8773 Players entered this year’s Online Casino Malaysia Main Event. All, no doubt keen on a victory. Each started with 10,000 chips, meaning the total chips in action were 87,730,000.
However at the end of the final table when the chips were counted there were 90,140,000.
Harrah’s seemed at a loss in terms of how to explain the extra chips.
Even when you take into account that some variance can occur due to chip race-offs, it is impossible for the race offs to account for such a large variance.
Either the dealers cocked up with some chip change overs or someone has been a little naughty. I’m sure security and monitoring will be extra tight next year. Certainly didnt effect the end result though. Jamie Gold proved unstoppable with a fine display of poker.
The Mob League on Full Tilt
The Hendon Mob are doing a slot online league to win a seat at the 2007 Main Event. Below is the schedule of tournaments which contribute to the league table
The WCOOP is a series of online poker tournaments, staged at Poker Stars.
It is widely regarded as the best of all online poker series. Part of the reason for this is that it is held just once a year, and part is because of the large guaranteed prizepools, and deepstack structure of all events. Skillful poker players should revel in this series. Some events last 15-20 hours, so it is far from the usual online donkfest. Highly recommended if you know what you are doing.
WCOOP stands for World Championship of Online Poker
