You've probably seen the endless amount of poker shows on television almost on a daily basis...the WSOP, EPT, WPT, UPC, CPT, BPO, Celeb Poker, and the list goes on...Funny thing is, last week, a friend of mine randomly said, "Wouldn't it be funny if they started broadcasting online poker games on television??" I thought, who'd waste their time plugging up a computer and broadcasting online games on T.V... Little did I know, their actually IS a television show where they view an ONLINE POKER GAME in action...and have professional commentary! I forget what the show is called, but it's lame as hell!
By the way, if your looking for a quick poker fix, TexasHoldem-Academy.com
launched its 24/7 online poker television broadcast for you to watch anywhere and anytime of the day.Some poker rumours
I was listening to an online radio show sometime early this week and some dude was being interviewed about the world of poker... Anyway, he mentioned an upcoming poker event that's in the works for later this year. Apparently, the FOX station is putting together the biggest buy-in freezeout tourney in history - $10,000,000 buy-in!!! 6 players will buy-n for $10 mil and only one player will win it all, 60 huge ones...insane? Yes. Crazy? Yes.
A few of the names mentioned to play are Phil Ivey, Phil Helmuth and Doyle Brunson...I'm routing for Gus Hansen to fall into the mix! =) I wonder if there's a satellite into this $10 mil buy-in tourney? =SLooking for a Heads Up Challenge?

A Spektacular Press Release:
There's a press release circulating around the internet about this blog, if you haven't seen it yet, here it is:
"Toronto, On - March 18, 2006 -- Ever since Chris Moneymaker won over 2.5 million dollars at the 2003 WSOP (World Series of Poker) from a $39 online poker satellite, every average Joe jumped on the poker-band wagon to try to do the same; as did Ivan Correces also known as Spektacular(Spek for short) on various online poker sites.
“I deposited $50 into an online poker site and went broke within a week…I had a friend who had a healthy bankroll on one site, so I told him to transfer $10 to my account. I promised him that not only would I pay him back, I’m going to double, triple, quadrouple that ten dollars into my lifetime poker bankroll…And I’m glad to say, I haven’t gone broke yet…”
Spek spent his December holidays building up his bankroll playing no limit Texas Holdem and kept a journal of short stories of victories and terrible bad beats he’s experienced over the course of time.
In five short days he turned $10 into $200. Then poker reality hit,
“The first week or so, I was on a crazy winning streak. I mean, I was on fire! After a while, the reality of gambling hit me…I started losing to horrible suck outs and bad beats. I lost about a third of my bankroll in two days. I was a bit worried I’d lose it all and start all over again…”
Did it work out? Did Spek lose his bankroll after experiencing some tough losses? “I went from ten bucks to over $700 in a few weeks, and I’m steadily winning more and more,” Spek says confidently.
Spek’s been playing online Texas Holdem and winning consistently over the last few months. His favourite games are the no limit Texas Holdem $20 and $30 sit & goes (SNG’s) and small buy-in Tourney’s on PokerStars.com. You can read Spektacular’s poker progess at http://spektacular.blogspot.com."
