Patrik Antonius joins the Premier League
And when we say Premier League, we’re not thinking about football.
The Party Poker Premier League line-up is richer for one of the most recognized names in the poker world. Antonius will be joining the other 15 title candidates in Vienna on April 4th and will grab his seat in the $125,000 buy-in Main Event.
The Fifth Main Event of the Premier League takes place alongside this year’s WPT Vienna and will end on April 10th 2012. Some of the biggest names have confirmed their participation including our very own Sam Trickett. With players like Tony G, Vanessa Selbst and Luke Schwartz on the felt we can agree that this tournament will be huge fun to watch.
Pokerstars goes EU and mobile
It’s been a big week for the biggest poker site and their customers.
Many Scandinavian players were waiting for this to happen and it finally did. The company acquired a new Maltese gaming license and this act will allow Swedish and Finnish players to play tax-free poker. In case you didn’t know, on-line poker winnings in these two countries are tax-free if they’re won in EU countries or under a European gaming license.
On the other side of the North Sea, the UK players now have to option to play poker via their mobile devices. The software is designed for iOS and Android devices and supports both real and play money games and both Omaha and Hold’em. As of right now we’re still waiting for more reviews of the software, but reports so far are rather encouraging.
The mobile application is currently available only to UK (North Ireland excluded) and Italian players. You can get the app at Pokerstarsmobile.com.
The community united against FTP debtors
In an attempt to send a clear message to the poker world, the 2+2 community wants the former Full Tilt shareholders and debtors banned from the 2012 WSOP events.
In a topic started almost a week ago, a user named ‘sparky999’ created a topic suggesting a global petition against people involved with the FTP and its subsidiaries which would result in a ban for all that were involved. Sparky suggested that everyone should contact Jack Effel, the WSOP tournament director, and inform him of this cause. He also suggested a killer-line to be shared within the community:
‘I hereby state that unless all FTP shareholders and those who currently owe money to FTP and have not signed a letter of intent to repay are banned from all WSOP events this year then I will not participate in any WSOP event’.
The topic is growing larger by the day and you can get involved by reading the full OP here.
Chris Ferguson and folding equity
We guess he never heard of Ponzi schemes either.
