HNR 4/10: Party Poker Premier League Winner; Ivey = RaiseOnce

Dustin Gouker : April 10th, 2012


Scott Seiver takes down the Party Poker Premier League, and Phil Ivey is ‘RaiseOnce’ on PokerStars and more failure by the Epic Poker League. It’s all in Tuesday’s edition of the PTP Hit and Run.

RaiseOnce = Ivey: In one of the worst-kept secrets in online poker, Phil Ivey is apparently playing online poker at PokerStars, under the handle RaiseOnce. Details here; there’s also more in that report about Ivey and Tom Dwan playing in a $100K buy-in on the Asian Poker Tour this month.

Party Poker Premier League wraps up: Scott Seiver won the Premier League V, besting the likes of Tom Dwan, Patrik Antonius, Dan “jungleman12″ Cates and Phil Laak. You can check out how it went down here. Seiver won $500K, while Cates took second place.

Tony G is mad after busting:

Big Game: Next up for Party Poker is the Big Game. You can tune in here at 4 p.m. CEDT (or local time in Vienna, Austria). Tony G, Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Patrik Antonius, Sam Trickett, Erik Seidel and Luke Schwartz are among the players expected to take part in the 48-hour cash game.

Epic failure: Some insider stuff about the rise and fall of the Epic Poker League, their attempt to buy Wicked Chops Poker, etc. The more that comes out about the EPL’s parent company, the stranger it becomes, and the more clear it becomes that they didn’t know wtf they were doing.
