partypoker’s Patrick Leonard Looking Forward to “Special” MILLIONS Online


partypoker Ambassador Patrick Leonard is looking forward to an exciting MILLIONS Online this month on partypoker

The MILLIONS Online on partypoker is underway! The Mini Main Event attracted over 1,000 entries this weekend to kick off the festival in spectacular fashion.

If you missed the Mini Main Event, there will be plenty more opportunities to take part in what promises to be one of the biggest online festivals of the year.

And there’s one person in particular that is looking forward to the next few weeks – partypoker Ambassador Patrick Leonard.

Head to the NEW partypoker Hub

Want to stay up-to-date on all the latest partypoker news right here on PokerNews? Why not try out the new partypoker Hub!

MILLIONS Online is “Special”

Leonard is no stranger to success in partypoker online events, having previously final-tabled the WPT World Online Championships Micro Main Event last September.

Now it’s time for another huge online festival, and Leonard says the MILLIONS Online is “always exciting.”

“Poker players have been spoiled over the last 12 months with online festivals,” said Leonard. “But the MILLIONS Online always feels that little bit special. There were over 140 people satellited into the Mini Main Event on the weekend. The fields are always incredible.”

The MILLIONS has a strong history in the live felt, with events in Las Vegas, Rio de Janeiro, Nottingham and Sochi to name but a few. With the events now being held online, Leonard says that he is starting to miss the live scene more and more.

“MILLIONS UK has definitely been a big miss for me at Dusk till Dawn. I do miss the local UK scene. I’m looking forward to being able to see everyone in person again.

“Most of my close friends don’t travel for live events, and I way prefer the online environment. But it’s great that people who would normally travel to play all the live stops have had the chance to play these prestigious series online instead.”

Jaime Staples

Leonard Predicts Staples Success

partypoker Ambassadors will be jumping into the MILLIONS Online over the course of the next three weeks, and we asked Leonard who he was picking as the most likely to win a MILLIONS Online title.

“I think Jaime or Matt Staples might run it up this series. I predicted that Jaime would do well during WPT Montreal Online and I don’t think he got the title, so hopefully he doesn’t let me down again or I’m going to have to start going for Isaac Haxton every time!”

With so many satellite opportunities to make your way into the MILLIONS Online, there is a high likelihood of an underdog coming through. Back in November, two players won their way into the Caribbean Poker Party Main Event for $0.01, and Leonard says he’s hoping for an underdog win.

“I’d love for an underdog to run deep,” he told PokerNews. “I always try and get involved and coach a fans’ favourite one way or another, so will have my eyes peeled for who it is this time around.”

Making GTO More Accessible | Red Chip Poker

Breaking down the biggest buzzword in poker, “GTO”. How is play-calling in American football analogous to playing GTO in poker? James and Chris help make this scary concept more accessible by simplifying terms like “frequency” and “range advantage” through real-world hands and examples.

GGPoker Adds More Variety to No-Strings-Attached “Daily Freebie” Promotion

Verified players can continue to play a real-money game, such as Flip & Go and Spin & Gold, for free each and every day.One of the most popular promotions for low stakes players on GGPoker has been further expanded.

During the software update on February 10, the Daily Free Spin promotion changed to Daily Freebie. Furthermore, UK players can now also claim the daily gift for a chance to boost their bankrolls.

All players, both existing and new, just need to have verified accounts and log in each day to claim their gift, which lets plays play real money tournaments—and compete for real money cash prizes.

The update has expanded what is given away. Now, there are Daily Freebie tickets for Flip & Go, the super-successful new format introduced in January 2021. It has also undergone some changes since its launch, with GGPoker increasing the frequency and adjusting the buy-ins as well as the maximum number of stacks for purchase.

“GGPoker is happy to confirm that we’ve relaunched our Daily Free Spin offer as the Daily Freebie; verified players can continue to play a real-money game, such as Flip & Go and Spin & Gold, for free each and every day. All they need to do is log in and claim their daily reward!” said Paul Burke, Head of Public Relations at GGPoker.

“We hope to continue to change up the rewards on offer in the future, giving all players the opportunity to try out GGPoker’s most exciting games, no matter their bankroll.”

For existing players, Daily Freebie is available immediately—just log in and claim.

If you haven’t yet signed up, you can do so today and enjoy the promotion as soon as you have verified your account. You can also take advantage of all of GGPoker’s generous welcome bonuses.

