Ultimate Poker Leaderboard


The percentage you get Ultimate X Poker Jackpots from the affiliate program will be determined by the number of first-time depositors of the previous month, and this will be summarized from all the casinos you market. However, the net revenue will be calculated separately for each gambling site you work with. A Ultimate Texas Holdem Betting Strategy progressive jackpot is a casino-style jackpot which increases each time the game is played, if the jackpot is not won. When the progressive jackpot is won, the jackpot for the next Ultimate Texas Holdem Betting Strategy play is reset to a predetermined value, then resumes increasing with each play.

Poker Tournament Directors Association

The PokerTDA is comprised of poker room personnel from around the world whose objective is to draft a standardized set of rules for poker tournaments. The TDA has developed the following tournament poker rules, which supplement the standard or 'House Rules' of this card room/casino. If there is a conflict between these rules and the rules and regulations of the applicable gaming agency, the gaming agency rules apply.

To: (760) 670-3130
To receive updates and invites to our special events

  1. Floor People
    Floor people are to consider the best interest of the game and fairness as the top priority in the decision-making process. Unusual circumstances can on occasion dictate that decisions in the interest of fairness take priority over the technical rules. The floor person's decision is final.
  2. Official Language
    The English-only rule will be enforced in the United States during the play of hands. English will be used in international play along with the local or native language.
  3. Communication
    Players may not talk on the phone while at the poker table. House rules apply to all other forms of electronic devices.
  1. Random Seats
    Tournament and satellite seats will be randomly assigned. Accommodations for players with special physical needs will be made when possible.
  2. Breaking Tables
    Players going from a broken table to fill in seats assume the rights and responsibilities of the position. They can get the big blind, the small blind, or the button. The only place they cannot get a hand is between the small blind and the button.
  3. Balancing Tables
    In flop and mixed games when balancing tables, players will be moved from the big blind to the worst position, including taking a single big blind when available, even if that means the seat will have the big blind twice. Worst position is never the small blind. The table from which a player is moved will be as specified by a predetermined procedure. In stud-only games, players will be moved by position (the last seat to open up at the short table is the seat to be filled). Play will halt on any table that is three or more players short.
  4. Number of Players at Final Table
    In flop games, the final table will consist of ten (10) players. In stud-type games, the final table will consist of nine (9) players.
  1. Declarations
    Cards speak. Verbal declarations as to the content of a player's hand are not binding; however, any player deliberately miscalling his or her hand may be penalized.
  2. Face Up
    All cards will be turned face up once a player is all-in and all betting action is complete.
  3. Killing Winning Hand
    Dealers cannot kill a winning hand that was tabled and was obviously the winning hand. Players are encouraged to assist in reading tabled hands if it appears that an error is about to be made.
  4. Showdown
    At the end of last round of betting, the player who made the last aggressive action in that betting round must show first. If there was no bet, the player to the left of the button shows first and so on clockwise. In stud games, the player with the high board must show first. In razz, the lowest board shows first.
  5. Odd Chips
    The odd chip will go to the high hand. In flop games when there are two or more high hands or two or more low hands, the odd chip(s) will go to the left of the button. In stud games, the odd chip will go to the high card by suit. However, when hands have identical value (e.g., a wheel in Omaha/8) the pot will be split as evenly as possible.
  6. Side Pots
    Each side pot will be split separately.
  7. Playing the Board
    A player must show both cards when playing the board in order to get part of the pot.
  8. Disputed Pots
    The right to dispute a hand ends when a new hand begins. (See rule #18.)
  1. Chip Race
    When it is time to color-up chips, they will be raced off with a maximum of one chip going to any player. The chip race will always start in the No.1 seat. A player cannot be raced out of a tournament: a player who loses his or her remaining chip(s) in a chip race will be given one chip of the smallest denomination still in play. Players are encouraged to witness the chip race.
  2. Deck Changes
    Deck changes will be on the dealer push or level changes or as prescribed by the house. Players may not ask for deck changes.
  3. New Limits
    When time has elapsed in a round and a new level is announced by a member of the tournament staff, the new level applies to the next hand. A hand begins with the first riffle. If an automatic shuffler is being used, the hand begins when the green button is pushed.
  4. Re-buys
    A player may not miss a hand. If a player announces the intent to rebuy before a new hand, that player is playing chips behind and is obligated to make the re-buy.
  5. Calling for a Clock
