Run It Once Poker’s Sit & Go Product “CUB3” Coming this Autumn

Upstart online poker room Run It Once poker has released a teaser of its long-awaited unique Sit & Go product which is slated to go live this Autumn under the name Cub3.

No further details have been unveiled other than a short teaser video on social media and its website under the tagline, “Can you Crack the Cub3?”

While not much can be surmised from this, but the number three in its name suggests that the game will adopt the ultra-popular 3-handed tournament like other lottery sit and gos in the industry but it remains to be seen whether the game will have a twist on its own.

The company had made a name for itself by introducing innovative ideas such as Dynamic Avatars, Built-in HUD, Splash the Pot, StreamR rewards program, so its quite possible RIO’s CUB3 could be something industry-first game feature.

Let us know on social media what do you think the Cub3 will be about?

Padraig “Smidge” O’Neill Takes Down Unibet Open Online

Padraig “Smidge” O’Neill won a whopping €79,998 for the Unibet Open Online title, beating opponent “lovebeaches” heads up.

The Unibet Open Online took place on the final two days of the Unibet Online Series, having had to move online due to the coronavirus pandemic.

387 total runners turned out to take part in the Unibet Open Online, with 64 players returned for Day 2. A €406,350 prizepool was created, the largest ever in Unibet Open Online history, smashing the €250,000 guarantee.

“I’m absolutely buzzing! To be honest I only signed up to Unibet because of Lappin and Doke,” O’Neill said of Unibet Ambassadors David Lappin and Dara O’Kearney. “They told me how good the games were and they weren’t wrong. I probably owe them a pint!”

“These days, I play on Unibet most nights. I played the last Unibet Open Online and, to be honest, it was a probably a bit fast. This one was perfect. I don’t think the average stack ever dropped below 40bbs. It was also great that Unibet had a Twitch stream. My family all got to watch me win the most amount of money I have ever won. That makes it all extra special for me!”

Check out the moment O’Neill won below with Unibet Ambassadors O’Kearney, Lappin and Ian Simpson commentating.
