Pokerstars is in Tapie out

It's official or it never was in the first place. Was Bernard Tapie and his son just middlemen for a Wynn/Pokerstars partnership? Or was Bernard Tapie seriously interested in Full Tilt? It seems to me that the live monopoly just got bigger and now has a monopoly over the online poker rooms. 888 and Pokerstars - Wynn in partnership with Pokerstars and 888 with Caesars. Party poker/Bwin with Wynn as well but most likely under the table. Pokerstars Phil Ivey For more about Pokerstars buys Full Tilt Poker here.

A Shot to Compete with the Best For Serious Money: Enter The World Series Extravaganza Poker Tournament

A Shot to Compete with the Best For Serious Money: Enter The World Series Extravaganza Poker Tournament

Poker is a special sport that is emerging on a large scale with heavy popularity for many reasons. Consider the World Series of Poker. It is what the sport is all about in terms of striving for equality of opportunity. You can get in if you have the will and skill, but you also need enough money.

Poker is a game we all love to play, that we can play in our homes with family or friends (and probably grew up doing) and without being tall, having great leaping ability, or the ability to run fast, you can take the unique skill sets it takes to be a poker player and rise to great heights and play for big money and a little fame.
The biggest impediment is usually the necessary bankroll to buy into the showcase tournaments like the World Series. If you had the opportunity to compete with other hungry players like yourself for a $20,000 stake, well then the door would have to be considered truly open for the person with the most skill.

Free online poker site is holding a contest to allow every poker player the chance to turn their dream of playing in the World Series into a reality. Simply enter Face-Up Gaming’s World Series Extravaganza Tournament Step 1 levels. You can win up to $20,000 in World Series Tournament vouchers. This will give you the freedom to play in the events you want to play in. So for example, if you are the player that wins the grand prize you can throw down to play in the $10,000 main event and maybe the $5,000 event, a $1000, a $1500 and then $1000. It is your choice.

This definitely opens a lot of doors and creates opportunity that may have been previously out of reach. As a player with great skill and big ambitions, you will have the rare opportunity to make your tournament poker experience what you want it to be according to your desires.

Skill in this sport is everywhere, but sadly we often never get to see it on display. Great poker players with the ability to play on the biggest stages many times work in the offices, construction sites, and drive the buses to stay on top of life financially. Many just don’t have the luxury and excess cash to compete against the best in the most important tournaments. Now you can.

Think of the World Series Extravaganza tournament as a playoff to get into the Super Bowl, World Series and Final Four all wrapped into one. Be the “Cinderella Story” and experience the magic of competing hard with other players with the same dream. You will raise your game in the process too.
Right now what you have to do is keep an eye out for World Series Extravaganza Tournament Qualifying step 1 and step 2 tournaments. Win the step 1 qualifying tournament you enter to get to step 2. From there play your way to the finals to be held on June 5 at 1 pm. This is where dreams start: a real chance to compete for the right to be in charge of your destiny.

What Team Full Tilt Has to Say about the Onyx Cup

In a discussion on the Onyx cup series were five members from Team Full Tilt. One was Phil Ivey, who is considered by many in the poker circuit to be the best poker player in the world. He has won all poker variations that can be played both online and in land based poker rooms. Next was Patrik Antonius who has earned 3 million in tournament winnings. He is also well-known as a skilled cash game player.

Gus Hansen who has won several tournaments featuring high buy-ins too was part of the discussion. He has won WPT titles in addition to a bracelet. Also present was Eric Seidel, a professional poker player has been on a successful run in high stakes games in 2011 alone. Tom Dwan a high stakes player who is considered one of the most creative and unpredictable player in the game too was in the discussion.

When asked whether the players were charged about the fact that playing in the game alone could cost close to a million dollars, these members from Team Full Tilt gave positive responses. Phil Ivey added that the tournament is not just about the money, it is about playing against those of high calibre. He stated that winning the event will bring with it a sense of pride that can be more valuable than the prize money.

The players were then asked about their opinion on whether the launch of the Onyx Cup was a surprise or expected. Patrik Antonius responded that the creation of such a series was bound to happen. According to him, poker had been running the same cycle for long - and it had to change. Eric Seidel said that the formation of such a series was a natural progression for the game. He added that Full Tilt Poker is the only organization capable of launching a series where the best players in the world could come together.

When asked whether players would face the additional pressure of performing in a series like the Onyx Cup, Gus Hansen stated that the game always brings with it a certain amount of pressure. According to him, there are few players who can rise above it and perform. He added that players like Phil Ivey, Eric Seidel, Patrik Antonius and Tom Dwan were capable of doing so – which is why they are a part of the series.

Poker Affiliates

Income of a poker affiliate

One of the most popular card games that are known as a challenge and a thought provoking game is poker. Thousands of web pages are dedicated to the fascinating game of poker. You will be surprised to see the increasing number of poker rooms on the internet. Online poker rooms have players all over the world that play and carve a niche for themselves.

A poker affiliate introduces new members to poker rooms that increase the traffic and popularity of the rooms. Online poker rooms are always hungry for new members as it is one of the best unique ways of making money by the rake. During the tournament season more members join poker rooms and thus poker rooms earn a lump sum in this manner.

The topic of discussion is the earnings of a poker affiliate. Diverse poker rooms have different means of earnings for a poker affiliate. One of the most common methods is called CPA that refers to the phrase cost per affiliation. Many frauds have happened in the past that has caused losses to poker rooms as new players that were introduced by poker affiliates. Why would a poker room pay a poker affiliate a lump sum if the player is not active and definite amount of rake has not been generated that meet the needs of the poker room.

Another method of earning is called MGR or revenue sharing. A poker affiliate gets a fixed percentage of the rake that is generated by all the new players introduced by an affiliate to the online poker room. This is a very lucrative means of earning money, as a percentage of the rake generated by each player will be deposited in your account.

A poker affiliate is spoilt for choice to earn credits either by CPA or MGR. Which is a better and steady means of earning money every month? Both plans have positive and negative points and CPA method looks very lucrative as you get a fixed percentage of money for introducing new players. However, most poker affiliates opt for MGR method, as it is a steady and a better means of earning more money.

The CPA method is very lucrative for poker rooms. The new players introduced by you should be active and the amounts earned by them are paltry then you may bid goodbye to $100 per referral as the manager can cancel the credits earned by you, as the poker room is not benefiting from the addition of these new players. A poker affiliate should know that CPA will never be a lucrative deal and you cannot earn more than the worth of the players that are introduced to the poker room.

The number of poker affiliates is rising as many new poker rooms are being introduced and the already existing ones consolidate their premium hold in by adding new members that will generate more business for the poker room. MGR will take a few months to consolidate and then it will give you fruitful returns.
