks without seeing any big progressive jackpot wins (and by big we mean six figures or more) but there have been a couple of big wins lately that have been worth waiting for!

There was a $4.2 Million winner of the Beach Life jackpot only last fall but it’s just been hit again, this time for a whopping €1.8 Million! A French player named Alain M. won this massive jackpot at Casino Europa. You don’t want to hear this – he’d only been playing a few minutes when he became an instant millionaire! Like we always say it really only takes one lucky spin to win!

Meanwhile Slotland has been writing cheques to players at both of their online slots sites. First they had a record-breaking $200K jackpot win at Slotland.com on the Heavy Metal game. Then, the very next week, they had their second six-figure …

I put a $100 bill on the crap layout and immediately thereafter, the three rolled making me an instant loser. It is not the poor timing I am complaining about, but what I actually wanted was change for my hundred as I am normally a $5, pass line bettor. My question is, are not dealers automatically supposed to exchange my money into chips? Jay M.

Depends, Jay, on where you put your $100 on the layout. Was it directly on the pass line? It is important because the old adage “money lays, it plays” is a cliche that can play–and pay–the casino.

 

True, some casinos automatically change you up into gaming tokens whether you put your hard-earned money on the layout or the pass line, but the word to notice here is “some.”

 

In many casinos, putting paper currency on the pass line indicates to the dealer that …
