For this new stage, the Online Casino Malaysia made a stopover for the first time in its history in a Portuguese casino, Vilamoura. They were only 136 players to have paid the 5,300 euros buy-in, but more than 76 players in the running at the end of the first day.

But this tournament nevertheless attracted many foreign professional players, including Michel Abécassis, Antony Lelouche and Ludovic Lacay… as well as very good local players. And it is also Antonio Matias a Portuguese who will win the victory against Pierre Neuville.

Antonio Matias, a regular at cash games but not tournaments like the EPT, won 404,793 euros as well as a package to participate in the Monaco final in April 2023.

The next leg of the EPT will take place at the Hilton Prague in the Czech Republic from December 1-6.

Canal + was already broadcasting the World Poker Tour and whose last stop in 2023 took place very recently at the Bellagio. With Stars of Poker, Canal+ exploits the vein of screen stars opposed to poker stars, but the show also allows amateur players to qualify on the Internet and compete against the best.

So for each stage, the show has 5, it will be 18 players who will compete, including 6 pros, 6 Stars and 6 qualified amateurs on the Internet. At the end of each stage, a player will win 100,000 euros and will qualify for the Grand Final, which will take place in Cannes in May 2023 at the same time as the Film Festival.

The first four stages are scheduled to take place in 4 extraordinary places: the large Arénes de Nîmes, at the Golf National de Saint Nom la Breteche, at the Olympia and in Tignes. The Nîmes stage was filmed last July and pitted a line-up of Stars from the world of sport: Lorik Cana, Willy Sagnol, Manuel Amoros, Jean-Pierre Papin, Gael Monfils and Tatiana Golovin against great international poker players such as the French Jan Boubli, Katja Thater, Chad Brown, Marcel Luske or Luca Pagano.

You will therefore find the stages of Stars of Poker every Thursday from December 3 on Canal +, broadcast in two episodes of 52 minutes.

Unbelievable ! This is the first impression following the journey of these last players of a new online player on Full Tilt, whose nickname takes the name of a character from Tolkien’s book “The Lord of the Rings”.

Arrived on October 30 on the High Stake tables, he begins the first week by playing big and losing just as much, nearly a million dollars. But he is persistent and the amounts played attract the best players on the site, Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Brian Townsend… and especially Tom Dwan, alias Durrrr.

Because it was with Durrrr that we had the most trying confrontations: 19,000 hands and the most profitable for Isildur since he extracted nearly 2.6 million dollars from him!

So who is Isildur1, there are rumors of a group of talented players who studied Durrrr’s game, training him to play long and tiring games, when they could take turns.

As for Durrrr he invited this anonymous, whose nationality we only know (Swedish), to oppose him within the framework of the Durrrr Million Dollar Challenge, from November 17 to 19 at the Mayfair club in London, which would reveal his identity. If Isildur1 has not yet accepted, a powerful buzz is underway, remains to be seen who benefits
