New Show Based on Poker Circuit

In the last year, Salsberg has won more than $50,000, and now he wants to share his experience with the man on the street, and share the experience of more than fifty poker stars with young poker stars.

The show is based on poker players in twentieth century. It is a comedy show but based on reality also, and aims to be the first show that will entertain fans in the gambling arena. Today, you can also check poker movies and other entertainment series. With this television show, they are trying to target a large audience – and the competition for eyeballs is something that Salsberg will thrive upon.

There was poker show in the past named Tilt, but it was based on fiction only not on reality. The serial was telecast at ESPN in 2005, and was a drama show which was organized for entertainment not for the education. In his new show, Salsberg is trying to capture the reality of poker world, whilst also giving viewers a glimpse of the surreal world of professional poker players.

Poker players will also explain you how to win a lot of money or how to win any poker game, as well as how to deal with opponents at the table – sp.ometimes, even friends become enemy at the final table.

Sontheimer Won Poker Masters Purple

Steffen Sontheimer won the Poker Masters Purple jacket and the win was a stylish one indeed.

The win was a surprise to the poker experts as he performed admirably well at the final event. For him this is another win at a Poker Masters event and this time he was able to take back the Purple Jacket.

The fact that he was facing stiff competition from the poker gods did not undermine his confidence at all. He managed to rack up two consecutive wins as well as two cash tournaments which were super high roller occasions. He is more known as an online pro who has the handle name RunGooseRun. He has been gaining success in many online tournaments and has made a name for himself as well. However, playing in the finale event of Poker Masters and gaining $100,000 has come as a big break for him. He hails from Brighton of England and his earnings in live tournaments have crossed three million.

He played with the likes of Daniel Negreanu as well as Phil Hellmuth in the final event, but he was holding onto the third largest collection of chip stacks on the table and behind players like Fedor Holz and Christian Christner. There was the pressure of winning the top prize as well as the title of the player of the series. This became apparent when the finale came around. The Purple jacket of the Poker Masters event is akin to the Green Jacket that is won by professional golfers who play the Masters tournament. Sontheimer was able to keep up an even pace when the elimination rounds came and the chips were flowing freely. He was able to curtail the run that Christner was having and that helped him win in the race that was set up for the Purple Jacket.
