Kudos to PokerStars for continuing to advocate for increased women’s involvement in poker. They’ve just announced a second ladies-exclusive initiative giving the poker community the opportunity to nominate inspiring, impactful women for the chance to win a Platinum Pass to the 2020 PSPC in Barcelona.
It’s a promotion guaranteed to stir positivity and highlight the great women who promote the game we love. Half a dozen such women will be gathered together at a future live event for a Sit N’ Go to determine which lucky lady will get the Pass.
While Santa’s all about the ho-ho-ho, PokerStars ambassador Chris Moneymaker is all go-go-go, hosting tournaments worldwide on Moneymaker’s Road to PSPC. From Russia, to the US, to Ireland, to the UK, the Poker Hall of Famer has been giving out coveted Platinum Passes across the globe to winners of his namesake events. Here’s a recap of the winners, as well as some upcoming stops on the tour.
Over my time at the 2019 PSPC in the Bahamas, I took a number of pictures to help me remember the great times I had there. I’ve curated them through multiple Tweets and pictures and have also published a video highlight clip to help capture what the entire experience was like.
I hope you enjoy experiencing the trip “through my eyes” and that it’ll perhaps convince you that making your way to the Bahamas next January is a worthwhile proposition.
An exclusive, hour-long video interview with PokerStars’ Marketing Director Eric Hollreiser. For the first time ever, he publicly opens up about his own accomplished career prior to joining The Stars Group, talks about what things were like internally at PokerStars in the wake of Black Friday, and shares a behind-the-scenes look at what working at the company is like on a day-to-day basis as well as at the major live events it stages around the world.
Eric also reflects on the recently completed PokerStars Players Championship, and shares his honest thoughts on what else we can expect from him and the world’s largest poker site moving forward. Eric rarely gives interviews, and has never before done an hour-long on-the-record video, so I hope you enjoy this special look at someone who personifies the heart and soul of what PokerStars stands for.
An interview with UFC ring announcer extraordinaire Bruce Buffer, which took place at the Atlantis Hotel and Resort in the Bahamas in January 2019.
We spoke about what he loves most about poker, his favorite poker variants, and what deep tournament runs mean to him. We also got his thoughts on how the huge UFC-PokerStars partnership deal benefits fans of both mega-brands.
Sometimes life hands you lemons and it’s your challenge to make lemonade.
This article relates the story of how I ended up interviewing former NBA champion Paul Pierce twice at the PokerStars Players Championship in the Bahamas.
Included is a short 2-minute clip, but there’s a special reason as to why it’s so brief. The STORY behind this interview is what this blog post is really all about.
