Hit and Run: PCA Main Event Down to Final Table; StarsBet Launches Spin & Bet; Poker’s State of the Union

Steve Ruddock : January 14th, 2016


The PCA Main Event is down to the final table. ¬†PPA issues a “State of the Union” for poker. StarsBet launches Spin & Bet at their new online sports book. And more.

PCA Main Event

There is a familiar face at the final table of the PCA Main Event, as poker pro Tony Gregg has made the final table of one of poker’s most prestigious tournaments for the third time. Gregg is looking to only marginally improve on his previous finishes in 2009 and 2012, where both times he finished second.

Gregg will have some stiff competition, considering top-flight poker pros Mike Watson, Toby Lewis, and Vladimir Troyanovskiy, are also among the final six players.

Gregg started the final table second in chips, but he’s lost a couple of pots in the early going and is now down to 5th place at the time of writing.
