Stunning Late Season Move Puts Adrian Mateos Over Bryn Kenney in Player of the Year Races

In a stunning, late season move that is similar to what occurred last year, Spanish poker professional Adrian Mateos has used a surge of success at the tables to pass the man who has led virtually since the start of the year, Bryn Kenney, in the Player of the Year races in tournament poker. Mateos began the month of December in fourth place on the CardPlayer Magazine Player of the Year leaderboard behind Kenney and it seemed that he was going to have a tough time catching the leader. Not only did he have to climb over two people to even reach Kenney, Mateos had to make up roughly 2000 points to even have a chance at equaling Kenney. But that is exactly what Mateos has done, utilizing the final PokerStars Championship event to do it. After finishing off November by winning the $ 5000 Eight Handed No Limit Hold’em

2017 WSOP Europe Main Event Day 2 – Vishal Maini Puts Gap Between Himself and Field

With the two Day 1 starting flights wrapped up, Monday was the time for the survivors of each – plus anyone who wanted to fire one final bullet or register for the first time – to come together in a single, unified field for Day 2 at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Europe Main Event at the King’s Casino in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. Vishal Maini emerged from yesterday’s action as the overwhelming chip leader with 651,500 chips. After Maini, the next largest chip stack belongs to Milad Oghabian. His 463,500 is significant, but it is also nearly 200,000 fewer chips than the total belonging to Maini. After Oghabian, the top of the leader board is pretty packed, with the next five chip stacks ranging from 408,500 to 424,000 chips. Maini has just $ 73,532 in lifetime live tournament earnings (I would LOVE to have that success!), but he isn’t

Arkansas Puts Casino Gambling Measure on November Ballot

Arkansas poker and gaming lovers have made their voices heard, but now it is time to make their votes count. An amendment to the state constitution has been put on the November General Election ballot that would legalize most casino gambling and authorize the construction of up to three casinos in the state. The drive to get the measure, labeled as “Issue 5,” on the ballot was initiative of an advocacy group called Arkansas Wins in 2016. The organization penned the amendment and gathered over 100,000 signatures on a petition, easily more than the 84,859 required by the Secretary of State’s office. “We’re grateful to the 100,977 registered Arkansas voters that joined with our campaign to get this pro-growth, pro-jobs issue on the ballot this November,” said Arkansas Wins in 2016 and Arkansas Winning Initiative Inc. spokesperson Robert Coon in a press release. “This amendment will create thousands of good

EPT Prague Main Event Day 1B: Massive Player Turnout for Day 1B Puts Samuel Chartier Into Overall Lead

While they were able to pull in 254 players for the action of Day 1A, the “powers that be” for the European Poker Tour had to be a bit concerned about the player numbers for their stop at the Hilton Prague Hotel in the Czech Republic. As it turned out, there wasn’t any reason for the “suits” to be worried as a massive player turnout for Day 1B brought reminiscences of last year’s massive gathering. From the start of the day, it was obvious that Friday’s numbers were going to be big. When the cards first went into the air, there were 430 players on the tables and that number would quickly rocket past the 500 mark. Surprisingly, every table had a notable name on it, with such players as Dylan Linde, Dermot Blain, Luca Pagano, Mickey Petersen, Jude Ainsworth, Martins Adeniya, 2014 World Series of Poker Player of the
