Earlier this week, one of our blogs considered whether poker would continue to grow or was a downturn inevitable. News from Redtooth Poker suggests that the former is more likely than the latter.
According to a report in The Morning Advertiser, a trade magazine for the pub industry, Redtooth Poker, one the biggest promoters of small stakes, pub poker in the UK, has announced a big upturn in players and turnover. The group reported that tournaments were up 47% in 2009 with over 80,000 players on the books. Redtooth’s turnover now tops £2m, up 20% on the year. Redtooth Poker director Steve Saul told the magazine that, "… our live pub poker business [has] been a huge hit for licensees and their customers. We keep things simple for the operator and we keep customers in the pub for the evening. “There’s been a lot of talk about food being the big focus for pubs but operators mustn’t overlook the fact that people also go to pubs to be entertained. We’re offering a cost effective solution to those quiet week nights.” Today’s pub players are tomorrow’s tournament fields so anything that is boosting the lower echelons of the game can only be a good thing.
Christmas is just around the corner and Juicy Stakes and Intertops Poker are getting into the holiday spirit by offering online poker players the chance to double one re-load deposit up to $100.
Juicy Stakes has announced the launch of a series of daily freeroll online poker tournaments that will award players with spots into special weekly games featuring prize pools of up to $300.
Four online poker players that won prize packages into the $2,400 main event of the PPC Aruba World Championship 2016 courtesy of Intertops Poker and Juicy Stakes are on their way to the Caribbean this weekend and will be joined by vlogger ‘TheTrooper97’.
Americas Cardroom has released its fifth and final sponsored video chronicling the action from the Punta Cana Poker Classic 2016, which ended on Sunday with Latvian player Eduards Kudrjavcevs taking the main event title and its $143,675 first-place prize.
