  1. We are seeing a lot of new names on both regulated Nevada poker sites for the first time and wonder if this is the result of the Full Tilt Poker remission process. We will try to see if any of these players are willing to share their stories with us. WSOP.com ran three of its $3,000 events as scheduled. On Wednesday, the site ran a special satellite for two $1,500 seats to any 2014 World Series of Poker $1,500 event. All of their events exceeded the guarantees. There were 262 runners vying for 33 prizes totaling $15,975. The players with the highest valued prizes won were PokerStars and VegasJF, each winning a $1,500 seat to an upcoming 2014 WSOP event. It was PokerStars' first win of the year and VegasJF's second. Neither of these players was seen at a final table at all last year. The player with the highest cash win was SuGaRaY71 with a payout of $1,268, taking down Thursday night's event. This is SuGaRay71's fifth time cashing in these major events this year. He is starting to show consistency in making the final tables, having first been seen on December. This week, Ultimate Poker held four tournaments, the $2,500 Nightly events. There were 120 runners generating a prize pool of $12,512 and paying a total of 19 spots. The highest cash this week went to POSTA for $1,474. The last time we saw POSTA win an event was in the UPC2 series last year. At that time, POSTA took down Event #13 for $23,878. The new guy on the block on Ultimate Poker to keep an eye on is The Agnostic, who is showing up at the final tables of the Big 25 Series as well as the $2,500 nightly events. The following are the tournament results for this week from Ultimate Poker and WSOP.com, the two legal and regulated online poker sites in Nevada.

  2. In the Sunday $10K Guaranteed on Ultimate Poker in recent weeks, PocketFives' own Aaron lvkid7Bass banked $2,900 for finishing first out of 84 players. Bass is a regular contributor to PocketFives' Nevada poker community and so we wanted to get the inside scoop on the first regulated online poker market in the US and one of its frequent players. PocketFives: How are you feeling about your $2,900 cash in the Ultimate Poker $10K? Aaron Bass: I'm ecstatic. It's a tournament and I don't get to play a lot of those, so it's good to take down a big one when you have a chance. I don't have a bigger bankroll to play the $100 buy-ins regularly either. Over the summer, I won an Ultimate Poker Summer Series event and along with it came a watch, which has gotten delayed and so they sent me a $100 ticket instead. That's what I used to play the $10K. PocketFives: How have the tournament fields been in Nevada? Aaron Bass: The first few weeks were the peak in terms of traffic. The Sunday tournaments were getting 150 or more players and, since then, it has dropped off. In the nightly tournaments, the attendance is holding steady. The numbers have been steady for a few months now. Until Nevada can get compacts with more states besides Delaware, I don't see the fields going up that much. PocketFives: What trends have you noticed so far between WSOP.com and Ultimate Poker, two of the three regulated sites in Nevada? Aaron Bass: I have seen more tournament play going to WSOP.com. I think Ultimate has the lockdown on Omaha. Ultimate is better for sit and gos, whereas WSOP.com is better for tournaments. PocketFives: Real Gaming just soft launchedin Nevada. What do you hope to see from subsequent sites that join the market? Aaron Bass: I hope when they open, they have promotions geared toward players who haven't played much. If they can bring in players who don't know online poker is back in Nevada, that will help. I don't see Nevada alone having a lot of growth unless we get compacts with more states. PocketFives: Do Nevada residents know that regulated online poker exists? Aaron Bass: I have 10 friends who are recreational players who play live. Out of those 10, four or five have played online and bought in for a couple hundred dollars.
  3. This weekend in New Jersey online poker, Borgata/PartyPokerran its $10K nightly guarantee.

The Borgata/Party $50K Guarantee Sunday Major experienced technical difficulties with 12 players left. This resulted in the tournament stopping and the remaining 12 players getting an even chip-chop of the prize pool. As a reminder, Borgata Poker results are now being tracked by PocketFives dating back to February 28 and will count toward the Online Poker Rankings for New Jersey players.

