  1. The obsession with competition, dedication to improvement, and doing what it takes to be the best. These are just some of the themes on display in Netflix’s new binge-worthy hit The Queen’s Gambit, the mini-series that depicts a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the chess world - a world, it turns out, that is not so far from that of poker. Adapted from Walter Tevis’s novel of the same name, the new TV show tells the fictional story of chess prodigy Beth Harmon, portrayed by Anya Taylor-Joy, as she battles through her childhood struggles and breaks through into the upper echelons of the chess world. Jennifer Shahade knows a thing or two about the correlation between chess and poker. Shahade is a two-time United States Women’s Champion, Women’s Program Director at U.S. Chess, and, perhaps better known to poker players, an ambassador for PokerStars. “I loved it, because it showed a different side of chess,” Shahade said about the series. “The glamorous side, the grown-up side. So many of the movies and series about chess are about scholastic chess and the triumph. And I love those movies, but I really liked that this was a different side of it. Yes, it's not suitable for children. And in a way, I feel like, sets it apart from all of those other chess content pieces, and makes it into something that could potentially build a bridge between people who play chess as children and people who play chess later in their life. “It’s kind of like the poker side of chess. It's the travel, the glamour, the relationships between the people that you meet on the tour. The individualistic side of it.” Depiction of poker in movies and TV has a tendency to be unrealistic with famous scenes setting up improbable hands for impossible stakes. While still entertaining, for poker players movies like Rounders endures due to how true it speaks to the culture of the game. For Shahade, The Queen’s Gambit does just that for the world of chess. A realistic portrayal of the study, the friendships, and the game itself. Part of that, she credits to production consultants like Russian chess Grandmaster Gary Kasparov and renowned chess author and instructor Bruce Pandolfini. “If you are a chess person, or even if you're just interested in learning more about it, you can kind of watch The Queen's Gambit twice. Once for the story, and second to look at all the games, and see what happened in the games. So it's amazing that you get to have this dual viewing. “I think the main thing is that they nailed the emotion and the intensity of the intellectual struggle. The ability to just completely focus on the chess, and try to find the correct moves, and how that almost gives you this brief period of ecstasy where you're just absorbed in your own thoughts. And that also has some correlation with poker as well, especially heads up poker.” In 2010, the International Mind Sports Association officially recognized poker as a mind sport, putting it, categorically, on the same level as chess. For those that enjoy both games, it makes sense as there’s plenty of similarities when it comes to succeeding. A Venn diagram of the qualities that top players in both games possess would have plenty of overlap and for Shahade, one doesn’t have to look too deep to see how the games compare. “I think the approach to the game, to getting better, is very similar. No matter what amount of time you have to put into poker or chess, there's a different strategy to improving, and it's similar for both games. You look at what types of situations are going to come up most frequently, like in the Sicilian Defense, or the Queen's Gambit opening. You study those, and you also study this stuff that might happen at the end of the game, which we also saw, the rook and pawn endgame. “Well in poker, there're corollaries to that," she said. “You study your opening ranges, you study your late tournament ICM, and shoving ranges. Cause you know that it's going to come up, and so if you study it, you're definitely going to get better. That's the kind of things you're also looking for in chess.” Poker and chess have also shared a recent resurgence in interest in the midst of the global pandemic. With nearly a million followers on Twitch, the chess category brings top-tier players and fans together to watch games and discuss strategy in the same way poker fans tune in to players like Lex Veldhuis or to watch matches like the Polk-Negreanu challenge. “There's been a huge chess boom over the last 10 years even. But it's obviously accelerated in the last six months, and the last year,” Shahade said. “There are so many factors to it. I mean, part of it is its depiction and movies and TV, and obviously now The Queen's Gambit. A lot of it is streaming on Twitch, chess is really well-suited for streaming, much like poker.” “Fellow PokerStars pro Fintan Hand had a great thread on why poker and Twitch are such a natural marriage, because of the fact that you can actually watch people play for real money, and that adds that layer of excitement on top of the other inherent interesting things about getting to see people's hole cards,” she said. “Chess is a really good