    News Item - Full Tilt

    According to a source close to Full Tilt Poker, the site’s pros are able to play in any competitor’s open event. The squad’s ability to enter this weekend’s PokerStars North American Poker Tour (NAPT) Main Event appeared to be in doubt.
    Whether members of Team Full Tilt or the site’s Red Pros will turn out to the $5,000 buy-in NAPT feature tournament remains to be seen. However, contrary to an article that appeared on ESPN.com, pros of Full Tilt are apparently more than welcome to buy into PokerStars-sponsored events. A source close to the world’s second largest online poker site told Poker News Daily, “Any Full Tilt pro, Red or member of Team Full Tilt, can play in any competitor's open event.”

    Currently, Full Tilt sponsored pro Roberto Romanello is second in chips at the PokerStars European Poker Tour (EPT) Copenhagen event with 39 players remaining. Players like Phil Ivey and Andy Bloch, both members of Team Full Tilt, competed in last year’s World Series of Poker (WSOP) Europe Main Event, which is title sponsored by Betfair.

    In 2008, Full Tilt Poker pro John Juanda took the prestigious tournament down for £868,000.

    Congratulations to Julian Thew

    Having played very little poker the past 12 months I decided to catch up with some of the forums and noticed that one player I really respect and enjoy talking to has been picked up by PokerStars as a sponsored pro.

    Julian Thew is very well known on the UK poker scene and at my first live tournament back in Jan 2007 I happened to be sat with him for the first 2 hours. Over the next 2 years I played with him on 3 other occasions.

    Link to Julian's profile here.

    (Ironically he was the first player I profiled)

    Pokerlistings extortion case - Sweden


    News stub from Pokerati...

    A 44-year-old man allegedly tried to extort PokerListings for nearly $2 million; the site’s murdered cofounder, Andreas Oscarsson(pictured right), was to testify against him this week on aggravated racketeering charges. The unidentified man claims he was working for operatives of billionaire Stefan Bengtsson, an early investor in PokerListings and one of the richest men in Sweden — supposedly trying to collect promised monies withheld after passage of the UIGEA.


    Haley Hintze (former editor of PokerNews) is following the story closely, and she’s dug up the latest from Swedish press (and 2+2). Highlights from her work below, along with a few more clicks worth of info about some of the characters emerging in this tragic tale of a boomtime poker media pioneer who became somebody’s target and a violent casualty after the online affiliate bubble burst.

    Plausibly important factoids and connections:


    (financial numbers based on current kronor-to-dollar rates of exchange)

    It’s common practice in the Swedish press not to name accused criminals until after a verdict is reached; hence the defendant on trial for allegedly trying to extort Andreas Oscarsson (and others?) is known as just the 44-year-old man.

    The 44-year-old claims he was working on behalf of a company owned by Stefan Bengtsson, trying to collect $2 million Oscarsson and PokerListings may or may not have owed to them.

    Bengtsson invested about $250,000 into PokerListings in 2003. He was set to cash out for more than $7 million in 2006. But then came the UIGEA, and he received only $5 million for his shares.

    Police say the indicted 44-year-old started by contacting Oscarsson’s finance people, demanding the $2 million difference. He once showed up unannounced at a PokerListings financial advisor’s home with his demands.

    He soon, allegedly, began threatening Oscarsson via phone calls and text messages.

    The 44-year-old also showed up to a meeting with PokerListings finance agents with Thomas Möller, former president of the Swedish Hells Angels.

    Möller was president of the Hells Angels during the Great Nordic Biker War in the mid-’90s — a three-year gang battle across Scandinavia resulting in 11 dead and 96 wounded.

    Möller has not been accused of any crimes in connection with this case.

    As the 44-year-old’s extortion/collection efforts were underway, one of Andreas Oscarsson’s advisors was shot in the leg while getting the newspaper outside his house. Two men were arrested and later sentenced for this shooting.

    Bengtsson denies any involvement, and has renounced all financial claims against Oscarsson and PokerListings.

    Bengstonn was a major investor in the International biz-pol-culture rag, Monocle, which launched in 2007.

    Bengstonn, 37, is the nephew of Stefan Persson, 62.

    Persson is a second-generation Swedish fashion magnate and philanthropist — and the 18th richest person in the world.

    Bengtsson is heir to the H&M fortune; his car collection includes a Koenigsegg, Audi A7 4.2 TDI, BMW Z8, Lamborghini Murcielago, Audi A6 Avant, Lamborghini Gallardo, and a Bentley Continental GT.

    He is not a suspect in this case nor Oscarsson’s murder.

