The History of World Series of Poker

WSOP in the 70`sWorld Series of Poker, also known as WSOP is probably the most famous live tournament poker series in the world. If you win The World Series of Poker tournament then you become a real poker legend. Anyone can become a winner of a WSOP bracelet because you can qualify at these events through online satellites that are available on poker sites which provide super promotions and a great customer service. The online players have the chance to take part at the WSOP by purchasing an online satellite ticket for just $1 and sometimes even for free. The most well known example is Chris Moneymaker who won the main event (more than $2,5 Million) after he qualified from an online poker room for  just $39.

For example you can try your luck this year to get qualified through the online satellites as the 2013 WSOP Schedule is already known. The WSOP starts with the Casino Employees No-Limit Hold’em on 27th May 2013 and ends on 7th July with the No Limit Hold`em Main Event.

The WSOP has its roots in 70`s when the casino owner and poker player Benny Binion organized the first edition of series in his own casino: HorseShoe. In those days the tournaments structure was different: they played only cash games of Texas Hold’em, Seven Cards Stud, RAZZ, Deuce to Seven, Low Ball Draw and Five Cards Stud. Because a tournament structure was not available at that time, Benny Binion has invited six of the most valuable players of that era as judges and to vote for the best player. They voted for Johnny Moss, so he became the first World Champion of Poker.  He didn`t receive a bracelet, but he received a golden cup. The next year they added a freezeout structure for the WSOP. Since then the World Series of Poker changed its rules a lot of times and the cash prizes has grown now reaching outstanding figures.  The climax of WSOP regarding the prizes was in 2006 when Jamie Gold won the main event, the bracelet and 12 million dollars.

Because of its popularity, the number of players grew, and the Horseshoe Casino became too small, so the WSOP moved to the Amazon Room.  Since then the World Series of Poker is running there. In 2007 the WSOP was for the first time held outside Las Vegas. It was held in London and the WSOP was named: World Series of Poker Europe (WSOPE). That main event was won by an unknown 18 y.o teen girl (also qualified online) named Annette Obrestad. She became the youngest poker player that ever won the WSOP and she will remain the youngest player that won the World Series of Poker, at least in Las Vegas because the minimum age for playing at WSOP in USA is 21.

Poker Stars Download Mobile Guide

PokerStars entered the mobile poker space last year in 2012, which is much later than many operators. Currently PokerStars is only focusing on the two biggest mobile markets, as they’ve only developed standalone apps for the iOS and Android OS.

Installing PokerStars Mobile to Your Device

Downloading the PokerStars Mobile app is 100% free and it’ll allow you to access all of the mobile features. If your mobile device is running on the iOS you can download the app from iTunes and if you’re running on Android you can install the app from PokerStars.

The PokerStars iOS app will work on iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches that run on iOS 4.1.x or higher. To run the Android app you’ll need to be running Android 2.2 or higher and your mobile device only needs to have a minimum screen resolution of 800 x 480.

Most of the popular Android devices will work fine with PokerStars Mobile. Some of the compatible Android mobile devices include the Samsung Galaxy, Galaxy Nexus, Motorola Droid RAZR, Acer Liquid A1, HTC Sensation/Desire and plenty of other Androids.

PokerStars Mobile is available in over a dozen languages already including English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Danish, Polish, Russian, Finnish, Swedish, Portuguese and several others. Simply choose your preferred language when you install the app. For a step-by-step guide on getting this app loaded onto your phone, you can visit their site – they even have a video that will walk you through the process.

PokerStars Mobile Games & Features

What most people don’t realize about PokerStars Mobile is that it uses the same player pool as the computer poker client. You’ll get to play on the same tables as players on computers and that means there is never a shortage of action due to the huge traffic.

All of the poker ring table games and tournaments are available on PokerStars Mobile. You can even play Zoom Poker, but you still can’t play “Home Games” on your mobile device. You won’t be able to request stats or tourney histories on the mobile app either.

Multi-tabling is compatible on the PokerStars Mobile apps. If you’re using an iPad you can play up to five tables at once and if you’re playing on an iPhone, iPod Touch or Android you’ll be able to play up to four tables at the same time at PokerStars.

Before you can start playing any mobile poker on PokerStars you need to open an account if you don’t have one. Players can open a new account on their mobile device after they download the app or you can sign-up on your computer and then sign-in to the app.

When you’re selecting a game to play you can use the same filters available on the PC and Mac poker client. Once you choose your filters you can also use a simple “Play Now” button to be brought to a table with the same format as the last table you played on.

One of the best mobile features at PokerStars is the “Web-Cashier”. Mobile poker players using the Android OS can make deposits and withdrawals using the web-cashier right away while iOS users need to make their 1st deposit on a computer beforehand.

For the best experience it’s recommended that you use a WiFi connection to play on PokerStars Mobile although you can also use a 3G connection. There have been connectivity issues with 3G connections plus your service provider may charge a data fee.

One question I’m asked a lot is what happens if someone phones me? If you receive a call that you answer the app will go into the “Background Mode” where you’ll sit-out until you’re back. After 25 seconds you’ll be disconnected and have to reconnect though.

Most countries are able to play on PokerStars Mobile now as long as you have an iOS or Android OS device. The app supports both real money and play money action, so you can test out the mobile poker tables with play money before playing with real money.

Is Online Poker Safe?

This is the first question that a future online poker player will ask. He really wants to know if the online poker is at least as safe as the live poker. When this question is asked, everybody is referring to RNG (Random Number Generator), at the possibility of other players to see your cards or about the security of the deposit and withdrawal.

Yes! The online poker is safe, but only when the online poker rooms are well known and have a complete review to read about  like on our website PokerSofts.com. You would think  that the online poker affiliates are directly interested to assure you that certain poker rooms  are safe and trustworthy because they are promoting this sites, but do not forget, for an online poker affiliate site to work, its affiliate players have to win constantly.

Let`s start with the RNG (Random Number Generator). You already heard dozens of times: “I had Aces and the other one had twos and I lost”. Yes, is true, these type of hands exists, but are very rare. The players which had the bad luck to be on the loser side in this kind of hand doesn`t know that in the same time at other  tables, millions of hands were played, so the chance to take part in a weird hand is about luck or bad luck. Most of the poker rooms have a decent RNG, which by the way is a type of hardware, not software.

The legend that some genius players can see your cards is a total bedtime story. Maybe, in the 90`s, when the poker client software was at the beginning, then was a chance for some hacker players to see your cards, but in 2013 when the software is fully encrypted and tested, there is no chance for anyone to see your cards, because he will need, not just to hack the software, he will need to hack the server also, so it is impossible.

You should not have reasons to be afraid when you deposit or withdraw money from your poker room. It is like you want to buy DVD from amazon.com, you pay with your credit or debit card and they ship the DVD to your home. The same thing is here. You deposit, you play and you withdraw the money. The only thing you need is to be aware of the poker rooms which have been recommended to you by email (spam or no spam). You need to look yourself for the best poker room which suits you.
