If you cringe at the thought of touching your hole cards at the poker table, because, let’s face it, you just saw that guy in seat 6 leave a bathroom stall without washing his hands….then this new product might come as welcome news.
AMPC Global playing cards recently released what it claims is the first-ever antimicrobial playing cards.
According to the company’s web site, “Microban® antimicrobial product protection is incorporated into the finish of AMPC Global playing cards during the manufacturing process,” and the protection reportedly “remains active 24/7 and for the expected lifetime of AMPC Global playing cards.”
After an incredible ten days of high-stakes poker action, the Triton Super High Roller Series in London has finally come to an end.
The final event of the series: £100,000 Short Deck Main Event attracted 108 entries including 55 re-entries to build a prize pool of more than £10.3 million.
In the end, American poker pro Justin Bonomotopped the field to pocket £2.67 million defeating Wai Kin Yong in the heads-up, who already won the No Limit Hold’em Main Event a couple of days ago. In total, 15 players made the money receiving a minimum of £177,000 prize.
Ahead of the start of Triton Super High Roller London, Bonomo was leading the all-time poker money list until Bryn Kenney snatched that pole position after taking down the world’s most expensive buy-in poker tournament.
With this win, Bonomo has now racked up over $48 million in total lifetime tournament earnings.
“My 2018 was incredible, so I’m kind of easing my way into retirement,” Bonomo said. “My plan is to play less poker, Bryn’s plan is to play a lot of poker, so as far as I’m concerned I’ll probably never get number one again. It’s not really a goal of mine, and I’m totally fine with that.”
He added: “I’m not going to completely retire, but I’m playing a lot less. Because of 2018 I’ve nothing but pride to look back on. I’ve nothing left to prove to anyone.”
