WSOP.com Opens Account Pre-Registration for Upcoming Interstate Network

WSOP.com and 888 Poker are quite confident that the approval process for their new software will go off without a hitch and as such, WSOP.com has sent out e-mails to players and published a press release announcing the opening of registration for new accounts. The WSOP.com software is being reviewed by the regulatory bodies of Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey and if approved, New Jersey will finally share poker player liquidity with the other two states on the WSOP/888 network. The target date for the new interstate network to go live is May 1st. Last week, WSOP.com and 888 Poker announced that they submitted a new version of their software to regulators in the three states; the end result of the approval would be that the three states would be together on an interstate network. Delaware and Nevada joined forces in 2015, but New Jersey has been the holdout. And

Rens Feenstra Wins WPT Amsterdam Main Event

With the World Poker Tour (WPT) Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown taking place last week and drawing one of the biggest crowds in Tour history, it was easy to forget that there was another WPT event going on across the pond: WPT Amsterdam. The €3,000 + €300 Main Event drew 207 entrants, generating a prize pool of nearly €600,000. Home town hero (well, home country hero) Rens Feenstra won WPT Amsterdam, cashing for $ 192,335 (converted from Euros). The win put Feenstra over the $ 1 million mark for lifetime live tournament earnings. This was his first World Poker Tour title, but he was quite familiar with tournament end-game situations, as he has a number of tournament wins, including two others in the six-figure range. Feenstra was the overwhelming chip leader going into the six-handed final table, so it certainly appeared that he was destined for at least the top

Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier Signs Deal with partypoker

Only a couple of months after announcing his much-ballyhooed departure from PokerStars, French poker professional Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier has revealed his new online home. Beginning immediately, Grospellier will now don the patch of partypoker, the main rival of his old online home. “It is with great honor and pleasure that I can announce I’m joining Team partypoker,” Grospellier happily declared in the announcement of the partnership. “It is very refreshing to be in touch with a company which prioritizes the well-being of the game and its community.” “I am very excited about being able to be closely and actively involved in the renewal partypoker is bringing to the poker, LIVE and online,” Grospellier continued. “Our aim is to become the reference in both and I am confident that with partypoker expertise and ambition, it is an achievable goal in the foreseeable future.” He concluded the announcement by encouraging the poker

Kenney, Holz Join Former Champion Kempe in Being Chosen for 2018 Super High Roller Bowl

After missing out on being selected in the “blind draw” for the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl, former champion Rainer Kempe and high roller stalwarts Bryn Kenney and Fedor Holz have been selected to play in this year’s event. The “second round” selections by the host casino, ARIA Resort & Casino, and the broadcaster of the tournament, Poker Central (through its PokerGO streaming outlet), were announced on Thursday. Although it lacked the fanfare that came with the lottery draw of the “first 30,” it is arguable that these 15 players chosen are players that deserve to be in the field. The 15 players who have been added to the capped 48-player are (and in alphabetical order): Brandon Adams Dennis Blieden Antonio Esfandiari Seth Davies Antanas ‘Tony G’ Guoga Fedor Holz Matt Hyman Rainer Kempe Bryn Kenney Jason Koon Tom Marchese Bill Perkins Doug Polk Jake Schindler Dan Smith Perhaps because

New Jersey Online Gaming Industry Breaks Record with Biggest Month in History

Signaling the vibrancy of its online gaming industry, New Jersey was able to bank its biggest online “win” rate in its history in the month of March 2018. Over the 31 days of March, New Jersey’s citizens seemed to flock to the offerings from the casino operations in the state. For the month, the five online operations in the state – the Borgata’s poker and casino sites, Caesars’ poker and casino sites, Resorts’ poker and casino sites and the individual casino operations of the Golden Nugget and the Tropicana – pulled in a record $ 25.6 million. That was by far the biggest month in the history of the Garden State’s online gaming industry, beating its previous best by almost $ 4 million (the previous record was $ 21.7 million in March 2017). Breaking down the numbers from March, it was casino gaming that once again carried the online industry.
