Victory: Poker T-shirts

by , Sep 27, 2010 | 7:49 pm

Awesome … talk about a stroke of fortunate timing. The latest release from Pokerati’s Generic Pokerwear collection just arrived … in time for Dan Fleyshman’s final table run at WSOPE, where he starts off as the chip leader. The shirt, as testament to PGP’s high style and versatility, is also fitting for die-hard fans of 1981 movies starring Sylvester Stallone and Pele.

Even if Fleyshman, the affable jet-setting insomniac Gen-Y online poker CEO whose penchant for lingerie models has put him at the center of controversy, goes out in something non-memorable like 7th place … you can always stick it to the Nazis or make a time-tested statement on the table or off about what’s yours with:

Pick a Winner shirt
Pick a Winner

NOTE: These shirts are not official uniforms for Team Victory Poker and are for entertainment purposes only. Any similarities to attire worn by actual VP pros is coincidental.

Hour of Power

The Poker Beat

by , Feb 9, 2010 | 5:59 am

The award-winning cast of The Poker Beat breaks down last week who did and did not make the cut of the Bluff Power 20, and we analyze the launch of Victory Poker. Is there space (six years after Chris Moneymaker) for a new online poker site in the sector — one that does not include Full Tilt pros, PokerStars-size tournament fields, and AP/UB’s Kahnawake-ness?

Hard Rock Running it Twice

by , Feb 5, 2010 | 8:55 pm

The Hard Rock Poker Lounge is getting its weekend poker orgy underway — this is the “relaunch” of the poker room there … under new management, with new ideas, and more action than usual …

They’ve got a full slate this weekend — beyond just the free food, splashed pots, a 20k guarantee Friday tourney and stuff like that … they’ve got a whole slate of events, including a Sharon Osborne celebrity charity event (Trash Talk Championship of the World they are calling it), a party for the launch of Victory poker. Currently filming (for ESPN 360, I believe, is a $100/$200 NLH cash game. $50k buy-in … with Antonio Esfandiari, Andrew Robl and others on the table … we’ll have some more names for you. And I think that’s The Maven waiting in the wings for a seat.

Click here for a rundown of all they’ve got going on.

Of course the game next table over is what really interests me — $1/$2 NLH/PLO … just an option to run-it-2x today, not automatic. But in my jaded opinion, that’s where the real poker is going on. The plan is to keep this game running throughout the weekend — as Super Bowl raffle is currently my 2010 bankroll plan.

More TK throughout the weekend … but here’s a glimpse of surprisingly early Friday night action taking off at the Hard Rock’s big poker weekend:
