Poker pro and loudmouth Antanas Guoga, better known as Tony G, won't be taking part in Big One for One Drop at the 2012 World Series of Poker - even though he was one of the 42 pre-registered players for the tournament. The reason seems to be that he will travel around with Lithuania's basketball team, together with other big sponsors of the team, at the same time as the tournament is played in Las Vegas.

This means that 41 players will take part in Big One for One Drop. The tournament kicks off in a week and still there are 7 seats (48 player cap) available to anyone who has the money and the guts to use $1,000,000 for a single poker tournament!

James Dempsey, 27, has won over $1 million dollars online and has also been very successful live. At the 2010 WSOP he won a $1,5k PLO event and ended up in second place in the $10k Omaha Hi/Lo event. In total he cashed in 4 events at the 2010 WSOP. Quite impressing if you ask me! It's clear that players like James Dempsey do not grow on trees, and Full Tilt probably realized the same thing when they signed him a few days ago.

James Dempsey played his first tournament as Red Pro in last Sunday's Poker Million at Full Tilt. However, he didn't do all that well this time, but he still has plenty of time to show the owners of Full Tilt that he deserves to be a Red Pro.

It is now official that Full Tilt Poker will continue to sponsor the Million Dollar Cash Game as they have renewed the contract for another 3 years. This year's Million Dollar Cash Game will be filmed in HD and will take place at an exclusive venue in London between 8th and 9th September. However, we will have to wait until January 2011 before it's broadcasted on Sky Sports.

According to the tournament director James Hopkins, we can expect to the see the strongest field ever in this year's Million Dollar Cash Game. Phil Ivey, Tom Dwan and Phil Hellmuth are just 3 of the huge names that will take part and make sure that we get to see poker at its best. And Who knows? Maybe we will get to see an even bigger pot than the $1.1 dollar pot between Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey in season 4. In fact that pot is the largest ever televised cash game pot. 



He won 3 bracelets in this year's WSOP - Is still without a sponsor

Jeffrey Lisandro became the first person to win a World Series title in all three seven-card stud disciplines at the same Series when he won the Stud High, Stud High-Low, and Razz in 2009 World Series of Poker. Of course he has achieved so much more than this in his long poker career. However, after his great 2009 WSOP he started getting lots and lots of attention from media all over the world. But even though he has gotten all this attention, not a single poker site has showed interested in sponsoring him. How is this possible many people probably would ask themselves? Well, even Lisandro hasn't got a clue why his still without a sponsor.

-"There has been a lot of good things written about me in different poker magazines, and I have done a lot of interviews on internet. Still no one has ever offered me a deal. I must be a very valuable player for a lot of poker sites as I get a lot of attention in media? If I don't find a sponsor soon I probably start my own poker site and sponsor myself until someone wants to sponsor me"; Jeffrey Lisandro says.
