Cardroom Roundup: Wynn Poker Room

Wynn Las Vegas is quite simply the plushest destination resort and casino on the planet. The magic that produced this Las Vegas landmark comes from the Wizard of Las Vegas, Steve Wynn. The tallest building in Nevada provides 2,716 luxurious rooms and magnificent suites for the most discerning guest. Located center stage on the famous Vegas Strip, the magic is just behind a curbside Alpine mountain range that has a great copper hued arc of a building rising above it all.

7-Card Stud Home Game Variations, PART 1

For the past two and a half years I've been covering the standard 7-card stud game found in casinos and poker rooms in the United States. But stud is played more often as a home game these days. As such, it is often given to many twists and turns. I thought I'd branch out for my next few articles and write about 7-Card Stud the home game. I'd like to look at some of those variations. There's a lot of skill involved that players often don't consider. I had an argument with a budding author a few months back.

World of Poker: Netherlands

There are at least three very well-known Dutch poker players. Rob Hollink was born in Enschede and is a huge force in tournaments. Hollink has cashed twelve times at the WSOP and twice at the WPT, including fifth in the Season 3 WPT Championship at Bellagio. This all pales next to his win in the European Poker Tour's Grand Finale in Season 1. He took first in a very tough field, earning $845,190.

World of Poker: Germany

Gambling has deep roots in Germany. The roulette wheel itself was developed by Francois and Louis Blanc and introduced in Germany. When the laws turned against gambling in the late 1800s, Louis Blanc took the wheel to Monaco, which led to the creation of Monte Carlo.

Silverton Casino Lodge Las Vegas located on the south end of the Strip is the first Vegas casino for visitors driving in from California. The Silverton Casino is the only resort in town, and maybe the world, with a Pro Bass Shop and their huge showroom fronts the property. If you're wondering about the unusual mix of fish and chips please stop and sample it first hand, you'll be glad you did.

Online Poker Room Review: Absolute Poker

Absolute Poker has been on a tear as of late, both in expanding their player base as well as their stable of site pros. Every night, over 15,000 players flock to Absolute's wide selection of cash games and tournaments. And if they're lucky, they might just get the chance to test their skills against top professionals and WSOP champions such as Mark Seif, Brandon Cantu, Sean McCabe, Casey Kastle, Lacey Jones and Card Player's 2006 Player of the Year Michael "the Grinder" Mizrachi.

World of Poker: Finland

Possibly the most famous Finnish poker player of all is Patrik Antonius. Lately, he's been on tour Stateside, hitting several major events since the World Series. And what a World Series it was: five cashes, including ninth in the $25,000 HORSE event. Antonius also finished runner-up in 2005's Doyle Brunson event at Bellagio. This native son does Finland proud, and it's also remarkable considering Finland has only one casino with poker.

"We offer cash games and tournaments," says Jukka Rasanen, table games and poker manager at Grand Casino Helsinki.
