Phil Galfond With Updates Around His Upcoming Poker Site

Phil “MrSweets28” Galfond released details around his upcoming poker site RunItOnce Poker On his website, Phil Galfond published a lengthy blog post. He begins with how he and his friend Dan started their training site and how it has grown in its 4-year life. However, in his post, he added some much-awaited news regarding his upcoming online poker site. According to Galfond, right now 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 Against Borgata

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 he has to pay $10,1 million to the casino.

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.

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 […]
