_FullFlush1_ up a Million, William Hill Complete iPoker Move + more 0001

__FullFlush1__ Up a Million in 2009

The mystery UK player that has been tearing up the nosebleed games on Full Tilt Poker lately is up over a million dollars. _FullFlush1_ is rumoured to be Luke Schwartz of the UK and has been dominating the high stakes tables at Full Tilt, as well as dominating the chatbox (Until he received a chat ban). _FullFlush1_ has been taking on all comers at the tables of Full Tilt Poker and playing very well, and is up $1.02 million in 2009 so far.

He is also relentless in the chatbox, trying to tilt players like Tom Dwan, Patrik Antonius and Di Dang (Hence the chat ban). He is attracting a lot of interest from the railbirds with his antics, his winrate and the mystery as to who he is. Either way, it is nice to see a UK player put in an extended run at the high stakes tables and hopefully we can learn more about _FullFlush1_ soon (Unless he goes broke).

William Hill Move to iPoker

Two major industry giants have finally collided, as the much anticipated move of William Hill to the iPoker network has gone through. The trusted UK poker brand left the CryptoLogic network and players now can benefit from increased player pools, a $600 deposit bonus and an improved VIP club. They also get to play in big money tournaments like the $2.5 million guaranteed at the end of this week and of course the European Championships of Online Poker later this year.

William Hill already had a busy and loyal player base, which means that iPoker is likely to get huge in 2009 as well as a lot juicer. iPoker could be the place to play this year, and why wouldn't you want to play there with such a trusted name such as William Hill flying the flag for them?

Return of SpringFest at PKR

The buy-ins range from $12 to $250 over the 18 events and on top of that there is a freeroll for the players who make it onto the Springfest Leader Board with a WSOP Main Event Seat on offer. There are satellites into all the Springfest Main Events running round the clock.

Cardroom Manager Neil Wright said, "Our festivals keep getting bigger and better and Springfest '09 is no exception. It's still extremely accessible for everyone and now we've also doubled the duration of the series and added lots more in prizes, making this an event not to be missed."
