WCOOP 2014: Rise and shine tomorrow with the WCOOP Main Event webcast

Let's face it. The 24 hour poker clock does not exactly run parallel to that of the real world. For instance, the poker "morning" tends to start at around noon Normal Time. It lasts until about 5pm which poker players call "lunch". The "afternoon" then runs until about midnight, before "evening" sta...more

Partying with the VIP Club in Hamburg

I can't believe that it has actually been a little more than a year now since the last German PokerStars VIP Club: Live event in Berlin.

Weekend Review: WCOOP continues with a first for Lrslszk and a third for mik

Sometimes a username becomes something more than just log-in. It becomes a catchword that means a lot more. Take "Lrslzk" for instance.

Records smashed at PokerStars Drag and Drift
