The long wait for the Pokerfest is soon over. On Sunday, 25th October the first events of the 80-event tournament series will be played on partypoker! Pokerfest has $2.5 million in guaranteed prize pools and events to suit everyone's wallet, including a $5 re-buy event with a $10,000 guaranteed prize pool!
PartyPoker announced on October 1st that it was going to make several changes in the poker software over the coming weeks to create a playing environment that is fun and exciting for all players regardless of their bankroll or their level of experience.
Pokerfest, a tournament series with 80 events and a $2.5 million guaranteed prize pool, was supposed to start yesterday, but at the end of last week Partypoker announced that they had decided to postpone Pokerfest one month (Sunday, 25th October 2015) due to some performance issues following an update of the poker software. Partypoker will add a $50,000 freeroll to the Pokerfest schedule (date and time to be announced later on) as compensation for the inconvenience caused.
"I apologise to our loyal players for having to delay this highly anticipated event. With a total prize pool of $2,500,000 up for grabs, we are not willing to take even the slightest risk with our players' experience during the 80 events that make up Pokerfest. To make-up for the inconvenience, we have added a $50,000 freeroll to the updated schedule in appreciation of our customers' loyalty."
80 Pokerfest events with $2.5 million in guaranteed prize pools will be played on partypoker from 27th September through 11th October. The tournament series offers everything from a $5 re-buy event with a $10,000 guarantee to a $2,100 Super High roller event with a $150,000 guarantee.
party poker will be hosting an exclusive freeroll this evening at 19:00 BST (20:00 CET) for all its players located in the United Kingdom. It's FREE to enter the tournament and you can win a Pokerfest Live Main Event ticket worth $530! In total, 100 players (100 x $530 = approx. £34k) will be awarded a ticket in tonight's freeroll!

The Pokerfest Live Main Event (£620,000 guaranteed - multiple starting days) will be played at UK's largest poker room, Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham. Aside from the freeroll, one can qualify for the Main Event from just 10 cents on party poker!

Popular poker player and TV-reporter Kara Scott and PartyPoker are about to split up after 5 years together. Scott commented on the "break up" in her latest blog, "PartyPoker has gone through many changes and unfortunately as their focus shifted, there were fewer and fewer TV projects. As those shows disappeared, so did one of my favourite parts of the job and now my association with Party is ending."
For UK members ONLY: Get £10 Free from Party Poker - No Deposit Required! This offer will expire on 9th of November 2014 so if you don't have an account at Party Poker yet, this would be the best time to sign up!

Together with our sponsors, we are happy to announce that we will be running a World Cup betting competition during the 20th FIFA World Cup. The betting competition consists of five leaderboards; four weekly and one overall leaderboard.
From the Mob Games section in your Mob account, you will be able to place your bets for free on the outcome of each game but also on the correct score. Each bet has a stake of “100 points”. So if the odds of your bet is 2.75 you will win 275 points if your prediction turns out to be successful. These are the points that will count towards the leaderboards.
Each of the four weekly leaderboards pays the top 15 finishers. The overall leaderboard will pay the top 30! The prizes are a combination of Mob-prizes such as Mob-points, MobDraw tickets, MobSafe bonus shots and gifts from our sponsors. Please note that due to country restrictions, you may not be able to claim the sponsored prize.
Please find the sponsors listed below and make sure that you sign-up an account and claim our offers so you can claim the sponsored prizes! After each weekly leaderboard has finished, we will send a Mob Mail to the winners with information on how to claim.

The televised final table at the World Poker Tour Montreal Main Event concluded yesterday with Derrick Rosenbarger as the champion! Rosenbarger, from Clovis, New Mexico, began the final table in 5th place and was well behind chip leader Sylvain Siebert (8.4m), Serge Cantin (6.9m) and Mukul Pahuja (5.9m).
The Main Event's player field was narrowed down from 59 to the final 18 in just six hours in Day 3, and the survivors will return to the poker tables in a few hours to battle it out for the 6 spots at the televised final table - where the winner will take home half a million dollars!
The current chip leader is Sylvain Sibert who eliminated several players in Day 3 to accumulate the top stack of 2.9 million. Other players that will bring +2 million stacks to Day 4 include Derrick Rosenbarger (2,875,000), Alexandre Lavigne (2,197,000), Antoine Berube (2,156,000), Marco Cannizzaro (2,156,000) and Mukul Pahuja (2,003,000)

On Monday, Tony G blogged about an insane cash game at Kings Club in Prague, Czech Republic. According to himself, he lost about €500,000 in a €2k/€4k cash game the first day. The same day as that cash game took place he also played a €10,000 High Roller (rebuy) event, but he decided to skip Day 2 and let his average stack get blinded off.
In case you missed it: Party Poker completed the software merge with bwin in the end of 2012. As a part of the merge, Parter Poker has added $5 million to its monthly tournament guarantees ($15,000,000 in total), with a new tournament starting ever 15 minutes - 365 days a year! Besides that, Party Poker is giving away $10,000 in daily freerolls during January and not to forget our $200 freerolls every Sunday!
After a short break in 2013, we can now announce that the weekly $200 freeroll at Party Poker has been secured for (rest of) January, February and March.
Will it be extended beyond March? It depends on you guys! If you're active and playing as many of our weekly $200 Party Poker freerolls as possible, then there are very good chances we can keep it going.
In order to play in them, your Party Poker account must be tracked to BankrollMob (created through a link from our site), and you must have earned 50 PartyPoints in the specified time frame (check the description on each freeroll) - this is to ensure the freerolls are for active players.
In case you missed it: Party Poker had lots of good news to its customers last week. Not only did the site release an Android App (still only available in beta mode) available in many languages, but also it completed the poker software merge with bwin to overtake the second place from Full Tilt Poker in online traffic.
As a part of the merge, Party Poker added an increadible $5 million ($15 million in total) to its monthly tournament guarantees, and now a new tournament starts every 15 minutes, 365 days a year!
Yesterday the first starting day of World Poker Tour Prague (re-entry event - 3 starting days) kicked off and saw a field of 115 players. 54 of them made it through the day, and Pasi Jaakko Heinanen (picture) from Finland had the largest pile of chips (193,800) when the tournament director called it a day. Today it's time for Day 1B and famous players such as Liv Boeree and Kevin MacPhee will make sure that it will be a thrilling day of poker.
Tony G recently provided poker lessons to six players of the Manchester United soccer team (Refael da Silva, Phil Jonas, Tom Cleverley, Darren Fletcher, Jonny Evans and Danny Welbeck) for a charity tournament arranged by the club and filmed for MUTV. Tony G didn't take part in the tournament but he provided commentary for the broadcast. Evans, who plays as defender for his club, eventually took down the title after defeating Fletcher heads-up to retain the title he won last year.
Yesterday Tony G updated his blog with a video to show all "non-believers" that Tony Resort is a real place. According to Tony G, his own little paradise is guarded by his German Shepherd Nordas, and Ralph Perry (Russian poker pro) is not welcome.
On November 4th the long-awaited Autumn $1 Million ($1,000,000 guaranteed) will be played on Party Poker. The tournament kicks off at 13:30 ET and the buy-in will be $600 + $40. If you don't have that kind of cash to spend on a single tournament, then there are several cheaper ways to qualify for the tournament. Satellites for the Autumn $1 Million are already running around the clock, with the cheapest ones only costing $1 to enter.
According to the latest report by an online poker tracking site, the poker traffic has dropped by 0.6 percent in the past 7 days. PokerStars dropped 13 percent in the past week after climbing 17 percent the week before. The main reason for this big change is that PokerStars' 85 Billionth Hand promotion started and came to an end during this period. However, PokerStars is by far the biggest and strongest online poker room with about 22,000 real-money players over the past 7 days.
Here are the top 10 online poker rooms as of Thursday:
World Poker Tour's host Mike Sexton is disgusted with the lack of professionalism by some poker pros. In fact, he's so angry and annoyed that he wrote a blog on the matter yesterday - "Poker Pros - Wake Up and Smell the Coffee". Mike Sexton writes that he thinks poker should have a dress code just like in any sport.
Also, he thinks that poker players should be more responsible and on time for interviews and tournaments, full fill all media requests, sign autographs and take pictures with fans when asked etc. Sexton thinks that all these things are extremely important for the future of poker.
We're happy to announce another batch of weekly $200 Party Poker freerolls. For now they have been scheduled for every Sunday until and including September 25th. There's currently no freeroll for this next Sunday (August 7th) but if Party Poker manages to get it set up in time, then we will announce it in the poker freerolls section - so keep an eye on it.
As usuall, you will need a Party Poker account created through BankrollMob in order to qualify, as well as having earned 50 PartyPoints prior to the freeroll. So, if the freeroll is Sunday September 25th, you'll need to earn 50 PartyPoints between August 1st and Wednesday September 21st (Party Poker needs a few days to upload the list of eligible players, which is why the cut-off day is the Wednesday before each freeroll).
A couple of weeks have now passed since FBI and the U.S. Department of Justice closed down 3 of the world's largest poker sites in the U.S. and charged 11 persons with running illegal online gambling operations. Black Friday happened over a night and turned the poker world upside down to say the least. Ever since Black Friday lots of rumors regarding what will happen with U.S. players outstanding funds have circulated on the web.
Party Poker's Bad Beat Jackpot is now over $810,000 and still increasing. Normally, the Bad Beat Jackpot seldom gets over $400,000 before some "lucky" unlucky player claims it.
In order to qualify for party Poker's Bad Beat Jackpot, you will have to be seated around a Bad Beat Cash Tables and be so unlucky that you actually lose a hand holding at least four of a kind in 8's. The jackpot amount that is paid out will be split; 50% to the "loser", 25% to the winner of the hand and 25% to the other players who were involved in the hand.
Party Poker collects $0.5 from the pot of every raked hand that is played on their Bad Beat Jackpot tables. This adds approximately $1,000 to the jackpot every hour.