How the GGPoker Daily Freebie Promotion Works

The operator has seen unprecedented growth in 2020 to become one of the leading online poker platforms for tournaments and cash games. GGPoker has achieved that with a plethora of promotions, innovations, and high-profile partnerships. Their continued success has led to a record $7.5 million in promotions given away in February 2021.

One of several promotions for players with smaller bankrolls is the Daily Freebie formerly the Daily Free Spin.

This was launched on September 7, 2020. It has given verified players the opportunity to claim one $0.25 Spin & Gold ticket every day ever since. The free ticket courtesy of GGPoker continues to be available under the new name three times per week—*but this rotates with other ticket types.*

Players can see the next six upcoming Daily Freebies listed under the “My Promo” tab. A new daily gift becomes available after each daily reset at midnight Pacific time. Each ticket will continue to feature an expiration date of 24 hours once the Daily Freebie has been awarded.

The current rotation of Daily Freebie is fixed for the time being. However, GGPoker hopes “to change the daily prizes on a semi-regular basis,” according to Burke. He also hinted at a strong possibility that the Daily Freebie will include the alternative currencies C$ or T$ sometime soon.

Newly included as a prize in the Daily Freebie is a $1 Spin & Gold ticket, which can be claimed once per week. Furthermore, five $0.05 Flip & Go tickets are up for grabs three times per week, giving players the chance at trying the new tournament format free of charge.

As a mixture between a Flipout and regular tournament, Flip & Go was launched on January 12, 2021. However, it only took a few days for the first tweaks to be made. Initially slated to take place once every hour, it was soon increased to once every 30 minutes.

The buy-ins were also adjusted and the lowest available stake was increased to $0.05 with a guarantee of $50. Players can now take a shot at their own leisure three times per week and enter this lowest tier with five stacks thanks to the Daily Freebie.

Upon launch, the Flip & Go featured a maximum of 10 entries for each of the four stakes. However, that number has been adjusted recently and the stacks for purchase are now capped at a maximum of eight. This makes the bonus stacks based on the holdings during the Flipout stage more valuable in comparison.

The overall feedback for the new tournament format has been very positive, as outlined by Burke.

“Players love it! We have been very pleasantly surprised by the positivity seen across almost all feedback, of course not all players are interested in a new game type but those who have tried it have mostly good things to say about Flip & Go. We’ve also received some constructive criticism, which is also valuable.”

Further tweaks to the Flip & Go format may very well possible, as GGPoker is constantly reviewing and optimizing its schedule. One such adjustment was made with the expansion of the popular Daily GGMasters earlier in February.

The changes to the Daily Freebie promotion went live on February 10. All verified GGPoker players in eligible countries can claim their daily gift under the “My Promo” tab after each daily reset.

More PokerSnowie Study | Jonathan Little

04_freetrialI have been studying poker a ton recently and one of my favorite programs to work with is PokerSnowie. Since I strive to constantly bring you the best training material possible, I decided to record a few videos of me studying for you to watch. These two videos are of me playing against PokerSnowie’s Challenge feature, which essentially lets me play against a number of “perfect”-playing bots. It is useful to see how they react to my play and also how they approach common situations. If you play against excellent players on a regular basis, if you play significantly different than these bots, you are almost certainly making significant errors.

I hope you enjoyed these videos. If you want to study using PokerSnowie, check it out here! Be sure to check back next week for another educational blog post. Thanks for watching!

BGC ices gambling talk on football social media sites


The UK Betting and Gaming Council (BGC) is asking football clubs to refrain from discussing and promoting gambling on their social media sites in as part of an effort to avoid triggering problem gamblers. It’s move that may seem extreme to the layman, but will likely help keep UK gambling operators a step ahead of UK gambling regulators.
Guidelines for how football clubs should handle discussions of gambling were sent out by the BGC late last week and utilize a plea from 50 former gambling addicts to make the case. They pointed out that seeing their favorite club site promoting gambling caused them “distress” and “encouraged” them to place wagers.
As an effort to avoid these triggering moments, the BGC is recommending that football clubs refrain from promoting gambling operators or bonus offers and their “organic tweets”. This is a nod to the reality that gambling offers are ubiquitous on social media and that no one is really more than a click or two away from them on the internet anyways.
BGC officials sent a letter detailing the new code of conduct to 11 football clubs, as well as to social media operators.
In a statement reported on by SBC News, Brigid Simmonds OBE, Chairman of the BGC described the importance of the new standards saying, “Our members rightly have a zero tolerance approach to gambling by under-18s, so as an industry we are understandably concerned that children may be exposed to betting adverts on social media platforms. Our new guidelines make clear the standards expected of football clubs when they post gambling promotions on social media, and I look forward to them being put into practice as soon as possible.”
The BGC guidelines are not legally binding, but members of the BGC who wish to remain in good standing are expected to abide by them.

