Steve Ruddock : January 6th, 2016


American Poker Awards nomination process underway. Day 1 of the PokerStars PCA Super-High-Roller. How much is a poker lessons from Beth Shak worth? And more.

American Poker Awards nominations

The nomination process for the American Poker Awards has begun and unsurprisingly, there is a little bit of social media controversy over who should be nominated, who should be in what category, and the process itself.

This year the APA’s decided to “suggest” 10 or so potential candidates in each category in order to make sure voters didn’t mistakenly overlook something that happened during the course of 2015, and to make sure that all of the worthy nominees are considered. ┬áThis is extremely helpful in several of the categories, but some people left off the short list feel it might impact their chance of being nominated.

The good news is that the chatter is a clear indication that the APA’s (in just its second year) has become a highly prestigious award.

Quick Hitters

- The PokerStars Caribbean Poker Adventure is underway, and the series is kicking off with a bang, the $100k Super-High-Roller tournament. Thus far there have been 40 entries, but that number is expected to continue to climb. You can follow the action at PokerNews.com.

- Online poker was taken off the agenda for today’s hearing in California, leaving the Assembly to discuss just one matter: daily fantasy sports.

- Poker Update takes a look at one of the poker world’s best players that nobody knows about, Sam Razavi in this interview by Lee Davy. Just how good is he? Consider for a moment that Razavi has won the APT Player of the Year award four years running.

- This entire snippet from a gossip page has me scratching my head, as I try to figure out what a World Series of Poker finalist is, and how on earth Beth Shak is selling poker coaching lessons for $1,000/hour?