    Another Andreas Oscarsson was shot to death a few months earlier in the same town; Swedish police have deemed it a case of mistaken identity.

    Swedish police say they still have no suspects in the murder of PokerListings’ Andreas Oscarsson.

    95 percent of violent crimes in Sweden go unsolved.

    Million Dollar Game - Free to Enter

    While the high stakes poker players continued their nosebleed grinding the UK seemingly let out a collective cheer as tone-death twins John and Edward (Jedward) were eliminated from the popular X Factor TV show. The glum looks on Jedward’s faces could possibly be matched by Isildur1’s this morning. The Swedish sensation was beating up the highest stakes games on Full Tilt less than a week ago, putting Tom “Durrrr” Dwan to the sword on several occasions.

    Now it seems the variation bitch has bitten for Isildur1. Only a few days ago he was several million dollars in the black. Today that figure is a relatively small $750,000. So what’s been happening?

    Isildur took on Patrik Antonius in a little heads up match. $500/$1000 Pot Limit Omaha was the table of choice and one pot at that table made online poker history.

    The pre-flop action was a raise-fest! Isildur raised it up to $3,000. Antonius re-raised to $9,000. Isildur wasn’t going to be pushed around by the Finnish pretty boy and re-raised again to $27,000. Antonius fired again and made it $81,000 to go. Finally Isildur called and a huge pot had already developed.

    Isildur1 held:
    Antonius went into the flop with:

    The flop had something for everybody:

    All the money found its way into the middle and a world record online pot of $1.3 million was set for the winner of the hand. The turn and river failed to hit any of the out cards for Isildur1 and the chips moved across to Antonius.

    The Finn has now won the two largest online poker pots in history to date. Both of those pots were against Isildur1 who must be wondering what he did wrong to upset the poker Gods so much. On a positive note Isildur is obviously more entertaining than the hapless Jedward. The young Swede can probably sing and dance far better than the twins too

    News Item Marcus Bebb Jones - DTD Regular English Poker Circuit

    The national UK papers have recently started reporting about the extradition of Marcus Bebb Jones in relation to the disappearance and death of his wife back in 1997.

    Daily Sentinel, The (Grand Junction, CO) October 30, 2004

    Topics:
    Index Terms: gjnews
    Missing woman's skull ID'd from 1997

    Article Text:

    By MIKE WIGGINS
    The Daily Sentinel

    A skull found earlier this month in northwestern Colorado has been identified as that of a Grand Junction woman whose husband was a suspect in her disappearance seven years ago, authorities said Friday.

    Sabrina Bebb-Jones was last seen in the city on Sept. 16, 1997, and she was reported missing two days later. Police launched an in-depth investigation and considered her disappearance a homicide. But her husband, Marcus Jones, rebuffed efforts to question him about his missing wife, and detectives hadn't received any leads in the case for years.

    A rancher discovered the skull on Oct. 2 while driving cattle near the summit of Douglas Pass in western Garfield County. Investigators brought the skull to Dr. John Bull, a forensic odontologist in Grand Junction who used dental records to identify it.

    It's unknown how Bebb-Jones, 31, died. A search party returned to the area where her skull was found to look for more bones but didn't find any.

    The Garfield County Sheriff's Department, which is conducting a joint investigation with the Grand Junction Police Department into Bebb-Jones's death, announced the identification in a release Friday but released no other information. Sheriff Lou Vallario and Undersheriff Tim Templon could not be reached for comment Friday afternoon.

    Bebb-Jones, who along with her husband owned the Hotel Melrose on Colorado Avenue at the time she disappeared, was last seen in Grand Junction leaving the hotel in a van with her 3-year-old son. A young English woman staying at the hotel reported her missing Sept. 18, 1997, telling police that Jones said his wife left town after the couple argued Sept. 16 at Mesa Mall.

    Jones and the 3-year-old left Grand Junction on Sept. 17, telling the English woman they were going to look for Bebb-Jones in Las Vegas, where she was raised and had family.

    The next day, Jones, the boy and a woman checked into a motel in Salina, Utah. Motel and restaurant workers identified the woman with Jones as Bebb-Jones.
    Six hours after checking in at the Salina motel, Jones and his son checked out and drove to Las Vegas.
    On Sept. 21, the child was found alone in a Las Vegas hotel room and was taken into custody by Nevada child protective services. The next day, Jones attempted suicide by shooting himself in the head in another hotel room.

    The Hotel Melrose remained closed for most of October while Jones remained in Las Vegas trying to get his son back. He returned to Grand Junction in November to resume running the hotel.

