Angelina Rich: From Fashion Designer to Pkv Poker Pro

 

 

I first noticed Angelina Rich’s name last year, when she won the Women’s Event at EPT San Remo. But at the same venue history was made with Victoria Coren becoming the first two-time EPT-champion, and all of my attention was focused on Coren’s achievement – and Rich faded into the background.

 

This year though, it’s been impossible to ignore the former fashion designer and her accomplishments at the felt. At the end of 2014 Rich hadn’t even made it to the top 100 of the Global Poker Index Player of the Year Ladies. This year she sits in 12th place!

 

First Rich won the Terminator Event at the Aussie Millions for $27,255 in January, and then she outlasted nearly 2,000 players in The Mid-State Poker Tour Main Event in Las Vegas this summer, taking home $215,815 for the win. Just recently she finished in 11th place of the WSOPE Oktoberfest Event in Berlin for $15,384 and in 10th place in a Hyper Turbo Event at EPT Malta for $1,567.

 

This impressive run made me curious, and I caught up with Angelina Rich to hear more about her poker career, women in poker and her life as a full-time grinder.

 

First and foremost, congrats with an amazing year. Last year you went deep in a couple of tournaments and you won the Women’s Event at EPT San Remo, but this year’s been absolutely crazy! You won an event at the Aussie Millions. You took down The Mid-State Poker Tour Main Event, and just two weeks ago you went deep in a couple of events at the WSOPE and EPT Malta. What is going on?

“Thanks! Overall it has been an extremely successful year for me. I would attribute my success to doing a lot of …

BLACKJACK BASIC RULES. BEGINNER’S TOGEL HONGKONG COURSE

 

 

The game of Blackjack (or 21) is a very simple game to play. Each player must make a bet in one of the positions (or boxes) marked on the table. The player then receives two cards initially which make up a “Hand”. These two cards are added together and the player decides whether to call for additional cards or stay with the ones already given.

The idea is to reach a total of 21 or as near to 21 as possible without exceeding 21, players may not take cards on any total of 21. If the players total exceeds 21, then that hand is lost (or “bust”) and the player will lose the bet. The Croupier will also take cards until a minimum total of 17 is reached. If the player’s total of a hand is higher than that of the Croupier – the player wins; if the total of the Croupier’s cards is higher than that of the player – the Croupier wins. If the total of both the player and the Croupier is the same – nobody wins or loses. For the purposes of counting the totals, all cards are counted at face value, with the exception of Aces, which may be counted as 1 or 11, except where a total of 21 can be achieved when an Ace will always count as 11. All picture cards (Kings, Queens and Jacks) are counted as 10. A “Blackjack” consists of two cards only, an Ace and Ten-value card, and counts as 21. Blackjack can only be obtained on the fist two cards given to any box, and is paid at odds of 3 to 2. All other winning hands are paid Even Money (1 to 1). Blackjack beats all other hands except another Blackjack, which would be …

Poker Players Alliance to Hit Togel Hongkong Vegas During WSOP

 

 

I joined the Poker Players Alliance in 2006 at the WSOP. It was just starting out back then, and was created to assist poker players with unlawful or unethical situations they may encounter. The main issue at the time was professional players being compensated from poker organizations for using their likeness for profit.

 

Then the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act hit the industry, and the role of the PPA became more of a unifying force to help battle against the American government. This has put the organization at the forefront of the game’s battle in the U.S., and numbers have grown to over a million members this past year.

 

You can expect the organization to have a table set up at every WSOP. It’s the best gathering of poker players all year, with over 50,000 players and fans going through the Rio from May 30th to July 7th. If you’re not a member yet, go to the Poker Players Alliance website and check it out.

 

Every online poker room has some sort of WSOP satellite action, but some have gone to extremes this year. The two sites that have pumped up this promotion are Bodog and Full Tilt Poker. The Bodog poker room has been giving away multiple seats each week since February, and they’re currently awarding five seats per week. They have satellites for as low as $1.50 and other qualifiers are $7, $18, $27, $5.50 (plus tourney fee), and special qualifiers that use Bodog Points.

 

Full Tilt has offered $10M to any of their players that qualify for the WSOP main event and wins it. They are running hundreds of satellite tournaments each week, including the Race to the Main Event Giveaway, the 150-Seat Main Event Guarantee, the $200 Tuesday Main Event …