fit for Twitch too because the games are so fast. So you can really chunk it up, you can play a game, then interview someone, play a series of 10 games against your top subs. There are so many things you can do in a game that is so fast, where you literally can finish a game in one minute. And then visually it's rather simple, right? There's just a square, and so I think that also allows for some really beautiful layouts. That really contributed to its growth.” Aside from gameplay, poker and chess also share the quality and challenges of being a male-dominated industry. The Queen’s Gambit showcases this time and time again as Beth Harmon often times finds herself alone in her chess journey. Shahade, who has excelled in both chess and poker, understands what it means to succeed in these fields. “I think both of them are somewhat similar in that there's a lot of great enthusiasm for top women players. There can be some extra opportunities, but then there can also be a lot of resentment and sometimes harassment,” she said. “It really privileges a personality type that's strong and likes positive attention and is able to withstand negative attention. And that's great because the women you meet from chess and poker are usually really tough and strong people. “That said, I think that there's also a lot of space in our worlds for more sensitive people. It's not like it's the only positive personality type is to be super strong, and like positive attention, and not care about negative attention. No, people who are a little bit shyer and more sensitive, we want them too. You want that diversity of personality. And so that's what I struggled with in both games, that the women who end up succeeding are often extremely successful, and really inspirational. “But if we just look at them we don't really get the answer, because we have survivorship bias. What you really need to do is look at the people who aren't there, because they stopped playing, because they're more sensitive to harassment, which is totally legitimate. They might've had a bad experience, they might not have the same support system, who knows? It's not my job to psychoanalyze it, but the point is they're not there, and these games could give them a lot of amazing things in their life, so we want to keep them. That, I guess, is something that in both fields, I think we have to do better of. Not falling prey to the survivorship bias when we analyze how to get better.” As both industries strive to be more inclusive for women, Shahade has found a position that has allowed her to be an example and proactive in reaching out to women in chess including starting The Madwoman’s Book Club which was inspired by the chess queen. “When chess was first born, the queen was the weakest piece on the board,” she said. “She could only move one square in each direction. Then, as the game evolved, they realized this game was kind of boring, it took too long, so they made the queen the most powerful piece on the board. There was some resistance to it at first, they called it the ‘crazy woman’ or ‘mad woman’s’ chess game at first, and then it became the game that we play now.” “So I always think that it’s funny that people have this resistance to powerful women that actually end up making the game better.”
  2. There are still plenty of PokerStars Platinum Passes left to be won in 2018. However, only five more Platinum Passes are available to be earned as a part of the PokerStars Platinum Pass Adventure. The program enables PokerStars ambassadors to create unique ways for players to win their way to the 2019 $25,000 PokerStars Players No Limit Hold’em Championship. Now PokerStars personalities Daniel Negreanu, Maria Konnikova, Jeff Gross, Jen Shahade and Lex Veldhuis will be handing out passes. Each ambassador tasks their fanbase to perform something unique in an effort to be one of the people selected at a shot to win millions in the Bahamas. Negreanu Asks "Who Do You Play For?" Daniel Negreanu’s challenge is asking the poker community the question “Who are you playing for?” Negreanu understands that players are likely hoping for a score to change their own lives, but he’s asking for more. His challenge requires people to create a short video discussing a motivating charity, cause or foundation that would also benefit from having you playing in the PSPC. “You can make a huge difference for yourself and make the world a better place at the same time. So…who do you play for?” Negreanu said. Submit the video using the social media hashtag #DonateWithDaniel by September 30. Negreanu will select his top five finalists and then, on October 13 award the Platinum Pass. The four finalist videos that are not selected will all earn $1,000 for the charities or causes discussed. If the winner of the challenge cashes or, even wins, they will donate 50% of their earnings to the charity in their video. Konnikova's Poker Story Maria Konnikova’s poker story is incredibly unique. After having set out to write a book about what it takes to become a professional poker player, she actually lived it out. She turned a victory in the $1,500 2018 PokerStars PCA National event for $84,000 