    Once a reasonable amount of time has passed and a clock is called for, a player will be given a maximum of one minute to make a decision. If action has not been taken before time expires, there will be a 10-second countdown. If a player has not acted by the time the countdown is over, the player's hand will be dead.
  6. Rabbit Hunting
    No rabbit hunting is allowed. Rabbit hunting is revealing any of the cards “that would have come” if the hand had not ended.
  1. At Your Seat
    A player must be at his or her seat by the time all players have been dealt complete initial hands in order to have a live hand. A player must be at his/her seat to call time.
  2. Action Pending
    A player must remain at the table if he has a live hand.
  1. Dead Button
    Tournament play will use a dead button.
  2. Dodging Blinds
    A player who intentionally dodges any blind when moving from a broken table will incur a penalty.
  3. Button in Heads-up
    In heads-up play, the small blind is on the button and acts first. When beginning heads-up play, the button may need to be adjusted to ensure no player takes the big blind twice in a row.
  1. Misdeals
    In stud-type games, if any of the player's two down cards are exposed due to dealer error it is a misdeal. In flop games, exposure of one of the first two cards dealt is a misdeal. Players may be dealt two consecutive cards on the button.
  2. Four-Card Flop
    If the flop contains four (rather than three) cards, whether exposed or not, the dealer shall scramble the 4 cards face down. A floor person will be called to randomly select one card to be used as the next burn card and the remaining three cards will become the flop.
  1. Verbal Declarations / Acting in Turn
    Verbal declarations in turn are binding. Players are required to act in turn. Action out of turn will be binding if the action to that player has not changed. A check, call or fold is not considered action changing.
  2. Methods of Raising
    In no-limit or pot-limit, a raise must be made by (1) placing the full amount in the pot in one motion; or (2) verbally declaring the full amount prior to the initial placement of chips into the pot; or (3) verbally declaring “raise” prior to the placement of the amount to call into the pot and then completing the action with one additional motion. It is the player's responsibility to make his intentions clear.
  3. Raises
    A raise must be at least the size of the largest previous bet or raise of the current betting round. If a player puts in a raise of 50% or more of the previous bet but less than the minimum raise, he or she must make a full raise. The raise will be exactly the minimum raise allowed (see exception for multiple same-denomination chips Rule 33). In no-limit and pot limit, an all-in wager of less than a full raise does not reopen the betting to a player who has already acted.
  4. Oversized Chip
    Anytime when facing a bet (or blind), placing a single oversized chip in the pot is a call if a raise is not first verbally declared. To raise with a single oversized chip, a declaration must be made before the chip hits the table surface. If a raise is declared (but not an amount), the raise is the maximum allowable for that chip. When not facing a bet, placing an oversized chip in the pot without declaration is a bet of the maximum allowable for the chip.
  5. Multiple Chips
    When facing a bet, unless a raise is first declared, multiple same-denomination chips is a call if removing one chip leaves less than the call amount. Example of a call: preflop, blinds 200-400: A makes it 1200 (an 800 raise), B puts out two 1000 chips without declaring raise. Placing chips of mixed denominations in the pot is governed by the 50% standard in Rule 31.
  6. Number of Raises
    There is no cap on the number of raises in no-limit games. In limit events there will be a limit to raises even when heads-up until the tournament is down to two players; the house limit will apply.
  7. Pot Size
    Players are entitled to be informed of the pot size in pot-limit games only. Dealers will not count the pot in limit and no-limit games.
  8. String Bets and Raises
    Dealers will be responsible for calling string bets and raises.
  1. Chips on the Table
    Players must keep their higher denomination chips visible and identifiable at all times.
  2. Chips in Transit
    Players may not hold or transport tournament chips in any manner that takes them out of view. A player who does so will forfeit the chips and will face disqualification. The forfeited chips will be taken out of play.
  3. Unprotected Hands
    If a dealer kills an unprotected hand, the player will have no redress and will not be entitled to a refund of bets. However, if a player had raised and the raise had not yet been called, the raise will be returned to the player.
  1. Penalties and Disqualification
    A penalty MAY be invoked if a player exposes any card with action pending, throws a card off the table, violates the one-player-to-a-hand rule, or similar incidents take place. Penalties WILL be invoked in cases of soft play, abuse, or disruptive behavior. Penalties available to the TD include verbal warnings and “missed hand” penalties. Except for a one-hand penalty, missed hand penalties will be assessed as follows: The offender will miss one hand for every player, including the offender, who is at the table when the penalty is given multiplied by the number of rounds specified in the penalty. For the period of the penalty, the offender shall remain away from the table but will continue to be dealt in.

    Tournament staff can assess a one-hand penalty, one-, two-, three-, or four-round penalties or disqualification. A player who is disqualified shall have his or her chips removed from play. Repeat infractions are subject to escalating penalties.

