"March Madness") played out to its conclusion, the Major League Baseball season started, the NBA and NHL playoffs got underway, and the Masters Tournament wrapped up in exciting fashion on Sunday.I'm not referring to betting on games or playing daily fantasy sports, both of which many poker players enjoy.Understanding Probabilities: Virginia's Improbable Title RunA year ago the Virginia Cavaliers became the first No.The tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, and before 2018 the top-seeded teams in each of the four regions had a record of 132-0 in first-round games.16 University of Maryland, Baltimore County Retrievers shockingly whipped No.
It has been over two months since Run It Once Poker went live, and so far based on player’s feedback and the traffic the site has received, RIO has been well received by the poker community.The site launched with a limited range of game offerings, with No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha 6-max cash games starting at €4 buy-in (2c/4c) and going up to €2000 (€10/€20).The client is still in beta mode and will remain in this phase until the platform is “nearly flawless,” according to Phil Galfond, the founder of RIO.“I have to say, while it’s difficult and stressful most of the time, it’s a lot more fun and interesting than it was before launch!” wrote Galfond in his latest blog post titled 'Running a Poker Site: Two Months In.’ “There are so many potential areas to focus on, so much data to analyze, and we can now get quick feedback/results on any decision we make.”Galfond went on to say that he is quite “happy with the launch,” but he is also finding it difficult to assess how things are going in general.The site went live on February 6 with many unique features setting RIO apart from other online poker rooms.
The 2019 World Series of Poker is about six weeks away.As the series draws nearer, I'm reviewing another hand from a previous WSOP event I played, this time a $1,500 buy-in no-limit hold'em event in which I flop top pair out of position and my opponent keeps making small bets on every postflop street.The blinds were 400/800 with a 100 ante, and action began with a (seemingly) tight player with about 22,000 to start opening from early position for 1,600.It folded to me in the big blind where I had 30,000 to begin and had been dealt .The flop was good for me, coming to give me top pair and a gutshot straight draw.I checked, and my opponent bet small — 1,200 into the 4,400 pot.

It came in Harrah's Cherokee Event #4: $600 No-Limit Hold'em where he outlasted a field of 391 to collect $44,297 and his 12th gold.I still got the most money earned, most everything on the WSOP Circuit."While most rings isn't the title he's most concerned about, Hawkins is happy with what his results indicate, as he shared with WSOP tournament reporters."I still got the most money earned, most everything on the WSOP Circuit, so it’s pretty much the standard, but that makes me feel like my game has evolved to where it should be.It’s all about positivity and good flow of things going the right way.”Hawkins, 39, has been all about the positivity of late, frequently posting inspirational messages on social media alongside the hashtag #HawksView, sharing his results and keeping the haters at bay.
Naturally, the namesake hand itself will yield quite a rich prize.The 200-billionth hand can occur on either cash tables or during a tournament hand.There is also no requirement for the level of the game to win.Even the most micro of micro-stakes players could find themselves $10,000 richer.Thankfully, winning big during the 200 Billion Hands celebration is not simply a matter of lucky seating.At the strike of every hour between 9 p.m. and midnight EST each evening, PokerStars is dropping a surprise chest randomly into an active game onsite.
