PokerStars Carnaval in Southern Europe

Players on the PokerStars Southern Europe platform there can expect more than 270 events with buy-ins starting at just €5. The entire series guarantees more than €10 million for players in France, Spain, and Portugal.

The €250 Main Event highlights the series on March 7 with €500,000 guaranteed. The €50 Phase Event also should interest players with a guarantee of €150,000.

A phase tournament is a bit different than a traditional tournament with satellite entries. Phase tournament allowed players to get in qualifying “phases” to qualify for the main tournament.

Unlike a satellite tournament, players who advance actually can carry their ship stack over to the target event.

Beyond the Main Event, the €10 Classic Carnaval Special PKO is planned for Feb. 21 with €300,000 guaranteed. This event becomes the largest €10 event ever in Southern Europe.

Players can win entry to the series through satellites starting at €0.50. Main Event entries can also be won in €12.50 Spin & Go’s. A Depositor Freeroll on March 6 also awards €25,000 worth of Main Event tickets. Here’s a look at the complete schedule.

PokerStars Carnival Series in Italy

At PokerStars Italy, the Carnival Series has over €5 million guaranteed across 105 events. The Main Event takes place on March 7 with a €500,000 guarantee.

Players can win entry into that event through €12.50 Spin & Go’s. Italian players can also take advantage of a €25,000 Depositor Freeroll on March 6.

Those winners also earn a Main Event entry.The schedule also includes several events in the progressive knockout (PKO) format.

In this type of bounty tournament, players only win a portion of an opponent’s bounty. A portion of that is also added to the winning player’s bounty.

That means each player’s bounty can increase throughout the tournament. This adds an interesting twist to bounty tournaments and means more bounty loot the deeper a player goes.

Here’s a look at the complete schedule.

PokerStars Shapes Up Spin & Go Experience By Adding Tetris

The classic game of Tetris is coming to

The classic game of Tetris is coming to PokerStars. The site recently announced the launch of a new twist on its Spin & Go tournaments involving the classic video game.

Players will find all the frantic action of a game of Tetris and the thrill of Spin & Go’s in one epic experience. The new promotion comes with more than $1.5 million in prizes.

Stacking blocks and big bucks at PokerStars

The Tetris + Spin & Go tournaments run from Feb. 15 to March 28. Players can participate for a share of $33,000 in daily leaderboard prizes.

To participate, players can simply opt in to the Tetris + Spin & Go leaderboard at each buy-in level they desire. Players can get in on as many leaderboards as they want.

The objective is to earn points and post as high a score as possible on the daily leaderboards. How do the Tetris games work?

Players accumulate points by winning line clears from playing Tetris + Spin & Go’s. Every five lines cleared increases a competitor’s level.

The higher the level, the more points players receive for clearing lines and the higher their score will be.

Other PokerStars prizes on the line

Even those who don’t notch a win in a Tetris Spin & Go have something to look forward to. For every game players don’t win, the Tetris playing field begins filling up.

Players can track the status of their playing field at the table with scores posted daily. Additional prizes are also up for grabs for those who don’t make the leaderboard payouts. 

The top 500 players in each leaderboard earn entry into an exclusive daily prize draw. That includes $5,000 in prizes up for grabs every day.

Another medium for Tetris

PokerStars becomes just another medium to feature Tetris. The game was created by Russian software engineer Alexey Pajitnov in 1984.

Tetris has been featured on Nintendo video game systems as well as other devices. The game involves a player manipulating various shapes as they descend down the screen (this area is also known as the “matrix” or field”).

These shapes are fit together to complete lines across the screen, which are then eliminated. The gameplay is simple but takes strategy and has attracted fans around the world.

The game has sold more than 200 million copies – 70 million physical copies and more than 130 million downloads.

What might PokerStars get out of this unique partnership? The Tetris link again shows how online operators are reaching out to players beyond the traditional poker market. That includes players more accustomed to gaming on a mobile device.

