Peter Eastgate has since he won the WSOP Main Event 3 years ago already stopped playing poker once, then returned to the poker scene again and sold his WSOP bracelet on Ebay. There has been a lot of things going on in Eastgate's life since the big win in 2008, and it doesn't seem like he has any problem to spend the money he won.
This is just a quick shout-out to all of you who participated in our free Mob Betting World Cup game - thank you! We hope you liked it.
Also a big congratulations to all the winners. As you know, we had four weekly leaderboards with 15 winners each and an overall leaderboard also with 15 winners, so up to 75 winners (some might have won more than once, of course) shared the $1765 prize pool in Mob Points, Mob Draw tickets and Mob Safe bonus shots.
We haven't yet decided what to do with the Mob Betting game now that the World Cup is over. Maybe we'll open it up for other events such as EPT/WPT/WSOP tournaments or sporting events, maybe include a running leaderboard, a monthly leaderboard etc. We'll let you know what we decide on but if you have any ideas or comments, you know where to put them (in the comment field, just below...)
Again, thank you all for participating and also a congratulation to Spain for winning the World Cup 2010.
Congratulations to top 15 finishers in the weekly leaderboard #3, you have just been paid the prizes you won!
Today we are entering week #4, the final week of World Cup betting. Only four matches left, so now is the time to start betting (it's free) if you want a chance to either finish top 15 on the Overall Leaderboard or get a top 15 place on this weekly leaderboard, where everybody is back to 0 points to begin with.
The two semifinals are Uruguay vs Netherlands tomorrow evening and Germany vs Spain on Wednesday evening. On Saturday the two semifinal-losers will play for 3rd place, maybe it will be a match between Uruguay and Spain, which means we will see Netherlands vs Germany in the World Cup final on Sunday.
Go to your Mob Account now and find the "Mob Betting" section at the bottom - place your free bets on the two semifinals matches and be sure to come back on Thursday to bet on the final two matches of the World Cup.
On August 28 the 2010 FIBA World Championship in Turkey kicks off. The world championship in basketball, like football, is one of the biggest happenings in the sport and usually millions of people around the globe are following the tournament. Maybe the worlds biggest poker site can take the world cup to a new level?
Yes, you heard right! Pokestars has just announced that they will sponsor the Spanish basketball association during 2010 FIBA World Championship. The sponsorship is not only good news for the Spanish poker association but also for PokerStars members.
Week #1 Leaderboard has now ended and top 15 players have been paid their prizes. Today a new week starts so it will be exciting to see if the same players can keep it going and also finish in the top on Sunday.
Remember that the Overall leaderboard covers the entire tournament, so there's no need to feel upset if you scored big yesterday but still didn't finish top 15 on the weekly leaderboard, since your points will also apply to the Overall leaderboard.
We have just added odds to a few more matches so you can now bet on the next few days as well. At this stage of the tournament, expect to come back every other day to place bets on new matches since we update on a regular basis.
If you're new to this Mob Betting promotion, don't worry, it's not too late to join. A new weekly leaderboard has just started and everybody has zero points, so it's equal for all. The later you wait to join, the harder it will be to gain a good position on the Overall leaderboard, though. But the weekly leaderboards reset every Sunday and week 2, 3 and 4 are still to be played.

We just added more odds to our Mob Game World Cup betting game. Now all matches up until (and including) Friday June 18th will have odds so you can bet on them - it's of course still free to bet, as it will be during the entire World Cup 2010.
As for the leaderboards, Week #1 Leaderboard is still going on, and the Overall leaderboard too. Week #1 leaderboard will end on Sunday so it's not too late to get in the game now. The two top players so far are smygarn and poisson19, who managed to hit Germany's 4-0 victory over Australia, giving them odds 21. Since we consider all bets to be "100 points", odds 21 would mean each of them got 2100 points for the leaderboard, bringing them up to a total of 4435 points. As you can see, it doesn't take that many correct bets to rocket yourself to the top of the leaderboards, so better go make your bets now!
We continue to add odds a few times a week so be sure to come back every now and then to make new bets.
As a member of BankrollMob, you can now participate in a new Mob Game which we call "Mob Betting". It's currently focused on the World Cup 2010 but we might use it for future events as well.
For the World Cup 2010 we made Mob Betting completely free for our members to use - but still with real prizes based on leaderboards. There are a total of five leaderboards: One overall leaderboard that covers the entire World Cup tournament and four weekly leaderboards, the first weekly does have a few matches from this week though.
Each leaderboard will have prizes, with the overall leaderboard having the biggest prizes. The total prize pool is worth $1765 and consists of money prizes (as Mob Points), tickets to our weekly Mob Draw (with several $50 prizes) and bonus shots to crack the Mob Safe and win the content (usually at least $20).Read more » NEW: Mob Betting - Bet on World Cup 2010 For Free & Win Prizes
