Americas Cardroom Issues Official Statement On Rumored $5 Million GTD Promotion.

San Jose, Costa Rica – August 1, 2015 – The old saying goes that ‘all publicity is good publicity’, but some rumors floating around the internet have caused online poker room, Americas Cardroom, to make an official statement and set the record straight.

It all started on Friday afternoon when word started spreading in online poker forums about a ‘$5 Million Guaranteed’ promotion that was being offered by Americas Cardroom. It was said that this promotion, which included five separate $1,000,000 GTD Texas Hold’em tourneys in September and October, was a done deal.

Management from Americas Cardroom was contacted for comment and wishes it to be known that the news circulating around the online poker forums was leaked information without official authorization.

“We’re happy that online poker players are interested in our tournaments, but the recent chatter in the online poker forums is not official policy yet. It is interesting however, how difficult it is to keep this kind of big news under wraps,” said Americas Cardroom spokesperson Michael Harris. “All that being said, the $5 Million Guranteed promo is something that we will announce on Monday if our upcoming Million Dollar Sunday is a success.”

The Million Dollar Sunday is the signature tournament offered by Americas Cardroom. They’ve had two successful ones already this year, with the next coming this Sunday, August 2nd at 3pm ET. There is a $1,000,000 GTD prize pool, with $200,000 earmarked for the first place winner.

Added Harris, “We’re really excited about this next Million Dollar Sunday, with all our internal forecasts predicting a great turnout. Visit our site on Sunday as there could be that $5 Million GTD promo announcement after all.

Poker Tip of The Day

Always keep a full clip when sitting at cash tables

Put simply when sitting at a cash table you should always have at least 80% of the total buy in setting in front of you in chips.  As some friends in the military would say you need to keep a full clip so when the time comes you can inflict maximum damage.  If you are sitting at a $1 – $2 table then the usual buy in amounts are $100 minimum & $200 max. buy in.  This means if you fall below $160 after buying in for $200 you should rebuy back up to $200.  Why you ask?  The simplest way to put it is while sitting and waiting for a good hand to play you finally get a hand in position. You make a raise and have someone come over the top of you.  This is the set up you want.  Now it’s time to get the chips in and you do not want to be shoving in with just $75 or $110 you want to be able to push in $160 – $200 and capture the most chips you can.  If your only pushing $75 or $80 chips your only going to  capture $150 – $160 on a double up or 225 – 240 on a triple up when those numbers could be $320 -$400 on a double and $480 – $600 on a triple up.

In this example pictured above Team P4AC player Holdem1eyejack is in a three way hand with two other players in this real money game at Carbon Poker.  ArchStantonsGrave raises to $14,000, fold, fold, boom247 reraises all in for $131,302, holdem1eyejack calls the all in with $125,808 and this is all pre-flop. Well you can see that Jack got a little lucky here with his kings. He was out carded pre-flop but hit trips on the flop that turned into a boat kings over sixes.  Jack went into the hand with $125,808 and tripled to $392,824.

So the advice here is to always keep a full clip when sitting at cash tables.

Please leave comments, thoughts or suggestions for topics.

Good luck and run good.

EUROPEAN ONLINE TITAN MOVES AHEAD WITH LICENSING IN NEVADA

3 June 2013

By Howard Stutz

LAS VEGAS — European online gaming giant bwin.party digital entertainment plc is moving forward with licensing in Nevada to operate Internet poker websites with MGM Resorts International and Boyd Gaming Corporation, despite comments to the contrary from the company’s chief executive, an attorney said.

Gilbraltar-based Bwin.party is still awaiting approval from state gaming regulators after filing its application more than a year ago.

In interviews with online gaming publications last month, Bwin.party CEO Norbert Teufelberger said the company chose “not to operate in Nevada” and would focus its attention on New Jersey, which enacted Internet gaming laws earlier this year.

Las Vegas gaming attorney Frank Schreck, who represents Bwin.party, said the New Jersey licensing process is being expedited time period by the state. The online company wants to be in the first wave of the application process.

“New Jersey is the focus because there is a definite time table,” Schreck said. “The company is still moving forward in Nevada.”

Teufelberger’s comments were made after Bwin.party announced 2012 earnings had declined 17 percent. The company also educed its profit estimates for 2013.

Teufelberger told media outlets he believes Bwin.party could split New Jersey’s potential online gaming market with Caesars Entertainment Corp., which owns four of the 12 casinos in Atlantic City and is planning to launch a World Series of Poker branded website in New Jersey.

Bwin.party would enter the market through its partnership with Boyd Gaming, the operator and 50 percent owner of the market-leading Borgata.

In April, Boyd Gaming CEO Keith Smith said the Borgata brand would allow the company “to capture a substantial share of this lucrative market.”

Operation of New Jersey’s online gaming websites is limited to the owners of Atlantic City’s casinos. Like Nevada, New Jersey’s gaming regulations only allow wagers to take place on computers and mobile devices located only within New Jersey’s borders.

Because of the state’s proximity to East Coast population centers, such as New York City and Philadelphia, and New Jersey’s population of 8.1 million, analysts speculate the market could be substantial.

Smith said Boyd wanted to be one of the first casinos to launch online gaming in New Jersey. Smith also said Boyd Gaming was “evaluating the opportunity” to offer online poker in Nevada.

In 2011, MGM Resorts, Boyd and Bwin.party announced a partnership to create a Nevada-based online gaming company to offer Internet poker. Bwin.party would own 65 percent of the business, MGM Resorts would have 25 percent and Boyd would have the remaining 10 percent.

“We’re committed to the partnership and we’re evaluating the best way to enter the market,” said MGM Resorts spokesman Gordon Absher.

MGM Resorts and Boyd Gaming have both been licensed by state gaming regulators to operate online poker in Nevada. Officials from both companies said they would not launch a website until Bwin.party was licensed.

“(We) are determining the best way to enter what is shaping up to be a robust yet crowded market,” Smith said in April about Nevada.

State gaming regulators have approved nearly two dozen casino operators and technology providers for interactive gaming licenses. However, just one website, Station Casinos-controled Ultimate Poker, has been approved to operate and launched on April 30.

Bwin.party was formed in 2011 through the merger of Bwin International and Party Gaming, which created the world’s largest online poker company.

PartyGaming operated online poker in the U.S. before the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act became law in 2006. The company ceased its U.S. operations on the same day.

Three years later, PartyGaming signed a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice and paid a $105 million fine. The company was cleared from ever being prosecuted for its pre-2006 online gaming operations.

According to an article on CalvinAyre.com, Teufelberger said the Nevada licensing application “was intended to benefit from federal online poker laws.”