The company also made news recently by signing international soccer star Neymar. Gaming fans who enjoy Tetris now may find a unique way to combine the game with some poker.

PokerStars Celebrates International Bluff Day on Feb. 7 – No Bluffing

PokerStars has designated Sunday, Feb. 7, as “International Bluff Day” to celebrate all things bluffing.

The bluff is a critical part of poker – whether live in the online game. Some might say it’s what makes poker so unique – the ability to win with an inferior hand.

What poker fan could forget Chris Moneymaker’s “bluff of the century” in the 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event? With K♠7♥ and no pair on a board of 9♠2♦6♠8♠, Moneymaker made a huge raise with Sammy Farha holding Q♠9♥.

Moneymaker missed his straight and flush draws when the 3♥ fell on the river Rather than slow down, he made a bold move – an all-in bluff. Farha ultimately folded and Moneymaker would go on to make poker history.

In the spirit of the bluff, PokerStars has designated Sunday, Feb. 7, as “International Bluff Day.” The hoopla is meant to celebrate all things bluffing and the site has plenty of fun in the works.

What’s planned for PokerStars Bluff Day?

Why was Feb. 7 picked as the day to celebrate Bluff Day? Because 7-2 is the worst hand in poker, and also a specific date on the calendar, Feb. 7.

American players may note that date as 2/7, but the point is the same. The day seemed appropriate to get bullish on bluffing.

“You may get a bad hand like 7-2, but it’s up to you what you do with it,” PokerStars noted in a news release announcing the promotion. “You can make that bad hand, a great hand. It’s the way you play that makes a difference. And bluffing sits at the heart of this.”

“Bluffing can be applied to many aspects of our lives outside of poker and it happens in a variety of different situations, and the talent to successfully execute a bluff is respected.

To celebrate this fine art, PokerStars is dedicating the day to the bluff. No doubt every poker player has bluffed at some point – whether successful or not.

And PokerStars is inviting players to share their stories and experiences about their own epic bluffs. Players can simply use the hashtag #internationalbluffday to provide some light-hearted tales for others to read.

Additionally, the PokerStars social media channels (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook) will host videos and activities to celebrate the occasion.

A look at some amazing poker bluffs

To commemorate the day, PokerStars has even put together a special video with some great bluffs. Some of those flexing their bluffing muscles include poker superstars Liv Boeree and Daniel Negreanu.

The top bluff includes a seven-bet with KJ♥. It’s quite an assortment of rounder fearlessness.

As if that weren’t enough, the PokerStars creative team also got in the act. The animated “Legend of the Bluff” offers a unique take on the beginnings of this poker concept.

Three more great poker bluffs to check out

Moneymaker’s Main Event bluff may be the best-known in poker. However, plenty of other big card-playing fake-outs have left victims frustrated. Here are a look at a few more.

1 – Bluffing Ivey

In the 2000s, Brad Booth was a regular in televised poker shows like High Stakes Poker and Poker After Dark. Booth had no problem moving some chips around the table.

That includes this amazing bluff against poker star Phil Ivey. Amazingly, his 24♠ got the job done and Ivey got rid of his pocket Kings.

2 – Miss Finland earns her crown

The Shark Cage welcomed Miss Finland to the pool and she ran an unexpected huge bluff. Her opponent eventually folded a monster hand. Not only did the victim lose the hand, but also got sent to solitary confinement.

 

3 – Scott Seiver ships it

Longtime pro Scott Seiver is no stranger to raking big pots. In this hand from the WSOP Big One for One Drop, he takes a massive pot from Marvin Reinkemeier.

This comes with an all-in shove and Reinkemeier folding Aces.

Low stakes, big money payouts at PokerStars

The MicroMillions Marathon promises a blitz of action for online poker players for four straight days. Players will find big prizes for small stakes.

Buy-ins range from $1.10 to $11 with qualifiers starting at just $0.11. There are plenty of events for every taste and bankroll.

