Electrical Engineer Wins Over $1.2 Million

WSOP 2015: Electrical Engineer Wins Over $1.2 Million in Millionaire Maker Event

The World Series of Poker makes a dream come true for Adrian Buckley.

Adrian Buckley, an electrical engineer from Westminster, Colorado, outlasted a 7,275 player field to win $1,277,193 and his first World Series of Poker bracelet. In fact, winning the Millionaire Maker represents his first WSOP in the money finish of any kind.

“I mean, getting through 7,000 people. It’s not something you think about until it happens’” Buckley said. “I hoped to run super deep, and knew I had the skill to get here. But it’s just surreal to live out the dream.”

Buckley entered the final day against a strong final table with only 10 big blinds in his chipstack, but tremendous patience, skill and a bit of run good helped the 27-year old defeat the likes of Mike Sexton, Erick Lindgren and Olivier Busquet on his way to the title.

Dirty Poker Tricks and How to Fight Back

Dirty Poker Tricks and How to Fight ‘Em Back

When playing poker games, chances are that you will have to deal with some players that do things that are technically within the rules but are designed to prod opponents to take particular actions. Usually, there are easy ways to parry these attacks, but you have to be able to see them coming. The process of using these tricks is called “angle shooting,” and knowing what these stratagems look like is the best way to keep them from taking advantage of you at the online poker tables.

The fake fold

During the preflop, an angle shooter picks up his cards and then moves his wrist to look like he’s about to fold. However, he really holds onto his cards. He wants other people to think that he really folded and then do something that they wouldn’t have done otherwise. If several more people fold before action stops, he knows that raising is safer because there aren’t as many callers. If someone else does raise, he can just fold when things come back around to him.

So, if you see someone do the fake fold and then the next player takes a turn, make sure to speak up so that everyone knows that the fake folder still has his cards.

Getting off the betting line

If there are betting lines on a poker table, many angle shooters will take advantage of them. One trick is to move a stack of chips with some vigor just short of the line. He wants the opponents to think that he’s made a bet or a raise or call. You reaction will dictate whether he elects to have it stand as a valid bet or say that he had not really placed the chips into the pot.

To counteract this, if you see those chips stop short, ask the dealer to find out whether that’s really a bet before you do anything yourself.

Raising out of turn

In this situation, the angle shooter comes late in the action order and either is looking for a free showdown or a free card. In order to keep you from betting or raising, he says “Raise” or “All in” even when it’s not his turn. He wants you to think that he was making a simple mistake and that he has the intention of re-raising you.

Action happens out of turn quite frequently in live poker, and often it really is an innocent gaffe. However, if veteran players make this mistake suddenly, be aware that he might be trying to pull a fast one. He doesn’t really want you to bet or raise, which means that you should because he is likely to fold anyway.

Hiding the big money

In order to win real cash, some players hide their big chips or big bills down in their stash, or even behind their stashes, so that they are hard to see. When the nuts fall to them, they verbally say “All in” without showing their opponents how much they have. Then, when they win, the opponents find out that they owe much more than they had thought.

To prevent this, if you notice that a player is hiding cash or chips, ask the dealer to have him reveal it – or even ask for a count.

Playing Online Poker at the World Series of Poker

What You Need to Know about Playing Online Poker at the World Series of Poker

Free Wi-Fi access for players on newly installed infrastructure will facilitate the play of online poker at the 2015 WSOP.

For the first time ever, players will be able to play online poker from their mobile devices while playing live at the World Series of Poker. Last year, players were allowed to bring laptops to the table, but since then WSOP.com has made its software available for both Android and iOS devices.

Free Wi-Fi will be made available in all areas of the Rio so that players will have access to play online at WSOP.com. Guests at the Rio will have Wi-Fi in their rooms included as part of their resort fees. WSOP organizers will be picking up the tab for Wi-Fi in the WSOP tournament area.

Organizers have gone to great lengths to ensure they have the proper bandwidth to accommodate the massive crowds expected at the Rio. Wi-Fi upgrades have been rolled out to all of the Caesars hotels in Las Vegas, with the Rio being the most recent of the properties to receive the technology boost.

The upgrades at the Rio have only been in place for about a month, according to Seth Palansky, Vice President of Communications for WSOP parent company Caesars Interactive Entertainment, and have not yet been tested to their limits. “But we have had the Consumer Electronics Show with plenty of convention business at Caesars Palace, and the Wi-Fi network worked flawlessly.”

Palansky described the improvements as being “light years ahead of our past offerings.” However, he did acknowledge that “the WSOP is its own unique animal.” “I’m sure the usage will test our constraints,” he continued, “but we believe we’ll adequately handle folks’ needs related to emails, social media, phone calls and even playing on WSOP.com.”

“I wouldn’t expect folks to stream movies etc.,” but otherwise Palansky expects the free offering to be very good. If players did want to stream movies, an upgrade option with access to greater bandwidth will be available for a fee.

CAUTION: NOT ALL WI-FI ACCESS TO WSOP.COM IS THE SAME

Now that players can easily play online and live at the same time, Bill Rini, Head of Online Poker at WSOP, expects more cash game and tournament action live and online, but some players may find that they cannot access some cash games or tournaments.

Nevada Gaming Control Board Regulations stipulate that only one player per IP address is allowed to “play in a cash game or a specific tournament,” according to Rini. However, the IP addresses from the Rio and other Caesars’ properties throughout Las Vegas are on a “whitelist” which exempts them from this restriction.

Players attempting to play online from other Las Vegas hotels and private residences may not be afforded the same luxury and may need to make other arrangements in order to play in certain tournaments and cash games on WSOP.com, Rini cautioned during the Official 2015 WSOP Media Conference Call.
