The tournament will take place on July 19th at 15:05ET, players can buy in for this event for only $5 or 1000 Full Tilt Points and compete for a share of a $250,000 guaranteed with $250,000 added prize pool. Players can also get entries to this event by playing the online satellites available on the site and starting for as little as 30 cents or 50 Full Tilt Points.

Team Full Tilt pros and WSOP bracelet winners Howard Lederer, Chris Ferguson and Phil Ivey have already confirmed they will take part in the event, offering players the chance to sit down at this historic tournament and play with some of the best high stakes and tournament pros in the world.

“By extending the limits of what is possible in online poker tournaments, Full Tilt Poker will allow players to compete for a big payout without the big buy-in,” said Team Full Tilt member Howard Lederer.

This poker website was examined after some of the poker players on the page said that some person was dishonestly winning a large amount of cash. Todd Witteles was a vital player in this inquiry, according to Witteles; he was losing large amounts of cash to the exact same poker player. Witteles claimed that this player was raising against very good cards, most players would have guessed he was basically handing over his money, but he was incredibly earning a great deal of cash.

Witteles was in the right with his statements, much later it was exposed that a poker player with knowledge of the site was able to watch any poker player’s poker hole cards. At first glance, Absolute Poker claimed that there were no faults with the site or the poker player. After numerous players presented the site with accusations, the Texas Hold’em page investigated further into the cheating problem and discovered wrongdoing.

By Jan. of 2008, the Kahnawake Gaming Commision came across what the poker players and the Texas Hold’em poker site had supposed all along. The result of the investigation was that, there was a worker who had attacked the Texas Hold’em poker webpage’s security system and was competing illegally for roughly a month and a half. The study verified that the Texas Hold’em site had not gained from the dishonest transactions whatsoever, and was in no way involved.

These crimes are further confirmation that there needs to be more laws in regards to Texas Hold’em poker sites. The US government ought to license and legalize the internet Texas Hold’em poker industry to guard these honest consumers. These rules would also regulate the access to these pages by kids, which is turning into another fear recently.

Is it Possible to Make Money by Playing Texas Hold’em Tournaments?

Posted under poker & poker tips & texas hold'em strategy

jennifer harman
Take a minute to imagine if you were to talk to any ordinary guy or girl off the street about online Texas Hold’em, they almost certainly wouldn’t deem Texas Hold’em poker to be a game of practice, planning, or close examination. More than likely when you point out online Texas Hold’em with them, they would in all probability picture some friends lounging around their kitchen table talking and smoking cigars. They also may consider poker to be a game of pure luck and not ability, more similar to a game of blackjack and not chess, for instance.

So the big question mark there is: “Could I possibly make a living by playing poker?”. It may seem strange but, it is possible to make a profit from poker. More than a few individuals not only make a profit by playing Texas Hold’em poker, but also make enough to live by competing in Texas Hold’em. The main issue you have to remember about online poker is that while you can play in a LV casino, next to craps tables and slots; in Texas Hold’em poker you are not playing against the house but against other Texas Hold’em poker contestants. Hence, in reality, you are risking your money against other poker players in a match of aptitude as opposed to a game of fate.

You could be saying to yourself: “Doesn’t it pay to be lucky?” Naturally in Texas Hold’em poker, not a soul has any idea which cards will be dealt. That doesn’t suggest that one cannot play Texas Hold’em with a reliable quantity of pre-tournament data. One thing that is important to remember in online Texas Hold’em is that numbers can be your best friend. Statistics performs a vital role in the game of Texas Hold’em. Not forgetting, that even if you become a little lucky every once in while the figures always have a way of humbling a poker player.

Always remember that LV casino table games like Texas Hold’em poker where you are actually contending versus other actual contenders CAN be won. You will find that the more you play the game of poker, you will discover that it is more of game of skill as opposed to just genuine fate.
