Rumous have been spreading that poker giants 888 may merge with 먹튀사이트late next year, this could mean pacific poker could become one of the largest online poker rooms.
However nothing is set in stone as yet, this is merely forum gossip but has been spreading like wildfire.
Just finished watching this episode, was good to see Doyle Brunson play (although folding a hand to a lower flush)
Other highlights include watching Laliberte winning hand after hand (half of his winning he is donating to charity) this also introduced my favourite phrase of the series “Lesson number one for the potentially best bluffer in the world: don’t try to bluff billionaires,”
One annoying aspect of the game was Jamie Gold consistantly explaining how he was ‘the best bluffer in the world’ only to get bluffed by Benyamine
All in all a good episode and next weeks looks like their will be a lot more action and a lot more cash swapping hands.

Some believe he hacked the system (this is the stance that absolute are sticking with) while the majority believe this user ‘worked’ for absolute poker. For more info se this wikipedia entry
