Bodog.com has launched a new Bodog-branded poker network. Patrik Selin, founder of Ongame and more recently Gnuf, is the network's chief executive and president. Selin will develop the new Bodog-branded poker network. Selin said: "I intend to build one of the largest and most reputable poker networks in the world."

The company announced earlier this month that it would begin accepting players from Canada, something they have not done this entire decade to date.

 .... PokerStars.com is the headline sponsor of poker tours in Europe, Asia and Pacific Latin America (http://www.lapt.com) and beyond but the latest addition is played about three inches off the ground – theoretically at least. The High Heels Poker Tour (HHPT) now has the world’s largest poker school on board - PokerStars.net. Founded in 2007 the HHPT was created to empower women, who make up 25 per cent of poker players, to become poker champions, offering the best environment for women to learn the game. PokerStars will support the tour’s growing calendar of tournaments, the next of which take place in Florida. Prize money, competition and friendships will be up for grabs with the grand final taking place at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in January.

.....The Commerce Casino is holding an Iron Man tournament.  The Commerce Hold'em Series, which runs Sept. 10-27, is underway in L.A and there are some very unique events on the schedule, reports Poker Listings.

On Sept. 23 the Commerce will be hosting an "Ironman" tournament, which will give players 10,000 chips, one hour levels and blinds moving at a snail's pace.

The catch? Absolutely no breaks.

The entire tournament will play from start to finish with no interruptions. The casino will provide three meals at the tables, but other than that players are on their own.

The tournament will only be paying the final table and 50% of the prizepool will be going to first place.

.....Children's Institute Holds Poker Tournament. One of Los Angeles` Preeminent Child Services Organizations To HoldFirst Annual Celebrity Poker Tournament to Benefit Traumatized Children on Saturday, October 17, 2009 at the Commerce Casino.

Children`s Institute, Inc. helps children who have been affected by violence intheir homes or communities.Since 1906, CII has served at-risk children and families in some of Los Angeles` most devastated neighborhoods.CII provides healing and support so that traumatized children can recover and lead healthy lives.We lead children away from tragic outcomes and on a path toward opportunity and achievement.
