However, Mike Sexton is better known as the “ambassador of poker”. He is the main host of the World Poker Tour and spokesman for PartyPoker.

He has written for Card Player Magazine and founded also the Tournament of Champions of Poker, which let compete tournament winners from the previous year only.

WSOP 2009 Celebrated Worldwide

Sunday, June 7th, 2009 | Tournaments | 1 Comment

What’s New in the WSOP 2009?

Saturday, May 30th, 2009 | Tournaments | No Comments

Among the online poker rooms it’s business as usual, meaning that myriad WSOP-related promotions are popping up months ahead of the actual events, and there are literally hundreds of ways to qualify online.  Actually at least one poker site has offered WSOP packages since September last year, which is interesting considering that the official schedule was released little over a month ago.

Harrah’s has announced a handful of new additions and changes to the 2009 iteration of the World Series of Poker. The much debated delay of the Main Event final table that was introduced last year returns again, however.

New Events

There are 57 bracelet events in 2009 – two more than last year. One notable addition is a $1,000 No-limit Holdem “Stimulus Package” tournament, which is expected to entice a huge playing field and be the biggest event ever besides the Main Event. Another addition for 2009 only is a $40,000 No-Limit Holdem tournament to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the World Series of Poker.

Other than that the usual “World Championship” events in all different poker variations return. The No-Limit Holdem Main Event comes with several day 1’s and 2’s again, and will run between July 3 and 15.

No Re-Buys

Another highly noteworthy change this year is that there will be no re-buy events. The reason for this was that many participants felt that re-buy events provided too much of an advantage to professional players who have little to no limitation on the number of times they can re-enter the tournaments by re-buying.

Registration and Satellites

The buy-in to the Main Event is the usual $10,000, but there are plenty of other events for those on a tighter budget. 35 out of the 57 tournaments have a buy-in of $2,500 or less, so combined with the removal of re-buy tournaments this should be one of the most amateur-friendly WSOPs to date.

As usual there are also lots and lots of online satellites to all of the different events. Read more about the WSOP 2009 and specific online satellite offerings at learn-texas-hodem.com.

EPEC III in Sardinia – Poker at its best

Sunday, May 17th, 2009 | Tournaments | 1 Comment

As I mentioned in a previous post, I won a trip to Sardinia to play the Everest Poker European Cup (EPEC) final tournament.

After a two hour flight and a subsequent fifty minute bus ride, I arrived at the Chia Laguna Resort with fantastic weather (about 24° C), where all players were awaited by the Everest Team.

After the check-in, I was relaxing at the pool and awaiting the EPEC welcome party. Besides the other German and European players, I also met Silke Burghardt again, who, like myself, won the EPEC-qualification in Munich.

The next day stood under the sign of poker. The famous and probably best poker tournament director Thomas Kremser welcomed the players and said the holy words “dealer, shuffle up and deal” and the EPEC tournament began. First all went right, I could win a few pots but then I had a little downswing and after two hours. I was all-in with A10 unsuited against AQ unsuited. Fortunately, I got a ten on the river to double up with this two-outer.

After that, the poker god was not really well-minded to me and so after about four hours of playing time, I was busted with AJ suited against AK unsuited. My opponent flopped a full house and I was nearly drawing dead. Only the last ace would have helped me to split the pot. But turn and river was a blank card so the tournament ended for me. After that I had a lot of time to cheer for the other players and to explore the environment of the beautiful resort and the beach.

Here are a few pictures of the tournament and the beach:

EPEC Beach Pic 2

The first day of the tournament was played down to 36 players, which were all in the money. The 36th still got € 400, which was, looking at the drink prices in the disco (4 Euros for a Coke, 8 Euros for a Cuba Libre), not bad.

After about four and a half hours of playing time on the second day, the nine finalists were found. The final table contained three Swiss players, two Swedish players, an Italian player, a French and two Dutch players.

Chip counts of the last nine players

Seat Name Land Chip count
1 Sohail Ghaleh Assadi Switzerland 86.000
2 Mario Cotogno Italy 155.000
3 Johan Carlvik Sweden 264.000
4 Paweł Kabat Poland 204.000
5 Dirk Willem Karsies Netherlands 304.000

7 Pablo Finini Switzerland 464.000
8 Susanne Birkemose Sweden 91.000
9 Gael Seydoux Switzerland 153.000

The nine finalists played about five hours before the two last players were found:
Pablo Finini and Gael Seydoux, both from Switzerland, played the heads-up, which lasted only a few hands. Pablo Finini defeats his opponent and won the third EPEC tournament. He took a prize of € 21.000 and Gael Seydoux, as the runner-up, received still € 16.000.

They will compete against each other in 17 events. In sixteen events, the winner will take home $10.000 and in the “Main Event”, which will be kick boxing, the winner gets $20.000.

But there’s more to it than that: whoever wins the most individual events will receive a cut of 15% of the other player’s World Series of Poker (WSOP) winnings up to a maximum of $300.000. And if either Sorel Mizzi or Bertrand Grospellier can emerge victorious in 80% or more of the events, they’ll receive an extra $50.000 from the other player.

The following events are planned:

  • shoulder press
  • triceps pull down
  • chin-ups

Day 2

  • leg extension
  • squats

The winner of all weight lifting exercises is determined by whoever can lift the most for three repetitions.

Day 3

  • a tennis match best of three

Day 4

  • a jump roping challenge: whoever can jump the most number of times without missing will win this event.
  • arm wrestling

Day 5
The kick boxing main event: The two poker pros will square off for nine rounds in the ring.

Day 6
In a special swimming challenge they will answer the question who can stay at the center of a pool the longest without touching the sides or bottom.

A rowing event: The winner of the rowing event is determined by whoever of the two guys can row the furthest in 15 minutes.

We will post the result of this great challenge here. So stay tuned!

Doyle Brunson bets against his death prediction

Sunday, February 8th, 2009 | Miscellaneous | 1 Comment

Mack Rawden wrote a macabre article in CinemaBlend named “100 Most Likely People to Die in 2009″ and listed Doyle Brunson in 16th place with a 10% chance to die from obesity in 2009. In my opinion, this statement is really ridiculous. Doyle Brunson lost about 130 pounds in the past five years.

Therefore Doyle Brunson wrote a blog post on his online poker site DoylesRoom, calling Rawden a “clown” and then remarking, “… he said it was a 10% chance I would die. I would like to lay 10-1 for any amount if anybody knows this joker.”

Marc Rawden accepted the bet for $1.000, which means Doyle Brunson would pay out $10.000 if he dies in 2009, with all the winnings going to the American Cancer Society.

One of Brunson’s poker colleagues will hold the bet. The possible list of trustees including Daniel Negreanu, Phil Ivey, Jennifer Harman and Mike Sexton.
