Posted on Wednesday, February 08, 2012 by "T".

The Russian poker community has lost one of its greatest players as poker pro Nikolay Evdakov passed away on Monday this week. He died at the age of only 47 and no reason to his sudden death has been given.

Evdakov made a name for himself in the poker world during the 2008 World Series of Poker when he beat the most cashes during one WSOP record. In total, he cashed in 10 events and his best result was a 14th place in the $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha event. Last year he reached the quarter finals in the WSOP $25k NLH heads-up event, and the year before that he finished 9th in the World Poker Tour Final.

The funeral of Nikolay Evdakov will be held in his hometown next Wednesday. Rest in peace!

He's the world's worst poker player

Tags: losing poker player, russia, scout326, worst poker player
Posted on Friday, April 09, 2010 by "T".

According to a Danish poker magazine the worst player in the world is the unknown poker (until now?) player "Scout326" from Russia. He has played 78,000 hands and lost about $2 million dollars at PokerStars. "Scout326" has tried his luck at all kind of stakes in his favorite game NL Holdem - from as little as $1/$2 to as much as $25/$50. However, no matter what stakes he has been playing with -- the results have been terrible. "Scout326" has lost the most money at the stakes $25/$50, -$737,000.

"Scout326" is for sure someone who poker players stand in line to play against. And after looking a bit closer at his game, I have to say that it looks like even the average player could win quite easy against him if he continues this way. So, who's "Scout326"? All we know is that he's Russian and that he's someone with a lot of money. Would be really cool if an interview with him shows up somewhere in the near future.

Poker is no longer a sport in Russia

Tags: casino, law, poker, russia, vladimir putin
Posted on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 by "T".

On the 1st of July, 2009, a new law which forced casinos and slot machine halls to close down went into effect. The idea to this new law was brought to life during the time when Vladimir Putin was the president of Russia. Many casinos/slot machine halls already back then started to transform their premises into poker rooms, because poker was classed as a sport, and therefore it was legal to organize cash games and tournaments. But now, live poker is also banned in Russia and over 400,000 people that used to work at casinos, slot halls, and poker rooms, are now without jobs.
