A poker tournament scheduled on Veterans Day in the United States (November 11, Sunday) in Gardena, California has been won by an unforeseen fellow. What’s intriguingly wonderful was that this fellow made an astonishing move – he donated all his wins to help support a noble cause.
Robert ‘Rob’ Reid is 52 years old and works as General Manager of two Gardena-based casinos called Hustler and Lucky Lady. Most of his time is spent behind the scenes of poker/casino tournaments than in front, but this time he figured he’d join in on the fun and entered the tournament. He never expected to win it in the end!

Jordan "Jymaster 11" Young has done it again. Last night, about 1 month after winning Full Tilt's 2 biggest Sunday tournaments, he took home the $200,000 Guarantee rebuy tournament at Full Tilt Poker for a first place prize of $79,784. What makes the win even more impressive is that he had to defeat 3 Red Pros (3rd - Damian Salas, 5th - Peter Feldman, 9th - Jono Karamalikis) on the final table.
Jordan Young is, at least if you ask me, one of the best online poker tournament players in the world at the moment. I mean, he has won 3 of Full Tilt's biggest Sunday tournaments in just a month's time - it can't just be luck! Or? Some people say that he has been extremely lucky and that's the reason behind his great success. Well, it takes much more than that to win big tournaments where lots of money is up for grabs. Also keep in mind that many of the players taking part in these tournaments are pros. It will be interesting to see if Full Tilt (or maybe even some other poker site) will offer him some kind of sponsorship contract soon. I'm sure it would be a great investment!
This tournament is only for existing Bwin players who signed up through BankrollMob - or players who does not yet have a Bwin account!

Rush Poker has been a huge success since it was introduced at Full Tilt Poker a couple of months ago. Now, Full Tilt Poker has taken Rush Poker a step further as it is now available in tournament mode as well. The Rush Poker tournaments can at the moment be played in the games Holdem and Omaha and up to 136 players can take part in single tournament. However, the buy-in is quite low for the tournaments that are available at the moment.
The Rush Poker tournaments are similar to a Rush Poker ring games. You can fold/quick fold and you will be moved to a new table in the blink of an eye. When less than 30 players are left in a Rush Poker tournament, the remaining tables will become short-handed. And when the tournament is down to the final table, it will be played like any other final table. In other words, more time to act and get to know your opponents.
When NAPT (North American Poker Tour) makes a stop at The Venetian, Las Vegas, PokerStars will try a new type of HighRoller Bounty shootout tournament. The buy-in for the new tournament will be $25,000 of which $5000 will go to the bounty prize pool. In other words, if you knockout a player - you will get $5000. Anyhow, one player from each table (10 players - sit & go tables) will make it to the next table and fight for a piece of the prize pool. PokerStars will give the one who takes home the most bounty's extra $100,000.
According to PokerStars, the pros they have been talking to so far are very positive to the new tournament. And who knows, maybe EPT and WPT will start arranging similar tournaments if the turnout is good at the Venetian?
It's once again time for another World Blogger Championship of Online Poker at the world's largest poker site, PokerStars. This time, the preliminary tournaments of WBCOOP will run between January 25 - 30, 2010. The most interesting event, A.K.A. the Main Event, will be played on January 31.
What is WBCOOP? World Blogger Championship of Online Poker (WBCOOP) started 5 years ago and it's a tournament where verified bloggers from all over the world can play against each other. It's totally free to take part in the preliminary tournaments for verified bloggers, and prizes such as tickets to Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP - $30,000,000 guaranteed by PokerStars) are up for grabs.
Not long ago, PokerStars announced that they will try to break the old record of the biggest online poker tournament. The old record was already held by themselves as they had 65,000 players in the same tournament last summer. Yesterday, it was time for a new world record attempt. To make sure that this tournament would be interesting to take part in, PokerStars guaranteed a prize pool of $300,000 where the top 30,000 players would get a piece of the cake.
So how did it go? Thanks to the low buy-in and the big guarantee this tournament offered not less than 149,196 players took part and a new world record was a fact as the old record had been beaten with almost 85,000 players. The winner of the tournament, Oskar69, received $50,000 in first place prize.
It will be interesting to see how long it takes before another world record attempt takes place and if Full Tilt or some other site will try to break PokerStars record.
