Poker Video Game “Lords of New York” Generates Indy Buzz at PAX
There’s no dearth of poker movies, web series or video games on the Internet but the vast majority have one unfortunate factor in common: They are all pretty awful. It’s a harsh statement perhaps but when you’ve watched Lucky You, Deal, Poker Night or played any of the hundreds of terrible poker video games you start to get a bit cynical. You can only re-watch Rounders so many times. That’s why upcoming indy game Lords of New York, which is themed around poker, is so exciting.

Traveling Through Time in Tallinn with 888Live Poker Series (Photos)
888poker likes to take its players to places they might never travel to otherwise. Tallinn is the capital of Estonia, the Northernmost of the three Baltic countries. It has a population of 450,000; equivalent to a third of the whole country’s population. During the 888Live event “Travel through Time” the players went on a trip to the Old Town and the Bay of Tallinn. Helsinki is only 80 km to the North if you take the ferry – or 800 km if you take the car all around the Gulf of Finland. Scroll down for pictures of a little poker gem hidden on the Northeastern rim of Europe.

Jivaro Brings User-Friendly Poker HUD to the People
There are plenty of Poker Heads-Up Displays (HUDs) on the market but upstart Jivaro is looking to disrupt the market with a unique emphasis on user-friendly software. For years the industry standards have been Hold’em Manager and Poker Tracker but those services are still overwhelming to new players due to their complexity and cost. Jivaro switches things up with a visually appealing theme and a business model that includes a free version. That’s the idea anyways. In the following post we take a closer look at what Jivaro brings to the table.

Daniel Negreanu’s Dramatic Final Day at the 2015 WSOP (Photos)

Daniel Negreanu’s Dramatic Final Day at the 2015 WSOP (Photos)
It was the river card heard ‘round the poker world. A fateful queen of hearts completed a straight for the unheralded Joe McKeehen and ended poker icon Daniel Negreanu’s incredible run in the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event. Negreanu, who missed making the November Nine by just two eliminations, collapsed to the floor out of shock. ESPN, Caesars, poker media members and poker fans everywhere were left wondering what might have been. It was a one-of-a-kind journey for the game’s most popular player (Phil Ivey might have an argument in 2009). This year the buzz around the tournament was taken to another level and, at long last, it looked like the November Nine concept was going to pay off in spades. It wasn’t to be. PokerListings was on hand every second of the World Series of Poker Main Event playdown and had our camera lenses pointed directly at Negreanu for the majority of the day. Here’s a collection of photos from one of the most memorable days in the history of the WSOP. Photos by Arthur Crowson, Matthew Showell and Alcanthang.

Bubble Bursts as 1,000 Players Lock Up $15,000+ (Photo Gallery)

Bubble Bursts as 1,000 Players Lock Up $15,000+ (Photo Gallery)
The World Series of Poker Main Event bubble is a stressful time. One ill-timed move at this point of the tournament could mean the difference between going home with $15,000 or absolutely nothing. This year hand-for-hand began with 1,002 players remaining. Because a thousand players were getting paid this year the bubble was spread out over both the Amazon Room and Brasilia. As is often the case with big money bubbles in poker tournaments players were told to stay at their tables to speed up the hand-for-hand process but there still a few nervous wanderers who simply couldn’t sit still and risked getting yelled at by a floor manager to scope out some of the other tables. People tend to approach the bubble in very different ways as a couple players started a backgammon game against each other while others got food. Almost everyone was on their phone either checking live updates or texting their friends and family. Strategy for the bubble also varies a fair amount too as pros are usually trying to steal blinds from the amateurs and the amateurs are doing everything they can to scrape out a min cash.

Jersey Watch 2015: Patrick Kane, Andrew Luck Most Popular at WSOP

Jersey Watch 2015: Patrick Kane, Andrew Luck Most Popular at WSOP
The World Series of Poker Main Event is the Super Bowl of Poker. The big difference is that everyone can play in the tournament -- so long as they have $10,000. There’s also no dress code. That allows players to rock whatever they want at the poker table whether it’s a T-shirt, tuxedo, spider-man costume or jersey. Jerseys are actually one of the most popular items of clothing at the WSOP, which makes sense considering the massive crossover between sports fans and poker. Every year hundreds of jersey-wearing poker players buy into various events at the WSOP. This year we decided to do a very unscientific study to get a rough idea of what jerseys are the most popular to wear in the biggest poker tournament of the year. Here’s what we learned:   Pretty much all pro sports in North America are represented with NFL, NBA, MLB, NCAA and NHL all accounted for. Of course poker is a global game and that means soccer jerseys from various leagues in Europe. Football jerseys were the most popular with Steelers, Seahawks and Broncos’ jerseys leading the way. As far as Individual jerseys were concerned Chicago Blackhawk Patrick Kane and Indianapolis Colt Andrew Luck were the most popular. Kane just won a third Stanley Cup with the Blackhawks so that’s understandable. Meanwhile Luck carried the Colts to a showdown with the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship. Check below for a massive gallery of the various jersey-wearing players in the field:
