The Poker player Kevin Roster is dead

The poker player who made people aware of a rare form of cancer at the last WSOP of his life is no longer with us.

Kevin Roster has died

In the beginning, very sad news for the poker community. Kevin Roster, who has put a rare form of cancer on people’s radar at the WSOP this year, is no longer with us.

It was very important to Roster that he could end his life self-determined and on his terms, without being carried away by the disease. He has now put this plan into practice. Since 2016, it has been possible for fatally ill people in California to leave life under medical supervision.

The poker community and world have left Kevin Roster with a final message in which he also makes suggestions for all those who want to donate something in his name.

Rest in peace, Kevin.

Keep your diary free

When the WSOP is over, there’s always a doldrums in the annual tournament calendar. But rescue always comes with the online version of the World Cup in the form of the WCOOP at PokerStars.

The exact tournament schedule is not yet available, but this time the festival will take place from September 5th to 25th. In addition to the usual $5,200 Main Event, there will also be a smaller Main Event this time, but the buy-in for this tournament has not yet been announced.

The first online qualifiers will start on August 19th.

Game selection soon back on Stars?

Just after getting used to the blind lobby at PokerStars, there is a chance that the seat selection might return.

New software and game features are always tested in the Italian market before being released globally. As poker fuse reported this week, the seat selection at the €5/€10 tables is now back for testing.

Time will tell whether the old form of Game selection, which was changed last year on all PokerStars platforms, will be reintroduced on a global scale.

Borgata wants Iveys WSOP winnings

One of the reasons why Phil Ivey is only rarely seen in the global tournament circus has recently become clear: The Borgata has filed court documents to confiscate Ivey’s WSOP winnings.

According to flushdraw.net, the casino’s attorneys have submitted additional requests to the attorneys to withhold Phil Ivey’s WSOP winnings from this year to settle the $10,344,518 debt.

Ivey made it into the WSOP four times this year for a total of $133,215. However, he may have raised a similar amount or even more for the due buy-ins in Vegas. So Phil Hellmuth is likely to keep his bracelet record for quite some time.
