Forty Percent Increase in Revenues of World เเทงหวยออนไลน์ Tour Enterprises, in the Second Quarter

World เเทงหวยออนไลน์ Tour Enterprises Inc. (WPTE) has released its financial results this week, for the second quarter. This was done in order to comply with the SEC standards for punctual reporting. In the second quarter  of the financial year 2005 there was a huger 40 percent increment in revenues. Revenues hit a high figure of $6.6 million. Explaining this increment, WPTE stated that it was due to increased revenues earned through international television licensing.

WPTE has officially launched its online poker room,, during this quarter. reports:
“The second quarter marked the continued successful execution of our strategic plan. Revenues were up 40 percent as we saw growth in virtually all our business segments,” commented Steve Lipscomb, President and CEO of WPT Enterprise. “The success of the show in the US, combined with strong ratings in international markets enabled us to broaden distribution into 116 territories around the globe.”
Phil Hellmuth – Master of the Game or Master of Publicity
1989 World Series of Poker saw one name make headlines all over. It was that of Phil Hellmuth who has quite a public persona. He has continuously showcased himself and poker in order to forge ahead and earn money in poker related events and deals rather than in actual poker games. Due to his hunger for publicity and because it is felt that he markets himself he has been put by many, among the the small group of ‘bad boys” of poker. Nevertheless, it cannot be denied that the image of a player goes a long way in putting a particular game into the limelight. Players with an attractive personality contribute to the coverage of the game in the media. Phil began playing poker when he was hardly 23 years old – a face totally unknown and with nothing to his credit. Today besides making a name for himself in the game, Phil is the author of several books, writes articles for Card Player and has made several instructional videos on the poker. reports:
Hellmuth’s WSOP record is simply amazing. He has won bracelets in limit, no-limit, and pot-limit hod’em, and made the final table in nearly all forms of poker.
Pacific Poker to buy PokerStars?
This is big news. Rumors about the impending consolidation of the online poker industry abound, and the latest rumor is that Cassava, owner of and Pacific Poker, are looking at purchasing PokerStars, which is the 2nd largest poker site online, right after Party Poker.
Pokerstars is one of the best-run and most-respected poker sites on the internet. They sponsor the World Championship of Online Poker, and they usually have more players at the World Series of Poker final table than any other online poker room. (Moneymaker and Raymer both won their way into the WSOP on Pokerstars.)
