Hit and Run: Mike Dentale’s Breakout November; New FTP Avatar Announced; DFS Unlike Poker Circa 2011

Steve Ruddock : November 29th, 2015


Longtime poker player Mike Dentale has been crushing on the live tournament scene. Final day of the 2015 Unibet Poker Open. New Full Tilt Poker avatar announced. And more.

Mike’s unbelievable run

I don’t always root for poker players… but when I do, I root for Mike Dentale. Luckily for me, Mike Dentale has given me a lot to root for over the past week or so.

After bubbling the WPT Montreal Main Event final table, but picking up a solid $43,000 payday in the process, Dentale headed off to the Borgata to play in the Fall Poker Open.  Less than two weeks after his WPT Montreal bubble, Dentale found himself at the final table of the Borgata FPO Main Event, and ended up taking down the tournament for a $336k score.

If you’re curious why I root for Mike, it’s because I got to know him when I appeared on Poker Night in America. He’s loud, funny to some, and I suppose obnoxious to others, at the table, but he’s also a good guy away from the table. He also makes a great Twitter follow: @MikeUnbelievable on Twitter.

Quick Hitters

- The Unibet Poker Open Main Event is in full swing, and for those of you who can’t get enough poker, the final day is being streamed live on Twitch.tv.

- With almost 8,000 votes counted, Inflatable Tube Man crushed the competition to become the newest Full Tilt Poker avatar. Inflatable Tube Man tallied over 50% of the total votes for the Joe McKeehen-esque victory.

- The poker community’s strike over PokerStars VIP changes is gaining steam, with some 1,200 people signed up for the three day boycott at last count. However, even if the strike is successful, the industry is split as to what kind of impact it will have.

- A former federal prosecutor who is now advising FanDuel, says the comparisons to the 2011 shutdown of three major online poker sites is unfounded.
