Poker Around the World

 

Ken Griffin Wins WSOP No. 45 ($1,000 No-Limit Hold'em)

Event no. 45, the $1,000 no-limit hold’em tournament, now belongs to Ken Griffin, a 34-year-old amateur from Houston, Texas who wasn’t even supposed to be at the WSOP at all this summer. He was supposed to be overseas in Afghanistan doing consulting work. His plans changed though, and he had to return home to Texas to help care for his ailing mother. He took a break from being a caretaker to make the quick trip to Vegas to take part in the $1,000 No Limit Hold’em WSOP event and now he is able to provide for his mom better than ever before.

Griffin defeated a field of 2,890 players to bank an impressive US$455,356 for his first-place prize.

Griffin said he plans on using his new found wealth to assist his mother, who was recently diagnosed with a serious illness.

“I’m going to take care of her and be closer to home,” he said. “I’m going to be transferring money into her account as soon as I get it. You know, she’s a senior, working-class, she’s going through chemotherapy and medicine is expensive. She lives paycheck to paycheck, so I’m really looking forward to helping her out.”

Congratulations to Griffin for his first bracelet, first final table appearance, and more importantly his first time ever cash in at the World Series of Poker that couldn’t have come at a better time!

Message from the CEO5 Reasons Why Online Poker Is Better than "Real Life" Poker

1. You don't need to do any organizing.
If you are having a poker game round at your house, there is a lot of organizing to be done. You need to make sure you have all the right equipment in place for the game - poker table, poker chips and cards as well as some sort of snacks and nibbles. You might be there for a long time so you need to provide some refreshments for your guests.

2. You don't need to rely on anybody else turning up for the poker game.
Most people have one or two friends who are unreliable. If you play poker online you don't need to rely on everyone turning up at the appointed hour for the home table game. When you play home poker there is always the dread that the phone is going to ring and somebody is going to call off at the last minute. You don't get that with online poker, you just turn up and play against whoever is there.

3. You can play for as long as you want to.
When you play poker on the internet it is up to you how long you play for, you don't need to wait until all your friends have had enough and want to go home. Or if you're the type of poker player who always wants to player on after everyone else is burnt out and ready for bed, you can do so on the internet.

4. You can play any time you choose.
When you are trying to organize a real life poker game, one of the biggest obstacles is getting all of your friends available at the same time. You might need to wait for weeks until they can make it on the same night, people are very busy nowadays and nobody seems to have much spare time any more. But you can have a game of poker Texas Holdem any time of the day or night on many internet poker sites, and games like Omaha and Stud poker are available most of the time too.

5. You can go and do something else instead.
If you want out of the game it is very hard when it is taking place in your house! You might be on a big losing streak or you might be tired or even bored with the company but if the poker game is in your house you'll need to be there until the end.