Win a Share of $1.5 Million in PokerStars’ Tetris® Spin & Go Games


PokerStars Tetris Spin & Go

Tetris® combines with Spin & Go tournaments at PokerStars in a fun promotion that sees $1.5 million paid out between February 15 and March 28.

Head to the Spin & Go lobby in the PokerStars client and you’ll see there are Tetris® Spin & Go games with buy-ins of $0.25, $1, $2, $5, $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, and $500. They all play out the exact same way as a traditional Spin & Go, meaning they’re three-handed hyper-turbo tournaments where the prize pool is randomly determined before the first hand is dealt.

It’s still possible to win up to $1 million in some of these game, but there are a few notable differences.

First, the virtual felt is made up of Tetris® blocks, which actually looks pretty cool. Also, the dealer button is now a Tetris® block too, and other blocks fall down the screen.

The Tetris® part of the promotion comes in the form of leaderboards. There’s a separate leaderboard for each Tetris® Spin & Go buy-in level, so 10 in total. You need to opt-in and then fire up some Tetris® Spin & Go tournaments.

Play your tournaments as you would ordinarily, but do so knowing the aim of the game is to clear lines, just like in Tetris®. The number of lines you clear depends on your Spin & Go multiplier and your finishing position in the tournament.

Your level increases each time you clear five lines. This results in you earning even more points so you can climb up your leaderboard faster.

The 2021 Guide to PokerStars Spin and Go Poker

How Many Lines Do I Clear?

  1st 2nd 3rd
2x 4 3 2
3x 3 2 1
Over 3x 2 1 1

As you can see from the table above, finishing in 1st place in a Tetris® Spin & Go that has a 2x multiplier clears four lines. Just playing a tournament earns you points.

How Do You Earn Points?

The number of leaderboard points you earn is based on your finishing position and your current level. You start off earning 40 points for clearing one line when you’re at Level 0, but this increases to 840 points if you manage to climb to Level 20, which is the highest level you can achieve.

It is possible to earn up to 25,200 points per Tetris® Spin & Go tournament, as you can see in this table.

Level Points for 1 Line Points for 2 Lines Points for 3 Lines Points four 4 Lines
0 40 100 300 1,200
1 80 200 600 2,400
2 120 300 900 3,600
3 160 400 1,200 4,800
n =40*(n+1) =100*(n+1) =300*(n+1) =1,200*(n+1)
20 840 2,100 6,300 25,200

Tetris® Spin & Go Payout Table

The leaderboards payout $33,000 every day throughout the promotion making for a combined total of $1,500,000 just for playing Tetris® Spin & Go tournaments.

The $0.25, $1, $2, and $5 leaderboard payout the top 100 points earners, so you have a decent chance of walking away with a cash prize. The prizes don’t have any restrictions on them meaning you’re free to do with them as you wish.

  $0.25 $1 $2 $5 $10 $25 $50 $100 $250 $500
1 $50 $150 $250 $400 $500 $500 $750 $1,000 $1,500 $3,000
2 $40 $100 $200 $300 $400 $400 $600 $800 $1,000  
3 $30 $75 $150 $250 $350 $350 $500 $600 $750  
4 $20 $50 $100 $200 $300 $300 $400 $500 $500  
5 $15 $25 $50 $150 $250 $250 $300 $400 $500  
6-10 $10 $20 $40 $100 $150 $150 $150 $200    
11-20 $5 $10 $20 $50 $100 $100 $100 $100    
21-50 $5 $5 $10 $25 $50 $50        
51-100 $5 $5 $5 $10            

Spin & Go Your Way to a PokerStars Sunday Million Seat

The Tetris® Playing Field – Avoid Hitting Game Over

There’s an extra element to this promotion that you have to be aware of at all times. PokerStars calls it the Playing Field.

Just like in a game of Tetris® where it is Game Over when the blocks reach the top of the screen, it can be game over for you if you go on a streak of out of the money finishes!

