Ivey League Overload, Caesars Eyes Revel
After months of waiting, Ivey Poker finally launched its online poker training site while Caesars looks to purchase another Atlantic City casino.
Ivey League Finally Launches
For months Ivey Poker touted the relaunch of poker training site LeggoPoker as the Ivey League.
LeggoPoker released emails to current subscribers revealing the launch for Tuesday and the world finally got to login and learn from Phil Ivey.
Just one problem: the company failed to anticipate demand and it caused a server overload. After a period of downtime to increase capacity, the site relaunched.
Ivey League offers three subscription tiers to users. The Undergraduate is free and is bare-bones materials along with access to forums. Bachelors access allows users to access low-stakes videos. Masters access gives users access to mid-stakes and high-stakes videos.
Ivey League will use several "Team Ivey Pros" along with former LeggoPoker coaches to create training material for users.
Caesars May Bid on Revel Casino
Yet another Atlantic City casino may change hands in the upcoming weeks. Bids for Atlantic City's Revel Casino are due next week and the city's largest casino company has reportedly expressed an interest.
Bloomberg spoke with "anonymous sources" that say Caesars may put in a bid for the casino. Should this happen, Revel would become the fifth operational casino under the Caesars brand.
Caesars recently joined Tropicana in buying out The Atlantic Club and subsequently shut the doors of the decades-old casino. Eleven casinos currently operate in the city with Caesars owning four. Caesars is also building a convention center in the city.
