A lot of noise came up after the final hand of WSOP  Main Event and the subject is slow-roll! The runner-up finisher, Tony Miles, accused the actual champion, John Cynn for unfair play, which caused the reaction of many people from the poker world.

What do you think? Was this a slow-roll in the final hand?

Cynn opened with KClub SuitJClub Suit, Miles 3bet him with QClub Suit8Heart Suit. The flop came: KHeart SuitKDiamond Suit5Heart Suit. Miles made a continuation bet and Cynn just called. The turn brought  8Diamond Suit and Miles pushed all-in. After thinking for a while Joh Cynn made a call. When Miles saw what Cyn had, he was shocked why he took so long for this, according to him, easy call. However, Cynn immediately apologized and told Miles that he didn’t have an intention to slow-roll him, he just wanted to think thru.

However, Tony Miles didn’t take long to regret his accusations and apologize to John Cynn, who he considers as a very good person and friend.

“We were playing for millions of dollars and John had every right to take his time and talk through his decision. My immediate reaction of angst and frustration was unwarranted and I take full responsibility for what I said.”, Miles announced.

In January this year, PokerStars was the first poker site who got the license to share Spanish and French players pool. After just a couple of months, merging showed up as a  great business idea. Much better tournaments with doubled guarantees, a whole lot more players on cash games, full SNG lobbies, non-stop action on Spin ‘n’ Goes is what made players way more satisfied. Not only the true poker lovers, but many players from casino games are now participating since there is lots of that going on.

At the time the plan was on the table there were two more countries besides Spain and France who agreed to a liquidity sharing deal – Portugal and Italy. After taking a while Portugal is finally in! They ‘ve just joined at the end of May this year. It brought even more benefits for both players and PokerStars leadership.

Guy Templer, a chief operating officer at Stars Group, said:

“We have worked hard to become the first operator to bring the benefits of shared liquidity to Portugal. Our players will see a huge increase in the variety and scale of our tournaments and promotions. They will enjoy more excitement, more competition, and more fun. This dramatically strengthens our offering and demonstrates our commitment to the Portuguese market. We look forward to working with the Portuguese regulator to further improve the poker product offering for Portuguese players. Additionally, we hope that Italy will soon progress so that their players can also enjoy the significantly better experience that shared liquidity brings.” Templer finished.

We believe that players also impatiently wait for Italy to join because there is no doubt it will be another great win-win move.

partypoker recognized a great business idea

We are witnesses that partypoker is working very hard to have their players more and more satisfied. Great cashback, promotions, bonuses, great VIP system is not only they are doing. Another proof of their commitment is that they are ready to “steal” the idea from another site. So, 4 months after PokerStars merged the player pools in Spain and France, partypoker did the same. They are already enjoying the benefits! The number of MTT scheduled tournaments is more than doubled and there is a great action on cash games.

Other rooms may take the same move

888 poker and Winamax are also considering sharing the liquidity.  However, 888 still doesn’t have a legal license in Portugal. That is probably something on what their team is going to work on in the following months.

We can say that definitely is something good going on in the poker world. partypoker and PokerStars showed their will about making global markets, especially PokerStars since they have let even players from the other countries to play on their pokerstars.es site. It would be great if all other networks do the same. After that, we are waiting for USA market do join the rest of the world!

Could all of this be a good sign that moment is getting near?
