A poker legend playing for the EPT Barcelona title. Excerpts from Phil Ivey’s edge-sorting deposition. PKR adds jackpot sit & go tournaments to their lobby. And more.

Juanda takes down EPT Barcelona Main Event

There are few players that can match the resume of John Juanda, and it will be even harder now that Juanda has added an EPT title to his laundry list of poker accomplishments.

Juanda came into the final table towards the back of the pack but thanks to a dominating performance at the final table he took a commanding 4-1 chip lead into heads up play against Steve Warburton. Warburton put up a good fight, but Juanda’s experience, skill, and chip lead proved insurmountable, and within 20 hands it was all over.

Despite his many successes, Juanda has never won an EPT or WPT title (he has runner up finishes on both tours), although he does have five WSOP bracelets.

Phil Ivey deposition

PokerNews.com managed to procure some excerpts of Phil Ivey’s deposition in his edge-sorting case against the Borgata. The deposition was conducted on March 26, 2015, and according to Ivey, Borgata plied him with booze and attempted to distract him with a parade of cocktail serving pretty girls.

There certainly weren’t any bombshells (unless you don’t understand the reason casinos offer you free drinks which are often served by pretty women in provocative outfits) but the deposition is still an interesting read.

Quick Hitters

- If you’re interested in becoming a freelance poker writer (DON’T DO IT!) ¬†PokerUpdate.com’s David Huber has detailed the in’s and out’s, the do’s and the don’ts, that will allow you to succeed. My advice: DON’T DO IT!

- PKR is the latest online poker site to jump on the Spin & Go bandwagon, launching jackpot sit & go tournaments this past week. PokerStars SPin & Go’s have become the face of the poker innovation, but it should be noted it was Winamax’s Expresso and not PokerStars’ Spin & Go’s that came first.

- iGaming affiliate giant FourCubed has purchased the online poker training website DeucesCracked.com. With the acquisition, FourCubed has expanded upon their already impressive suite of verticals.
