If you missed the opportunity to try out the much-awaited poker site Run It Once Poker during its first beta testing, then you should get ready because the operator wants you to try out the new software for real-money gameplay once again.
The site will open for another beta testing session on Wednesday, October 3 and it is expected this time around there will be more new features to try out including possibly the hand replayer, which had been disabled earlier.
Also, the good news is that for the first time the RIO site will have a Mac client along with the Windows Desktop client.

Watch the craziness unfold in one of the biggest poker pots ever televised.
When you place a straddle bet, you would really hope to see hands like pocket Kings or Aces, and that’s exactly what happened to Paul Phua, a Malaysian businessman and poker player.
At the recent Triton High Roller Series in Jeju in a $1 million buy-in cash game, a massive pot built up between Tom Dwan and Paul Phua. Blinds were 3M/6M/6M with a 12M straddle in the local currency.
Paul straddled and Dominik Nitsche raised, then Tom sees Ace Queen and decides to 3bet to 120M only to see a 4bet from Paul who woke up with Aces.
The pot had already gone up to $431,100 and after some tanking, Tom goes all-in for his remaining $1 million. Paul who had been smiling and laughing continuously throughout the hand, calls instantly to take down the massive $2,353,500 pot. After Dwan loses, he announces that instead of trying to get even with Phua we was going to try his luck at Six Plus Hold’em.
Watch the fierce battle between Tom Dwan and Paul Phua as it creates one of the biggest televised poker pot here:
