Online poker tournaments are massive on Sundays and this fact along brings out the game’s best players. Michael Addamo, Timothy Adams, and Justin Bonomo are just three of those stellar names who managed to take down a Sunday major this weekend.
Addamo Takes Down GGPoker Sunday 500 High Rollers $5,250
Michael Addamo enjoyed a super Sunday courtesy of triumphing in the Sunday 500 High Rollers $5,250, a tournament that attracted 113 of the world’s best players to the GGPoker virtual felt.
Addamo’s first bullet didn’t go to plan and he crashed out in 76th place. He re-entered and put used his new stack to full effect.
The likes of Kristen Bicknell, Matthias Eibinger, Elio Fox, Benjamin Rolle, and Anatoly Filatov busted inside the money places but before the star-studded final table.
Austria’s “Filip1” was the final table’s first casualty. Their ninth-place exit awarding a $14,833 prize.
Alex Foxen and David Yan then busted. Yan would go on to take down Sunday High Rollers Bounty King $3,150 for $49,300 later in the evening.
The exits of Michael Zhang, Aleksei Barkov, Pascal Hartmann, and David Peters left Addamo heads-up against Wiktor Malinowski. Addamo rarely loses when he’s heads-up and that was the case again here. Addamo collected $131,187 for his victory while Malinowski banked $99,898 for his runner-up finish.
Defeating Malinowski will go some way to making up for losing a massive $842,000 cash game pot last year.

This left Adams, on his one and only bullet, heads-up against Arsneii Malinov. Malinov fell at the final hurdle and scooped $36,565, which left Adams to add the $46,885 top prize to his GGPoker account.

Justin Bonomo Binks the partypoker High Roller Big Game
Justin Bonomo
Justin Bonomo, fresh from his recent Super MILLION$ victory, continued his impressive run of form by taking down the High Roller Big Game at partypoker. Bonomo came out on top of a 127-strong field in the $2,600 buy-in event to get his hands on $79,128.
The final table was brimming with the world’s top poker talent, as you’d expect from such a prestigious tournament.
Tomi Brouk busted in ninth and won $8,739, the tournament’s last four-figure prize. Ognyan Dimov, Roberto Romanello, and Pedro Garagnani were the next players to fall by the wayside. Niklas Astedt and Team partypoker’s Kristen Bicknell followed suit.
Ukraine’s Pavlo Kolinkovskiy’s elimination in third-place, worth $34,935, left Bonomo and Ali Imsirovic heads-up for the title. Bonomo got the job done and secured the $79,128 top prize, leaving Imsirovic to bank $79,128.

Peter “Belabasci” Traply triumphed in the PokerStars $215 Sunday Supersonic and banked a cool $20,378. That only tells part of the story, however, because the Sunday Supersonic is a hyper-turbo structured tournament meaning Traply’s victory only took one-hour 13-minutes for an hourly rate of $16,750, which is nice work if you can get it!

Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Thunder betting tips & predictions 09 01 21

Best Shows to Stream
February 16, 2021 0 Comments



Here are four cricket betting tips that Guy Giles thinks you should consider for the BBL 10 match between Perth Scorchers and Sydney Thunder on Saturday. 

Sydney Thunder to win
The Thunder have been the best team in the competition so far, winning six of their first eight matches, so are worth backing as slight underdogs here.
The Scorchers have recovered from a horrid start to win their last three on the bounce, but lost to Sydney by seven wickets earlier in the tournament.
Callum Ferguson to score over 22.5 runs
Ferguson has had a solid tournament for the Thunder, amassing 244 runs in eight matches to sit sixth in the runs table.
The Sydney skipper has passed this mark in five of those eight innings, including an unbeaten 61 against Perth in December.
Josh Inglis to score over 19.5 runs
Inglis has hit some form after a poor start to BBL 10, passing this mark in each of his last three innings.
He looks a good bet to continue that form on Saturday.
Tanveer Sangha to take over 1.5 wickets
Sangha continues to take wickets on a regular basis for the Thunder, claiming 15 so far to sit joint-top among all bowlers.
He has taken at least two scalps in four of his last five matches.

The Pros and Cons of Making a Living From Poker

ผู้ชนะการประชุมสุดยอด WSOP ประจำปี 2018
February 16, 2021 0 Comments


If you enjoy poker, making a living from playing this game seems like living the dream.