into a sponsorship deal with PokerStars. Now, she’s giving away a Platinum Pass to someone else who has a story to tell. “I truly believe that creativity and storytelling are among the most valuable and most often overlooked skills in poker - and I can’t wait to see you embrace those skills in this challenge,” Konnikova said. Konnikova's #mypokerstory challenge is looking for the most compelling story of what it means to be a good poker player. Are You Ready For Your Close Up? The social media savvy Jeff Gross has been creating YouTube vlogs for years and now he’s looking to inspire someone else to pick up a camera and begin to document their journey. “To have the opportunity to encourage someone to create something they are passionate about and give away a once in a lifetime experience trip to the PSPC means the world to me,” said Gross. “This is an event that will go down in history as one of the most special poker tournaments of our time.” Visit Gross' YouTube Channel for more details on his challenge. Create The Ultimate Game Of Skill Chess expert Jennifer Shahade found her way to to the felt by way of the chess board. Now, she’s hoping to find the next poker superstar among those who also share a love for both games. The #MyChessPokerGame challenge is asking the community to create a new game that incorporates elements of both chess and poker. “Poker is not just a game, but a passion, a science and a community, just like my first love, chess,” said Shahade. Shahade will select the finalists and a panel of poker and chess professionals will help select the winner, including Negreanu, Live Boeree and International Chess Master Danny Mensch. Pay It Forward Team PokerStars Online Pro Lex Veldhuis has also opted for a person of charity to receive his Platinum Pass. Hoping to find someone who will pay it forward, Veldhuis is looking for someone who will take action by documenting themselves spending 20 hours for a charitable cause. “When thinking about this challenge I really wanted to encompass what makes Twitch special for me. Then it became very simple. It’s people anonymously doing stuff for others. Going out of their way to do something nice or be there for someone,” Veldhuis said. “It’s a win-win contest as those who do not win a Pass will still feel like that have won by doing something they cherish, and people will have received something nice because of them.” Winners of each of the five Platinum Passes will earn a ticket to the $25,000 tournament plus an additional $5,000. Additionally, they will receive coaching and be mentored by the Ambassador who selected them. The PokerStars’ PSPC will take place January 6-10, 2019 during the 2019 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas.
  3. It’s not a matter of if online poker will be coming back to the state of Pennsylvania, it’s a matter of when. Currently, online poker giant PokerStars is the frontrunner to be the first to offer online poker players in Pennsylvania a chance to fire up tournaments and cash games in a regulated environment and you can bet that when they do PokerStars Mind Sports Ambassador Jennifer Shahade will be one of the very first to log on. Not only is Shahade a PokerStars ambassador, but she's also a two-time United States women’s chess champion, a poker player and commentator, podcast host, and a mom. She’s also a resident of Philadelphia and one who is ready to get back to the online grind. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] “I’m super excited to be in Philly during the launch of PokerStars in Pennsylvania and I feel fortunate that I am in one of the first states to regulate online poker, especially as a mom, I can play after I read my son a story," Shahade said. "The timing of online poker tournaments works so well for my schedule so I’m looking forward to the PokerStars PA launch.” It has been a long wait for prospective online poker players in the Keystone State. Nearly two years ago, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed the bill that allowed for the regulation and legalization of both online poker and sports betting. July 15 of this year was supposed to be the date when players would be able to get started, but that date came and went without a word. Even though many online gaming services have since launched, poker is not one of them. In recent weeks though, rumors have surfaced that PokerStars is close to testing their poker client and releasing it to the public. “I’m so excited to play on PokerStars from the comfort of my home,” Shahade said. “I can’t wait to bring back the thrill of Sunday evening poker and for that to be brought to players across Pennsylvania.” For Shahade, being both an ambassador for PokerStars and a Pennsylvania resident will place her in a key strategic role for a new, emerging PA online poker community. Shahade notes that the Keystone State has long been a breeding ground for some of the game's top poker players and the return of online poker will likely only contribute to that history. “There are already so many great poker pros from the Philly area, and we’ve had so many world champions and WSOP Main Event final tablists who hail