PokerStars will be eliminating all non-Zoom heads-up tables on February 12. New poker room coming to Wynn. Pennsylvania urges Congress to repeal PASPA. And more.
PokerStars can expect a bit more mud flung their way from a new group of disgruntled players following their latest announcement. Effective February 12, PokerStars will no longer offer traditional heads-up poker tables. All heads-up games will be played in the Zoom format, where players join a pool of players, with the opponent changing every hand, instead of choosing a specific opponent at a specific table.
This will likely rankle head-up players, but in the long run this is a move PokerStars, and online poker had to make, the reason for which I explain in this column.
On February 7th, PokerStars crowned its first million-dollar Spin & Go winner of 2016, and its ninth overall, when a Russian online player using the screen-name Rainman751 defeated his two opponents in just four hands.
Here is a list of the Spin & Go million dollar winners from the PokerStars blog:
- On May 26, The Wynn will debut its new poker room. Director of Poker Ryan Beauregard spoke with PokerNews to discuss the new room and what players can expect.
- More details of the potential Amaya Gaming takeover bid being led by current CEO David Baazov are coming to light, as iGaming Business is reporting several other key employees will be part of the takeover effort.
- CNBC decided to go there, and discuss the 800 pound gorilla in the room. How can DraftKings continue to adamantly declare their contests aren’t gambling in the united States while simultaneously holding a gambling license in the UK in order to operate in that market?
- The Pennsylvania Gaming Oversight Committee passed a resolution on Tuesday urging Congress to repeal the federal ban on sports betting known as PASPA.
