From the looks of it, the first PokerStars tournament in the US in a long time will run from October 29 to November 6 and will happen at The Resorts Casino, New Jersey—but it looks like PokerStars is keeping the rest of the details close to its chest for now.

Last week Daniel Negreanu admitted on his blog to winning $50K over in the Bellagio, but loosing an eye watering $436K in prop bets over the course of the evening.
They got me out of retirement. Playing props for the first time in like 10 years. Degen Friday night I guess. https://t.co/h5PoIIc4cz— Daniel Negreanu (@RealKidPoker) August 06, 2016
A crazy amount by anyone’s standards.
Negreanu had headed to the Bellagio to play some mixed games with some old school poker veterans, such as Gus Hansen, Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Doyle Brunson and David Oppenhiem. They then spiced up the action by adding some prop bets to the mix.
Last week on the special edition of the Pokerfuse Podcast, our host Michael Gentile sat down with former Head of Corporate Communications and Global Poker Marketing for PokerStars, Eric Hollreiser, to discuss various topics covering everything from Black Friday to Supernova Elite, PSPC and what’s the future of online poker may look like, and much more!