from our parts, including [Scott] Blumstein and [Joe] McKeehen,” she said. “I think a lot of people players who previously lived in New Jersey to play online poker will consider PA as well, especially Philadelphia or Pittsburgh." Certainly, Shahade's excited, but it's not as though she has been just hanging around waiting for poker's return. Shahade spent time this summer in Las Vegas playing in the World Series of Poker, but she's also been receiving quite a bit of buzz over her new podcast, The Grid Poker Podcast. The Grid matches professional poker players with specific starting hands and the conversation dives into specific stories about those hands and what that means to the players. Her guest list reads like a who's who of the poker world including Nick Shulman, Jamie Kerstetter, Ryan Laplante, Lex Veldhuis, and more. “I came up with the idea for The Poker Grid on a sleepless night traveling with my family in the Bahamas for PCA. I was frustrated with the criticism that poker theory and GTO study is boring and is killing the game of poker,” she said. “Rather than shouting from the rooftops that math is beautiful and equilibrium is artistic, I needed a way to express that through content. So it occurred to me to host a podcast with an interview for every cell on the poker grid, an absurdist challenge that could also intrigue people beyond poker, interested in math, literature or art. The idea of using a GRID to improve ties into my passion for chess, where I also have a podcast, Ladies Knight, which celebrates some of the top women in our games.” It not only her guests that have memorable stories attached to specific starting hands. “A few months ago, I spoke about a hand with pocket threes at a sit-n-go at the WSOP, long before I played poker professionally, or worked with PokerStars," Shahade said. "Playing live poker was such a treat for me, so when I got heads-up, I refused to chop, even though my opponent asked me a few times. At a critical moment, I jammed all in with about 15 BBs. My opponent looked down at his cards and promised me that he has a pair and that he would call…or, we could stop the tourney right then and chop - as we were roughly equal in chips. “I said yes after doing some back-of-the-envelope calls, considering that his most frequent holding was deuces, but could easily have 44-66. After I agreed to the deal, I turned over pocket threes, he turned over the other two 3s, and we both roared. I admired his cleverness at getting me to agree to a deal. As with many hands on The Poker Grid, story meets strategy.” There’s going to be plenty of strategy for the Mind Sports ambassador to focus on when online poker finally takes off. She notes that she’s most looking forward to “getting in more volume” while expanding her own understanding of The Grid. “I want to play one session which I ‘play every hand”, except in this case ‘playing every hand’ won’t mean playing 100% of all possible hands, but playing each hand on the Grid at least once,” Shahade said. For a poker pro, navigating every single starting hand possibility could be a fun, exciting challenge. However, that’s not her advice for Pennsylvania players who pick up poker as a new hobby over the next year, of which there could be many of given the new regulated market for PA online poker. “Start small,” she said. “The thrill is still there even if you don’t jump into the biggest tournaments and don’t forget to account for re-entries in your budgeting. “Bankroll management is key to ensure you stay on track and enjoy the experience. Poker is more fun with friends. Find a community of poker players or start a chat group with current poker friends and share interesting hands. PokerStars has many channels that give helpful advice for beginners right the way up to regular players. “The PokerStars School is a good place for some valuable information and they have loads of other fun and complimentary content like Twitch streams, videos, and podcasts, including my own. Ultimately, just start playing, you learn from experience and you can gain experience for very little online.”
  4. Two years and five days after Governor Tom Wolf made online poker legal in Pennsylvania (along with sports betting and casino), the first-ever online multi-table tournament in state history wrapped up in a somewhat anti-climatic fashion. 'SugarDaddyPA' and 'Stonks_Are_Up' agreed to a deal that saw each player turn their $5 buy-in into at least $110.88. In the end, 'SugarDaddyPA' outlasted the 140-entry field to win $121.67 while 'Stonks_Are_Up' wound up pocketing $110.88 as the runner-up. The two agreed to the deal just after 'LuckyIrishMan1' busted in third place, earning the scheduled $74.99 payout. At the time the players agreed to a deal, 'SugarDaddyPA' held a nearly 2-1 chip lead. The $5 buy-in event had a Turbo structure and drew 88 unique entries plus an additional 52 re-entries. A total of 23 players cashed. Team PokerStars Ambassador Jennifer Shahade managed to sneak into the money, finishing 14th for $10.37. The tournament was one of 12 scheduled for the first day of the PokerStars PA soft launch and took almost 90 minutes to complete.

  5. Nominations for the second annual Global Poker Awards were announced on Friday with popular poker personality Joey Ingram leading the way with four nominations. The Global Poker Awards, slated to take place at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas on March 6, celebrates the poker industry by recognizing the game of poker's top talent both on the felt and behind the scenes.

  6. Sunday was another big day in the 2020 PokerStars PASCOOP with nine of the ten scheduled events crushing their advertised guarantees and the PokerStars PA ambassador Jennifer Shahade walking away as the biggest winner of the day. Event #28-H ($200 NLHE) was another special edition of the weekly Sunday Special with 422 players pushing the prize pool to $78,492, more than $28,000 above the $50K guarantee. After eight hours of play, the final three players, which included PokerStars PA pro Jennifer Shahade, agreed to an even-money three-way chop, leaving an additional $1,500 and the PASCOOP title on the felt to be fought for. Shahade, who was streaming the entire final table on her Twitch channel, navigated her way through a prolonged three-handed battle to eventually get heads-up with ‘Jonny LeGOAT’. In back-to-back hands, she came out on the winning end of a flip, then faded a straight draw to finally take home the win for a $11,527 payday. ‘Jonny LeGOAT’, who was the official runner-up, and third-place finisher ‘BMM2019’ both picked up $10,277 for their part in the deal. Once the three players struck the deal, Shahade promised on her live stream to donate $300 of her winnings to a charity providing COVID-19 relief. In other action, ‘TheBigSlick’ went the distance in Event #26-H ($150 NLHE Marathon) outlasting the 314 total entries to take home the $8,122.06 first-place prize and a PASCOOP title. Crossing the line in second place was ‘wnunley’ who earned $5,953.26 as the runner-up. ‘pigsoverus’ claimed the Marathon’s bronze medal and added $4,363.72 to their bankroll. [ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] In the lower buy-in Event #26-L ($15 NLHE Marathon), ‘idafoldbitch’ took down the first of their two PASCOOP titles of the day. Surviving the field of 757 runners, ‘idafoldbitch’ claimed $1,756.19 for first. ‘Jessielou660’ wrapped up as the runner-up, earning $1,274.01 for their efforts. Finally, ‘36Benny’ just missed out on a four-figure payday, turning their $15 into $924.55 for third place. Event #27-H ($50 NLHE 6-Max, PKO) bested its $22,000 guarantee by more than $5,000 and ‘V&Elephant80’ took home the biggest share after winning $2,051.33 for first place, plus an additional $2,387.72 in bounties for a total score of $4,439.05. ‘JakesFriend’ settled for the role of runner-up claiming $2,050.99 and an additional $344.93 in bounties. It was ‘Sennettor’ who took the last step on the podium, earning $1,227.92 for third and grabbing another $162.97 in bounties. ‘EpsteinDKH’ was the eventual winner of Event #27-L ($5 NLHE 6-Max, PKO), turning their $5 buy-in into a $264.68 first-place payday plus an additional $227.36 in bounties for a total of over $490. ‘ziggy21444’ picked up second place for a combined cash of $352.98 while ‘Leon6613’ added $9.48 in bounties to his $153.74 third-place prize. The Mini Special, Event #28-L ($20 NLHE), saw ‘idafoldbitch’ pick up their second PASCOOP title of the day. They survived the 1,062 entry field, the largest of the day, to take home another $3,137.09. The two victories netted them $4,893.28 in earnings on for a combined buy-in of $35. ‘BlueWaffleFire’ finished in second place for $2,254.91 and ‘crzynoob12’ cashed for $1,621.29 in third.
