2018 EPT Sochi Day 2: Sergey Pichugin Holds…

admin | March 26, 2018 | 0

After a first of its type Day 1B and 1C on the same day (more on this in a bit), Day 2 has completed action at the 2018 European Poker Tour Sochi Main Event. After a massive 861 entries were received, only 136 players remain – nine short of the money bubble – with Sergey Pichugin holding down the lead.

Saturday featured action that was unique for any poker tournament. While Day 1B began on Saturday like a normal tournament (with one rebuy for entrants), it was what happened later in the night that was intriguing for players. Technically a Day 1C, a “turbo” day was played with ten, 30-minute levels to make sure the players were playing to the same level as the previous tournament days. After those three-Day Ones were complete, late registration finished off with the start of Day 2 on Sunday in the Casino Sochi. read more

European Poker Tour Returns in Sochi, Day 1A…

admin | March 26, 2018 | 0

After a year of wandering in the wilderness branded as another tournament circuit, the European Poker Tour officially made its comeback on Friday in Sochi, Russia. The first day of the European Poker Tour Sochi Main Event is in the books with a contingent of (naturally) Russian players dominating the leaderboard.

For the official history books, this was the first time that the EPT had ever set foot in Russia, although technically the circuit came to the Casino Sochi last year when it was under the “other name that will not be uttered.” And, for one of the few times ever seen on the EPT, there was a multiple Day One format, with an odd twist. After Day 1A on Friday was complete, Saturday would see a Day 1B play out. If that wasn’t enough for the players, a “Day 1C” under a turbo format will be started at 8PM on Saturday night (the event also offers players a single rebuy during their start day). From those three days, the Day 2 field will come together on Sunday. read more

admin | March 26, 2018 | 0

We’re a couple of months away from the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl and, just like previous years, the number of players wanting to take part is more than what will get in. Last night, former SHRB champions Christoph Vogelsang (the defending champion) and Brian Rast were selected to participate, but High Roller regulars Fedor Holz and Bryn Kenney so far are left out.

The 2018 SHRB will begin on May 27, but there are only 48 players being allowed into the tournament. Thus, officials associated with the tournament (the tournament is the creation of and sponsored by Poker Central) and ARIA, the host casino for the tournament, had to make the tough decision on who would get to participate. Just like last year, the decision was made to have a blind draw for 30 of the seats that were available. And, just like last year, there was a bit of hubbub over who made it in and who was excluded. read more

PTP, GameIntel Report: CoinPoker Player Traffic is a…

admin | March 26, 2018 | 0

A few weeks ago, one of the latest cryptocurrency-based online poker sites, CoinPoker, had its real money tables go live and to celebrate, the site is running a couple of generous promotions. Unfortunately, according to GameIntel Managing Editor and PartTimePoker.com writer Alex Weldon, it appears that those promos are contributing to artificially-inflated player traffic at the site.

At most online poker rooms, a great promotion usually leads to boosted player traffic, so on the surface, the situation at CoinPoker might look normal. But when Weldon checked out the CoinPoker tables for an article topic for GameIntel, he thought the place looked even busier than expected. He ran it by the Gameintel’s owner, Dan Stewart, who agreed something was amiss. read more
