UPDATE: 8/26, 8:30pm EST: The former $60k GTD Pro Elite Bounty MTT has been further reduced to a $50,000 GTD amount for next Sunday (September 1st). The tournament featured 388 players this past Sunday, down from 436 players on 8/11 (when it was a $75k GTD event) and 426 players on 8/18. No immediate word on whether this is due to the event's penchant for continued overlays, or if it's a pre-emptive measure on the heels of the upcoming American Labor Day weekend.

Cake Poker Renamed "Win Cake", Somehow Doesn't Magically Alter Public's Perception

Win Cake?

Cake Poker recently renamed itself "Win Cake" in an effort to make all of the juicy (not stakes, or steaks for that matter) goodness they have to offer sound almost good enough to eat. Too bad no one has fallen for the ploy - and their offerings still taste like the back of a well-worn shoe.
