Major winnings at online poker tournaments

Online poker action continued to deliver major winning payouts this week as events in the PokerStars 2008 World Championship of Online Poker concluded.

Event 6 - the $530 buy-in NLHE online tournament at the WCOOP attracted a massive entry of 7,351 players for Sunday afternoon's start, all chasing a guaranteed $3 million prize pool which had swelled to $3 675 500 by the time the last registration was completed.

In hectic action, the field was down to the final 9 by late evening, with Russian player 'solovka' holding a significant chip lead over nearest opponent 'Calvin32' of the United States. And that's how it stayed for pretty much the rest of the 70 minute final table until they faced each other in the heads up, although there were times when the chiplead fluctuated between the two very competent players over some 200 hands of action in two hours.

In the end it was the American who prevailed, and Calvin32's main prize haul would have been the envy of many top land tournaments at $452 086 and some change. His uncompromising Russian opponent did well out of the day, too with a second place cheque for $306 169 whilst those big six figure numbers extended down to 5th place, where 'cassie13' collected a still-very-respectable payout of $132 318.

  • This poker Site is a real joke I think, The hand are so crappy everytime you win the FLOP with like 2 pairs, you WILL ALWAYS get bust by Turn and River 99% of the time. There's no way we can simply play poker we have to play again the soft, Turn and River every single hand. I remember a hand I had 2 solid pairs on flop, the other player raise all in with 1 pair, and of course at the river he hit another pair killing my original 2 pairs. no matter what you do and how you try POKER STAR will always bust you with amazing hand at the Turn and River. I also notice that ALL POKER SOFT work the same meaning that it got some Glitch that they refuse to FIX. #1 Re raise : IF you"re the LAST players that re raise and NO ONE can Re raise up back, 99% you will see your FLOP or Turn and River if you re raise at flop. Like a players with 2,3 RAISE ALL IN pre flop will most of the time see flop in is favor 223, A45 or some stuff like this JUST Google Poker Star Rigged. #2 Chips leader is always favor in the program, meaning that he will have possibility of re raising while other players can't re raise him back, The Stupid program will somehow FAVOR chips leader with any stupid hand. Overall these SOFTWARE that they use had some Glitch and no one fix it so Poker Star, 888 poker, Tilts poker, Facebook poker ALL USE same crappy program Pokerstar on there security site claim that there's 1,000,000,000,000,000 possible hand but went you play and win the flop it's frustrating to see that you will NEVER win your flop if another players re raise you, PokerStar will give the players that re raise is card Many you think how this is possible if there,s as they say Millions random CARD ! I've try and try and try make some profit on these site without success, not that I'm not good player it's just that you fight with a program that favor players that played with these re raise, All in pre flop, Chips leader etc They don't want to fix it money goes in easily still it's not cool I play over here at Gov poker site and the Random are WAY different because it's there own software.
