Hit and Run: A Rising Star in Poker; WPT Montreal Main Event; The latest DFS Updates

Steve Ruddock : November 15th, 2015


Is Andy Andrejevic poker’s next superstar? October New Jersey online gambling numbers impress. Former online poker advocate turns up in DFS debate. And more.

Poker’s latest breakout star

Move over Ant Zinno, the poker world seems to have discovered a new breakout star in Andy Andrejevic. Andrejevic scored his biggest win of the year by winning the 2015 Asia Championships of Poker Super High Roller tournament for $1.125 million. In September Andrejevic finished 3rd and 7th in WPT Championship events, after finishing 4th in the River Poker Series Main Event – all three cashes were six-figure scores.

Andrejevic had to beat a pretty tough final table to book the win, as the final six included a pair of Poker Hall of Famers in Erik Seidel and John Juanda, as well Steve O’Dwyer and Bryn Kenney.

  1. Andy Andrejevic – $1,125,000
  2. John Juanda – $719,000
  3. Bryn Kenney – $469,000
  4. Steve O’Dwyer – $344,000
  5. Anton Astapau – 250,000
  6. Erik Seidel – $219,000

Quick Hitters

- New Jersey’s online gambling industry had its second best month ever in October of 2015, posting over $12.8 million in total online gambling revenue.

- A familiar name to supporters of legalized online poker has reemerged after the New York Attorney General’s ruling that DFS is in fact gambling and therefore illegal under current New York law. Former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson released a statement via DraftKings (a bit out of nowhere) espousing the libertarian arguments against the ruling.

- Is the daily fantasy sports industry making a mistake by focusing on the word gambling? Here are my thoughts on why even if they’re right, they can still be wrong, as the entire debate is subjective.

- A total of 650 players registered for the partypoker.net World Poker Tour Montreal Main Event at the Playground Club in Montreal. Late registration is still open for a few more levels so the final tally may tick up slightly.
