- WSOP Main Event 2015
Final table, D-day! Players are back at the Rio Casino Las Vegas for the traditional 'November Nine' after a four-month break. Confident that they'll win at least $1,000,000, the 9 remaining competitors of the largest yearly Poker Event of the world began playing a couple of hours ago.
By the way, last we heard, three of them have already been eliminated. Unfortunately, our European favorites Federico Butteroni and Pierre Neuville respectively ranked at 8 and 7th place, both of them have been eliminated by the chipleader Joe McKeehen who is 'on fire'.
Indeed, he ejected the last five players of the tournament and possesses now more than 50% of the table chips. We wish good luck to Max Steinberf, Neil Blumenfield, Thomas Cannuli, Josh Beckley and Zvi Stern to prevent him from crushing this TF.
Note that the game is paused until this evening. To legally watch all of this, you can buy a pass on ESPN to watch the whole event broadcasting live just for $2.99. Pretty cool!
- Battle of Malta: the beginning of the war
Organized in Portomaso Casino, it's billed as one of the most "profitable" tournaments of the tour by the players. It must be said that with its €550 worth Buy-In, it reached a prize-pool of more than €700,000 last year. Amazing! The event's reputation was built upon the numerous organized parties, which are reportedly very festive...
This year, a bit more than €500,000 are to be shared. It started on November, 4th and will end today. According to the latest information, Frenchman Nicolas Proust succeeded in reaching the TF. Good luck!

Portrayed as very friendly, funny and humane, this documentary will please all his fans from all around the world.
