PokerStars has been busy in the Latin American market the last few days recruiting lots of latin american players. They've also recently crowned a poker champion after a failed event last year.

The PokerStars-sponsored Latin American Poker Tour’s cancelled Season 2 Mexico event has finally crowned a champion. If you missed the story the first time around, that tournament was shut down last December by local government authorities on the second day of a planned three-day event and the prize pool was distributed among the 89 players who still had chips.

2009 World Series of Poker Registration Begins - 30,000 Chips for Each Player

I can't tell you how excited I am for the 2009 World Series of Poker. It's down year for the economy, and I think that's going to bring out some real focus in the players in the main event.

Big news is the fact the main event is going to give each player 30,000 chips instead of less than half that - to make it interesting. Let's see what happens - SHUFFLE UP AND DEAL ME IN!

Those four words will be music to the ears of many poker players who have criticized the World Series of Poker in the past for not providing enough starting chips and for not allowing enough play in the later stages of its tournaments.

Why? Because you'll lose all your chips in a multi-way pot if you're not careful. :-)

Pocket aces might make up the best starting hand in Texas hold' em, but the old line remains a welcome caveat: You can win a small pot with aces, but you can lose a big one.

Ideally, you want to play your aces heads-up against a single opponent because you are at least a 4-1 favorite against another pocket pair. But if you get involved in a multi-way pot, you can find yourself in a lot of trouble if you aren't disciplined enough to lay them down.

"You just have to let it go sometimes," said Johnny Chan, the 1987 and '88 World Series of Poker main event champion.
