'Forgot2piknik' Remembers to Win Leg 3

It was third time lucky for Jim forgot2piknik Parberry this week as he triumphed in the latest Black Belt Poker League event.

Earlier in the year Jim finished third in East End Live II for $5,700, and on Tuesday he added a further $93 to the bankroll courtesy of Leg 3.

A Yellow Belt on Black Belt Poker, Jim topped a field of 62, including final opponents stevegw and two-time League Champion JHobbit1.

Last week's winner, veg41, lost momentum with a 54th place finish, but runner-up AMANESS13 managed a second consecutive final table in 9th.

As always, there are plenty of tournaments throughout the week on Black Belt Poker, and you don't have to wait long to get back in the thick of the action…

Our 'Unbelievable, Jeff!' tournament was so well-received the first time around that we've decided to bring it back for a return leg.

Ticket price costs $10+1 with the starting whistle sounding tonight at 20:00.

As before, if you can predict the first team to score in tomorrow's 3pm Premiership games then we'll double your winnings.

To make your prediction simply post on the official thread on the boards (click 'Groups' in the above menu) before tonight's kick off.

Last time, Samurai Champion Ken NPStars1 Johnston doubled his fourth-place winnings after selecting Arsenal, who scored after just six minutes.

'NPStars1' Shines in Samurai

Swords clashed on the Black Belt Poker battlefield this week as Samurai returned for another night of poker warfare.

The last warrior sitting was Ken NPStars1 Johnston who slew Elysumjay heads-up to capture the illustrious title and $4,000 first prize.

In total, 38 players polished their armour to create a $550 overlay. Among the lineup were Richard Ashby, Jerome Bradpiece, David Pomroy and defending Champion Owen Ruaction Robinson.

Having missed out by one spot last time around, Neil Channing came close once again in seventh (aces cracked by fives). The splash of the bubble, however, was felt by Orange Belt PastiemanCnaC.

Making the money, and consequently the final table, were Black Belt Poker sponsored pro Jamie StilettoMafiosa Burland and East End Live II Champion Nik NikStilly Stylianou.

However, it was NPStars1 who reigned supreme. Hailing from Carlisle, Ken qualified for free courtesy of the Purple Belt Freeroll, and then continued momentum with victory in Monday's Nifty at Nine.

Ken also runs popular poker club Northern Poker Stars for players in the North of England and hosts a weekly online League event on Black Belt Poker every Tuesday at 19:30.

"It was indeed a fantastic tournament," beamed Ken, "and that is not a biased opinion. That [the tournament] was tough to take down and I must say that Jason [Elysiumjay] took some getting rid of.

"It was great to see all of the cash remain in the community, with players that support Black Belt week in, week out. $4,000 from a seat won in the PBF [Purple Belt Freeroll] - I love Black Belt!"

The next Samurai will arrive later in the year, but before then we have the return of Ninja this October 21-27. Check out our promotions page for the complete schedule.

1st  NPStars1 -- $4,000
2nd  Elysiumjay -- $2,300
3rd  NikStilly -- $1,600
4th  eixip50 -- $1,200
5ht  StilettoMafiosa -- $900

Meaty Win for 'Veg41'

It was Round 2 this week as the Black Belt Poker League returned to Super Tuesday for another knockout night.

The winner was Yellow Belt Trevor veg41 Kinsey who took the meat of the prize pool for a $114.00 payday. Darius AMANESS13 Demetriou finished second.

From the 76 field, just one would feel the splash of the bubble; that player was mikeymixitup who just missed out on the final after finishing seventh the week prior.

Meanwhile, Leg 1 winner Simon ourkidsid Herrick exited in 40th while defending League Champion Andrew LegendKing1 Dwyer fared better in 21st.

1st  veg41 -- $114.00
2nd  AMANESS13 -- $76.00
3rd  SturtSan -- $57.00
4th  eixip50 -- $38.00
5th  LillJem -- $28.50

7th  ASSASSIN1111 -- $17.10
8th  shaolin4aces -- $15.20
9th  kippery -- $13.30

Stephen eixip50 Andrews' second consecutive final table means he now leads the standings with 177 points. Just 7 points behind lies Purple Belt LillJem.

