POKERSTARS PARTNERS WITH UFC
Over the weekend PokerStars announced our new sponsorship of UFC, the world's premier mixed martial arts organization, to become the UFC's first-ever 'Official Poker Partner'.
Fight fans will notice a PokerStars presence inside the world-famous Octagon later this month. That's when the rematch will finally take place, at UFC's final Pay-Per-View event of 2018, UFC® 232: JONES vs. GUSTAFSSON 2.
NEW GEAR FOR THE BOURNEMOUTH UNI POKER SOCIETY
"At the start of the year our Poker Society faced a dilemma," Thomas Upshall, committee member at Bournemouth Uni Poker Society told PokerStars Blog.
"We needed new equipment, as no new stuff had been purchased for a few years, but we also didn't have much money remaining in the account from the previous year. I thought it would be a good idea to email all the big poker sites, and ask if they would want to donate some branded decks of cards to the society.
WINNER OF £100 MILLION CHALLENGE REVEALED
Back in the summer PokerStars announced the £100 Million challenge. All you had to do was predict as many correct World Cup results as possible.
Well, PokerStars can now reveal the winner: 35-year-old Bristol resident John Rugman, who got more results right than thousands of others.
John Rugman: winner!
Rugman not only won $10,000, but received a $30K Platinum Pass. That means in just a week or so he'll be in the Bahamas playing in his first ever live poker tournament: the $25K buy-in PokerStars Players Championship.
Congratulations and good luck John!
