POKERSTARS UNVEILS EUROPEAN POKER TOUR GRAND FINAL PLAN
Online poker provider Pokerstars has announced that its European Poker Tour Grand Final will again be part of the successful Monaco Festival at the famous Monte Carlo Casino in Monaco.
A total of 48 events are planned over the eleven days of the festival, and the organisers have included more $500 or less buy-in tournaments than any other EPT stop.
Taking place from April 23 to May 2, the EPT Grand Final will be held in collaboration with the France Poker Series (FPS) for the first time at the EPT Monaco festival.
There will be two main events: a Euro 1,100 buy-in FPS tournament, and a $10,600 buy-in EPT main event.
"The EPT has been leading the way in live poker for ten years, and this years EPT Grand Final will be the biggest and best ever," said EPT president Ed Stauchly this week.
"With more tournaments than ever before at lower buy-ins alongside our other events, plus a wide range of cash games, a greater variety of players will be able to experience the EPT, creating a fuller festival atmosphere."
The full schedule is available on the Pokerstars website.
WATCH OUT FOR THE NINJA!
Internet security experts have used various computer and internet publications to issue a public warning that a Russian malware dubbed i2ninja constitutes a danger to internet users and has been targeting poker players.
Apparently chitchat on some questionable hacker forums has revealed that the malware is effective on many of the leading online poker software brands, and even boasts a private support centre.
Speaking to PC World, Kaspersky expert Dmitry Tarakanov said the malware can be distributed via "...spam emails, drive-by-download attacks launched from websites infected with exploit kits and by direct installation through existing botnets and if successful in penetrating a user system can access and exploit privately stored information.
Typically, once installed the malware will access the internet from the user's device and send the plundered information to the criminal using the malicious software.
Experts give the usual advice to users: maintain all anti-virus screens and ensure these are up to date; be careful in opening emails with attachments and be alert for any unfamiliar activity in personal files like banking, passwords, gambling accounts and other sensitive and personal information.
