PKR is offering the Ultimate WSOP Experience

Posted on by RTR Dave

To many players, the WSOP is about much more than just playing for huge prize pools and trying to get rich. It’s also about experiencing Sin City in its full glory by staying in luxury hotel suites and partying hard. Unfortunately, most online poker rooms don’t recognize this dream since their prize packages mainly consist of a tournament seat and budget hotel stay.

Black Chip Poker running $10k April SNG Race

Posted on by RTR Dave

Online poker cash races are always fun because they give frequent players a chance to compete for huge prizes. Unfortunately, the problem with these races is that cash players have an advantage since it’s easier to generate rake by playing lots of hands per hour. Going further, sit and go specialists don’t really have much of an opportunity to win. This being said, Black Chip Poker have chosen to hold a contest that’s solely dedicated to SNG players. This $10,000 SNG Race will run from now until April 30th, and first place is guaranteed $1,500. But even if you don’t …

Posted on by RTR Dave

For years, the online poker ecosystem saw sharks and fish dispersed relatively evenly throughout various stakes. And this naturally-formed model worked well for years as poker sites and professional grinders profited off new and unskilled beginners. However, online poker rooms have begun to see their profits taper off in recent times since new players aren’t sticking around like they used to. The primary blame has been directed at multi-tabling regulars as well as bum hunters, who refuse to click an open seat unless they have an edge. And while professionals do provide benefits to the poker community, they’re often believed …

Americas Cardroom simplifies Rakeback System

Posted on by RTR Dave

For the past couple of years, Americas Cardroom has remained one of the premier US-friendly online poker destinations.

UK Model Charlotte Jackson signs with Sky Poker

Sky Poker literally just got a lot more attractive after signing British model and TV presenter Charlotte Jackson to a deal.

Rakeback for Mobile Poker Players

Posted on by RTR Dave

One of the biggest online poker trends lately involves players grinding through their iPads, iPhones and Androids. By playing poker through a mobile device, you gain a huge advantage in the convenience department.
