Also this evening, Bet365 Poker is offering a re-buy Texas Hold’em tournament where you start with 2,000 chips with the chance to buy another 2,500 after the first session. The initial buy in is $109 and the guaranteed prize pool is a massive $35,000, which makes the tournament very attractive to players hoping to build their bankroll.

Yet another tournament starting this evening is the Poker Stars Super Tuesday $300,000 with a buy in of $1,050. If you are quick then you may be able to qualify through a satellite at a fraction of that not insubstantial buy in.

Despite the movement to legalise online poker in the USA the federal agencies are still getting tough on online players. The State Supreme Court has upheld the federal prosecutors’ move to grab over half a million dollars from Secure Money Inc which is a Canada based poker payment company. The company ended up in the courts thanks to a sting operation organised be federal agents. They played poker online then withdrew their winnings. The cheque they received was issued by Secure Money which was considered by the courts to constitute sufficient evidence.

The Betfair Live Poker tournament has been in action at Prague and some of the world’s top poker players have been competing for a share of the $100,000 prize pool which has a top prize of $30,000. At the end of the day the final heads up was between Jan Škampa and Miroslav Záruba, both of whom are from the Czech Republic. Eventually Škampa won and added to his total tournament winning of over a million dollars.