A few of the tournament styles include: Six-Max, Turbo, Zoom, Progressive Knockout, Bubble Rush, Win the Button, Deepstacks, Heads-up, and more.

For those new to some of these, Bubble Rush is a fast-paced tournament designed to get players into the money in an hour. After that the hyper turbo format slows down and plays like a traditional tournament.

A Progressive Knockout (PKO) is a bounty tournament with some interesting twists. When a player knocks out another, part of that player’s bounty is added to the winning player’s bounty. The events make for some fun, interesting dynamics as player’s bounty increases throughout the tournament.

In a Win the Button tournament, the player who wins the pot also gets the dealer button.

Players looking for more than just Texas Hold’em are also in luck. Some of the games featured include Pot Limit Omaha, Fusion, Omaha Hi/Lo, and more.

For those new to Fusion, this is a game PokerStars introduced in 2019. The games combined Hold’em and Omaha. Players are dealt two cards and play is like Hold’em before the flop.

After that, players receive another card on the flop and then another on the turn. Players have plenty of options in this MicroMillions series.

Valentine’s Day will be a big deal this year for PokerStars players. The site is showing some love on Feb. 14 to MicroMillions players.

Hank Azaria Gathers Celebrity Friends for New PokerStars Home Game Charity Series

In conjunction with PokerStars, actor and poker player Hank Azaria debuted the new Hank’s Home Game series on the site’s YouTube channel.

Online poker once again became home to a charity celebrity poker game on Sunday. In conjunction with PokerStars, actor and poker player Hank Azaria debuted the new Hank’s Home Game series on the site’s YouTube channel.

The star-studded game will regularly feature six celebrities interacting and competing on camera. Players can win their share of a $50,000 donation to the charities closest to their hearts.

“Hank’s Home Game is all about great company and good conversation,” Azaria said in a news release. “While we hope our home game will keep everyone entertained during testing times, it has also been a chance to continue raising money for charity.

“I am delighted that I have been able to work with PokerStars on this fun series, and I hope people enjoy it as much as we enjoyed playing each game.”

Hijinks via the PokerStars Home Game feature

Azaria, the famous voice behind the Simpsons, plays host to the series. Along with him, the first episode also featured Don Cheadle, Jon Hamm, Michael Ian Black, Josh Charles, and Michael Cera.

Each celebrity goes home knowing his chosen charity will receive a donation from PokerStars. However, the amount is determined by the play money chips won by each player.

James Hartigan and Joe Stapleton provided commentary for the first episode. In the first episode, Cera won a big hand late to end in the top spot.

His $20,000 top prize is going to First Responders First. The organization helps front line health care workers get supplies they need.

“I’m very excited,” he said after the win. “This was so cool.”

More home games with Hank in the works

PokerStars and Azaria have more episodes already planned. A few upcoming guests include Amy Schumer and Jack Black.

Hank’s Home Game piggybacks on the Stars CALL for Action the company produced in May 2020. That event featured $1 million donated to charities with more than 90 celebrities playing the free money PokerStars.net site.

Actor David Costabile took down the tournament with $100,000 donated to his charity, World Central Kitchen. The group supplies food to those who need it most.

“Providing entertainment for our community is at the heart of everything we do at PokerStars, and Hank’s Home Game is a great reflection of this,” PokerStars group public relations associate director Rebecca McAdam Willetts said. 

“Our Home Games are a great way for people to connect and compete from home, and they can do so for free. Hank and many of his talented guests’ natural passion for poker has made bringing them together for good causes a real pleasure. We hope it also provides much-needed entertainment for viewers at home.”

How do PokerStars Home Games work?

For players new to the option, PokerStars Home Games allow players to create their own club with friends. The feature allows for numerous tournament and cash game options.

Home Games allow for easy customization including club name, leaderboards, regular games, and other features. Players can connect from locations all around the world.

For those outside regulated real money jurisdictions, PokerStars.net also allows players to utilize Home Games. These won’t be for real money, but can make for some fun action and bragging rights.

