First successful poker TV channel: reality or fantasy?
First successful poker TV channel: reality or fantasy?

First 24/7 poker TV channel is going to start its work by the end of the year (perhaps, even in autumn). It is going to broadcast from Las Vegas, NV. Antonio Esfandiari and Daniel Negreanu are already among the broadcasters. What is going to be aired and does it all make sense?

The idea of full scale first 24/7 poker TV channel seems a little futuristic right now. We got used to watch poker TV shows and big series online reports in Internet. What can be broadcasted whole day long?

Well, that’s the question many people trying to answer. American TV channel Poker Central keeps lots of things in secret, but we can easily guess what’s what.

Cheap live tournaments: a new trend of modern poker
Cheap live tournaments: a new trend of modern poker

Inexpensive tournament series in various corners of our crazy planet – that’s the nearest future of poker. This summer there will take place $565 Colossus tournament with guaranteed $5,000,000 at WSOP, and just now Full Tilt Poker started sponsoring IPT.

For many years live poker was the rich and the daring’s lot. Even World Series is a striking example of it. For a long time there were no tournaments under $1,000 at WSOP schedule. Whoever heard of it: giving the bracelet for such nonsense!

So far many old-timers (hello, Mike Sexton!) are dissatisfied with the course World Series has taken. Their opinion, of course, can be understood. Even more: we really want to agree with it.

Global Poker Masters, Finals: Italy screwed Russia
Global Poker Masters, Finals: Italy screwed Russia

In defiance of all the predictions Team Italy has won the first Global Poker Masters cup, becoming the strongest poker team in the world. And in the Finals they were competing with Russia, not with the USA or Canada.

We wrote earlier about how the Day 1 of the team championship went on. Americans advanced straight to the semi-finals with confidence, British went off the distance and Ukrainian worked poker miracles.

The second day included few stages:

  • first – heads up matches, team vs. team (one country goes busted);
  • second – 6-max Sit-and-Go (two best teams go through to the finals);
  • third – finals, five simultaneously played heads ups (the game continues up to three winnings).

Global Poker Masters, Day 1: Russia and Ukraine made it to the second round
Global Poker Masters, Day 1: Russia and Ukraine made it to the second round

The exhausting first day of Global Poker Masters ended up with the triumphant performance of Team USA, elimination of Team UK and heroic Ukrainians’ run. Today we expect to see the heads up series, 6-max Sit'n'Go and the final battle of two strongest teams.

«The Global Poker Masters is not just another poker event or another Sit-and-Go. It is about skill», – these are GPI Index founder Alex Dreyfus’ words.

Before the competitions started, he had said a lot – and others too, actually. Basically it was all the same: poker must become an international sport; money shouldn’t be the primary concern and so on.

WPT Five Diamond & Alpha8: Millions of Bellagio
WPT Five Diamond & Alpha8: Millions of Bellagio

Two significant tournaments have ended in the Las-Vegas – WPT: Five Diamond World Poker Classic and Alpha8. There were millions of dollars at stake at both tournaments and the number of the distinguished players went beyond the limit.

Perhaps we will start from $10,400 WPT Five Diamond. The most interesting six-day tournament would be most likely considered as High Roller tournament on the European land, but bets are always higher in Vegas.

Almost 600 people (586 to be exact) anted the required buy-in – that’s a new record! It has beaten the result from the previous year for approximately 150 buy-ins, where 449 registrations took place.
