Play now! On Demand Poker Tournaments are now a viable option. Full Tilt Poker has released a software update which will give Poker fans the ability to play tournaments whenever their heart desires.
The online poker site will now feature what they are calling “On Demand” tournaments. As of now, the tourneys are restricted on the site, with many limitations for testing purposes. There are many two dollar SNG’s were converted to the On Demand format. This new format will be more like a “sit-and-go” format with many features that are flexible just like the typical standard scheduled multi-table tournaments. The tournament will begin once a determined amount of competitors are registered, and then after the tourney begins late registration will be an option.
In other Poker news, Brad McCullough, owner of the Sleep Therapy Mattress Center which is located in Lexington, is planning a huge poker competition! He is currently planning to draw in the celebrities to a big event in Las Vegas in order to raise money for Kyle Petty’s Victory Junction Camp. He has teamed up with Black Ace Clothing and two brothers, Paul and Howard Davis to create a brand that focuses around a poker theme. The company mainly sells T-shirts, but the men have decided that the best way to market their brand is to produce lifestyle events under their name and thus the poker charity event. So on March 3rd, the Black Ace/ Victory Junction Celebrity Poker Tournament will go down. The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas will house the celebrity competition, which will include an auction. They are passionate about helping out the charity as Petty is one of the co-founders. The charity holds a camp for terminally ill kids, and gives them a once-in-a-life-time experience. The tourney is perfectly timed as it takes place on the Thursday right before the NASCAR Spring Cup race series which is March 6th. With the expected success of the Vegas tourney they expect to create a Poker club back in Lexington or within the area, giving players a safe and legal spot to hone their poker playing skills.
