The thirteenth edition of the PokerNews Cup (PNC) is less than a month away at Finix Casino, located on the border of Greece in Kulata, Bulgaria on May 9-19.Famous Tournament Director (TD) and poker consultant Thomas Lamatsch organized the schedule and structure of these two massive events as part of being the TD of the festival.As most of the TDs, I started my career in 1993 as a poker dealer in the CCC Vienna.As I instantly fell in love with this game and with full energy, I was promoted in some years from a dealer to a floorman and finally to the manager of the CCC.In 2007, I was looking for a new challenge and founded my company European Poker Consulting.First I was focused on consulting activities, but very soon I was hired more as a TD.

DECISION POINT: In a $1/$2 no-limit hold'em cash game, you complete with from the small blind and see the flop with six opponents.You lead out on the flop and get two callers from UTG and the button.On the turn you check, UTG goes all in, and the button calls the shove with chips behind.Action is back on you...Click here to participate in this poll.Our hand plays well multi-way and isn't quite strong enough to get it in happily preflop if UTG were to limp-reraise all in after we raise.

After all, the New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker, or NJSCOOP, is PokerStars NJ’s premier tournament series.The series, which launched in 2016, has never featured a prizepool guarantee below $1 million.In fact, this year’s guarantee gives back the guarantees from the first three editions of the tournament.Occam’s Razor is in effectOf course, as stated by Occam’s Razor, the simplest solution is often the correct one.The reduced guarantees might literally be because there is less money available in the New Jersey market.

Pennsylvania online poker players can get their mouse, keyboard, grind playlist and snack of choice ready on July 15.Kevin O'Toole, executive director of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, revealed the news in a Wednesday meeting of the PGCB.O'Toole sat right down to kick off the meeting and, barely five minutes in, got to the topic that poker players in the Keystone State have been awaiting."Staff has reviewed the estimated time that it would take for us and the industry to complete all necessary steps, and it is our view that 90 days would be adequate," he said."Accordingly, I have advised the 10 iGaming certificate holders and three iGaming operators that a coordinated go-live period for interactive gaming will commence on July 15, 2019."The July 15 date drop means it will have been just a little under two years from bill passage to the first hand being dealt, as Pennsylvania's governor approved the law back in October 2017.

The 215 entry event with a guaranteed 10 million prize-pool attracted 45,929 unique entries and, combined with 15,413 re-entries, they conspired to produce a total prize pool of $12,268,400.The top 10,196 finishers received a cash return of some kind but when the Day 1 action was complete just 980 players remained and all were guaranteed a minimum $1,143 prize.After eight hours of Day 2 play just five players remained and they opted to share the remaining prize-money in a deal which saw a Greek player, using the alias ‘t4rz4n_21’, receive the biggest share of the remaining prize-pool, $625,073.But even the shortest stack at this juncture, Romanian player ‘idzake’ netted $509,664.Play did continue to determine a defined winner who would receive an additional 50,000 and the glory - that outright honour went to a player from China using the screen name ‘wangli0402’ who took top honours and a combined 611,944 in winnings.Smith Memorial in the RioThe eve of the 50th World Series of Poker, May 28th 2019, has been set as the date for a fundraising tournament in aid of the Gavin Smith Memorial Trust which benefits the children of the recently deceased poker player.

Michigan was poised to become the fifth state with legal online gambling last year, but an unexpected veto by outgoing Gov.Rick Snyder put the kibosh on those plans.The good news is that the sponsor is taking another bite at the apple this year.The even better news is that Michigan would now be the sixth state to legalize online gambling, after being leapfrogged by West Virginia.Jim Justice didn’t put his signature at the bottom of H 2934.The WV online gambling bill became law when Justice declined to act before the procedural deadline.

The poker world was abuzz back in 2009 when Tom "Durrrr" Dwan first publicly announced his "Durrrr Challenge."The original statement laid out the rules of the Challenge: "I'm making this heads-up challenge to the world.Four tables, minimum of $200/$400, and I'll put up $1.5 million to their $500,000.We play 50,000 hands minimum and if they end up a dollar after rake they keep the side money or whatever.So basically, if you and I played and you won a dollar, you would get my $1.5 million and if I won a dollar I would win your $500,000.Essentially, Dwan offered the high stakes online poker community an opportunity to make 3:1 on their bet if they were able to win money off of Dwan over the course of 50,000 hands.

We're dealt premium pocket pairs so rarely, it's a joy whenever we look down to see we've been dealt a hand like pocket kings.But sometimes in a satellite we might be better off folding such a hand in certain spots, particularly near the bubble.As shown in the video below, David Lappin and Dara O'Kearney consider a hand played by PokerNews strategy contributor Carlos Welch near the end of a satellite tournament when there were just eight players left vying for the six seats being awarded.O'Kearney, you might have heard, has co-authored the recently-published Poker Satellite Strategy, a book that focuses exclusively on how best to approach satellites.As is pointed out near the start of the discussion, the "endgame" of satellites can often involve making some particularly big folds, and that's exactly what Welch finds himself having to contemplate doing in the highlighted hand.With the blinds 600/1,200, Welch was on the button with a stack of 24,000 when the hand began.