  2. No Disclosure
    Players are obligated to protect the other players in the tournament at all times. Therefore, players, whether in the hand or not, may not:
    1. Disclose contents of live or folded hands,
    2. Advise or criticize play at any time,
    3. Read a hand that hasn't been tabled.
  1. Exposing Cards
    A player who exposes his cards with action pending may incur a penalty, but will not have a dead hand. The penalty will begin at the end of the hand.
  2. Ethical Play
    Poker is an individual game. Soft play will result in penalties, which may include forfeiture of chips and/or disqualification. Chip dumping and/or all other forms of collusion will result in disqualification.
  3. Etiquette Violations
    Repeated etiquette violations will result in penalties. Examples include, but are not limited to, unnecessarily touching other players’ cards or chips, delay of the game, repeatedly acting out of turn or excessive chatter.
Home » Poker News » ESPN Broadcast Wraps a Rough 2020 for WSOP

On Sunday night, February 28, ESPN broadcast four hours of World Series of Poker action. It summarized on film the two live final tables – one in the Czech Republic, one in the USA – that resulted from online play for the 2020 WSOP Main Event. And the final hour allowed viewers to get to know the two finalists and watch a solid heads-up match.

It was a fine way to put some ribbon around the WSOP in 2020 and wrap it up.

ESPN did its job and made the WSOP look very good. What had been a complicated layout of the 2020 Main Event journey came down to an understandable explanation as narrated by Lon McEachern and Jamie Kerstetter, with highlights from Jeff Platt.

Far more than in some past broadcasts, the 2020 WSOP Main Event delivered interesting player stories. Perhaps it was easier this time because so many of them were likeable. They started off with a player who donated everything to charity. And those two finalists were particularly affable and endearing, both with remarkable stories that led them to that point in their poker lives.

Watch the 2020 Main Event tonight at 8pm ET on ESPN2 ! @[email protected]@[email protected]/cAzZi9QTqi

— WSOP (@WSOP) February 28, 2021

Unprecedently Unprecedented

McEachern and Kerstetter did a masterful job of commentating hours of poker television filmed during a pandemic without overusing words like pandemic and unprecedented.


As for the commentators, I would’ve liked to have seen McEachern address the absence of Noman Chad directly and early in the first hour. McEachern had said on Twitter that Chad was still suffering the after-effects of his 2020 bout with Covid-19, but it would’ve been nice to see a quick video from Chad or more of an acknowledgement in some way.

We are squadoosh without you @NormanChadhttps://t.co/0Etd0Cad6M

— Jamie Kerstetter (@JamieKerstetter) February 25, 2021

They did address Kara Scott’s absence in that she was in Italy and unable to travel due to pandemic restrictions. And she sent a video addressing the audience to say that she missed being in Las Vegas for the WSOP.

Platt provided key interviews and informational briefs, such as explaining the rule that disqualified Upeshka De Silva from playing the US final table due to a positive Covid-19 test. Platt also made the social distancing required during interviews not seem so awkward. He’s a professional who adapted to the situation.

As for the poker, McEachern started it fittingly by saying, “For fifty years, from around the globe, they came to Las Vegas to compete in the World Series of Poker. But in 2020, the World Series had to go to them, and that it did.”

Filling in the Blank Spaces

McEachern and Kerstetter had to tackle voiceover work for poker tables that played quieter than usual. At the Rio, there were no audiences around the final tables, no family members and friends, no reporters circling for chip counts or even Jack Effel calling the action on stage.

Players were exceptionally quiet during the play, both at the US and international final tables, but Kerstetter and McEachern erased the silence with almost seamless commentary. They appeared to work well together, albeit virtually, and made the action flow.

Two players mostly dominated the US final table with their touching stories.

One came from Gershon Distenfeld, who spoke honestly about having made sufficient money earlier in life to be able to donate a lot of time and money to charities. He played specifically to win money that he would distribute to charity. Joseph Hebert also dominated coverage, not only because he came in as the chip leader and crushed the table, but he also had a story about his mother dying earlier in 2020. Following up on a Twitter campaign of #ForLinda, Hebert talked about his mom and her support for his love of poker.

By the third hour, when the cameras focused on the international final table, no one player emerged as a favorite during the action. There wasn’t much time to do so, and Damian Salas seriously dominated the action. Pictures of his family helped endear him to viewers, as did a WSOP bracelet that his young daughter made for him.

It was disappointing to see that the international players were slighted in the coverage of their final table, given only half the airtime of their US counterparts.

Making Heads-Up Exciting and Heartbreaking

The final hour of ESPN coverage of the 2020 WSOP Main Event was the heads-up match. They played more than 170 hands, which can be utterly boring to the average poker fan.

ESPN worked its magic, though. Salas and Hebert told more of their personal stories, their journeys in poker and life. Viewers could cheer for either player for different reasons. Mixing that with key hands worked for the hour-long episode.

Congratulations Damian Salas for winning the 2020 WSOP Main Event Heads-Up finale at the @RioVegas. He earns the title of 2020 World Champion, the Main Event bracelet plus the added $1M in prize money. pic.twitter.com/1YpV5uBLom

— WSOP (@WSOP) January 4, 2021

The ending was disappointingly sad, though.

