Poker News Flashes 10/2/10

In case you missed them in our daily News Flash, here's the rewind for your reading pleasure:

Southern Women's Show

Everybody...especially the ladies that want to become more involved in poker, join the High heels Poker Tour at Booth #511 at the Orange Park Kennel Club, Jacksonville FL, for give-a-ways, introductory poker lessons, and freeroll drawings to the HHPT Ladies Event that will be played on Saturday 10/23/10 at 1PM (at the same club) with a $150 buy-in.  There is a charge for admission to the women's show which runs October 21st-24th. Buy a Ticket!

Carlos Mortensen Captains Spanish World Team Poker

Spain, which did not participate in the inaugural World Team Poker event, has now filed its roster and captaining the team is WSOP Main Event Winner Carlos Mortensen. The teams consists of Raul Paez, Oscar Blanco, Cayetano Garcia, Santiago Terrazas, and Leo Margets.  Margets finished in 27th place at 2009 WSOP Main Event, holding the honor of being the last woman standing and taking home a prize of $352,832.

Hitting the Nuts


It's a world premiere - of a sort - wrapped around a 2009 Scott County, Indiana, Texas Holdem Poker Championship, perhaps aptly named as "Hitting the Nuts" and dubbed as a 'locally produced mockumentary which could mean, literally, anything.  Written and directed by Joe Boyd, a teaching pastor (does prayer help at the poker table?); you'll find it at the Cincinnati Film Festival.

UB Poker Perfect Play

All during the month of October you'll find fantastic contests and micro-stakes tourneys in The Perfect Play at UB Poker.  The return of the Perfect 10 and the launch of the Perfect 3 will give you over $100K in Tournament Leaderboard prize money to shoot at and the Perfect Play also dishes up other goodies that you won't find anywhere else.  This whole month is geared toward the player with the small bankroll and guaranteed to add to your bankroll.  Make it happen!

Call the Floorman

Should we ask what happened?  Good ideas gone bad, perhaps good ideas with no capital behind them?  Every business has its success stories and failures.  This show apparently never made it off the ground but it would be interesting to see how they picked the audience and what type of questions were asked and who provided the questions to be asked.  Poker is more than just a game - proven by the media that gears up for big events and the advertising that go into making the show happen.

Hard Rock Hotel Macau

Reservations for the Hard Rock Hotel during the duration of the Asian Poker Tour 2010 are available at a discounted rate, exclusively for poker players at the Hard Rock Hotel Macau. You must indicate that you are participating in the APT and produce proof - like the APT Tournament Receipt - in order to qualify for the discount.  Once that's done, prepare to ROCK on at the APT and enjoy all the amenities the Hard Rock Hotel has to offer...and win the tournament, of course.
