The 2,000,000,000th hand celebrations on the immense iPoker network have been marred by a controversy surrounding the winner of the $60,000 worth of prizes.
A player known as Derrickki was ten-tabling heads-up NLHE in the hopes of hitting the 2bnth hand and he did, playing at iPoker site Betfold. However, in a fast-growing thread on the Two Plus Two poker forums, he claims that the $60,000 worth of cash and tournament tickets has not yet materialised, leading to speculation that Betfold were not part of the “network-wide” 2,000,000,000th hand promotion at iPoker. This isn't the first time that the Two Plus Two forums have got stuck into Betfold. Many players have been complaining about delayed payments and poor customer support response time at Betfold since late November.
The six-day Punta Cana Poker Classic 2016 begins later today and poker aficionados are being offered the chance to check out all of the action via a special video blog being sponsored by Americas Cardroom.
The PPC Aruba World Championship 2016 tournament series is due to kick off next month and four competitors will be joining the $2,400 buy-in main event fray after winning three-tier online poker satellite tournaments at Juicy Stakes and Intertops Poker.
The sixth annual edition of the Goliath poker tournament series finished over the weekend with its main event attracting some 5,232 entries to create a prize pool worth £523,200 ($680,421).
The sixth annual edition of Grosvenor Casinos’ Goliath tournament series may have begun last week but players are being advised that there is still time to qualify for seats into its prestigious £120 buy-in main event.
