DIVING IN POKER'S SHARK CAGE
2013-11-26

Pokerstars marketers have come up with a novel reason to hold satellite qualifiers online - a new television show titled "The Shark Cage" which will feature a prize of $1 million.

The first two televised heats of the show will take place at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in January 2014, according to a Pokerstars statement Monday.

The Shark Cage is a series of eight heats geographically dispersed across the company's European Poker Tour stops next year. The climax will be a final table in which survivors will compete for the winner-takes-all $1 million.
As the title implies, this will be a shark-puller, with each heat comprising one online qualifier and five killer pros - a daunting but stimulating prospect and one that should generate plenty of interest among the bold and the skilled.
The show will focus on fun, table talk, and include rules such as Play Against the Clock (30 seconds to act), Dont Get Bluffed (rewards and penalties for successful and unsuccessful river bluffs), and No Deals (winner-take-all first prize, no deals allowed).
To be in with a chance of winning a trip to the Caribbean in January, and play in one of the televised heats with a chance to take a shot at the $1 million first prize later in the year, PokerStars players simply need to make a deposit using one of the bonus codes on the Pokerstars website to get a ticket or tickets to the qualifying tournaments that take place each day from November 25-30 at 15.00 ET.
Each qualifying tournament will have a $5,000 added cash prize and the top 50 players from each of the six qualifiers will get a chance to audition for The Shark Cage TV show. To do this, a qualifying player simply needs to record a video audition in English, upload it to YouTube and then email the link to sharkcage@pokerstars.com no later than 23.59 ET on December 8.
The PokerStars Team will judge the entries based on personality, enthusiasm, humour and talent, and will contact the top finalists for phone interviews before announcing the winners on Dec 17.

KROON HOLDS ON TO CHIP LEAD ON WORLD SERIES OF POKER DAY 2C
2013-07-12

Day 2C action in the World Series of Poker main event has been completed, with big poker names falling like ninepins in the action Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas NFL Futbol Americano Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online SITRAK C7H Costa Rica , and Mark Kroon still in the driving seat with 507,300 in chips, having started the day as chip leader.
Among those busting out of the main event during Day 2C were: Jason Mercier, Matthew Ashton, former WSOP main event champs Jamie Gold and Joe Hachem, Joe Serock, who tried to play on despite a road accident and a short spell in jail, top sports celebs Roberto Luongo and Gerard Piqu, Daniel Negreanu, UK ace Sam Trickett, Davidi Kitai, Jen Harman, Eric Baldwin, Joseph Cheong, Pieter de Korver,
Making it through to Day 3, when the survivor fields combine for the first time and the 648 player money bubble hoves into view, are bracelet record-holder Phil Hellmuth, ace players Phil Ivey and Michael Mizrachi, Haralabos Voulgaris, Vladimir Geshkenbein, Dirk Van Luijk, Jean-Robert Bellande, Glen Chorny and Stephen Chidwick.
Mizrachi had an up-and-down sort of day, at one point leading the field with a stack of well over half-a-million, only to see it depleted, then somewhat recouped toward the end of day's action.
Gus Hansen and Tom Dwan, who famously allowed most of their Day 1c chips to be blinded away whilst they played cash games at the Aria, pitched up today, but unsurprisingly were eliminated from the Main Event after a relatively short stay on the tables.
The top ten chip counts at the end of Day 2C were:
Mark Kroon 507,300
Victor Figueroa 460,600
William Reymond 405,000
Michael Mizrachi 394,600
Ryan Olson 364,700
Peter Kamaras 354,400
Yann Dion 348,200
Jean-Robert Bellande 320,900
Denis Pisarev 312,500
Dale Roesel 303,400
The official numbers of players going through to Day 3 are awaited.

MASTER CLASS IN POKER
2012-10-31

Top live and online poker ace Phil Ivey appears to have ambitions in the poker coaching field, evidenced by a recently launched website that is at present seemingly putting together a mailing list / customer base through an otherwise largely inactive site.
Iveypoker.com invites visitors to subscribe, but bigger things are clearly in prospect with reports that Ivey is signing up a star-studded team of poker pros that includes current World Series of Poker final table chip leader Greg Merson, Patrik Antonius and Jenn Harmon.
ESPN reports that Ivey plans to improve players' skills through the free-to-play internet site and instructional vids, and that he told the TV company he wants to give players an opportunity to improve and compete against some of the best names in the game
What were doing here is teaching people how to become a winning poker player," Ivey told ESPN. "I think a lot of people really dont know how to play poker, and I think this is going to be an opportunity to play with the best players in the world.
