Yong plays by half a million
Who dares not, wins not. Last week’s ultimate hand was without a doubt a huge pot played by Rob Yong and Alan Keating at Poker After Dark.
A whopping $467,300 was in the middle of the table, one of the biggest pots ever in the history of the show, coupled, of course, with a good sweat from the turn.
Apple limits gambling apps
After the border between free games and real money gambling is more and more blurred, Apple has removed with a simple measure any ambiguity about the nature of an app.
The decision was made to make all social games with gambling elements available only from the age of 17, no matter if you can bet money or not.
For some time now, there seems to be a lack of clarity on the part of the providers as to whether one is already subject to legal restrictions if one offers traditional gambling formats as a free version without the use of real money.
Already at the beginning of the year, the game developer Rockstar decided to exclude players from a variety of countries from the online poker rounds offered by Red Dead Redemption 2, although no real money can be set there.
PokerStars loses the Trafficspitze
One of the not entirely unexpected side effects of reducing the multitabling limit to just four tables is the replacement of PokerStars as the global leader in cash game traffic.
They had been in this top position for almost a decade but had to leave the sunny spot to the Asian IDNPoker Network.
Combining the global.com traffic at PokerStars with all the isolated local markets in which it operates, the world’s largest provider is still ahead.
Roulette round around $100,000
Last but not least, someone seems to have watched Jake Cody at the roulette tables and topped the action once again. How long he had any of his winnings not known, though.
