Tags: full tilt poker, high stakes, isildur1, viktor blom
Posted on Wednesday, February 05, 2014 by "T".

Everyone's favourite Swede Viktor "Isildur1" Blom has had a massive upswing in the last couple of weeks. According to online-tracking site highstakesdb, over a $1 from his winnings come from heads-up matches (between January 14-17) against PokstflopAction. Blom is the biggest winner online this year with a total profit of $2,154,113 (48,517 hands)!

In 2013, he was up over 5 million dollars during 3 incredible winning streaks. It will be interesting to see if he can beat that "record" this year - without losing most of it (he "only" bagged up a $542k profit in 2013 after a massive downswing that started in October).

Forget about Las Vegas and Antlantic City. Macau is the place where the big bucks are spent gambling. According to a recent article by CNN NewSource, Macau (a territory in China which lies on the Western side of the Pearl River Delta and was the first and last European colony in the country) had a gambling revenue of 360 billion patacas ($45 billion) in 2013 - an increase of almost 20% over the previous year! To put that amount into perspective, Las Vegas is lucky to have made a $6.5 billion in 2013 (15% of Macau's total). This means that Macua's gambling industry currently is 7 times greater than Vegas!

PokerStars Moves High-Stakes Games to Zoom

Tags: face-paced poker, high stakes, zoom
Posted on Friday, January 03, 2014 by "T".

Since January 1, 2014, all $50/$100 NLH and PLO cash games on PokerStars are played via Zoom - the site's fast-paced way to play poker (if you fold a hand, you will be moved to another table with different players). According to PokerStars, the change was requested by its players and it's not a permanent change for now.

"PokerStars developed a special High Stakes Zoom product with an eye toward replacing all High Stakes games with Zoom, and it's now time to put it to a test," said Nick Williamson, Ring Game Manager for PokerStars, in an interview in December, 2013.

"Our players have told us that they want to focus on playing poker, rather than worrying about seating, lobby and software settings to get them the best seat at the table. This is in an effort to allow players to concentrate on actually playing poker while encouraging a healthy, competitive, non-predatory environment in our highest stakes games," said Williamson.

Durrrr Challenge Returns in August

Tags: daniel cates, durrrr challenge, full tilt poker, high stakes, jungleman12, tom dwan
Posted on Thursday, August 01, 2013 by "T".

Just about three years ago, Tom "durrrr" Dwan and Daniel "jungleman12" Cates agreed to play 50,000 hands as a part of a heads-up challenge at Full Tilt Poker. The rules were that Dwan would get $500,000 from Cates if he won the challenge, and Cates would get $1,500,000 from Dwan if he won. Now, as you probably already know, the two pros have only played about 19,000 hands and it seems like a lifetime ago when they played last.

Now the good news... according to a forum post by Daniel Cates, the challenge is set to resume in August. Cates wrote that he and Dwan have agreed to play a minimum of 4,000 hands in August and a minimum of 8,000 hands the followings months until the challenge is completed.

Cates is currently holding the lead with a $1,251,059 profit after 19,335 played hands. Besides that, he's been running very good at Full Tilt Poker as of late, so you can't blame him for wanting to complete the challenge and, most probably, get $1.5 million from Tom Dwan.

Posted on Friday, June 07, 2013 by "T".

It's been quiet from Viktor "Isildur1" Blom since he took down the SCOOP 2013 Main Event in the end of May. The main reason for that is that he hasn't won nor lost any significant amounts at Full Tilt's nosebleed tables. Well, that was until yesterday when he took on Gus Hansen at the 2-7 Triple Draw and the FLO8 tables. They started the session at the 2-7 Triple Draw tables and "The Great Dane" took the young Swede for about $100k until things took a big turn...

Posted on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 by "T".

On May 16th we wrote about Gus "The Great Dane" Hansen's incredible $1.57 million win in less than 24 hours. Hansen has been very active at Full Tilt's nosebleed tables since then but not managed to book a nice win until last Monday. He started the day by playing heads-up against Alex "Alexonmoon" Luneau at the $1k/$2k 2-7 Triple Draw Tables. The match lasted for four hours and Hansen dominated from start to finish and added $374k to his bankroll.

It's nothing new that Gus Hansen, of Denmark, has lost millions of dollars at Full Tilt Poker. Many of his fans hoped and prayed that things would change once the site reopened for business last year and signed him to its The Professionals, but the bitter truth is that he has continued to lose huge amounts month after month.

Posted on Thursday, May 16, 2013 by "T".

Yesterday, after 2 days of play, the final table of the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo European poker Tour Grand Final €100,000 Super High Roller saw 7 finalists battling it out for a prize pool of a whopping €4,851,000! Mike Watson and Scott Seiver, the two short stacks, hit the rail in 6th and 7th place although they managed two double up during the first hour of play.

Russian poker pro Vladimir Troyanovsky busted in 5th place after losing an all in with KQ vs AJ of Sorel Mizzi. Next to hit the rail was Timothy Adams. He shoved his remaining chips with 99 pre-flop and was called by Max Altergott holding A8. The flop brought an ace and the rest was history.
