Hit and Run: Somerville Going to AC for Run It Up; GPL and Sina Strategic Partnership; Controversy at SHRPO

Steve Ruddock : April 19th, 2016


Honest mistake or collusion in a SHRPO satellite? Jason Somerville bringing Run it Up to Resorts Casino in Atlantic City. NJ DGE clarifies gray and black market rules. And more.

Jason Somerville is coming to Atlantic to RUN IT UP

Jason Somerville and several other PokerStars pros (Chris Moneymaker and Barry Greenstein are confirmed)  will soon be headed to Resorts Casino in Atlantic City for the Run It Up: Resorts Rumble. This will be the first live/online tie-in event PokerStars has hosted since launching in New Jersey just over a month ago.

The Run It Up Resorts Rumble is a full day of activities that includes an online poker tournament, as well as a Q&A session with the PokerStars pros and an exclusive VIP party at the Landshark Bar & Grill.

Online Poker Report has all the details on how you can take part in the day’s festivities.

Much of PokerStars early New Jersey advertising has keyed in on Somerville, who is one of the most high-profile and respected players in poker.

Quick Hitters

- Jason Wheeler recounts what appears to be a blatant, albeit head scratching case of collusion during a satellite tournament at the SHRPO. Mike Dentale later posted his version of events, which makes a bit more sense than the original accusation.

- Based on their latest director’s bulletin, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement is trying to make the rules governing black and gray operators a bit more black and white. Haley Hintze has more on what this means here.

- The Global Poker League has entered into a strategic partnership with China based Sina Sports, according to a press release by GPL founder Alex Dreyfus.

- Phil Hellmuth will MC the 18th annual Tiger Jam Poker Night, a charity tournament hosted by Tiger Woods, which costs a mere $11,000 to attend.

- Josh Crain is the latest MSPT Main Event winner, as the 38 year-old Colorado resident, with only a single documented tournament cash on his resume, won the MSPT Golden Gates Championship in Black Hawk, Colorado.

- In my latest column I take a little trip down memory lane to see what poker was like before the boom hi.
