Sharing is caring!


The QQWIN99 Millions Cruise is set to sail once again, with the sixth edition of the tournament announced for 3rd-10th May 2008. Next year the PPM VI will cruise the high seas of the Mediterranean. The cruise will leave from Venice, Italy, and stops off in Greece, Turkey and Croatia before turning back to historic Venice.

The PPM tournament will be a $8,200 buy-in No Limit Hold’em event which will also be recorded for worldwide broadcast. First prize is $1,000,000 USD; previous winners of past PPM Cruise tournaments include: Kathy Liebert, Howard Lederer, Erick Lindgren and Michael Gracz.

“The Million has a lot of history and it is great to welcome it back in 2008.”

U.S. Poker Player Challenge

This is my favorite time of year because this is the only time of the year when my favorite fictional character gets any honest acknowledgment by the media.

I mean who doesn’t love a guy who makes the spirit of the holidays evident to everyone?

Now to all the poker players in the United States, it is well past time that you gave someone a lump of coal in their stocking; so take a look at the following list, if you do not find the name of your Congressperson on that list, then it is well past time to act.

Just click the link below the list and take five minutes to get your poker rights restored.

Oh and I guess if your representative is on the list, you could write them a nice note of thanks but that is so not in my nature.

LIST: 45 co-sponsors of the Frank Bill to repeal the Unlawful Internet Gaming Enforcement Act, these are the good guys:

WSOP Chip Reese Trophy

Future winners of the $50,000 buy-in event at the World Series of Poker – currently the HORSE World Championship – will receive a trophy named after the late David “Chip” Reese, according to Jeffrey Pollack, Commissioner of the World Series of Poker.

“A true gentleman and the youngest person admitted to the Poker Hall of Fame, Chip Reese was recognized by his peers as the most successful player in the biggest mixed cash games of all time.”

Pollack went on to say:

“He was also a great tournament player with three WSOP bracelets, including one for his historic victory in the inaugural $50,000 buy-in HORSE tournament in 2006. As a tribute to this great player who embodied the very best of our game, next year’s $50,000 HORSE World Championship will be played in Chip’s honor and memory and the winner will receive the ‘David “Chip” Reese Award,’ as well as a WSOP bracelet, to commemorate their achievement.”

Suggestions for this tribute popped on on several poker forums last week and the WSOP staff jumped of those ideas to make an excellent and timely decision.