Recently PartyPoker introduced anonymous heads-up tables in the poker client. The new tables will, for example, give beginners a much better chance against the more experienced players as different tracking programs won't do no good. However, it might also help the more experienced players/pros get more action. This is what 2 Team PartyPoker pros had to say about the new tables.
Bodo Sbrzesny: Often in online poker you see heads-up tables with only one player on it because everybody has too much respect to play against the player. With the hidden names there should be more action!
Tyron Krost: For beginners or new online players it makes it much harder for the sharks to find them and also stops them from being targeted by those players that use the online database sites.
The PartyPoker poker software is definitely one of the best and most advanced on the market today and it has all the functions one can ask for as a poker player. So what's missing? Well, some of PartyPoker's software developers thought that something could be done with the poker table background and the alert sounds as they created a Tony G theme. You can choose from 3 different themes (black Tony G, Flag Tony G and Modern Tony G) and also use Tony G's personal alert sounds.
The two starting days of WPT Amneville have already been played and soon it's time for Day 2 to start. 242 players of 541 have survived so far. 54 of these players will return home with at least €7,200, which is approximately double the buy-in - but probably nothing any of the players are aiming for as the winner of the tournament gets €433,000 (+ entry to WPT Championship at Bellagio, the runner-up will get €229,000 (+ entry to WPT Championship at Bellagio) and the one ends up in third place will walk away with €161,000.
PartyPoker has 60 players at the event including Team PartyPoker pros Dragan Galic and Bodo Sbrzesny. If one of the 10 internet qualifiers wins the tournament, he/she will get another $1 million from PartyPoker. Would be pretty amazing if that happened!
Party Poker has eight brand new iPhone 4s to give away – and they could all be yours!
If you sign up with Party Poker before November 30th and make a deposit (our no deposit bonus also applies), you'll be entered into one of the eight iPhone 4 freerolls. The sooner you sign up, the more freerolls you can register for.
It ended up being 19-year-old Marek Sosnowski from Poland who took home Party Poker's Drive the Dream tournament this weekend. For the win he got an 2010 Aston Martin DBD9 Coupe, a very luxurious car worth around $150,000. However, there's a small problem - the winner doesn't have a drivers license! Well, he could always sell the car and get a nice bankroll for his poker career. What makes this win even more fantastic is that Sosnowski qualified for the final table through a freeroll at Party Poker!

As promised, a $1000 BankrollMob freeroll would appear on Party Poker. It's scheduled for June 27th at 19:00 GMT (21:00 CET) and is a "replacement freeroll" for the failed weekly $200 freerolls we experienced in May.
The requirements are the same though, you'll only have to earn 50 Party Points between May 1st and Wednesday June 23rd, so there's still time to qualify for this $1000 freeroll. Needless to say, your Party Poker account must be created through BankrollMob links.
The BankrollMob & Party Poker WSOP promotion has ended. Around 1500 players managed to "scratch their way" via our daily WSOP scratch game, into one of the daily qualifiers. From the daily qualifiers, 162 players qualified to our "Main WSOP Tournament" which was played yesterday, June 6th.
In case you've been living under a rock for the past month, or if you're new here, it's about final call if you want to participate in our WSOP promotion where you can scratch your way to a free WSOP ticket and other great prizes.
Lots of information is available at our WSOP promotion page, but basically you get a free shot every day in our scratch game. If you find 3 jokers, you will have won entry to one of the daily WSOP freerolls. Top 3 finishers from each daily WSOP freeroll will be entered to our WSOP Final tournament on June 6th, with the following prizes:Read more » Last Chance: Scratch a free WSOP ticket
Due to a human error at Party Poker, our WSOP freeroll for May 10th didn't go as planned. Unfortunately, mistakes sometimes happen, so there's nothing else to do than to reschedule and give it another go.
We intend to reschedule the May 10th freeroll for Thursday May 13th instead. It's possible that the tournament will start 5-15 minutes later than usual, since we will be having two WSOP freerolls on Thursday (the normal one, and the one from May 10th).
As usual, all Mob members who will be playing any given night, will receive an e-mail reminder from us a few hours before.
If for some reason you are not able to make it for Thursday, and you were supposed to play May 10th, then all you have to do, is not show up. Instead, send an e-mail to wsop (at) bankrollmob.com and we will find another date for you. Of course we cannot offer you a second chance if you happen to actually play in the tournament on Thursday and not qualify, so only send us an e-mail and ask for a new date, in case you cannot play on Thursday.
