Partypoker com Shootout Tournaments
February 21, 2006
PartyPoker com Shootout tournaments are an exciting variation to their usual multi-table tournament format. A shootout tournament can be one, two, three or four rounds depending on the number of online poker players that enter. In addition to winning a $25,000 seat at the WPT Championships in November, Tilly won a specially-designed pink poker set with the WPT logo and Breast Cancer Ribbon. Both the Bicycle Casino and WPT donated $10,000 to Breast Cancer Research in honor of Tilly and the other players at the partypoker com final table. As for the European Championship, Tony had this to say 'I played really well at the European Championship, and as with any win, I had a bit of luck as well. I look forward to playing a lot more poker in 2005, and in fact I am playing both the Speed Poker Championships, and the London EPT event this week.'
According to a New York Post article, Rodriguez was riding high after winning the Partypoker shootout tournament earlier in the evening. Rodriguez and Hellmuth decided to go out and celebrate the team's move into first place in the American League East Division. Club sources said that both A-Rod and Hellmuth were the picture of class as they signed autographs and interacted with other partypoker players. The arrival of the stars created quite the buzz as regulars phoned friends to come down and see the two famous faces.
"There is a definite skill factor playing at Partypoker .com," he said. "Players have to know odds. And there is the whole money-management aspect, knowing the percentage of the best hands. Plus the social aspect is a big part of it, too." Of all the things that the current resurgence in poker has brought, one of the things that has had problems catching up is in the world of computer partypoker. Games that have been released in the past have had pitiful artificial intelligence, leading the computerized players to get involved with pots with unbelievable hands. Players who were looking for a tool that they could use to improve their games were bereft of a solid program that would help to raise their partypoker com abilities. With the release of "World Class Poker with T. J. Cloutier," there is a program that will be of interest to hardcore poker players.
The best touch overall has to be the advice from T. J. Cloutier that comes up in Partypoker's Texas Hold 'Em section. While in the middle of the game, tip boxes will pop up with advice on the play of the hand, sometimes with the face and words from the legendary champion himself via the video option that the game features. These "scenario tips" add to the game and are an excellent partypoker school option for those either new to the game or seeking out that leak that keeps them from reaching a higher level. If you don't want to go through the play of the game to see all of T. J.'s advice, then the video clips and other tips from Cloutier are available to go through. Additionally, there is a Partypoker com quiz section where you are presented with scenarios and answers from Cloutier himself.
