In a bid to keep up with the ever-changing poker landscape while offering something valuable to players and fans, the World Poker Tour (WPT) has announced the premiere of its new Alpha8.
A new series of super high-roller events created specifically for television, Alpha8 borrows some features from the now defunct Onyx Cup run by Full Tilt Poker and is due to kick off on August 26 with the Seminole Hard Rock Showdown in Florida.Alpha8 events are being specifically aimed at elite level players and wealthy amateurs with buy-ins starting at $100,000 while the opening tournament is to be recorded and shown on US television channel Fox Sports 1 in March.In much the same way the Onyx Cup attempted to create a global series for high- rollers, WPT President Adam Pliska stated that Alpha8 is to tour across the world showcasing the game’s finest players competing for ‘multi-million dollar prize pools’.To complement the new series of events, the WPT has recruited a new host in the form of Lynn Gilmartin. Having previously worked with other poker outlets including PokerNews.com, she will be on hand to provide interviews and colour commentary alongside more in-depth analysis.
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.