Huge prize pool for anniversary Sunday Millions

For many, the Sunday Million has become synonymous with online poker. When the tournament debuted, PokerStars became the first site to offer a regularly featured tournament with a $1 million guarantee.

Players had a shot each Sunday at a massive payday for only $215. The tournament has continued to grow through the years and still remains extremely popular.

All players on the PokerStars international site can buy in for the usual $215. However, qualifiers are already underway. Players can also win their way into the anniversary tournament for free.

PokerStars will be giving away more than $500,000 in tournament tickets beginning March 8. Final details on those plans haven’t been announced yet, but will be soon.

Looking back at a huge 2020 Sunday Million win

Last year’s 14th anniversary event also featured a $12.5 million guarantee and proved to be quite a story. Brazil’s Alex “AAAArthur” Brito came out on top and scored $1.1 million after a four-way deal.

That event attracted 60,897 players and 93,015 total entries for a final prize pool of $18.6 million. That became the biggest Sunday Million ever.

The 38-year-old married father of two from São Paulo lost his job about six months before the tournament. The win was perfect timing.

What made Brito’s win even more amazing was that he qualified for only $4. A recreational player who usually enjoys microstakes, he’s been playing on PokerStars since 2011.

After winning the $4 qualifier, he went on to win an $11 satellite to earn his spot in the tournament. After that, he just kept progressing through the tournament, surprising himself a bit but gaining confidence.

“Each pay jump I got, I felt more and more confident in my game,” he says. “At the same time, I was nervous to know that I was close to changing my family life completely.”

Winning the tournament became an ultimate dream come true. He worked as a business manager before losing his job and the win was great timing. It didn’t even seem real at first, he says.

“To be honest, it took me a little time to really understand what happened,” he says. “I can only say that it’s a dream that I’m living. I got the big hit that every poker player wants.

“I’m an example of an aspiring poker player, a recreational player who could change his own life and his family’s life thanks to poker.”

PokerStars Becomes First Site to Launch in Michigan; FOX Bet and Stars Casino Also Go Live

PokerStars officially launched in Michigan on Jan. 29.

A week after online gaming went live in Michigan, on Friday PokerStars became the first online poker site to launch in the state.

Along with PokerStars, the site’s sister brand FOX Bet also went live with sports betting and Stars Casino gaming. For poker players, the launch means the fifth legal, regulated state in the US.

PokerStars brings world-class gaming product to Michigan players

As the world’s largest and most popular online poker product, players in Michigan can now jump in the action at PokerStars. The company remains the only operator in Pennsylvania and also operates in New Jersey.

All three sites are “fenced-in” markets, meaning players only play others within each state. For example, players in Michigan can only play others within the state.

However, a recent federal court ruling could pave the way for interstate gaming compacts. The case clarified the Wire Act only applies to sports betting, making iGaming shared liquidity a possibility.

Michiganders now have access to PokerStars cash games, daily tournaments, and popular regular festivals like COOP-branded (Championship of Online Poker) series. It’s a good bet a Michigan COOP is already in the works.

PokerStars is recognized in the industry for its technology, security, and excellent software experience. From fast-paced cash games to major Sunday tournaments, real and play money games are available around the clock.

The company has dealt more than 200 billion hands and hosted more than 1.85 billion poker tournaments globally. The brand also connects customers to their local poker community of players and friends through app features like “Home Games.”

Players in Michigan can now take advantage of their own PokerStars platform as well.

PokerStars, FOX Bet launch also includes other gaming options

Along with the launch of PokerStars’ award-winning platform, the announcement includes other gaming options. The FOX Bet Sportsbook and Stars Casino round out a powerful gaming Michigan trifecta.

At Stars Casino, players will find numerous real money online gaming options beginning Friday. That includes sports betting, poker, blackjack, and more.

The in-app experience and shared wallet provides a seamless transition between differing gaming modes.

“The key differentiators for us have always been our valued partnership with the FOX Corporation and the strength of our industry leading FOX Bet Super 6 product combined with the PokerStars business and we plan to lean into these unique assets as we launch in Michigan,” FOX Bet CEO Kip Levin said in a news release.