Do something you love, and it will never feel like work.

But, before you go all in, you should be aware of all of the pros and cons that come with playing poker for a living.
If you’re considering getting more serious about your potential poker career, here are some of the most prominent advantages and disadvantages that come with being a professional poker player.
The Advantages of Playing Poker for a Living
You Own Your Own Time
If you’re playing poker for a living, you’re effectively choosing your work hours. Being your own boss, especially in a career path such as this, means that you’re entirely free to tailor your own time and make the best of every day.
The hassle of working night shifts or waking up early every morning to drive to work won’t be a problem if you gown down this road.

Your “offices” are the online poker tables and live poker tournaments you choose to participate in.

Just keep in mind that you must maintain great discipline in such a job, as not to lose yourself in the flexibility and freedom of your own time.
No Salary Ceiling
The biggest reason most poker players want to go professional is the unlimited profit available for those who dare to claim it.
Although money shouldn’t be your primary motivator, it’s hard not to think about the multi-million prizes at the biggest poker tournaments in the world.
Even if you are just starting out playing online on real money poker sites, there are still countless options with prizes significantly more extensive than what most working people can earn in their day jobs.

Plus, the best part about this is that there’s no salary ceiling on how much you can bring home each month.
Living and Traveling Anywhere in the World
Another great advantage of playing poker for a living is that you can experience the feeling of always being on vacation while traveling for work and making money in the process.
If you plan on becoming a full-time poker player, you can look forward to frequently traveling to some of the biggest and most exciting cities in the world.

From Las Vegas and London to Barcelona and Monaco, you make your own schedule as packed or free as you wish.

Moreover, as a professional poker player, you have unlimited freedom in choosing a location where you want to settle down.
If you want to make your home in a sunny and warm place, you can select a popular poker destination such as the Caribbean.
This will allow you to enjoy endless summers while still being very close to some of the most popular and rewarding poker tournaments.
The Disadvantages of Playing Poker for a Living
No Guaranteed Income
The most significant benefit of a day job is that you know exactly how much money you’re earning every month.

When you switch up your day job for a professional poker career, this safety net disappears.

While it’s true that you’ll be able to win massive amounts of money potentially, there’s no telling when or even if this will come.
Instability of income is a typical tradeoff in many careers that offer a higher profit ceiling.
If you like playing it safe and can’t risk running a negative balance for a few weeks or months, pursuing a career in Texas Hold’em probably isn’t the best way to go.

That said, if you’re ready to accept the swings and have the mindset to handle the pressure of unstable earnings, you can turn this disadvantage into your advantage.
The Road to Success Can be Arduous
Watching Daniel Negreanu toy with his opponents makes it seem almost effortless. But, most of us forget that we’re watching the end result of years of studying the game and the psychology of their competitors.

All professional poker players have experienced great highs and lows throughout their long journey.

Don’t go into it thinking that it’s going a smooth ride all of the time. Confidence is a must-have, but you should continuously work on your skills to back this up.
Of course, some players have achieved great success in their first few years of playing the game, but these are outliers.
If you’re aiming to make poker your lifetime career, you need to arm yourself with patience and always remember that you’re in it for the long run, and variance will catch up with you eventually.
Stable Budget Needed to Start
Although poker offers you the opportunity to win a lot of money, you also need to have adequate starting capital before you even consider devoting all of your attention to the game.
The lack of money is one of the more significant reasons why most players don’t commit to playing poker professionally.
For many players, it can take years before they can get to a consistent level of winning in poker. If you don’t have the capital to start or a stable day job to cover your poker losses, you can quickly grow tired of the stress and grind.
It’s crucial to remember that success isn’t guaranteed and that you should never risk the money you can’t afford to lose. Learning good bankroll management is a must!

Are you Ready to Become a Professional Poker Player?
The hard truth is that not everyone is cut out to be a world-class poker player. But, with enough patience and work, you can make a great living from playing poker.
This is because, ultimately, the pros heavily outweigh the cons, and most players who truly commit to studying and learning the game can succeed in it.

If you’re passionate about poker and ready to put your energy into it, nothing is stopping you from making a career out of it.

To get some help on your path, check out the best poker training sites out there, as you’ll find plenty of great resources here.

Meet America’s 63rd National Park

Best Shows to Stream
February 16, 2021 0 Comments


As Americans continue to weather the pandemic, the $2.3 trillion coronavirus relief and spending bill passed by the federal government in December brought an unexpected and lasting gift: a new national park.The 5,593-page spending package included a raft of provisions authorizing little-known projects — the construction of the Teddy Roosevelt Presidential Library in North Dakota, for one — and giving lawmakers a chance to advance a variety of long-delayed initiatives. Among them was the elevation of the New River Gorge, in southern West Virginia, to the status of Yellowstone, Yosemite and the country’s other most renowned outdoor spaces. The designation of the area — roughly 72,000 acres of land flanking 53 miles of the gorge — as a national park and preserve creates the 63rd national park in the United States and completes a multigenerational effort, started in the mid-twentieth century, to transform a tired industrial area into a national landmark.“Towards the end of this year, with these big bills coming down, I decided to strike,” said Shelley Moore Capito, a Republican and the state’s junior senator, who, along with Senator Joe Manchin III, a Democrat, introduced the New River Gorge legislation in 2019.“This was the right opportunity,” she said.A draw for rafters, kayakers and other outdoor enthusiastsThe gorge and its surroundings have been prized for decades as one of southern West Virginia’s more spectacular natural places.In 1963, the West Virginia House of Delegates passed a resolution seeking to designate the New River Gorge as a “national playground,” preparing to send the proposal to President John F. Kennedy, whose primary campaign was lifted substantially through support from West Virginia voters. But momentum to create a national recreation area stalled after Mr. Kennedy’s assassination later that year.Though the gorge remained a curiosity among rafters and outdoor enthusiasts, the area only received federal protection from the Interior Department in 1978, when it was designated a national river.Now, the outdoor offerings in the gorge have come to define the area as a premier destination for adventure sports in the East.The New River plunges 750 feet over 66 miles, resulting in long stretches of violent rapids that can reach a class five level, generally considered the most difficult that can be navigated by white-water boaters. (Licensed outfitters operate in several towns near the river, providing rentals and tours for rafting and kayaking.)The canyon walls, which soar as high as 1,600 feet, offer miles of cliffs that rank among the best in the East Coast for rock climbing. Sheer faces in the gorge made of robust Nuttall sandstone provide both traditional and sport-climbing routes across the difficulty spectrum.Bike routes are scattered throughout the park on both sides of the river, with options for both technical mountain biking and more casual pedaling along former railroad beds.A glimpse back in timeAccording to the National Park Service, geologists believe the New River — its name a misnomer used by early American explorers who often assigned the same name to any river they came upon for the first time — was a segment of the preglacial Teays River. This larger river, which traversed much of the current Ohio River watershed, was later diverted and broken up by glaciers. The age of the Teays is uncertain, but fossil evidence suggests it could be as much as 320 million years old, leaving its remnant, the New River, as quite possibly the second oldest river in the world.Beyond the millions of years of geological history on display, the gorge is also filled with signs of the region’s heritage as a major coal production hub.Miners once capitalized on the easy access to rich deposits of high-quality bituminous coal in the canyon, where the river had already shorn through hundreds of feet of rock. Especially after the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway linked the New River coal fields to markets in 1873, dozens of boom towns popped up along the river’s edge, thriving well into the 1920s.In 1963, a coal mine was still operating in the gorge, said Dave Arnold, a state tourism commissioner who operated a rafting company for more than 40 years.“In ’76 or ’77, if you were in my boat, we’d have been floating down the river and I would have been showing you, ‘here’s an old coal tipple, here’s the old hotel at Caperton, here’s this and that,’” he said.The demand for coal around the turn of the twentieth century was so high that towns existed every half mile along up the river, according to the Park Service. As the industry went into decline, however, by the 1950s many were already abandoned, leaving ghost towns scattered throughout the gorge. Additionally, logging during the late nineteenth century stripped vast portions of the gorge bare, clearing enormous swaths of virgin forest.The park contains the remnants of communities such as Nuttallburg and Kaymoor, which still stand near the riverbank and are accessible from points higher up. Seams of exposed coal are visible along some trails leading into the gorge and its towns, where abandoned mine portals and the foundations of coke ovens remain.Restoring an ecosystem with diverse wildlifeDespite the environmental degradation and pollution that industry unleashed, some unique ecological features make the gorge well-suited to a diverse combination of wildlife, which has slowly reappeared as time has passed.The river lies at the center of a migration corridor where plants and animals that typically range further north or south come together, including several federally endangered and threatened species, such as the Virginia big-eared bat and the Allegheny woodrat.According to Lizzie Watts, the park’s superintendent, the river itself is also notably warmer than surrounding areas, making it a popular warm-water fishing destination with more than a dozen public access points. The river is one of the premier spots for smallmouth bass fishing on the east coast, and muskellunge and walleye are common in the park today.