Main Event PokerParty
Who are the early favorites to win the main event at the World Series of Poker? The main event is obviously the toughest tournament to win and not necessarily means the best player wins this event. You will hear the same names every year as favorites, whether it be Phil Ivey, Phil Helmuth, Howard Lederer or Doyle Brunson. These names are as big as they come but this year like the last few years will be loaded with online poker players. There was a rumor that there was going to be a cutoff of 8,000 people for the main event, and that has been squashed as there are already bookings for over 9,000 players for the grandaddy of them all. Obviously this PokerParty is not losing any steam whatsoever.
Well two of the main big wigs at Party Gaming, Anurag Dikshit and Vikrant Bhargavar have quit the board of directors. What will this do for the online gaming giant, we'll have to see what happens. That's all for this
PokerParty and I'll see ya next time, oh yeah good luck and enjoy your experiences at the poker tables.

MansionPoker.net Poker Dome Series
Well all the waiting will finally come to an end as the television program brought to you by MansionPoker.net is going to be on air this coming Sunday May 28th.
The new poker series has established some differences in the way the show is going to be aired, and here is a little sneak peak as to what you can expect:
This is from PokerNews.com
"The Dome has added a couple innovations to the standard TV poker formula, with a studio audience that can see the players hole cards, but cannot be seen or heard by the players at the table. The players are enclosed in a glass 'dome', with soundproof one way mirrors encasing them in their own little world".
The basis of this show is that each week there will be six players at the table vying for that week's title and the winner will take home $25 grand and they will move on to the next PokerParty, which is the semi-final table. The semi-final table will have six players as well and the winner of that will take home $50 grand and a seat in the winner take all final table. The final table will be a winner take all tournament for one million dollars.
The MansionPoker.net Dome Challenge seems to be a breath of fresh air to the world of poker television. We will find out whether or not poker is still on fire on the tube , once the ratings come out, but at least there is a change in the way poker is being televised and at least it has something different to offer. We'll find out what this PokerParty is all about!

WPT Bringing The PokerParty to Canada
The World Poker Tour has announced that the North American Poker Championship is going to be coming north of the border and set up shop at the Niagara Fallsview Casino, October 25th-29th. In the past this event has been played at the Bellagio, so this is a huge move for the Tour and great news for Canadian Poker fans. It is about time that a prestigious event is going to be played on this side of the border.
I'm kind of surprised that it has taken this long for a major poker tournament to be played here but the boys and gals at the Fallsview will be ready to throw a tremendous PokerParty. I'm hoping to get out there and do some live reporting for this event. It should be a lot of fun and especially with the Fallsview in my backyard I will have a blast covering this poker tournament.

A Pokerparty Lowdown
Is poker a sport? There have been a few stories and notions on this topic of late and as far as I'm concerned there is no way poker is a sport. I'm guessing that a lot of the premise on this idea stems from the notion that since poker is being televised on ESPN that it should be considered a sport. First off, there is absolutely no physical assertion being used whatsoever at the poker table and therefore it is not a sport. I'll admit mentally, that poker is right up there with golf as far as being worn down. But, that does not classify it as a sport. Really I don't see the big deal with it having to be classified as a sport. Like who cares, it is a game and you can throw a PokerParty whenever you feel like it.
Let's just enjoy the game of poker as we know it and don't worry about having to find a classification for the game. The professionals don't care about being called athletes and that's good because they are not. The only athletes in poker are those that come from a sports background and that's it.
Poker is a game, and its a great game but it sure is not a sport.
