WPT Legends of game online penghasil uang
I got to watch a bit of the final day (before the final six tomorrow) action of the World Poker Tour Legends of Poker event at the Bicycle Club casino in Bell Gardens, California.
I wasn’t there to play–at least not to play in the $5000 event–more as moral support for my significant other (SS) who was participating in the Ladie’s game online penghasil uang Party (first place would win a spot on the WPT Ladies Invitational event which is filming September 1st).
Before she went in to start her tournament we spotted Clonie Gowen and Evelyn Ng milling about and I was almost run over by Shana Hiatt and a small group moving with her (she would also be playing in the ladies event). Access to the final few tables of the WPT main event was suprisingly easy to get and I was able to watch Doyle Brunson and Jennifer Harmon play a few hands from my vantage. I didn’t get to see any huge deciding pots or exciting races but I did get to see a lot of pots won without anyone ever showing a hand. Now that’s good poker.
Pokerwise I did put in some obligatory time in the 3-6 holdem game and ended up a 10 big bet loser (the deciding hand was when my AA was cracked by 88 on the turn when his third 8 miraculously appeared) after three hours when SS was eliminated during the 5th blind escalation from her tournament when her all in with TT vs another player with 77 ended in tragedy when the person in question hit a 7 on the turn. She did pretty well and felt she was playing well the whole tournament and managed to eliminate Kathy Liebert with her JJ vs KL’s 77.
I can definitely see the lure that the WPT has brought to poker. The air of the poker room was charged with excitement and it was pretty neat to be surrounded by celebrities (even if they are “just” poker celebrities). If you get a chance to participate in a WPT event (or even just railbird one for a little while) I highly recommend it.
On Full Tilt
Take Chris Ferguson, Howard Lederer, Phil Ivy, Erik Seidel, John Juanda, Erick Lindgren, Andy Bloch, Phil Gordon and Clonie Gowen and add an innovative and fun poker client and you’ve got Full Tilt Poker (Full Tilt). In the last few days they’ve opened the doors for real money play and each of these pros will be playing a minimum of 10 hours a week there so if you want to sit down with the best and win (or lose of that matter) you can do it now.
It’s worth a visit just to check out the fun and humorous avatars they have and the clean user inteface of the clients, and each pro that plays there has a custom avatar that looks like a boardwalk caricature of them. Very nice!