  7. New Jersey online poker is in full swing and, with 100 days of operation under its belt, WSOP.com has released data highlighting the enormous impact that mobile will play in the burgeoning market. The well-known brand, run by Caesars Interactive Entertainment, found that 26% of all play came from mobile devices or tablets, with gamblers spending an average of 43 minutes on Caesars' various online casino websites. Poker players at WSOP.com spent even more time on the site, averaging 76 minutes. The data won't come as a surprise to analysts and executives who have long predicted that mobile devices would play a key role in the industry. "Mobile applications will play an enormous piece of the puzzle in online wagering, which is why we are so positive and see so much upside in the months ahead," saidJoe Lupo, Senior VP of Borgata. While analysts have tempered their online gaming revenue expectations for New Jersey's first year, casino officials say that the current numbers don't take into account the potential for mobile growth, which is only starting to happen. So far, a number of New Jersey casinos offer online poker via mobile apps, including 888 Poker, WSOP.com, PartyPoker, and Borgata Poker (mobile client for Borgata shown below). Operators like the Tropicana, Trump Plaza, and Trump Taj Mahal offer mobile betting on casino table games. One issue hampering growth is cell phone usage. Due to the fact that players must be verified by geo-location software, most mobile apps only allow players to gamble when connected to WiFi. That means players hoping to access sites on the go using 3G or 4G cellular networks will be out of luck for the time being. Lisa Spengler, spokeswoman for the DGE, recently told the Associated Press that the Division is working with geo-location vendors to provide a solution that would allow players to connect through such networks in the future. The trend toward the use of mobile devices in i-gaming is not limited to New Jersey and can be seen in the UK market as well. Gambling operator William Hill recently reported that its mobile betting revenues increased 298% from 2012 to 2013. Paddy Power saw a similar increase in usage, while Betfairhas reported that mobile betting was up 64% year-over-year. Patrick Kennedy, Paddy Power's CEO, believes that 90% of industry growth will come from mobile. With smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices so pervasive, it's easy to see how mobile gaming could see tremendous growth. According to Nielsen, 60% of US mobile subscribers used smartphones as of June 2013. "With tablet growth increasing and smartphone adoption continuing to reach more and more, it is clear the future of the majority of gaming experiences will be on these devices," said Caesars' Seth Palansky.

PocketFives: What are your favorite New Jersey online poker sites to play and why? Jake Schafer: I play on WSOP.com the most. I like WSOP's and 888 Poker's software the best. I get disconnected and also have geo-location issues a lot with Borgata Poker, PartyPoker, and Ultimate Poker, so I mainly just play on WSOP.com and 888 for now. PocketFives: What has been your most memorable cash on the New Jersey websites? Jake Schafer: The most memorable win would be shipping the WSOP.com $10,000 Weekly Sunday Guarantee. I have final tabled all of the bigger buy-in tournaments on WSOP, but to close out a win in the Sunday $10,000 Guarantee was very memorable. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your success playing online poker? Jake Schafer: Most my success on New Jersey sites has come from years of playing and having experience with the ups and downs of poker. The more you play and the more hands you see, the better you will be. Reading books on poker helps, but to really get better and improve your game, you need to put in the time and volume.

  15. In Nevada this week, WSOP.com ran three of its four $3,000 events as scheduled. On Wednesday, the site ran a special satellite for two $1,500 seats to the 2014 World Series of Poker. All of the $3,000 daily events exceeded their guarantees. There were 231 runners with a total prize pool of $16,000. The players with the highest valued prizes won were BShriever5 and butters, each getting a $1,500 seat to a 2014 WSOP event. BShriever5 continued to add on to his number of cashes, now at 21, and has won over $19,000 to date, not counting his five cashes in the lower guarantee events. Not to be overlooked, butters has cashed only 10 times so far, but one of those was for a $10,000 entry to the WSOP Main Event. This brings butters' total cashes to just over $20,000 to date this year. The player with the highest cash win was jdcandidate, with a payout of $1,392 for taking down Monday's event. jdcandidate took second place in Thursday's event for $621. Since arriving on the scene on March 17, jdcandidate has had two wins and four second place finishes when playing at a final table. With over $5,500 in prizes, he is a player to keep an eye on this year. Also keep an eye on VPIHokie1970, as he is starting to heat up again. With four more cashes, including a first place finish in the last two weeks, he now has more than $29,000 in winnings on 31 final tables in the larger events. He has also been seen cashing in the lower guarantee events. This week, Ultimate Poker held four tournaments, the $2,500 Nightly events. There were 121 runners generating a prize pool of $11,511 and paying a total of 121 spots. The highest cash this week went to bansman, winning $1,228 in the Monday night $2,500 event.

  16. Bob s.l. halperTaylor (pictured) out of Garwood, New Jersey has had much success in online poker before and after the launch of regulated poker in the Garden State. He has close to $200,000 in recorded cashes online. He finished in third place in the WSOP.comMini Fest Main Event $25,000 Guarantee for $2,250, won the WSOP $5,000 Guarantee for $1,452, and finished in second place in the 888 PokerBig Sunday $10,000 Guarantee for $1,800, among other scores. Visit PocketFives' New Jersey poker community for the latest. PocketFives: What are your favorite New Jersey online poker sitesto play and why? Bob Taylor: I currently play most of my games on WSOP.com and 888 Poker. I like the software and structure of the tournaments on both sites. I also like Betfair and enjoyed grinding out the small guarantee tournaments on that site just after the launch. PocketFives: What got you started playing poker? How long have you been playing? Bob Taylor: I have been playing poker since I was very young. Growing up, poker was the social activity in my family. Saturday nights often involved my extended family members sitting around a kitchen table playing poker for fun and small profits. Poker games were always going on among my friends; poker keeps me connected to my friends even as our lives have gone in different directions. I still play in regular games with my high school friends and our holiday party is the Festivus Invitational, an all-night poker game that is the highlight of the year. The only disappointment in my poker career is that I am not yet a Festivus champion and my friends always remind me of that fact. My friends began playing online poker in the early 2000s. After watching their success, I started playing in December 2006 in freerolls and soon switched to real money tourneys. I won the first MTT I played on PokerStars and have been part of the online poker community ever since. I got to play regularly against the world's most successful players in MTTs and SNGs until Black Friday sent me back full-time to my career. I am so happy to have the opportunity to play online poker again in New Jersey. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your current online success? Bob Taylor: Once I decided I wanted to improve my game, I studied the game. I reviewed my hand histories and watched training videos. After busting out of my own games, I would pull up a top player's tables and follow their play. I would watch JohnnyBax(pictured) and Annette_15in MTTs or Stevie444or Jorg95 in SNGs to try to understand why they were making certain plays in certain circumstances. After a while, I would try to fit some of these plays into my own game and some of them stuck. PocketFives was a great place to develop my game. Once I gained the courage to start posting hands, I became a better player. The responses within threads would force me to focus on why I made a certain play rather than if I won or lost a hand. I love discussing poker strategy and was glad to find a community on PocketFives that felt the same way. Also, online poker is a solitary experience. It helps to have the support and competition of a community of like-minded people to get through the grind. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  18. We caught up to PocketFives member ZenEnso, whose name is Brandon Leopard (pictured). He plays on Ultimate Poker and WSOP.comas ZenSatori. He is now a Nevada resident, having moved from Alabama just two months prior to Black Friday. Leopard has cashed five times on each site this year, giving him earnings of over $5,500 in the larger guarantee events. He is also seen at other guarantee events, cashing 13 times and taking down five of those events outright. Visit PocketFives' Nevada poker community for the latest news and discussion from Nevada players. PocketFives: Do you play on both Nevada sites? Do you have any preference? Brandon Leopard: WSOP.com hands-down. The software alone on Ultimate Poker is enough to avoid it. PocketFives: What do you base your current successes online on? Brandon Leopard: After I moved here and Black Friday happened, I kind of abandoned poker, playing cash games occasionally and focusing on playing music and other endeavors. I was on the verge of hitting something substantial, so Black Friday was quite a divergent point in my life. When the buzz about internet poker started back, I refocused. It was a major reason I moved here in the first place, so I have been making an effort to play the game as more than a hobby, especially considering I don't have too many things holding me back like an overly demanding job or children. PocketFives: What do you like best about playing online poker? Brandon Leopard: The fact that I can play multiple tournaments all at once while listening to music. I seem to play my best with at least three or four tournaments going. Adjusting to live might be a bit of a challenge this summer. Sundays used to be my favorite day of the week before Black Friday and they are again becoming my favorite day, albeit not quite as exciting. PocketFives: How did you choose your player name? Brandon Leopard: Zen is a Japanese form of Buddhism that came originally from China (Chan buddhism). It iterates non-attachment and enlightenment through meditation and expression of your true self, as opposed to other religions or traditions that adhere to dogma or doctrine. Satori is a Japanese word for awakening or enlightenment. An Enso is a circle drawn in one brushstroke, representing the drawer's true self, and is used as part of Zen practice by some practitioners. PocketFives: Is there anything else you would like to add? Brandon Leopard: Thanks for the opportunity to be interviewed by one of my favorite websites! And good luck to all P5ers this summer!

  20. According to iGaming Businessand other reports, the regulated online poker sites in Nevada have amassed $8.5 million in revenue since their inception. Ultimate Poker, the first regulated online poker site in Nevada, launched on the last day of April 2013, nearly one year ago. Last September, WSOP.comjoined in the party, and in February, Real Gaming, which is affiliated with South Point, came online in a soft launch. According to iGaming Business, "Despite the introduction of a new online poker operator in February, the three websites were only able to generate $824,000 between them during the month." PokerScout.com, which tracks cash game traffic on the world's major sites, including Nevada, shows WSOP.com in the lead in the desert state with a seven-day running average of 110 real money ring game players and a 24-hour peak of 199. Ultimate Poker has a seven-day average of 70 cash game players and a 24-hour peak of 160. The three sites tallied $824,000 in online gambling revenue in February, according to iGaming Business, much higher than Delaware's three online gambling sites, which drew a scant $73,000. The same news source noted that New Jersey, which unlike Nevada allows many forms of online gambling other than poker, saw its sites rake in $10.3 million in revenue in February. PocketFives began tracking scheduled, non-satellite tournaments on WSOP.com in Nevada with at least 20 players, at least a $0.01 buy-in, and at least $100 in the prize pool for our famed Worldwide Rankings.

  21. PocketFives Member manifest, aka Todd Jackson (pictured), is following his poker dreams and recently won a seat in the World Series of Poker Main Event on WSOP.com. His WSOP.com user name is orono, named after his alma mater, the University of Maine at Orono. Manifest was the name of the garage band his friends and he played in growing up. When not playing poker, his other favorite games are NLH14 and Battlefield 4 on PlayStation 2. A former upstate New Yorker, Todd now resides in Las Vegas. We had a chance to talk with him. Visit PocketFives' Nevada poker community for the latest news and discussion from Nevada players. PocketFives: How excited are you to be playing in this year's WSOP Main Event? Todd Jackson: I'm really excited. It's the opportunity that every poker player dreams about. I've played it two other times and haven't made it out of Day 2, so I'm looking forward to another shot at it. The fact that I'm freerolling really reduces the stress of it. PocketFives: What are you doing to prepare? Todd Jackson: Ninety-nine percent of my play is in Limit Hold'em, so I really have to hit the books and work on my No Limit tournament game. It's nice that I have all of this time to prepare and I really want to give myself a shot at a deep run. I have a pretty clear sense of the things I need to work on. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your current online success? Todd Jackson: I've definitely been running well lately, so that always helps. But, in general, I think I have a pretty good work ethic. It's tough to put in a ton of hours because games aren't always running, but I subscribe to multiple training sites and read a lot of books. Players are always getting better and I'm fighting hard to stay ahead of the curve. Before a big tournament, I’ll usually try to get a workout in, eat a good meal, and meditate. PocketFives: Is there anyone who helped change how you approach the game of poker? Todd Jackson: Not any one person really. I've never had a group of poker friends to talk about the game with. So, most of my approach has been developed through forums, training sites, books, and good old trial and error. Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?

  24. According to the recurring Scouting Reportfrom PokerScout, the last four weeks saw the needle move in New Jersey somewhat due to a special promotion from the PartyPoker/Borgata PokerNetwork. After the network's 25 millionth hand was dealt in March, the site geared up almost immediately for its 30 millionth hand promotion. That 30 millionth hand was reached on Sunday, but it didn't seem to drive the traffic the network had hoped for. Throughout the day on Sunday, the key hands drew in some action, but overall, PokerScout noted that liquidity peaked at 500 cash game players. The 30 millionth hand saw the winner take a $10,000 prize, but according to PokerScout, "The players just didn't seem to be very interested." Party/Borgata has been able to control the market for the most part, taking in 43% of the action in the state since the market's launch last November. Caesars Entertainment's WSOP.com has risen up to challenge Party/Borgata, holding 32% of the traffic. These two rooms are basically the "big dogs," especially when the other rooms in the Garden State's online poker industry are put in the picture. The All American Poker Network (888 Poker) has been able to move into a solid third place in the market, taking a 23% share. Ultimate Poker, which is associated with Trump Taj Mahal, has seen its numbers fall to 1% of the market share. The March numbers overall for New Jersey, one of two states that allow full intrastate online casino gaming, showed that while people might not be heading to the virtual poker rooms, they are taking advantage of the other gaming options. The outlets mentioned above were able to bring in $8.6 million in revenuefor the month, an increase over a $7.1 million win rate in February. Of that total, $3.2 million was generated by online poker, virtually the same as February's numbers ($3.1 million), but slightly better than the PokerScout report's projection of $3.08 million. Breaking down the revenue in the online gaming scene, Party/Borgata was at the head of the pack with $4.4 million in overall online casino revenues and Caesars/888 pulled in $3.7 million. The Tropicana/Virgin venture was third in the market, pulling in $1.9 million overall, while Trump/Ultimate ($682,639), the Golden Nugget ($677,746) and Trump/Betfair ($509,556) rounded out the field. In addition to running satellites for the World Poker Tour World Championship that begins next week, Party/Borgata will begin the New Jersey Championship of Online Poker (NJCOP) on April 19, guaranteeing $600,000 in prize pools over its 15-event schedule. There's even a special NJCOP leaderboard for PocketFivers that you can opt into by clicking here. Caesars is gearing up for the World Series of Poker at the end of May by offering satellites to the Main Event and $1,500 events. Check out WSOP.com for more details.

