There were 249 entries on the first day and about 700 entries across all categories. On the first day Paul Skipper won maximum chips and it was a day that was packed with action. About 438500 chips were bagged on the first day with him. However, he had strong competition as well. Competitors like Steve Watts, Reza Fazeli and Charles Akadiri also summed up high numbers. The final day plays promised to be exciting for day 2.

About 43 players survived by Day 1c. Hence, about 108 players only made it on the first day. There were several pro players who missed the boat such as Sin Menis Melin, Paul Romain and Chris Moorman. There were other players who were more fortunate in order to avoid being eliminated. Skipper on the other hand, remained in a comfortable position throughout. He was not the only player in a comfortable position. Andy Wool took on a pre flop position with a standard hand. He bet about 12000 into a pot of 16000. Reza was also able to double up at the right moment. He was able to use his aces against the eights of Svetlin Ivano’s. Fazeli was able to reach a level of 125000.

Chip stealing case: former poker dealer sentenced

A poker dealer who attempted skimming little amounts of the games he dealt in 2015 has been sentenced by a court in Cleveland. Randall White, who dealt poker games at the Horseshoe Cleveland, was given an 18 months probation sentence as well as two-hundred-fifty hours of community work for stealing a suggested $711 from the tables.

White faced up to 6 years behind the bars on felony gambling cases, a punishment he could be hit with if he fails to fulfill the conditions of his probation.
White admitted to the presiding judge that he stole the money in hopes of raising some extra cash to help cover his daughter’s legal fees. Perhaps in hopes of staying unnoticed, he tried taking the money in $5 and $10 increments and putting the chips in with the rest of his tips.
His gambit evidently broke down as he was caught. A tale posted on a leading website in July, last year, suggested that a dealer at Horseshoe had been caught while stealing chips as well as sliding them into his tip jar.

The league of iNinja Poker began at Canterbury Park, Shakopee, Minnesota last August. There were three leagues that one can choose from that were holding three different price points as well as seats. It also had six main event seats and the event became a success in the opening season. The very first iNinja Poker Main Event hosted by iNinja had a $100,000 guarantee with a $675 buy-in.  It brought a total of 316 registrations which the organizers hope to increase when the next event with a $100, 000 guarantees starts from July 16 at Canterbury Park.
Poker league ideas are not new to the poker world and so are the satellites to the WSOP, hence the association of the two in a huge scale in the first year, particularly a new league in its first is unparalleled.
