McLaren Racing driver Daniel Ricciardo knows what it's like to operate at peak performance. Both he and his car need to operate at the outer limits of their ability on race day to stand a chance of winning, or even making it to the end of the race. But he also understands that being at your peak means being in control.
At the poker tables, players don't need to worry about spinning off the track into the wall from a momentary lapse of concentration, or a tire blowout at 200 kph because they didn't pull into the pits. But every poker player has experienced some proverbial version of those when they lose control and don't know when to take a break to fix the machinery.
"Only when we're in control are we in charge of our own race," Ricciardo said in a recent video. "It's sometimes important to hold back, take a break and take stock. It's important to know when it's time to pit."
Patrick Leonard is among the notables in the Irish Poker Masters KO Online Main Event Day 1a field with late registration open for another two and a half hours.
Other notables include Artur Martirosian, Steve O'Dwyer, Jans Arends, Ranno Sootla, Corentin Ropert and Sven Joakim Andersson.
Online poker sites invest countless hours and dollars into creating the perfect mobile app for their customers, partypoker included.
The partypoker mobile app is almost unrecognizable from a couple of years ago. You can tell from the second you fire it up that so much thought has gone into the latest incarnation.

Also in the field are partypoker Ambassador Matthew Staples and Louise Butler.

Satellite tournaments are extremely popular in the online poker world because they give players the opportunity to play in events they would not ordinarily be able to afford. Tournament dollar satellites take these tournaments to the next level by giving players the ultimate in flexibility. T$ satellites are available at partypoker.
Tournament dollar satellites play the same way as a traditional satellite but with one key difference. They pay out tournament dollars (T$), hence the name, instead of seats into specific tournaments and events.
This virtual currency gives you more flexibility when it comes to playing in higher stakes tournaments because you can spend them on multi-table tournament entries, to buy into Sit & Go tournaments, partypoker’s jackpot SPINS, and even the site’s online tour events. You can even use T$ to enter more satellites, including satellite dollar satellites!
