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.

2018 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown Day 1B: Uri Kadosh Maintains Overall Lead, Record Field for Event

The opening salvos have been fired in the 2018 World Poker Tour Seminole Hard Rock Poker Showdown and the shots have been spectacular. The numbers for the two-Day Ones have set a record for the tournament and, while former WPT champion Eric Afriat took the Day 1B chip lead honors, it is Day 1A leader Udi Kadosh who will have the overall lead heading to Sunday’s Day 2 action. After 646 entries were received for Day 1A, the masses gathered for Day 1B were ready to smash that figure. Coming out of the gate it was a bit slow as only 169 players were in their chairs when the cards hit the air, but there was quality to the early risers (the tournament started at 11AM). Former WPT champions Darren Elias, Brian Altman, Andy Frankenberger, Jonathan Little (also in on Day 1A) and Afriat were the brightest stars in the

2017 WPT Fallsview Poker Classic: Ben Wilinofsky Leads Record Field After Day One

After a record field for the event flooded into the casino, “semi-retired” poker professional Ben Wilinofsky emerged as the chip leader following Day One of the World Poker Tour’s Fallsview Poker Classic in Canada last night. Long a popular stop for poker players due to its proximity to the U. S./Canadian border and its beautiful surroundings, the Fallsview Casino was ready for a rush of players for this tournament, a $ 5000 buy in event with one rebuy should a player bust out of the event. Several top players were in attendance for the earlier events on the calendar, with Canadians Xuan Liu and Mike Leah taking down two of those preliminary engagements. This was the one the players were waiting for and, once the call to arms was made with the “shuffle up and deal,” the players immediately responded. As soon as the bell sounded, roughly 350 players were

Maurice Hawkins Ties Record, Wins Ninth WSOP Circuit Ring

I have a great life, no doubt about it, but damn if I’m not looking at Maurice Hawkins right now and feeling a bit envious. Hawkins may not be a household name in the poker world, but few players can match what he has been doing over the last few years. On Monday, Hawkins tied the all-time record by winning his ninth World Series of Poker Circuit ring, taking the title in a $ 365 buy-in event at the Palm Beach Kennel Club. Hawkins is now tied with Alexandru Masek for the all-time WSOP Circuit ring lead, but Hawkins dominates in prize money, $ 1,366,228 to $ 711,761. Hawkins is also the kind of poker player that people either love or hate. He is a talker at the tables, to put it lightly. He’s the kind of guy that would be perfectly cast as a character in a poker movie.

2017 WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open Day 2: Tournament Field Sets Record

The 2017 World Poker Tour Borgata Winter Poker Open has achieved the largest field in its history as 192 additional entries were made on Day 2 to bring the total to 1,312. That number makes this tournament the fourth-largest in World Poker Tour history, as well. There are now just 168 players remaining heading into Wednesday’s Day 3 with Jack Duong leading the charge holding 727,500 chips. The total prize pool for the Main Event is $ 4,199,712, eclipsing the guarantee by over a million bucks. 130 players will be paid – so the money bubble should burst today – with the winner receiving $ 892,433. The chip leader, Jack Duong, has an interesting live tournament resume. He has a ton of cashes dating back five years, but most are small, only in the four-figure range (what I wouldn’t give to win over a thousand dollars in a poker tournament).
