Black Chip Poker running $10k April SNG Race

Posted on by RTR Dave

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 …

3 Online Poker Sites that are Recreational Player-Friendly

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
