NITSCHE CLAIMS THIRD POKER BRACELET
2014-06-11

Dominik Nitsche (23), a young poker ace from Minden in Germany has won his third World Series of Poker bracelet and $335,659 after emerging victorious from event 21, a $1,000 buy-in NLHE contest which attracted a field of 2,043 players.
This week he entered the WSOP record books as the youngest yet winner of three bracelets.
Despite his skill and experience, it was no walk-over for Nitsche, who faced a determined Dave D'Alesandro with a chip lead in the heads up, which proved to be something of an endurance test over 92 hands of highly competitive poker.
For much of that 92 hands Nitsche was hanging on by his fingernails, but he maintained discipline and late in the match managed to take and hold on to the lead and eventually eliminate his last and very tough opponent.
D'Alesandro exited with a hard-earned $208,931 as runner-up.
The rest of the final table claimed prizes as follows:
Badih Bounahra $145,229
Zachary Gruneberg $104,594
Thayer Rasmussen $76,443
Jeff Gross $56,549
Eric Milas $42,382
Billy Horan $32,168
David Burt $24,702




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 Shar Apuestas Deportivas Apuestas Rusia 2018 Online Bingo Rooms Play Bingo online k 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.

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.
