YOUNG POLISH PLAYER TAKES TOUGH PCA 2014 FINAL TABLE
2014-01-14

A 22-year-old Polish online PokerStars qualifier Daniel Panka upset all the form books and created a nail-biting final beating Mike McDonald in a challenging three-hour heads up ending off a grueling 16-hour final table at the 2014 European Poker Tour PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event.
Isaac Haxton commentating at the event said he was "confident we were watching the play of one of the true anonymous greats of the online world transferring his talent to the bricks and mortar environment".
"Obviously, I'm an internet player," Panka told PokerStars. "I started playing live tournaments last year. Every day I sat down at the table, I was a little bit nervous, but then all that pressure came off. It's weird, but I didn't feel too much pressure. I was very confident in my game."
Following a three-way deal between Panka, Isaac Baron and Mike McDonald, Panka went on to take $1 423 096 in prize money, the trophy and the title.
"My mind and body concentrated on being a rock, a statue," Panka said following his impressively cool performance. "I can't dance with joy. I'm still in that mindset that I have to be concentrating."
Final table ended up:
Dominik Panka$1 423 096
Mike McDonald$1 064 865
Isaac Baron$1 207 599
Madis Muur$581 040
Daniel Gamez$447 040
Shyam Srinivasan$328 020
Pascal Lefrancois$242 020
Fabian Ortiz$173 220




KROON HOLDS ON TO CHIP LEAD ON WORLD SERIES OF POKER DAY 2C
2013-07-12

Day 2C action in the nfl football betting Online Bingo Play Slots Online in US NFL Odds World Series of Poker main event has been completed, with big poker names falling like ninepins in the action, and Mark Kroon still in the driving seat with 507,300 in chips, having started the day as chip leader.
Among those busting out of the main event during Day 2C were: Jason Mercier, Matthew Ashton, former WSOP main event champs Jamie Gold and Joe Hachem, Joe Serock, who tried to play on despite a road accident and a short spell in jail, top sports celebs Roberto Luongo and Gerard Piqu, Daniel Negreanu, UK ace Sam Trickett, Davidi Kitai, Jen Harman, Eric Baldwin, Joseph Cheong, Pieter de Korver,
Making it through to Day 3, when the survivor fields combine for the first time and the 648 player money bubble hoves into view, are bracelet record-holder Phil Hellmuth, ace players Phil Ivey and Michael Mizrachi, Haralabos Voulgaris, Vladimir Geshkenbein, Dirk Van Luijk, Jean-Robert Bellande, Glen Chorny and Stephen Chidwick.
Mizrachi had an up-and-down sort of day, at one point leading the field with a stack of well over half-a-million, only to see it depleted, then somewhat recouped toward the end of day's action.
Gus Hansen and Tom Dwan, who famously allowed most of their Day 1c chips to be blinded away whilst they played cash games at the Aria, pitched up today, but unsurprisingly were eliminated from the Main Event after a relatively short stay on the tables.
The top ten chip counts at the end of Day 2C were:
Mark Kroon 507,300
Victor Figueroa 460,600
William Reymond 405,000
Michael Mizrachi 394,600

MASTER CLASS IN POKER
2012-10-31

Top live and online poker ace Phil Ivey appears to have ambitions in the poker coaching field, evidenced by a recently launched website that is at present seemingly putting together a mailing list / customer base through an otherwise largely inactive site.
Iveypoker.com invites visitors to subscribe, but bigger things are clearly in prospect with reports that Ivey is signing up a star-studded team of poker pros that includes current World Series of Poker final table chip leader Greg Merson, Patrik Antonius and Jenn Harmon.
ESPN reports that Ivey plans to improve players' skills through the free-to-play internet site and instructional vids, and that he told the TV company he wants to give players an opportunity to improve and compete against some of the best names in the game
What were doing here is teaching people how to become a winning poker player," Ivey told ESPN. "I think a lot of people really dont know how to play poker, and I think this is going to be an opportunity to play with the best players in the world.
