Phil Galfond With Updates Around His Upcoming Poker Site

Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond released details around his upcoming poker site RunItOnce Poker On his website Runitonce.com, Phil Galfond published a lengthy blog two days ago. He begins with how he and his friend Dan started their training site and how it has growth under its 4-year life. However, in his post, he added some much-awaited news regarding his upcoming online poker site. According to Galfond, his team is working on the software development. This is one of the main reasons why his original target of Q1 launch date is likely out of reach. “I had hoped to be able to give you all a guaranteed launch date by now, but I can’t,” Galfond writes.

Phil Ivey Loses Borgata Case

Undoubtedly, it’s not Phil Ivey’s year Firstly, his appeal for the $12 million he won at the Crockfords was turned down by a London appellate court last month. And now he has lost his edge sorting case with Borgata and now he has to pay $10,1 million to the casino. Two months earlier, a court in New Jersey ruled that his session of baccarat at the Borgata Casino and Hotel was not illegal, but it was in violation of the casino rules. Since then the Borgata filed a claim for damages, wanting $15,5 million from Ivey. According to the casino, if Ivey and his friend Cheng Yin Sun were playing without using their edge sorting technic, the Borgata would have earned almost $6 million, given […]

Man Tattoos KidPoker’s Autograph on His Leg

A man did a tattoo with Daniel Negreanu’s signature on his leg Daniel Negreanu might have lost some fans after defending the rake increase made by PokerStars this year, but he still has a lot of fans who are crazy about him. A Norwegian poker fan, Tony Ostbye, is a big fan of Kid Poker. Recently he did a tattoo of Negreanu’s autograph on his leg. The poker pro must be pleased by this man’s decision, but for sure this is not the first time Negreanu sees something like this. In 2010, Daniel Negreanu gave an autograph on a woman’s lower back at the World Series of Poker. That same woman came back the next year to show Negreanu that his signature was permanently tattooed […]

Doug Polk’s $10K Challenge On the Rise

Doug “WCGRider” Polk’s $100-$10,000 bankroll challenge started back in August When Polk started his challenge, most of the people thought that it would take a few days or maximum a few weeks. Well, it’s been almost four months since he has started and it looks like he would need a few more. Now Polk is on the rise, after a month-long winning streak. His bankroll hit $632! To be fair, Polk has only played for 24 days, as he traveled to Canada in September to play in WCOOP and then took October off to travel. Now, he is also playing only on Mondays and Fridays. In the first few days of his challenge, Polk dropped below $50. However, on the 9th day, he was able […]

David Baazov Finds More Fund for Takeover

Initially, Baazov said that he had secured $3,65 billion from him. However, that news didn’t slow him down. Now Head and Shoulders Global Investment Fund and Goldenway Capital confirmed that would provide the needed money. These companies […]

Olivier “livb” Busquet needed more than 140 characters to express his feelings. However, James […]
