CD Poker Tournament Tracker
Well, all eyes in the online poker news as the tournament community have certainly been peeled on the November Nine. The World Series of Poker is finally coming down to these always-fascinating players, which include both cool cucumbers and hotheads. There will be no lack of excitement to come, given the flood of controversy that has already erupted on and off the tables.
What is particularly interesting this year is the number of players who are intimately associated with online poker sites. Certainly the top poker sites always want to get endorsements from the celebrities of the game, but we are well used to seeing most, if not all of the players battling online at one time or another, sometimes with each other and even more often with regular online poker room customers. In what other sport does this level of popular involvement happen?
One thing is for sure, if you spend any amount of time on PokerStars.com, you could very well run into Ivan Demidov, Peter Eastgate, Dennis Phillips, David “Chino” Rheem, Ylon Schwartz, and/or Darus Suharto. And if your chosen destination is FullTiltPoker.com, Kelly Kim, Scott Montgomery, Craig Marquis may be your opponents.
However, the best poker players are nothing if not tricky, so going to look for them may be the surest way of not finding them. Our sources show that plenty of pro players, on and off the clock, also compete regularly at CakePoker.com, CarbonPoker.com, and UltimateBet.com. Don’t look for telltale nicknames, either — a careful eye on playing style is the only way to truly tell the masters from the wanna-be’s.
As we all take a huge collective breath, poker players return to the online poker rooms — the serious pros to keep their skills sharp and the money rolling in, and the casual amateurs for much-needed practice on the free online games and the chance of bringing home ever-increasing winnings. By this time next year, which members of the two groups will have traded places?
