The first-ever WPT Amsterdam tournament, hosted by Holland Casino, is entering its final stage. The six-handed final table of the €3,300 Main Event is to start today at 2:00 pm local time.

The event attracted a total of 341 players who created a prize pool of €992,310. The champion is to receive the amount of €215,000. Those who finish 2nd and 3rd will be paid €150,000 and €90,000, respectively.

As mentioned above, Day 4 of the Main Event will see 6 players returning to be seated at the final table. It will start with Steve Warburton from the UK as the chip leader. Up to now, the player has 2,810,000 in chips. He is followed by Fredrik Andersson from Sweden with 2,195,000 and Dutchman Joep van den Bijgaart with 1,650,000. In fact, the latter is among the favorites for the title.

Bijgaart’s fellow countryman Kees van Brugge (1,270,000), Farid Yachou (1,195,000), and WPT Amsterdam €6,000 High Roller winner Jason Wheeler (1,095,000) are the other three players who will be trying to capture the title and the first-place prize.

Players like Canadian poker pro Sorel Mizzi, as well as former WPT champions Dominik Nitsche and Yevgeny Timoshenko were among those who could not make it to the final table.

Day 3 chip leader Steve Warburton has cashed in about 30 events so far. The UK-based player could occasionally be spotted at UKIPT and Genting Poker Series tournaments. Last year, he was seen at the 45th WSOP in Las Vegas, where he cashed in two No-Limit Hold’em events. However, this is the first time that he has made it to the money in a WPT event.

Warburton’s biggest live tournament winning amounts to £39,000 ($65,084). He got it for finishing 3rd at the 2014 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour £1,000 + 80 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event. Overall, his live tournament earnings total $300,778. Being among the chip leaders of the WPT Amsterdam Main Event, the player has every chance to almost double up this amount.

As already mentioned, action resumes at 2:00 local time. Apart from winning the first-place prize of €215,000, the champion will also secure a seat into the WPT Season XIV Championship, which is to be held next spring.

The WPT will next be heading to Las Vegas for an exciting WPT500 tournament at the Aria Resort Casino, presented by partypoker.

Five one-day events will be held in New York, San Francisco, London, Amsterdam and Tokyo next month, with the goal of attracting more enterprise interest in its cloud computing platform.

Google is expanding its efforts to get more businesses to notice its array of cloud computing technologies.
Google’s cloud platform team will hold live events in five major cities this June where it will have customers and developers talk about their experiences with the company’s cloud computing technology.
The events are a bid by Google to give current and potential customers a firsthand look at how people are using its cloud computing platform. The event series is titled “Next” and will be held in New York; San Francisco; Tokyo; Amsterdam, Netherlands; and London next month.
A Google spokeswoman on Thursday said the company has more event locations in the works, but did not disclose where or when those events will be held.

The Next series will feature case studies from companies such as Avaya, Snapchat, DeNA and Outfit7. The goal is to give people who attend the events a flavor of how such companies are using Google cloud technologies in mobile, big data, network and compute-intensive applications.

Also featured at the events will be representatives from several Google partners, including PwC, Fastly, Tableau and Equinix. Each partner will share details on products and services they offer to help enterprises with data-intensive workloads use cloud technologies more effectively.
In addition, there will be hands-on labs at the events where businesses will have an opportunity to take a closer look at Google’s cloud offering and even get some training on them, according to the company.
Each event will feature a developer stream and an IT business stream. Planned sessions include a developer’s guide to the Google cloud platform and sessions on the company’s Kubernetes container technology and alternatives to Google’s MapReduce big data technology. Business stream sessions will include presentations from several Google technology partners.
The events are open to all comers, and registration is free.
Google’s planned global event series builds on the company’s efforts to attract more enterprise interest in its cloud computing platform. The company’s cloud platform business has been growing at a steady clip. Year-over-year, its cloud infrastructure services business grew over 80 percent, according to Synergy Research.
The company ranks only behind Amazon and Microsoft in terms of market share growth. Yet, Google’s overall cloud market share of 5 percent lags far behind Amazon’s dominating 30 percent and well behind Microsoft’s 10 percent market share.
In a Piper Jaffray survey of CIOs earlier this year, existing customers of Google said they expect to buy more cloud services from Google this year. At the same time, when the CIOs in the survey were asked to choose their preferred cloud vendor, only about 7 percent chose Google, compared with 12 percent who said the same thing last year. The Piper Jaffray report did not offer any explanations for the apparent decline in Google’s popularity among CIOs over the past year.

“Mother’s Day will never be the same for my sisters and I,” said Tanika Zigler, the aunt of 15-year-old Al-Shakeen Woodson, during a recent news radio interview. “Never.”

Woodson was left dead and three other men were injured after a shooting in Newark at the “Blessing of the Bikes” event Mother’s Day.

Reports indicate the shooting took place in the South Ward around 7:45 p.m. Sunday. As of Wednesday, no arrests have been made in connection with the shooting.

“This investigation is active,” said Essex County Prosecutor’s Office Chief of Detectives Anthony Ambrose. “We are combing the streets. We are out there at the scene right now looking for evidence and looking for witnesses to come forward.”

A video on social media shows a woman performing CPR on the teen in front of crowd of people. Woodson was taken to the hospital where he died just 15 minutes after the shooting.

“All I know is that he was a good kid … he did not deserve it,” Woodson’s mother said in a radio interview.

Since the shooting, there has been a debate over the “Blessing of the Bikes” event, which has been held for more than 40 years. Police were on the scene for the event; however, safety concerns still linger.

The Newark Knights and other bike club officials who host the event said the shooting occurred hours after the event ended, blocks away. The event is dubbed a peaceful event to kick off the biking season, drawing people from across the area.

More than 2,000 people were reportedly on the scene when Woodson was shot.

At a press conference Monday, Newark Mayor Ras Baraka called the shooters “cowards” and vowed the suspects will be caught and to make changes to city policies.

Baraka said police did not authorize the event, but a permit from the city allowed the annual event to take place.

“We need to make sure that the mayor’s office has a final say so on all large activities, events, festivals and permits,” he said. “Never again will the city issue a permit to have an event that scale without the mayor’s approval.”

The mayor questioned whether a festival permit was even taken out by the Newark Knights. Baraka said the city would not approve one, citing that it would cost the city money for cleanup and police patrols.

Gala e transmisa in direct de Sport.ro de la 20:00

Promotia Superkombat revine la Bucuresti, pe 23 mai, la Sala Polivalenta, cu un spectacol incendiar si din care nu vor lipsi fratii Bogdan si Andrei Stoica, iar o parte din incasari va fi donata unor spitale de oncologie. Cele mai ieftine bilete costa 20 de lei si s-au pus deja in vanzare, acestea putand fi achizitionate din reteaua eventim.ro, magazinele Germanos, Vodafone si Orange.

Sunt copii care n-apuca sa numere pana la 10. Daca viata e o lupta, cine ii invata s-o faca Knock Out? Fratii Stoica, Gladiatorul Ristea, Lunetistul Spetcu dau pumni intr-o gala cum nu s-a mai vazut! Supereroii Romaniei – se lupta cu monstrii Europei. Incaseaza pumni si bani pentru copiii bolnavi ai Romaniei!

Sambata de la 8 seara, in direct la Sport.ro: Gala Invingatorilor. KO pentru Viata! Da-i bataie!

Unul dintre cei mai mari luptatori al tuturor timpurilor, surinamezul Remy Bonjasky, va fi prezent pe 23 mai, la Sala Polivalenta din Bucuresti, pentru a asista la gala Superkombat.

In varsta de 39 de ani, Bonjasky, poreclit “The Flying Gentlemen”, are in palmares trei titluri de campion mondial K-1, in Japonia, si de-a lungul timpului a invins legende precum Ray Sefo, Ernesto Hoost, Francois Both, Cro Cop si Alistair Overeem.

“Intotdeauna este o placere sa vin in Romania, oamenii sunt primitori, iar galele Superkombat au ajuns la un nivel extraordinar. Anul trecut am fost la doua dintre ele, la Constanta si Almere, si ma astept ca si cea de la Bucuresti sa fie la fel de spectaculoasa”, a spus starul originar din Paramaribo, care a donat si o pereche de manusi cu autograf pentru licitatia caritabila care va avea loc vineri, 15 mai, la Ambasad’Or Events in Otopeni si la care participa mai multi sportivi mari din Romania.
