PokerStars Week in Review and London Calling

I've been a guitar player for the better part of the last twenty years. I didn't think the callouses on the end of my fingers could get any thicker. This week proved me wrong. There's been a lot going on and my typing fingers are all but worn out.

First off, the news of the day.

London Calling

It's time for a change of scenery. While the online world is lush, flush, and plush, sometimes we need to take a look at some real felt. That's where PokerStars' World Cup of Poker comes in.

After today, the blog is in the air and headed for London to cover the semi-finals and finals of the WCP. Starting next week, Scotland will take on the defending champions from Costa Rica. The winner of that match will face the winner of the Norway vs. Austria match-up in the finals.

All next week, this blog will be brought to you from historic London, England. We'll have full coverage of the World Cup of Poker teams as they fight for world supremecy.

Note: Because the blog is hitting the road, there won't be a report on this Sunday's $350,000 guarantee. However, you should still be able to find the tournament results when you log on to your PokerStars game lobby.

PokerStars Week in Review

As I mentioned, there was a lot to talk and type about this week. If you missed any of it, get your clicking fingers ready.

  • Winner take all Sunday? Hardly.--This past weekend's Sunday night $350,000 Guarantee was a fun one to watch. The third place finisher made it ever more entertaining by offering to play winner-take-all with three players remaining.

  • PokerStars primes London--Before the arrival of the World Cup of Poker, two PokerStars players did quite well in the British Poker Open.

  • Wednesday whipped my tail--Let's put it this way. There was something in Wednesday's post for just about eveyerbody. If you care anything about PokerStars tournaments, the WSOP, or working for the best online poker site in the world, be sure to review this post.

  • Taking Tahoe--In this post, PokerStars player Jeffrey Lisandro took down the title in Lake Tahoe on the WSOP Circuit and the a father and son make it to the WSOP together.

    Indeed, it's been a big week. Now, it's bag packing time.

    Next stop: Jolly olde England.
