While much of the country is snowed in and dealing with frosty weather, there is plenty of sun and cool temps in SoCal as the L.A. Poker Classic continues this week after kicking off on Jan. 9. With 67 events planned and the annual $10,000 Main Event promising a big field, a final table appearance on the World Poker Tour, and a $1 million guaranteed payday, there should be no shortage of rounders ready for action as the series celebrates 25 years of California card-playing.
Sun, fun, cards – and maybe even a nice frozen drink. The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure returns to the beautiful Atlantis Paradise Island Resort this weekend with action for every bankroll running January 6-14. Since its inception in 2004, the PCA has become one of the favorites on the tournament schedule for many players seeking a post-holiday getaway and plenty of sunshine in the Bahamas. With this year marking the 15th anniversary of the series, events are set to get underway on Saturday.
It’s the hand that put you into the money. Or the two cards that propelled you to a nice cash. Everyone has “the hand” — that one that you remember no matter how many tournaments or cash games played. PokerNews takes a look at those hands that stick with players and relive the glory, or misery, depending on the results. Jaime Staples, who hails from Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, is one of the young players bringing poker to the Twitch generation and helping to grow the game among the gaming crowd.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