Salas won the match fair and square, and the two shared a warm handshake/embrace as they seemed to congratulate each other and show a lot of respect.

Then, Salas ran out of the ballroom, and the cameras watched him singing as he raced to the doors to find his family and friends. He wanted to celebrate with them. Instead of flashing to footage of that celebration, the cameras focused on Hebert, alone at the table, gathering his belongings and sadly preparing to leave.

Ultimately, Platt spoke to both finalists. Salas returned to the table to take pictures with the bracelet and piles of cash, and he answered some questions in an interview format. With that, the show did end on a high note, but it was difficult to get the picture of a despondent-looking Hebert out of one’s mind.

Overall Positive Review

For those interested in the play leading up to the ESPN broadcasts, Kerstetter and McEachern commentated on some of the online action. There are two episodes – approximately a half-hour each. (It would have been nice if everyone tuning in to the ESPN broadcasts this weekend would have known about these two videos prior. They could have seen the information about Norman Chad and acquired quite a bit of other information to preface the ESPN episodes.)

Kerstetter wrapped up the coverage with this: “This heads-up match had two heroes and no villains, two likeable family guys, experienced players who comported themselves with class throughout.”

It is rare that the WSOP is able to focus so much on heads-up opponents and find that both of them are as Kerstetter described. Both were passionate and thoughtful about poker, both motivated and competitive but friendly to each other despite a language barrier. Just as play started, Salas and Hebert both put on their sunglasses at the same time – a symbolic moment.

Stock Poker Leaderboard

Even better, both players wore their hearts on their sleeves. Both men were extremely proud fathers and close to their families. Both were not afraid to let their emotions show, both in victory and defeat.

With Salas at 45 years old and Hebert at 38, both men had enough life experience to know how to handle themselves in such a situation, both authentic and respectful of each other and the moment.

From a personal standpoint, I enjoyed hearing a woman’s voice throughout the broadcast. I not only know Kerstetter to be a lovely person, I know that she is wicked smart. She brought her unique wit to the commentary and balanced it nicely with her intense knowledge of poker.

In a year when the pandemic turned everything on its head, including all aspects of poker, the WSOP and ESPN put together four hours of solid coverage of the 2020 Main Event.

Stark Contrast to General 2020 WSOP

Let’s be honest. The World Series of Poker racked up many missteps and oversights in the past year.

I can start with some basics like marketing and public relations…

There were many points throughout 2020 that the WSOP website offered no – or limited – information about activities on the horizon. In addition, the WSOP’s social media accounts also lacked info. The Twitter account had been – years ago – a place to find series and tournament details, names of winners, and general reminders of upcoming events. That was often not the case in 2020.

As the most recent example, the WSOP website didn’t mention anything about the ESPN coverage. ESPN announced it last week…just days before the air date. It would be nice if the WSOP thought enough of its fans to give ample notice of broadcasts.

At one time, there were people (hi Kevmath!) who handled the WSOP’s Twitter account, at least during large events, to answer questions and post updates. Most Twitter requests and questions now go completely unanswered and unaddressed.

In my efforts to try to summarize WSOP news and action in small news pieces for this website, I tried to find information on the WSOP site throughout the year. I quickly found that tournament results either contained errors, were incomplete, or did not appear at all. PokerNews became my go-to site for all information beyond the tournament results that I could obtain from the WSOP.com downloaded online poker site myself. The company’s website became relatively useless.

The WSOP also claimed to track leaderboards for players in the various online series, both in the US and on GGPoker. However, they rarely updated the WSOP website in a timely fashion…if at all.

The WSOP website has been sadly lacking most info during this series. Live updates missing, tournament totals wrong, etc. I found everything I needed on @PokerNews (except leaderboard, waiting for press release for final info).

— Jennifer Newell (@WriterJen) August 2, 2020

When the WSOP introduced its new sweepstakes in 2021 to offer the Ultimate Poker Champion Experience, the promotion’s page on the website noted that they will accept entries through April 31. (April has 30 days.) Someone corrected that at some point, but the page still notes that the winner will participate in a whiskey and cigar paring. (Usually, people pair those things instead of paring them.)

Yes, although I missed that myself 🤦🏻‍♂️ pic.twitter.com/V6co7T34VJ

The bottom line is that the WSOP needs an editor, not to mention someone who can input tournament results and leaderboard points. They also need someone to manage their social media accounts in order to be informative, timely, and responsive.

I’m no business executive or marketing guru, but the aforementioned issues seem preventable. A brand that wants to continue to grow should make sure they take care of the basics and show that they value all of their customers.

Feeling good about my decision to skip this one. WSOP takes 12K out of people's accounts when they post the wrong payout info. I'm simply giddy sitting here thinking about what they'll do when there's no prize pool at all! pic.twitter.com/ch5u8gKAeW
