You can tell summer is on its way, as the beginning of the MLB season kicked off this week. It couldn’t have come at a better time either as online games have been in a lull the last two weeks or so in the absence of Isildur1. If your a baseball nut or just looking to mix up your gambling habits you should check out Draftday. They do daily fantasy leagues where you will choose a team, join a league that is ran sit n go style, and collect your winnings. They have games ranging from the micros to higher stakes games. If baseball doesn’t do it for you, they have basketball leagues as well. Its a fun and cheap way to get more involved in the games without having to commit to a fantasy league long-term.
While we have not had the wild sessions we were becoming accustomed to in March, we have seen plenty of sessions from Ilari Fin with mixed results, but no major swings in either direction. This week also brought the return of Ben86. Since Ben is one of the few players still willing to play high stakes PLO and NLHE he was able to get plenty of action and ran pretty well also. All together at last count, he was able to cross the 500k mark in profits for the last 7 days. That’s a pretty solid week considering the low traffic among the high stakes games this week.
Premier League also wrapped up yesterday. The final 8 players battled but in the end Scott Seiver managed to overtake Dan “Jungleman” Cates in heads up play to secure the first place prize of 500k. You can check out what the final two players had to say afterward here: Scott Seiver Interview and Dan Cates Interview. The Party Poker festivities are not quite over yet, however, as the Big Game VI is now currently running. They are streaming the whole event live and Tony G’s mouth has yet to stop running so don’t forget to stop by and check that out as well!
