PokerTracker 4 partners with the EPT

PT4 on the road
The European Poker Tour picked a new sponsor over the weekend in the form of PokerTracker 4.

Having recently announced renewed associations with Skrill, Shamballa and Slyde, the EPT will now count PT4 as its latest Season 10 partner.

As part of the deal, PT4 representatives will be at various EPT stops (starting in Barcelona on August 28) to demonstrate their latest software package to players.

Following the announcement, Steven McLoughlin of PokerTracker remarked that he looks forward to "demonstrating PokerTracker 4 to EPT players" and showing them the capabilities of the software.

Negreanu's post-WSOP rant

Following a summer of non-stop poker, Daniel Negreanu has finally taken some time to reflect on his recent experiences.

Outlining his thoughts in a trademark video blog, Daniel addresses a number of topics, including his WSOP performance and the new TDA rules.

He also discusses Neil Channing's recent blog post in which he calls out the younger generation for berating recreational players.

Echoing Neil's calls to make the game more welcoming, Daniel urged those who feel the need to mock their opponent's playing style to do it away from the table.

HM2 to disable iPhone app

HM2 evolving
Hold'em Manager will be discontinuing its iPhone app on August 1 and pushing users towards their new cloud system.

In a recent statement posted on their website, the team behind software said they are making the change because "HM Cloud Alpha has significantly more functionality than the HM2 iPhone app".

Indeed, with more features on the way, Hold'em Manager is gradually increasing the reach of its cloud-based system which allows users access to their database through any browser.

At present HM Cloud is still in its Alpha testing phase but thanks to months of successful testing there are plans to remove the limits on its use in the near future.

High stakes corner

A dream line-up took to the virtual felt last night as the likes of Isaac Haxton, Daniel Junglemandan Cates (pictured right) and Ben "Bttech86" Tollerene sat down for some NLHE action.

While a number of stars were on display, it was "proudlikeagoat" who walked away as the day's biggest winner with a profit of $246,800.

Thanks to multiple six-figure pots, the online grinder was able to beat some tough opponents and bank enough money to finish ahead of Cates who scooped $204,000 from a heads-up match against Ben Tollerene.

Daily Signoff