    In December, he applied to be a conservator for his wife's possessions, which included a van, the hotel and a house. He was granted conservatorship in May 1998.
    Later that summer, Jones sold the Hotel Melrose and moved back to his native England to be with his son and mother.

    With the discovery and identification of Bebb-Jones's remains, Grand Junction Police Chief Greg Morrison said detectives have turned over reports and evidence to Garfield County, the lead agency in the investigation.

    Morrison said the break in the case should begin providing some closure to Bebb-Jones's family and a direction for investigators in a case that was cold for a long time.

    "Now, at least her fate is known to us," he said. "It's no longer a case that's in limbo. We have a case with focus and direction."

    Betfair player wins $1 Million in the opening event of the WSOPE

    40% Rake Back Deal Click Here
    Million Dollar Game - Free to Enter
    The World Series of Poker Europe has started in spectacular style today, Betfair has made the dreams of 23 year old Anestis Metsas from Greece come true to the tune of $1 million dollars. Beginning the day as one of 18 amateur online qualifiers competing in Betfair’s Free Million Dollar game Anestis walked away from the Casino at the Empire a millionaire!



    Starting his exciting Free Million Dollar journey back in April, Anestis qualified for the final table via a series of online freerolls and a live regional qualifier, which featured thousands of poker challengers eager to make their mark. Battling it out against a strong field of players each of who had qualified from their respective region, he competed at the Free Million Dollar final table today for a grueling 10 hours against an impressive field of players set on securing a major win and a place in World Series of Poker Europe history.



    Encountering fierce competition Anestis went up against Piergiorgio D’ ancona (Italy) and Kevin Michoud (France) during the climax of the Free Million Dollar Game. Anestis winning hand of AJ was too strong for Kevin Michoud’s K9 who missed his flush draw. Anestis intends to share his winnings with friends and family and begin his spending with a luxury holiday to Phuket – a place he has always dreamed of visiting.



    Leaving the casino with a million dollar smile and cheque Anestis Metsas said: “Coming into the final table I knew I was up against 18 tough players and was hoping I could stay with the British and Scandinavian guys. The early stages were frustrating every time I had good cards, people didn’t want to go in and when I had bad cards everyone wanted to get involved in the big stacks.



    He added: “It’s unbelievable to have won, this amazing win has given me the confidence to believe I can compete against the best players in Europe and the rest of the World. Having won I’m now going to buy my way into the £1,000 No Limit Hold’em tomorrow and after that who knows.”



    Renowned for bringing the biggest names in world poker together under one high rolling roof the World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE) presented by Betfair takes place in London from 17th September to 1st October. As the most prestigious event to take place outside of the US, the tournament has rapidly gained a reputation for being one of the toughest and most exciting in the world. Last year’s record breaking 21 hour final table witnessed Juan Juanda defeat the Russian protégé Stanislaw Alekin to clinch the WSOPE Main Event title.



    Pushing poker rivalries to the limit, the unique qualifying set up for the World Series of Poker Europe means that online qualifiers and established poker pros go head to head for the estimated £1,000,000 Main Event prize and coveted WSOPE bracelet. Taking place annually at the ‘Casino at the Empire’ in Leicester Square the event also attracts its share of celebrity card players including sporting legends such as Shane Warne and Boris Becker as well as celebrities such as Danielle Lloyd.



    The full 2009 World Series of Poker Europe event schedule is as follows:

    * September 17th - Free Million Dollar Game Final
    * September 18 - 21 : £1,000 + £75 – No-Limit Hold’em (two starting days)
    * September 21 - 23 : £2,500 + £150 – Pot Limit Hold’em/Pot-Limit Omaha

    New Poker movie??

    Leonardo DiCaprio is attached to star in an untitled and as-yet-unscripted project about the world of Costa Rica-based casinos that operate online, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Paramount would make the film, pitched by screenwriters Brian Koppelman and David Levien, who wrote Ocean's Thirteen and the high-stakes poker film Rounders. Koppelman and Levien are also working with DiCaprio on an adaptation of the medical/crime thriller Beat the Reaper.

    Phil Ivey 225 pts 2 4 $340,255

    Scott Clements 135 pts 0 2 $377,009

    Villie Wahlbeck (online Finnish pro) is leading the way with his 3 deep cashes and 1 bracelet win with Phil Ivey and Brock Parker trailing close behind. There hasn't been a European winner of the POY since the system started in 2004. Roland de Wolfe is making good progress after winning his first bracelet and becoming only the 2nd player in history to win a 'triple crown'.

    Ivey is taking the WSOP more seriously this year after admitting that being remembered for his Poker achievements with bracelet wins would be more important to him than the money as he gets older. (God help the over 40's!)
