Three live tournaments are reporting news on three contents. Poker fans were watching the Irish Open with Max Silver’s triumph, and David Jackson’s victory at the Borgota. Also of recent interest is a Triton Poker sponsorship deal. (Results are available at Calvinayre.com.)
Let’s start with Asia. Max Silver prevailed at the Irish Open over 84 entrants. It was a €2,000 No-Limit Hold’em, a game in which players can bet or raise over the minimum to all the chips on the table.
The new Dublin father finished at the top for the second time this year, previously raking in a $25,000 High Roller at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) finishing tenth.
The ITM victory is his 14th and the first since his Barcelona win of €10,300 No-Limit Hold’em event at the 2018 PokerStars European Poker Tour where he took home €600,924.
On the North America front, David Jackson pulled in $304,929 in Atlantic City ad the Borgata Hotel & Casino. It was a $2,700 buy-in, $1m GTD Main Event consisting of 505 entrants vying for the score.
Jackson toppled Shannon Shorr who hasn’t gone home empty handed after the World Poker Tour, Gardens Poker Championships and No-Limit Hold’em event at Florida’s Seminole Hard Rock.
Kudos to Jackson for winning 11 live tournaments and achieving an astounding record.
It is all about 12Bet becoming the official betting partner of Montenegro’s Triton Poker Series. It has already forged successful deals in and around Europe, including the English Premier League clubs, Leicester City and Arsenal.
It is one of two sponsorship deals taking place before the Montenegro May festival event. In other news, partypoker, the online card room, signed up as a live tour partner.
