Steve Ruddock : January 7th, 2016


The 2016 PokerStars PCA is in full swing. New Hampshire Representative introduces casino expansion bill. PokerStars has a new logo. And more.

2016 PCA Updates

The 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure kicked off with the $100k buy-in Super-High-Roller tournament, and the tournament pulled in a respectable 44 entrants and 14 reentries, for a total of 58 entries, a number that is down from 2015, but stacks up pretty well with previous years:

  • 2011: 38
  • 2012: 32 (30 entries and 2 reentries)
  • 2013: 55 (43 entries and 12 reentries)
  • 2014: 56 (46 entries and 10 reentries)
  • 2015: 66 (50 entries and 16 reentries)
  • 2016: 58 (44 entrants and 14 reentries)

With registration closed there are 37 players remaining as Day 2 of the tournament wears on. The top eight players will make the money, with the winner of the tournament pocketing over $1.6 million.

Away from the table, first time tournament reporter Robbie Strazynski got a chance to sit down with one of his poker idols, Daniel Negreanu: here’s the interview.

Quick Hitters

- New Hampshire State Representative Dan McGuire has introduced a bill that would bring about the largest gaming expansion in the Granite State’s history. McGuire’s bill would not only authorize casinos, it would also allow New Hampshire bars to add gambling machines.

- The California Assembly’s Governmental Organization Committee passed a bill that would legalize and regulate daily fantasy sports on Wednesday. Of course, this is just the first step of what will likely be a very long and hotly debated journey.

- PokerStars has tweaked their logo by subtly shifting the spade in their iconic brand. What do you think of the change?

- The shuttered Atlantic Club Casino in Atlantic City is back on the market after a deal with a Pennsylvania firm fell through. The Press of AC has all the details and some thoughts on what might happen next.

- Jennifer Newell lists her picks of the Five Women to Watch in 2016. Newell’s picks are pretty mainstream, as several are already well known female poker players.
