The World Poker Tour (WPT) is a collection of international poker tournaments and is made up of different events. WPT began in the U.S. in 2002 and has been a strong international poker event ever since. The main event in WPT is the Five Diamond World Poker Classic which James Romero won this year (2016). Romero pocketed a cool $ 1,938 Million in the main event of WPT 2016. The main event attracts some of the best poker players from around the world to test their tenacity and expertise in the game.
Romero’s previous big win in a poker tournament was only $ 3 803, which is a huge leap to $ 1, 938, 118. The Five Diamond World Poker Classic event had 791 entries, making it the biggest main event in the history of the WPT. Somehow Romero managed to best 791 other players before arriving at the final table with a considerable chip lead. Taking into account his chip lead, Romero was in an ideal position and was never really in any deep water at the final table.
Romero faced some well-known professional poker players at the final table, including the likes of Taylor Paur, Chris Klodnicki, Igor Yaroshevskyy, Justin Bonomo, and Alex Condon. Initial action at the final table was slow with the first form of confrontation only taking place on the 42nd hand. The final hand proved to be an exciting outcome between Romero and Ryan Tosoc. Tosoc went all in for $ 1. 975 and had pocket fives while Romero had pocket Kings. The cards on the table were dealt: Ace of Hearts, Jack of Diamonds, Nine of Clubs, Four of Spades, and Six of Clubs. The result ended with Romero winning the pot and Tosoc finishing second while earning $ 1, 124 Million.
Here is a list of the results of the final table:

It’s the only b2b event that draws over 28, 000 visitors from over 150 countries.
There’s 40,925 square meters of floor space which means there’ll be more space for exhibitors (over 500 exhibitors to be exact). It’s also expected that the event will be well-covered as 130 journalists and publishers are expected to attend the 2017 gaming technology event.

We’ve been promised a lot of amazing film titles this year and we’re hoping we won’t be let down by some of these promising movies. Below is a tiny snippet of movies that are worth a watch and are due to be released in the early months of 2017.
Genre: Action, Thriller
It’s been awhile since we last heard about the xXx franchise and most of us have probably forgotten about it. This new movie sees Vin Diesel reclaim the iconic role of Xander Cage (an extreme athlete who starts working for the government). The plot of this new movie includes a deadly weapon as well as a brand new team of badasses. It’s safe to say that it ticks all of the boxes of a standard action-type film. The cast, however, will undoubtedly have an influence on whether you want to watch this movie or not. Some of the major names include: Vin Diesel, Samuel L. Jackson, Tony Jaa, Jet Li, and Nina Dobrev (who you’ll remember from ‘The vampire Diaries’ series).
‘Founder’ is the story of one of the world’s largest fast food franchises. It’s based on a true story and is about how a salesman from Illinois (played by Michael Keaton) found and turned a fast food restaurant into one of the biggest businesses the world has seen. This is the origin story of McDonald’s and deserves a watch because it’s the story of how this glorious franchise came to be.
‘Rings’ is the third instalment in the American version of the ‘Ring’ franchise. The film is set to be released early in February. The story of ‘Rings’ takes place 13 years after the first two films in the franchise. The plot follows Holt’s (Rex Roe) obsession with an urban legend that tells the tale of a video that is said to kill the person who watches it after seven days. This may sound fairly similar to the previous two films, however, there is a twist. Julia (played by Matilda Lutz) discovers that there is movie within a movie that no one has ever seen. This film has potential to delight horror fans everywhere.
King Kong is not a newcomer to the big screen as this colossal monster ape first appeared on the big screen in 1933 and has been making an appearance ever since. ‘Kong: Skull Island is set to be released in the States early this March. The film follows a group of explorers and soldiers who travel to an unchartered island and encounter a host of monstrous creatures including Kong. The cast includes the likes of Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Toby Kebbel, and Samuel. L. Jackson. This film promises to deliver a great epic fantasy of sorts.
‘Beauty and the Beast’ can definitely be considered as ‘a tale as old as time’. This new version was first announced in 2015 and has been highly anticipated among movie lovers all over the world. It’s a live-action film that follows the same story as the original classic Disney fairy-tale. The tale follows the story of prince who appears as a hideous monster and Belle who eventually befriends and falls in love with him despite his appearance. The cast includes Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, and Ewan McGregor.

Firstly, poker is a game of imperfect information. A game of perfect information means that all players are aware of all events, information, and knowledge in a game. This means that when a player makes a decision, they’re well-informed of all the events that have previously taken place. Things get interesting in a game of imperfect information like poker where an opponent’s hand remains an unknown variable. Things get even more interesting when an A.I. program tries to overcome the obstacle of imperfect information in a game of no-limit Texas hold’em. Libratus had to develop the perfect strategy of bluffing and not bluffing while also simultaneously randomizing play.
While on the surface, the AI victory over humankind in no-limit Texas hold’em may seem trivial it actually has a massive implication on the future use and development of AI. Since it’s now discovered that AI can do well with unpredictable behavior and incomplete information, it could potentially be used in detect and fight against fraud and cyber attacks. AI could also potentially be used to diagnose medical problems inpatients (although this does seem quite far into the future). Probably one of the most apt uses for AI would be utilizing it in complex business transactions.
Libratus’ victory in poker is not just a frivolous game win for a machine, it means that AI can, in fact, solve and interpret a range of problems and situations with incomplete information.
Fans of the Jurassic Park franchise and the Jurassic Park slot game will be thrilled to hear that Microgaming™ has announced they will be creating the Jurassic World slot game. The blockbuster film premiered in 2015 and grossed a worldwide total of $1.670 billion and had a meager budget (by comparison) of $150 million. Suffice to say, Microgaming™ celebrated the agreement they signed with Universal Brand Development appropriately on the first day of the ICE Totally Gaming exhibition.
The software conglomerate has hosted a bar every year for the past decade at the event, but this year visitors can look forward to something special at the Microgaming™ Bar. This year guests will be treated to an elaborate Jurassic World themed exhibition. Included in the exhibition is an installation of a massive genetically modified marine reptile (Mosasaurus). To add to the prehistoric ambiance are dinosaur eggs and mosquitoes preserved in amber. Guests will additionally be treated to an audio-visual experience (spaced at two-hour intervals throughout the day) where the Mosasaurus will come to life.
Microgaming™ will also be running a social media competition for ICE Totally Gaming attendees. Attendees to the event will have the chance to win tickets to the Dino Snores for Grown-ups at the Natural Museum in London. People interested in the competition can enter by sharing their experiences with Mosasaurus at the Microgaming ™ Bar on social media.
Jurassic Park has grown into a massive and lucrative franchise over the past two decades.

The festival lasts for 10 days and has three major forums that include music, film and an interactive element (largely focused on new technology). We’ll take a look at some of the most noteworthy things that SXSW had to offer visitors this year.
Game of Thrones creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were
Google and Levi’s teamed up to create a smart wearable denim jacket. The jacket utilizes Google ATAP’s ‘project jacquard’ technology which uses conductive threads.
