Pokerstars abandons Bike

The NAPT is still in action at the Bike. You wouldn’t know it though as Pokerstars abandoned the Bike two days ago and never returned. This leaves the host casino holding a $1k Heads Up (way too high for the locals) today and a $200k guarantee this weekend that quite frankly nobody wants.

Dealers and floorstaff are heading home after only 18 entered the Heads up event which did attract mostly young internet players. I cannot name anyone in this field but the list shows the following entered:

Ryan Jones, Mikhail Gurkov, Conor Shelly, Derek Pasquarella, Mike Flanagan,Jason Lufkin, Ryan Drossel, Herbert Gelman, Kelly Robertson, Tom Ochoa, Mike Leanos, Tom Young, Ad Fouad, Chris Miller, Barry Woods,Timothy Cha, Adam Bierman,Ankush Mandavia and Peter Carrillo.

The first four winners are Timothy Cha, Michael Flanagan, Ryan Drossel and Peter Carrillo.

Meanwhile ,just across the factory belt, the Commerce had 138 entrants for Day1 of its $2k ME.Players included tournament stalwarts such as Men Nguyen,Mimi Tran,Super Mario and Miami John alongside the new faces such as Sorel Mizzi who won the knockout bounty here.Day2 is tomorrow with Matt + Sam needing another 112 to cover the guarantee.

Jae Burn of Portland leads the Day1 pack.

After 199 entered on Saturday the total prize pool was $653k with $178k for first.

The Commerce buffet was closed for a staff party.A fleet of ambulances stood by.

Candy Girls boss gave me a tip for a horse he bred called Loving Snow. It was cooler in L.A. today but snow isn’t in the forecast.
