HNR 2/25: You Can Challenge Durrrr, Ivey Owns at High-Stakes Tables

Dustin Gouker : February 25th, 2011


Find out how you can challenge durrrr, and the weekly high-stakes update with Ivey’s big week. Read more in today’s PTP Hit and Run.

Challenge durrrr: No, not the durrrr Challenge. This is different. It’s your chance to try to play your way into a heads-up game at Full Tilt against Tom Dwan, in which you could end up winning $1.5M. Want to see how you can earn the shot? Read here. The promotion starts Saturday.

High stakes: Phil Ivey got back to his winning ways last week, while Gus Hansen continues to obliterate his competition, up $3M this year. Check out what happened in the nosebleed action at PokerStars and Full Tilt here. Also of note? Martonas is back at Full Tilt, and Phil Galfond is getting killed on both sites.

And Isildur1 recently took some cash away from Daniel “jungleman12″ Cates. Read about that session here.

The Big Game: Filming for PokerStars The Big Game is going on now. For a look behind the scenes, watch below:

No more datamining at Full Tilt?: Possibly. It appears that Full Tilt Poker is moving aggressively – and successfully – to cut off the ability of some datamining operations to access the site, most notably Story here.

You can see the graph of what’s going on in the high-stakes cash games in a graphic below; how accurate this is for Full Tilt is unknown.

L.A. Poker Classic boycott?: There has been a difference of opinion between poker players and the California casinos on legislation that would regulate online poker in the U.S. Will that mean a boycott by some of the top players of the main event and the high roller tourney at the LAPC? Story here speculates.

Iowa next?: Iowa appears to be the next state that will look at regulating online poker. Story here. Could more state efforts mean a push at the federal level once again? Only time will tell.

Rio robbed: Someone walked into the Rio, the home of the World Series of Poker, and took about $30K at gunpoint. At least he didn’t go in during the WSOP and take tournament chips. Story here.

EPT Copenhagen: We’re at a final table of the European Poker Tour event, where Per Linde and Kevin “kice32″ Iacofano are there. Read more about the final table here.

And answers the very important question of why all Scandinavian countries are the same different. We kid because we love.
