NEW EUROPEAN POKER TOUR SCHEDULE ANNOUNCED
2015-05-05

Pokerstars has announced six stops for the forthcoming 12th season of its European Poker Tour kicking off with the EPTs popular poker festival in Barcelona in August.

Six destinations have been confirmed so far, with a seventh to be determined for March. All those confirmed will run in conjunction with Pokerstars national and regional live tours:

EPT Barcelona: August 19-30, 2015

EPT Malta: October 21-31, 2015

EPT Prague: December 6-16, 2015

Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure: January 6-14, 2016

EPT Dublin: February 10-20, 2016

EPT Grand Final: April 26-May 6, 2016

EPT Barcelona, which kicks things off in August, is always the most popular stop on the tour and has been a highlight since Season 1. The festival consistently breaks records, with ever-increasing numbers for both players and scheduled events. As in previous years, EPT Barcelona will be held in conjunction with the national Estrellas Poker Tour and satellites will be launched on PokerStars in less than a week - on May 10.

Many fans will welcome the EPTs return after an eight-season gap to Dublin. The Irish capital has an enthusiastic poker community and was one of the first stops on the European Poker Tour back in October 2004.

The Season 12 EPT Dublin event will be held jointly with the UK & Ireland Poker Tour next year (February 10-20) at the historic Royal Dublin Society venue, just minutes away from the heart of Dublin City.

The EPT will also be heading back to Malta for a joint Italian Poker Tour/EPT festival after its successful debut there last month. Nearly 2,500 players from 73 countries competed in 69 events during the festival and more than Euro 18.5 million was awarded in prize money (see previous InfoPowa report).

Prague in the Czech Republic will again host the EPT in December, and the Tour moves to the Bahamas in January for the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.

The season finale will again be held in Monaco, starting April 26, 2016.

EPT President Edgar Stuchly said Tuesday: Right from the stunning EPT100 celebrations in Barcelona last August to the eleventh EPT Grand Final here in Monaco, this has truly been a spectacular season, so we are understandably very excited about the forthcoming Season 12. In Europe-based events alone we will have awarded more than Euro 100 million in prize money for the first time in the EPTs history, with more than 60,000 tournament entries.

We will continue to take EPT to new locations and new audiences, and are constantly reviewing our events to ensure the tour stays fresh and exciting."



SBOBET OPTS OUT OF BITISH MARKET
2014-09-06

Isle of Man-based but mainly Apuestas Deportivas Online Bingo Online NFL Betting Asian-facing online sportsbook SBObet has followed the Mansion group in opting out of the UK online gambling market due to the forthcoming regulatory point-of-consumption regime.

Like Mansion, SBObet has communicated with its British players, advising them it will close its virtual doors September 15.

The company made no bones about the reasons for its decision, saying it was unfortunately a direct consequence of the new gambling laws in the UK due for implementation on October 1, but assured punters that all obligations would be honoured, and that they would have until the end of September to withdraw any positive account balances in full.

Those who do not do so will be refunded anyway as the company shuts down their accounts.

Another operator, 12Bet, appears to be splitting its operations in the UK market, with the sportsbook side closing out Brit punters, but the online casino division seeking licensing and continuing to operate in the UK market.

Both SBObet and 12bet sportsbooks have sponsorship agreements with British football clubs, and the position remains unclear on how this will be accommodated, given that the new licensing requirements preclude unlicensed operators from any form of promotion or advertising in the UK market.

Even the Gambling Commission appears to be unsure on this point, opining earlier this year that only the courts can deliver a specific decision.



SOUTH AFRICAN WINS TIGER WOODS CHARITY POKER MATCH
2014-05-22

A long list of celebrities turned out for the Tiger Woods Poker Night charity event at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas this week, including the international golf star himself, Kunal Nayyar, who plays Raj on The Big Bang Theory TV show; Dallas Mavericks owner and star of ABCs Shark Tank Mark Cuban; The Bachelor host Chris Harrison; the WPTs Mike Sexton and Vince Van Patten; and poker aces Doyle Brunson, Daniel Negreanu and Antonio Esfandiari.

Phil Hellmuth was master of ceremonies at the event, which attracted 50 entries who anted up $10,000 apiece for the buy-in.

Kinesh Pather, a South African amateur player who finished the recent $100,000 buy-in Alpha8 Johannesburg competition earlier this year as runner up to Daniel "Jungleman" Cates, again displayed an impressive poker talent by winning the event and donating his prize to the Tiger Woods Foundation.

The great golfer was in attendance and played in the event, although he did not make the final table.

Tiger Poker Night was a part of Tiger Jam, which started in 1998 and has raised more than $14 million for the Tiger Woods Foundation.

Online gaming is a train wreck waiting to happen and I think to have a situation where people can sit at home and gamble, I think its a very dangerous situation, Ainsworth said.
