Exciting Changes on the Way From PokerStars

August 25, 2018 - Canadian poker giant PokerStars has been innovating new ways to enhance users' experiences on their website. Rumors are flying around that PokerStars could be working on a way to introduce short-deck games to its extensive menu, offering yet another way for you to win big online.

In PokerStars' schedule, the new addition is called Six Plus Hold'em, and is played with only 36 cards instead of the traditional 52, eliminating all cards from 2 to 5. The Ace can still be high or low, but numerous big chances could mean that players will take some time getting used to the new game.

Phil Ivey's Borgata Troubles Continue

July 22, 2018 - Phil Ivey's recent return to tournament poker has excited poker fans the world over, but it has also gotten the attention of the Borgata, which is eager to collect on the $10.1 million the courts deemed Ivey owed the casino back in December 2016.

Ivey was involved in two court battles over winnings derived from edge sorting in baccarat at Borgata in Atlantic City and in punto banco at Crockfords Club in the U.K. in 2012. The courts ruled in favor of the casinos in both cases, deeming the actions of Ivey and his partner, Cheung Yin Sun, to fall under the category of cheating due to the unfair advantage gained by edge sorting. Through a series of appeals, Ivey was unable to make headway on getting either ruling reversed.

Poker Stars

Poker Stars is one of the oldest poker rooms on the net. Right from the beginning Poker Stars focused on tournaments and is now definitely number one on the Internet regarding tournaments. The room also hosts a huge number of satellites to different live tournaments and numerous past and present WSoP main event winners qualified through Poker Stars.

But Poker Stars isn’t just about tournaments, there are plenty of cash games to choose from, including some juicy low and midlimit games. Unfortunately Poker Stars seldom offers any sign up bonuses to new players but further down I’ll explain how I managed to get one.

When it comes to famous players there are quite a few at Poker Stars, including Chris Moneymaker, Greg Raymer, Barry Greenstein, Joe Hachem and Tom McEvoy.
