Here's a recap of the Poker Stars tournaments this weekend Last weekend was the first one of the 2011 WSOP. While most of the heavy hitters were in Las Vegas, that didn’t mean the weekend online guarantees would not see their fair share of “name” competitors.

Here's a summary of the latest poker news Despite his recent losses, Gus Hansen is still one of the biggest overall winners of 2011. Lately though, his good luck seems to have vanished, as he struggles along trying to consolidate his position atop the 2011 leader board.

During the first half of May 2011 both Sorel Mizzi, Ilari Shamies and Vmnielsen had great winning streaks on the online felt. Last week, the high stakes online poker action showed signs of recovering from the lull it had been forced into by the Black Friday events. During the mid-week, the action flared up at PokerStars, which in itself was a bit unusual and possibly a sign of things to come, as the cash game action had always been hotter at Full Tilt Poker. Vmnielsen was at the center of the action Read more [...]

Here's a recap of the high stakes poker action since Black Friday where FBI seized Full Tilt, Poker Stars and absolute poker The toll that Black Friday has taken on the online poker industry becomes more and more obvious every week.

There was Read more [...]

High stake poker action during the third week of March Gus Hansen’s losing days are now a distant memory both for him and for the railbirds who follow his every move at Full Tilt Poker.
