|Recent software improvements to the Betfair Poker site have struck a chord with high-stakes regulars who have been risking hundreds of thousands at the tables.|
Today’s marathon $250/$500 no limit hold’em ring game started shortly after midnight (GMT). The game ended with $600,000 at the table at ten o’clock this morning. A stalemate between the final two players – “operation” at $150,000 and “SuckMyD” at $450,000 – led to a final “gg” and “gn” (good game and good night) as the players decided to take some well earned rest. “Jandrew” and “sinceroo” left the game earlier this morning.
The biggest winner of the day was the Swedish IP address “SuckMyD” who is estimated to have made $330,000 profit on the session.
“Its good work if you can handle the pressure,” said Betfair spokesman Oliver Bowen. “Betfair is very popular with high-stakes poker players because our payments system is one of the best on the web. When you are putting so much money at stake you want to know that the site is secure, payments can be made quickly, and the exchange rates are fair.”
“Our software has come on leaps and bounds. We have seen a strong increase in player numbers over the last few months and these high-stakes games give all the players some good entertainment.”
Ben “Milkybarkid” Grundy was the biggest cash game winner in December. He won the $3,000 first prize in the monthly Betfair Leaderboards competition. His blog can be read at - http://betting.betfair.com/milkybarkid/