“Behind FOX Bet Sportsbook, PokerStars, and Stars Casino, customers create one account for all three apps, unlocking a wide variety of exciting and entertaining options to supercharge the experience for our Michigan audience.”

FOX Bet Sportsbook offers traditional bets as well as in-play and futures wagering opportunities. Bettors will find a wide range of sports betting markets on national and international events.

Michigan marks the fourth state for FOX Bet, which is also available in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Colorado. As in Pennsylvania, FOX Bet Michigan will leverage poker and activate a strong local FOX presence in the state.

These online gaming brands have an agreement with the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians Gaming Authority for  market access in the State of Michigan.

The $215 NLHE version, “UnHuman3” won the title for $456,346. The tournament produced a prize pool of $6.4 million.

The $109 Blowout awarded $5 million with “pilaa” crowned the winner for $381,174.

The $11 buy-in New Year’s Bash event also proved to be a big hit. The event attracted 219,967 entries, the most of the series. The tournament awarded $2.2 million overall, with “NetoGamboa” earning the top spot for $92,745 after a four-way deal.

Multiple players turned small buy-ins into big wins. Three players – ”flynthehouse,” “r4fuel,” and “katarina1011” – all turned $2.85 into $19,623, $14,690, and $9,721, respectively.

PokerStars ambassadors find success

On the final event of the series PokerStars ambassador Lex Veldhuis won his biggest prize ever live on his Twitch stream. He placed fourth in the $5,200 Blowout Series Side Event for $97,256.

That run helped Veldhuis break his own Twitch record for number of viewers.

BRANCHING OUT: YouTube Star ‘True Geordie’ Brings His Game to PokerStars in Ambassador Role

PokerStars recently added English YouTuber Brian “True Geordie” Davis to its ambassador lineup.

PokerStars continues adding to its ambassador lineup with some players appealing to wider audiences. After recently announcing a deal with soccer star Neymar, the site has also added English YouTuber Brian “True Geordie” Davis.

True Geordie is no stranger to poker and the game has been a regular focus of his channel. The new deal follows a trend of adding ambassadors not seen as traditional poker pros.

Davis has almost 2 million subscribers on YouTube and 113,000 on Twitch. Those platforms are a major part of his role with the company as he charts his progress improving his skills.

“I’m delighted to bring a massive passion of mine to my audience,” he said in a news release. “People who know me well know that I give 100% to anything I enjoy and poker is no different. I’ve even drafted in some experts to train me up with the hope that one day I might be able to face the best in the game.”

Growing his presence with PokerStars

Adding True Geordie gives PokerStars a social media star who has a deep connection with his audience. Along with poker, Davis also streams about his love of soccer, mixed martial arts, and other topics.

That mix has the potential to bring new players into the PokerStars universe. Playing at the site won’t be a new experience for Davis and he’s partnered with PokerStars in the past. That included playing in the Stadium Series over the summer.

As part of that promotion, True Geordie played against other well-known YouTubers. He also participated in the Stars Call for Action COVID relief event.

Reaching a wide audience

Davis now joins the PokerStars fold with content geared toward poker fans and his regular viewers alike. Fans can follow his journey to improve his poker skills.

The ultimate goal is to transition from a recreational player to a professional with viewers along for the ride.

“PokerStars are the best at what they do and becoming a member of the team really is a proud moment for me,” Davis said. “I have to say a big thank you to PokerStars, who are ahead of the game in supporting digital creators and their content.”

As part of his new ambassador announcement, Geordie released a short film last week. The Showdown documents a cash game between Davis and some friends.

Fans can look forward to live streams of True Geordie playing home games and freerolls. They’ll have a shot to even get in on the action and play along with him.

“Over the next twelve months,” he said, “I hope to improve my game, play with my audience and against some of the best players in the world to show just how entertaining, fun and mentally challenging poker can be.”
