PokerStars Returns to its Roots; 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Schedule Set

Perhaps recognizing the error in their previous actions, The Stars Group has announced that their January tournament in the Bahamas will be returning in 2018, including a return to the name it was previously known as. The 2018 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure will return to action at its traditional home at Atlantis Resort in Paradise Island, the Bahamas, from January 6-14. Along with returning the original name of the event, PokerStars is also stepping out on a limb a bit in returning the buy in to its original amount. After spending several years as a $ 5000 buy in event, the 2018 PCA Main Event will be a $ 10,000 tournament, ensuring the tournament’s place in the pantheon of “must play” international poker tournaments. The return to the PCA moniker was obviously on the minds of Stars Group officials. “We’re reviewing our live events and incorporating player feedback to ensure we’re

WSOP November Nine is No More, Final Table Returns to Summer

When it was announced a decade ago that the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event final table would be moved to November, rather than directly following the preceding days of the tournament, many jaws in the poker community dropped. To many, it was an intriguing idea, meant to allow ESPN to build up the excitement leading up to the final table, but to others, it was sacrilege. We have grown accustomed to the November Nine, though, which is why it may come as a shock to hear that it is no more. Starting this year, the Main Event final table will be contested in July following a two day break once the composition of the final table is determined. This sudden change is the result of a deal between ESPN and Poker Central which sees Poker Central acquiring both the television broadcast and digital media rights to the World

And The Other Shoe Drops: Howard Lederer Returns to the WSOP

A little more than a week after alleged co-conspirator Chris Ferguson returned for the first time in six years to the 2016 World Series of Poker, former Full Tilt Poker front man Howard Lederer stepped up to the felt in the Rio in Las Vegas on Saturday. Lederer put down his ducats to enter Event #16, the $ 10,000 Deuce to Seven Draw Lowball World Championship, on Satruday afternoon with other deep-pocketed pros (there were 100 entries in the re-entry tournament), the first appearance he has made at a WSOP table since 2010. It didn’t go so well in the beginning for the disgraced pro, who was initially eliminated by Benny Glazer. Lederer just happened to have had another bullet in his pocket, however (rebuys were available until the end of late registration), and that one was able to get him through the evening. Lederer chose to pick on Stuart

Chris Ferguson Returns to Play at 2016 WSOP

After more than five years out of the tournament poker spotlight, one of the men involved in the demise of Full Tilt Poker and the “Black Friday” scandal returned to the World Series of Poker stage on Saturday. Former World Champion Chris Ferguson, the man formerly known as ‘Jesus,’ entered the $ 10,000 Seven Card Stud World Championship on Saturday afternoon, marking the first time that either he or one of his alleged cohorts, Howard Lederer or Ray Bitar, have set foot in the Rio since “Black Friday” for the WSOP (meaning Ferguson hasn’t been at the event since 2010). The tournament was a natural for Ferguson to make his return at, with his first WSOP bracelet being won in 2000 in a Seven Card Stud event, but there were still titters as the lanky frame of the former World Champion ambled through the Rio’s tournament rooms. About as quietly

EPT Returns to Dublin for First Time Since 2007

The second European Poker Tour Main Event of the year got going Sunday, as Day 1A of the EPT Dublin Main Event kicked off with 147 poker players spending their Valentine’s Day hoping to end up flush with hearts (Do you see what I did there? Valentine’s Day? Hearts? Flush? That’s why they pay me the big bucks.). It is a packed leader board, as Germany’s Gilles Bernies leads with 189,600 chips, followed by Mike “timex” McDonald with 162,400, and then a whole host of players in the 130’s and 120’s. While Dublin seems like a choice location for a European Poker Tour stop, this is the first time in a decade that the EPT has found its way to the Irish city. Dublin was one of the original seven stops on the Tour; the Irish Winter Tournament was won by Ram Vaswani in October 2004, just as the poker
