June’s Double Dip Winners

June’s first leg of SunPoker’s $15,000 "Santa's Double Dip" Cash Race ended on the 15th with a photo finish!

On Tier 2 some old school boys made their way back on e leader board as some new blood gave them a real run for the win. SunPoker’s old time player VinoRos*** found himself being serious challenged for 15 days by new comers uliveinacara*** and AccioCh*** but with just 2 days left in the race, VinoRos*** dedicated extra time to the game and came out victorious for the first leg in June. However, something tells me that the new comers and second place finisher mei*** aren’t going to make it any easier on him in June’s 2nd leg.

On Tier 1 ICwatUdidTh*** maintained his top position throughout the entire leg, showing other new comers; JP*** (finishing 2nd) and upsi12*** (finishing 3rd) that the Double Dip Race is indeed a challenge of stamina and skill competing for the top position.

Congratulations to all 40 winners on both Tiers…we hope you enjoy the extra cash this season!

ElkY wins first WSOP bracelet completes Triple Crown

Cross another big-time poker pro off of the list of “Best poker player without a bracelet” as Bertrand “ElkY” Grosspellier took home his first WSOP bracelet in the $10k Seven-Card-Stud Championship at the 2011 World Series of Poker. In the process ElkY became the fourth member of poker’s Triple Crown club, joining Gavin Griffin, Roland de Wolfe, and Jake Cody (who completed the Triple Crown earlier in the 2011 WSOP) in the very exclusive club.

ElkY joins Jake Cody, Eugene Katchalov, Jason Somerville (who won the $1k NLHE tournament yesterday), and Allen Bari as first-time WSOP bracelet winners in 2011.

ElkY admitted that prior to this tournament he had never played Stud Poker –which seems to be a theme at the 2011 WSOP; Matt Perrins anyone— “As my friend pushed me to play he said I had a really good memory for the cards so I can analyze the cards and the combination… I think I caught up quickly and all the poker games are all similar. It’s about reading your opponents and adapting to the situation. Of course I have a lack of experience but sometimes I think it (helped) me because I was playing really aggressive and getting my opponents to fold in some spots where they’re not supposed to fold.”

Message from the CEOPoker Discipline

Poker discipline is something that all players should have as one of their main assets. If your discipline is poor, you should make it your highest priority to improve it. As a poker player, you will know that there are few things in life as exciting as landing a great looking starting hand in Texas Hold’em. Being dealt a good starting hand puts you in command right away and you feel excited about the possibility that you will go on and win the pot.

But unfortunately this excitement is probably responsible for more losing hands and leaving players with empty chip stacks than almost anything else in the game of poker.

Excitement at a poker table is normally a bad thing, when players get excited they usually make bad decisions, they allow their normal level of poker discipline to drop and make crazy, irrational moves that can cost a big pot or, worse still, their whole chip stack.

Discipline is all about making decisions and sticking to them. If you are a tight player, you need to decide what hands you will play and have the self discipline not to waver from your decision. The most important part of that is knowing when to lay your cards down, especially when they look very tempting and you are itching to stay in the hand to see what happens.

It's as old as the hills but it's still as true today as it ever was; you need to know when to fold 'em. Even if you have a hand that looks like a monster, it can always be beaten and the bigger and better the starting hand, the harder it is to fold.

Dangerous starting hands that cause a lot of people to lose their poker discipline and cost them money are those such as A-10, A-9 or worse, Q-J, K-10. If you catch one of those in early position (that is when you are at the start of the betting) you should almost always fold them, there are just too many hands that can beat you.

Although it's probably about the hardest to master, poker discipline is one of the key skills that marks out great poker players and sets them apart from the rest of the pack, so decide on your strategy and stick to it.
