Posted on 29 May 2012 by "T".

The mysterious high-stakes player "patpatman" has been running extremely good on PokerStars nosebleed tables lately. In total, he has won $350k in the past two weeks (about 11,300 hands) and is already up over $1,1 million this year.

So who is this tallented player?
There are many suggestions circulating on the web on who "patpatman" is. However, it seems like most people think that it is Tom "durrrr" Dwan because the account is registered in Macau, China, where Tom Dwan goes regularly and participates in huge cash games. Besides that, "patpatman" likes to play deep at the highest tables and seems to master both NLHE and PLO. Also, he has been making some comments in the chat about current games in Macau.

The movie that will start the poker boom in China

Posted on 14 August 2009 by "T".

The poker boom is still to occur in China. Many betting companies have tried to get into the Chinese gambling market, and also tried to get a poker boom going like it did in the rest of the world a few years ago. But so far not with such a great success. So what is preventing poker to grow in China? First off, China is not officially open to online poker sites, and the current laws are unclear as to the punishments or reprimand that face players and providers of online gaming. Another reason is the deposit options.

Many Chinese banks and credit card companies will not allow direct deposits to online gaming companies, and the ones that allow them to deposit usually charges big fees. To this date, Neteller, and other popular online payment services do not accept transfers from Chinese citizens. There you have the 2 of the main reasons why the poker boom in China still hasn't occured. So, what can start the poker boom in China when so many things are preventing people there from playing? A poker movie is maybe the answer?!
