Online Poker Site Disqualifies WCOOP Winner

Online poker site has released a statement after weeks of rumour and debate disqualifying the original winner of its World Championship Of Online Poker (WCOOP) Main Event.

The Kahnawake-licensed site said that, following a two-week investigation that ended on October 1, it had acted on allegations of irregularities in the activities of 'TheV0id', who won over a million dollars at the recent WCOOP, and stripped the player of their winnings. It stated that the remaining players would be moved up one spot and collect the appropriate winnings.

"The investigation into the WCOOP Main Event has now been concluded," read the statement from "We have determined, based on the totality of evidence, that the tournament winner, TheV0id, was in breach of the Poker Stars Terms of Service. In the interests of game integrity, TheV0id has been disqualified from first place."

"All other WCOOP Main Event prize winners in addition to the player who originally bubbled in 415th place will, therefore, advance one place in the prize pool. The necessary financial adjustments to reflect the revised tournament places will be made within the next 24 hours. Please note that we are unable to release further details of this investigation, for reasons of confidentiality and privacy."

TheV0id became the winner of the Main Event after a 22-hour battle with second-placed ka$ino. However, soon after the win, accusations of irregularities arose, questioning the validity of the win. These centred on the use of two accounts set up by an alleged well-known and successful professional poker player who was thought to have used an account ostensibly set up for someone else on several leading poker forums after his own account was eliminated.

Extreme Poker Sydney a Real Cliff Hanger

Hugo Asenjo Wins and Walks -- Losers Take 90m Vertical Drop

Following 35 knot winds yesterday, there were clear skies yet blustery conditions today as Sydney played host to the fourth International tournament of Extreme Poker suspended over the cliffs of North Head, Manly opposite the Harbour Bridge. Perched on a platform, six players faced a 90 meter vertical drop if they lost their chips. But it was only Hugo Asenjo from Sydney that was permitted to walk off the platform on to solid land as he took the title of Extreme Poker Champion.

Extreme Poker’s ‘Cliff Hanger’ is not for the feint hearted! It’s all about playing poker under extreme conditions - that was hard for Mathew Horton who was first to loose all chips and to take the 90m plunge to the rocks and ocean below. Soon to follow was Cameron Stewart from Melbourne and Matt ‘The Rat’ Delbridge whose family emigrated from Cornwall, England. Donna Conlan, the only female in the game was holding on to her position but was soon literally dropped from the table leaving just Andrew Cha Cha and Hugo Asenjo. Hugo had a massive lead with 90% of the chips. Andrew Cha Cha fought back valiantly but after three hands he was dealt a vicious blow and had to take the ultimate leap.

Hugo Asenjo’s winning hand of two pairs (Jacks & Nines) will see him participate in the Extreme Poker Underwater Final 2007, joining other players from around the world. The game will take place on the Ocean Floor in the Caribbean in November. “I’m surprised and ecstatic to win, the fear of having to jump off the platform kept me going with grit and determination – and it worked… now for my next challenge I need to learn to scuba dive and get myself a passport!”

Peter Marcus, Founder of Extreme Poker has taken the tournament to the Caribbean, the Arctic Circle and over the Nevada Desert, but today Australia upped the ante “Sydney, has been the most extreme game yet, and exactly what I had expected from a country that invented extreme sports. We’re definitely coming back next year… we just need to find the challenge… and would love ideas from the public which can be registered at”

Another Reason I Wish I Was in Barcelona This Week

I've already whined about all the fun stuff and interesting people I'll be missing by not going to Barcelona for the two big igaming conferences this week, EiG and CAP Euro.

Now I hear Tila Tequila is going to be there. I escorted Tila around London when she was there for the last CAP event so I know the fun I'm missing!

The MySpace, and now MTV, star arrives in Barcelona this week to meet with top online poker and casino affiliates. Tila, whose new bisexual reality TV show premiers October 9 on MTV in America, will be on hand at her booth during the CAP Euro conference to promote her online casino site to industry affiliates and insiders.

Tila will be using what can only be described as the MTV Promotional Steam Train currently in motion for her new reality show, to gain more visibility for her already successful casino/poker site. She'll be talking to the guys at the conference about her love of poker, why the casino site is an important part of her growing empire, and her future plans to grow her gaming business.

iGaming events are notorious for parties and Barcelona is known for its nightlife. Tila and her entourage will no doubt be out on the town throughout the week.

A lot has happened since the last time Tila partied in London with her affiliate partners at the launch of her Playtech-powered online casino and poker room,

“I’d never been to London before. That was a crazy trip!” said the woman Time Magazine dubbed ‘The Madonna of MySpace’. “Poker people know how to win and how to party. I can’t wait – bring it on!”

Tila Tequila has since launched her single, “I Love U”, on iTunes and has been on the covers of Penthouse, Maxim and Black Men magazines. And her new MTV show, A Shot at Love With Tila Tequila, is very Tila. She hopes to further expand the Tila Tequila brand with this clever venture.

The LA Times states: “MTV may once have been about songs, but it has always been about spectacle, whether of the political, socially conscious, crassly consumerist or just plain sleazy variety. A Shot at Love may manage all of the above”.

See you next time Tila ;)
