2006 July 03 Poker News, Events and Happenings

Thanks to the incredible speed and technology associated with the Internet, the World Series of Poker has been brought to the fans wherever they are around the globe. For those fans who could not make it to Las Vegas for the six weeks the WSOP is running, the ability to log on to the computer and read the news, reviews and even live updates is nothing short of a miracle. Even the normal weeks long wait for the broadcasting of the WSOP is shortened thanks to photos and videos posted daily, and for the first time ever ESPN will offer a live Pay-Per-View event covering the final table on August 10…

 

AUSSIE poker king Joe Hachem is in the money again after winning $345,000 in a Las Vegas tournament. The former Melbourne chiropractor, who won $10 million playing poker almost a year ago, yesterday outlasted 822 poker players to finish runner-up in the World Series of Poker event.

 

The American Red Cross is known for helping those in need, but in order to do so they depend on receiving a little help themselves in the form of badly needed funds. To raise money for the Cannonball Trail Chapter American Red Cross, the funds from a charity poker run will be collected during a weekend ride.

It is day three of the $2,000 buy in No Limit Hold ‘em event, and players will be taking their seats at 2pm Las Vegas time to decide who is going to be taking home over $800,000 as the winner of 2006 WSOP Event 6. The previous day a number of pros bit the dust, many to bad beats. Humberto Brenes is out, as is Cyndy Violette (lost to a straight card on the river), and Jen Harman (lost her pocket Aces to pocket Deuces when a third deuce hit the flop.) The action promises to be great if events of Day 2 have any influence: at one point fire alarms rang throughout the tournament room, and went completely ignored….

 

For poker players the ultimate dream is playing at the World Series of Poker, and these days the dream happens more often than ever before, thanks in part to the online qualifiers and satellites. The online poker rooms offer seats to the WSOP to those who win their qualifying tournaments, so when one site reneged on the deal it caused an uproar. The poker site CnR emailed the winners of a number of WSOP seats to tell them they couldn’t afford to pay off…
