The Poker Brief Returns with David Tuchman At The Helm
As Kara Scott enjoys her maternity leave The Poker Brief by 888poker returns, with David Tuchman filling in as the new temporary host as he wraps up all the poker happenings over the summer.
We get immediately stuck into the news, as 888 welcomes Spanish poker pro Ana Marquez to the roster as the operator launches a segregated online poker room in Spain. Her joining marks the third Spanish ambassador to join 888’s roster of team pros in the last three months.
“It’s been amazing. There’s so much love, it’s like a family,” said Marquez, who was unveiled at a media event held in Las Vegas back in July. “I think it’s a great addition to the team,” said fellow teammate Sofia Lovgren in an interview with PokerNews. “She’s an amazing player, she’s had great results lately. I’m so happy she’s joined the team.”
Tuchman goes on to look back on the World Series of Poker action over the summer—touching on Joe Cada, Justin Bonomo and Shaun Deeb’s bracelet wins—and who could forget it, but Phil Hellmuth’s WSOP entrance as Thor, God of Thunder.
Thanks to Shaun Deeb’s run good at the WSOP, he now leads the WSOP Player of the Year race.
And who could forget that it was his WSOP win at the Big One for One Drop that put Justin Bonomo in the poll position on the All-Time Money List with the top spot, knocking Daniel Negreanu off the top spot. Bonomo faced off against Fedor Holz to take the win in Las Vegas, last month. If you want to read more on Bonomo’s sick run in 2018 or how his stats compare to Kid Poker’s go over to pokerfuse to read the full article here.
Tuchman wraps up the Poker Brief by talking about the US’s decision to legalise sports betting and what it could mean for the future of online poker in the USA.