  25. New Jersey poker pro Steve Scales (pictured), who plays under the screen name Turb0licious, loves the fact that legal online poker in his home state is growing more and more every day. On March 23, he won the WSOP.com $25,000 Guarantee Sunday Major for $7,040. On the same night, he also made the final table of the WSOP $10,000 Guarantee Sunday Weekly, his third weekend in a row doing so. He has over $150,000 in live cashes and won a WSOP Circuit ring in December 2012 at Harrah's Atlantic City. PocketFives: Congrats on your win in the WSOP.com $25K Sunday Major win. Tell us how you're feeling. Steve Scales: Thanks. I appreciate the kind words. Put it this way, I won't lie and say I'm feeling terrible! In all seriousness, it feels great to win WSOP's $25K Major right here in New Jersey where I reside. I just recently started playing on the New Jersey sites, so I have only played the WSOP.com $25K twice, finishing 14th and now first, so it's an awesome feeling for sure. I feel the New Jersey online poker market is taking off and I am confident it's only going to get better from here. That excites me as a professional poker player. To have legal online poker right here in my home state of New Jersey is an awesome, long overdue feeling. PocketFives: Do any hands from the $25K stick out to you? Steve Scales: We can take a closer look at one hand I remember that I perhaps could have taken a different approach to. I won't say my play was wrong (others might disagree), but I will say that there were options on what to do. We were at a 1,000-chip big blind, UTG+2 opened to 3,200, I raised to 7,800 in the cutoff, and he called. We saw a 5-7-10 two-heart flop and he snap-shoved for 9,800. I called and he had J-10 of spades and rivered another 10 to beat my Q-Q. To some, it's a snap shove on that UTG+2 open with Q-Q and I don't disagree with that. However, I feel we had options. First, we could 3bet shove and most likely take it down pre-flop. Or, we could 3bet and open the button and blinds up to potentially seeing a 4bet spot and acting on that, which is great for our hand. We could even have the original raiser come over the top thinking we're weak, which also plays great for our hand. PocketFives: Tell us about making the final table of the WSOP $10K Guarantee three Sundays in a row. Steve Scales: It used to be that every weekend the pressure mounted in that tournament for me; now, I enjoy it. I like the current rush it's giving me, as it drives me to constantly play better and chase the win in that tournament. It's a great tournament that exceeds the $10,000 guaranteed prize pool and I see the turnouts only getting better from here. Maybe I'll get it done this weekend, we'll see! PocketFives: How did you get started in poker originally and why was it appealing? Steve Scales: I started playing home games in high school a few days a week. There was a pretty big group of us who played and we would alternate who hosted the game each night. We played small-stakes cash and a tournament or two each month. It was a ton of fun and poker really grabbed my interest the more I played. From there, I only wanted to get better. I picked up the game a lot more in college and played some juicy underground games in Erie, Pennsylvania, where I went to college. A lot of my close friends were poker players in college, so I lucked out big-time meeting the right people. The games were good. I was doing well and having a ton of fun meeting new people. PocketFives: To what do you attribute your current online success? Steve Scales: Good question. I feel I take a different approach to the game, somewhat outside the norm of others, and that separates me from a lot of people. I will sometimes take unconventional lines in hands that others might disagree with and I'm fine with that. I'm constantly changing up my style of play when and where I feel it's in my best interest. I guess in a way I have always felt I had my own style. Visit PocketFives' New Jersey poker community for the latest from the Garden State! Want the latest poker headlines and interviews?
