Hit and Run: Somerville Inks Deal with DraftKings; Best Poker Fights; Internet Poker Wall of Fame

Staff : August 23rd, 2015


Jason Somerville is now sponsored by DraftKings. A look at the five greatest fights in poker history. Who belongs on the Internet Pokers Wall of Fame? And more.

Jason Somerville moonlighting with DraftKings

PokerStars Team Pro Jason Somerville is turning into the next big thing in poker, but it appears that PokerStars didn’t lock Somerville up to any kind of exclusivity agreement‚Ķ at least not beyond poker.

It’s been announced that Somerville has signed with the DFS website DraftKings, a move that is all the more eye-catching considering PokerStars parent company, Amaya Gaming, recently purchased the DFS Victiv and is rebranding it as Stars Draft.

This will likely put Somerville in some difficult spots, but as he’s proven on his Twitch stream, the poker pro is a master at making difficult spots profitable.

Five poker throw downs not to be missed

Poker Strategy’s Barry Carter lists his top five poker fights over the years (actual fights not figurative fights) and lucky for us, four of his picks can be seen on YouTube!

The most unfortunate absence is the missing Sam Grizzle knocking out Phil Hellmuth video, but Carter’s picks are still pretty good. Check them out here.

Quick Hitters

- 2+2 PokerCast Host Adam Schwartz is asking the community to make nominations for what he has termed the Internet Pokers Wall of Fame.  Schwartz put forth PokerStars founder Isai Scheinberg as his first choice.

- The EPT Barcelona Super High Roller tournament set all kinds of records as the tournament tallied nearly 100 entries.

- British poker pro (and former actor) Sam Razavi has a poker specialty. Razavi isn’t a cash game or tournament pro, and he doesn’t specialize in a particular poker format; what Razavi does is dominate the APPT. This past week Razavi won his 4th APPT title.

- Matthew Hilger discusses the process behind creating the WCOOP tournament series, including the addition of the $51k High Roller tournament.
