Posted on 07 July 2011 by "T".

What a comeback by Brian Rast! He was down to about 2 million and almost out of the tournament a while ago. Now, about 10-15 minutes later, he's the champion and $1,720,328 richer! This was his second bracelet at the 2011 WSOP! Very impressive!

This is how the last 2 hands were played out.

Posted on 27 June 2011 by "T".

Yesterday, Arkadiy "Kamsky" Tsinis became the third Ukrainian-born bracelet winner at this year's World Series of Poker. This was Tsinis's first WSOP bracelet and the biggest win in his poker career. It remains a mystery why the Ukrainian poker players have been so successful at this year's WSOP - considering that they haven't won a single bracelet ever before. Now, suddenly - there are 3 WSOP champs!

Tsinis lives in Las Vegas these days, and he resided for many years in New York. And apart from being a fantastic poker player, Tsinis is a very good and successful Chess and Backgammon player as well. However, it's from poker that he has made his fortune. In total, he has cashed in 22 major tournaments and received $799,128. Expect to hear a lot more from Tsinis and other Ukrainian poker players in the near future!

Bodog signs Croatian babe Tatjana Pasalic

Tags: 2011 wsop, croatia, Tatjana Pasalic, team bodog
Posted on 06 May 2011 by "T".

Team Bodog has now been strengthened by the well-known poker profile Tatjana Pasalic. Pasalic, 26, is best known as a TV presenter, interviewer and freelance worker in the poker world. She came in contact with online poker at the age of 19 and played her first live tournament in September 2009 where she finished 47th out of 440 for $2,937. The year after she finished 6th out of 24 at the PartyPoker.com Women's World Open IV for $3,000.

Tatjana Pasalic will now get to play in the WSOP Main Event and other big tournaments for free with the rest of Team Bodog, so it's probably just a matter of time before she lay hands on a big cash. Pasalic has a very busy year ahead of her since she will continue working with media coverage on, for example, the WPT tour.

"While the US has obviously taken a hit in terms of poker, the game is thriving internationally and I expect to see a decent sized field in Madrid. Possibly down from last year, but I don't think the numbers abroad will decrease too much at all. In the US, I definitely think the numbers for events will shrink.

The number of players for the main event will likely revert back to 2004 type numbers in the 3000 range."
