“Poker Night in America” Taping Two Television Events in August

Although it hasn’t been the groundbreaker that many thought it would be, the syndicated poker program Poker Night in America has continued to take its shots. In the month of August, the PNIA cameras will be traipsing the country in broadcasting four tournaments live while also taping cash game events and a “made for television” effort for future broadcast. The Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open in Hollywood, FL, kicks off in a couple of days with a unique series of tournaments. Called “The Big 4,” the schedule of the SHRPO features (naturally) four tournaments that will play out simultaneously. Beginning on August 9, a $ 1100 No Limit Hold’em (NLHE) with a $ 500,000 guarantee will kick off the festivities for “The Big 4.” Following that the $ 5250 SHRPO Main Event (with a single re-entry) and a $ 3 million guarantee will open play on August 11. As these

World Poker Tour Expanding Operations into India, South America With New Partnerships

The World Poker Tour has, at certain points in its history, stretched their moniker as far as “world.” For a few years, the organization barely left the States of America and, if it did, it was still on the North American continent. Of late, however, the WPT has been stretching out into the international market, as demonstrated by their latest endeavors on both sides of the globe. The WPT and India-based Adda52.com announced that they would be collaborating to expand poker in the billion-people strong country. This Asia-Pacific expansion between the two groups will be twofold, with a new tournament – the WPTDeepStacks India – as well as a brand-new honor for yearly performance in the WPT India Player of the Year award. Between both endeavors, the WPT and Adda52.com are looking to make poker even bigger in the country. “With a burgeoning poker community in a country with a

Bodog Announces Latin America Expansion

In an e-mail sent to its affiliate marketers this week, Bodog announced that it will be expanding into 15 Latin American countries next week. That concise e-mail is as follows: We are excited to announce that, as of February 15, our partnered brands Bovada and Bodog will be launching their product offerings in Latin America. Bovada Sports and Casino will be available in Mexico only while Bodog Poker, Casino, and Sports will launch in the following countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Columbia [sic], Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela. Those Central and South American countries are not ones that normally get all that much press when it comes to online poker; most of the attention goes to the United States and various European countries primarily because of their large player pools and online gambling legal wranglings. But this is interesting not only because

Producers of “Poker Night in America” Introduce New Poker Show – “The Final Table”

The creators of the popular syndicated poker show Poker Night in America, Rush Street Productions, have received kudos for the work they have done. In an era in which there has been little to no “new” television programming dedicated to poker, Rush Street Productions came out and provided that content for a rabid audience. Now they will take that premise one step further with the creation of their latest show for syndication, The Final Table. “We’re very excited to be bringing this new programming to national television,” said Executive Producer Dustin Iannotti during the announcement of the new show on Friday. “We plan to take some risks to try and appeal to a broader mainstream audience. The show will be unique and focus on entertainment, built around a poker game.  It will be unlike anything that’s ever been produced before in poker.” The president of Rush Street Productions, Todd Anderson, gave the nuts

I’m done waiting for America. I QUIT!

I’ve had enough of this crap. it’s been 4 years since online poker has died and I’m done with it. There is no hope at all for online poker coming back. I am sick and tired of scraping the bottom of the barrel risking my hard earned cash on fly by night pokersites only for the site to go down under and keep your money in the process. I don’t know how you people do it, but it’s not for me. I don’t need some old wrinkled up losers sitting behind desks who have never worked a real day of work in their entire lives telling me how I can spend my money. I thought america was the land of the free. Land of the free my big fat white ass. GO TO HELL OBAMA! Cardschat Poker Forums
