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.

"PokerStars replied."

Merry Christmas to Bournemouth Uni Poker 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!