1st  eixip50 -- 177 points
2nd  LillJem -- 170 points

Sun, Sea... Poker!

The current heatwave may have given the local suntan lotion industry a surprise boost, but warm weather in the UK is like a disobedient puppy - it doesn't stay for long.

But don't worry, as Black Belt Poker are giving you the chance to avoid the November rain and continue basking in the sunny spells with iPoker's Caribbean Poker Tour.

Taking place from November 08-25, players will be jetting off to the exotic islands of Punta Cana and St. Maarten for a daily dose of sun, sea and poker.

The first event will be the Caribbean Open in Punta Cana on November 08-15, culminating in a €1,170 Main Event. Then on November 15-25, players will move on to St. Maarten to play in the CPT Open.

There are three packages up for grabs such as the Ultimate Caribbean Experience which includes entry into both Main Events as well as a host of other juicy delights.

If you fancy the taste of paradise, then check out our weekly satellites now:

The Ultimate Caribbean Experience
Sundays (20:00) - €300+30 NLH Freezeout

The Punta Cana Experience
Mondays (20:30) - €150+15 NLH Freezeout

The St. Maarten Experience

Wednesdays (20:30) - €180+20 NLH Freezeout

If the buy-ins sound too spicy for your poker cocktail, then we have a plethora of feeders running throughout the week to keep you nice and refreshed.

For the full line-up of satellites, simply log in to the Black Belt Poker client and check out the 'Caribbean Poker Tour' tab in the main lobby.

Sick of coolers and cold decks? Make sure you think ahead this autumn and exchange the inevitable British rainfall for the hot poker fun of the Caribbean.

See our promotions page for more information.

The first leg will take place on August 13.

If you can't make all the legs, then don't worry as all tournament winners will be invited to compete for a Ninja season ticket in our Second Chance SNG, meaning even if you only play one event, you can still win a star prize.

For those who can make all eight legs, you'll be rewarded with an additional 150 Belt Points credited into your account. That's extra value just for turning up, regardless of your final position in the standings.

In the last venture, Andrew LegendKing1 Dwyer snapped up the title at his first attempt, thus becoming the first player to win both the League and Samurai titles.

This time around, it could be you...

Ninja III: Online Poker Series

After months of lurking in the shadows, Ninja is back and ready to pounce with another series of exclusive online poker tournaments.

Running from October 21-27, Ninja III will see players battle it out across six eclectic events with buy-ins from as little as $5+0.50 and culminating in a $50+5 Main Event.

The full schedule is as follows:

Mon, Oct 21 - Ninja #1: $10+1 Hold'em Freezeout
Tue, Oct 22 - Ninja #2: $20+2 Hold'em Six-Max
Wed, Oct 23 - Ninja #3: $15+1.50 Hold'em Deepstack
Thu, Oct 24 - Ninja #4: $7.50+1 Hold'em Bounty K/O
Fri, Oct 25 - Ninja #5: $5+0.50 Omaha 1 x Rebuy
Sat, Oct 26 - Main Event Mega: $8+0.80 Hold'em Satellite
Sun, Oct 27 - Ninja Main Event: $50+5 Hold'em Freezeout

Ninja is available to players of all bankrolls with qualifiers from as little as a single buck. Details of all satellites and feeders will be announced later this month.

"Poker players love to wear a hoodie while playing poker," commented Ninja King and Black Belt Poker co-founder Neil Channing. "With Ninja we're giving them the perfect opportunity to don their hoods and test their skills against some of our pros.

"We received very positive feedback on our two previous efforts," he continued. "I think in today's climate people appreciate the chance to play good-structured online tournaments at an affordable price."

Last time, Martin BoomBoom999 Sutcliffe topped a field of 96 to take home the Main Event title and $1,320 first prize. Meanwhile, former League Champion Timothy HammerHorror O'Mahoney earned a free East End Live seat courtesy of the Full Ninja Freeroll.

If you would like to echo Martin's achievement, then mark the aforementioned dates in your calendar and keep your eye on the site over the coming weeks as we announce satellite dates and added bonuses.

Ninja is an exciting series that offers low stakes players a chance to showcase their mad ninja poker skillz for a modest fee. If you want to play, then start by downloading the poker client
and getting yourself warmed up for the October festivities.
