What to do this weekend on PokerStars
This is sort of a weird feeling. It happens so rarely these days, it's off-putting to not have our team on the road somewhere reporting from a remote location on the comings and goings, slings and arrows, and winding paths to championships. But that's where we are. (Well, one of us is in Borneo right now, but you won't get any reporting on that.)
However, that doesn't mean, dear reader, that we don't have something for you to do for the next couple of days. In fact, we have a lot of suggestions.
Need some ideas for what to do over the weekend? Try any of these.
BE JAKE CODY
What's it like to be one of the UK's best poker players? What's it like to be a Team PokerStars Pro? What's it like to take Jake Cody's dog for a walk? You can learn all of these things and more when you check out the pilot of Jake Cody's new video blog.
SPIN & GO TO THE BAHAMAS
Earlier this week, you might have read the story of how Serge Pouliot managed to win a trip to the PokerStars Championship Bahamas Main Event for only ten dollars. He was not the only one, and he won't be the last.
The PokerStars Spin & Go Bahamas tourneys are running now, and you can get your trip and Main Event seat for just $10 if you spin it right.
LISTEN TO EPT NOT LIVE
It's time for episode #67 of the EPT Not Live podcast. This week, Stapes and Hartigan talk to 2010 PCA finalist Ryan D'Angelo. Then Stapes tests his "Top Gear" trivia in a round of Superfan vs. Stapes.
You can check out the episode below.
BEAT THE CLOCK
If you'd like to try something even faster than that, you can always try the new PokerStars Beat the Clock tourneys. The tourneys last just five minutes, and if you have chips at the end of that time, you make money. Simple as that.
CATCH UP ON WHAT YOU MISSED
If you've been hiding under a rock (and frankly, no one would blame you if you had been), you might have missed some of our other coverage this week.
Our team in Macau reported David Peters won the Asia Championship of Poker Macau High Roller for $629,868. Meanwhile, Celina Lin became the first person to win two ACOP Spadies after beating Australian Edison Nguyen heads up for the $61,294 in the Deepstack Championship. Finally Jack En-ching Wu won the Asia Player of the Year title.
Other news, bits, and bobs:
And, finally, we're a week or two removed from the PokerStars Festival in New Jersey, but if you missed it and want to see what it looked like, you can check it out below.
Have a good weekend, everyone.