Finishing in first place either improves your Playing Field status or makes zero change to it. Finish in second place, however, and your Playing Field status either stays the same or actually worsens, which is also the case when you finish in third place.

Your table, or playing field, is green in color when your Playing Field is in a good state. It turns amber when it is worsening and turns red when you’re in big trouble. Failing to win when your playing field is red could see you reach Game Over which means you cannot earn any more leaderboard points until the next day!

The changes to your playing field status depend on your current level.

  1st place   2nd place   3rd place    
Level Improve No Change No Chance Worsen No Change Worsen  
0-1 100% 0% 100% 0% 100% 0%  
2-5 80% 20% 80% 20% 50% 50%  
6-9 60% 40% 60% 40% 40% 60%  
10-13 40% 60% 40% 60% 30% 70%  
14-17 20% 80% 20% 80% 200% 80%  
18-20 20% 80% 20% 80% 10% 90%  

Get Involved in the Tetris® Spin & Go Promotion

With $33,000 waiting to be won every day until March 28 there’s no time to waste if you want to win some free cash.

Download PokerStars via PokerNews, enter the bonus code “STARS600” when making your first deposit and PokerStars will match your deposit 100% up to $600. In fact, your first three deposits in a 90-day window are matched 100% up to a combined maximum of $600.

All you need to do then is opt-in and fire up some Tetris® Spin & Go tournaments and see if you can pad your bankroll with some of the $1.5 million that’s guaranteed to be won. That and try not to spend the rest of the day humming the famous Tetris® tune!

The Stars Group is a majority shareholder in Oddschecker Global Media, the parent company of PokerNews.

Is Hellmuth vs Negreanu happening?

We recap some stories you may have missed including a huge PKO event and how much of himself is Landon Tice playing for?

KidPoker vs the Poker Brat?

We hinted at it last week and now it seems confirmed that Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth will play heads-up. 

Given both men are traditionally live players it seems inevitable that it will be face to face and streamed on PokerGO. 

The early betting markets have suggested Hellmuth is the favourite, which seems ludicrous given how much Negreanu improved in his heads-up challenge against Doug Polk

Tice has skin in the game

The other big heads-up match in the works is Landon Tice vs Bill Perkins, and it has been the subject of a lot of debate this last week.

Namely, how much does the poker wunderkind Landon Tice have invested in himself? Rumours circulated that he is playing for just 10% of himself in this challenge where he is already paying Bill Perkins $720,000 to play. 

Tice confirmed that he has sold a lot of action for this event but while his percentage is low, it still means he has a lot of his net worth on the line:

MicroMillions the biggest PKO ever?

The MicroMillions Main Event was a PKO for the first time in its history and it (probably) automatically became the biggest field ever for a progressive knockout tournament. 

49,487 entries for the $22 Main Event, which was not quite enough to hit the $1 million guarantee. 

It did lead to one player bagging almost $60,000 for their troubles including $18,651.13 in bounties alone:

The final table

Table stakes only

OK, so this week’s meme classic from Reddit beats all those ‘toilet roll poker home game’ jokes from last year:

When Polaks Play Poker from r/poker

Will we see Hellmuth vs Negreanu heads-up? Let us know in the comments:

PokerStars Rolls Out New LSNG Leaderboard Promotion, Tetris + Spin & Go

PokerStars has rolled out Tetris + Spin & Go, a temporary takeover of their ultra-popular lottery sit and go game with a new theme and a lucrative new promotion for players.

F5poker first revealed that PokerStars was working on such a promotion back in September 2020. On Monday, it deployed globally on most licenses on the global dot-com pool as well the European shared liquidity network of Spain, France and Portugal.

The Spin and Go lobby in the client has been redesigned with a Tetris aesthetic, as have the tables. The game itself remains unchanged—fast, winner-takes-all sit and gos with a random top prize.

What is new is the promotion on top: Tetris-themed leader boards. While the mechanics are fairly complicated—it involves Line Clears, Levels and Game Scores—it boils down to daily player rankings where cash prizes are given out to the highest volume players.

For players that fall outside the cash prizes, the operator has a $5000 daily prize draw for players that finished in the top 500.

In total, the operator says that over $1.5 million will be paid out in the dot-com market and almost as much—€1 million—in the Southern European market from now until the end of March. This works out at over $33,000 daily in dot-com, and €23,000 in Southern Europe.

It appears to replace the previous long-running Spin & Go 20 and 50 leader boards. This had given away just over $20,000 a week and had run throughout much of 2020.