“The next generation will have the opportunity to see what, in the last 150 years, it looks like when an area goes from being logged and mined to left alone,” Ms. Watts said. “The ecosystem has come back to full trees and mature forests.”As federal protections took effect after the Park Service began overseeing the area as a national river in 1978, wildlife has largely recovered, and many see an opportunity to showcase the region’s natural elegance.“To show off our rock climbing, our extreme sports availabilities in that area, is just really exciting,” said Ms. Capito of what she described as a “kind of wild and wonderful part of our state.” ‘The cream of the crop’The National Park Service, created in 1916, oversees more than 400 areas across the country, including national monuments, seashores and battlefields as well as parks, which together total more than 85 million acres.While the new title for New River Gorge does not fundamentally alter the area’s day-to-day operations, both lawmakers and the Park Service tend to view “national parks” as the crown jewels of the park system — a protection granted to some of the largest and most prized tracts of the country.“National Park status is usually considered like the cream of the crop,” Ms. Watts said. “But it really is just another one of those names.”The New River Gorge does not match the scale of many national parks in the western United States, where Death Valley, the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone sprawl over more than 1 million acres each.Nevertheless, officials expect the new designation to bring a substantial influx of travelers, boosted in part by a dedicated set of enthusiasts who strive to visit every national park.In typical years, around 1.3 million travelers visit the gorge, according to the Park Service’s tourism data. Based on studies of other areas that received national park status, Ms. Capito said she expects to see visitors increase by as much as 20 percent.“It does feel like the very beginning stages of transformation for the whole area,” said Becky Sullivan, the executive director of the New River Gorge Convention and Visitors Bureau. “I’ll be very, very interested to see where we are in about 10 years.”Maintaining the community and its favored pastimesAs unique outdoor attractions throughout the Appalachian region have gained more national visibility, some concern has grown over the idea of a wealthy and mobile set from out of state trampling the communities adjacent to these places.West Virginia remains the second-poorest state in the country in terms of median household income, according to data collected by the United States Census Bureau. And while tourism has brought a needed injection of wealth to areas all around the gorge, it has also changed the makeup of neighboring communities, as more people have come to visit the park or settle down near it.Interest in the natural offerings around the park has brought slow but measurable change for small towns nearby like Fayetteville. Officials say that the advent of remote work during the pandemic has only hastened a trend of properties in the area being repurposed for vacation rentals and outsiders snapping up second homes.“You cannot find a house for sale in Fayetteville, because they’re just in such high demand,” said Sharon Cruikshank, the town’s mayor. “So that definitely changed the budgeting of the town as well as the county.”When legislation was first introduced to designate the area as a national park, pushback came from some locals. Hunters have long enjoyed access to secluded sections of woods around the gorge, and with hunting prohibited in federal parks, some protested the potential loss of thousands of acres of hunting grounds.In a compromise, more than 65,000 acres of the total area were designated as a nature preserve where hunting can continue as before, and only roughly 7,000 acres directly within the canyon are officially off limits as national parkland. A provision was included to empower the park to acquire more than 3,000 acres of private land around its current boundaries as well, to expand the size of the preserve and add public hunting grounds.In a nod to tradition, the legislation also enshrines the right for visitors to continue to make use of one of the park’s most famous features — the New River Gorge Bridge — at least once a year.BASE jumping, an extreme sport in which jumpers parachute from elevated structures or cliffs, is banned in every other national park.But, since 1980, BASE jumpers have been permitted to plunge from the top of the 876-foot-high bridge and parachute down toward the river once a year, on Bridge Day, held one Saturday in October. The legislation designating the area as a national park allows that tradition to continue.As many as 100,000 people typically come to watch the jumpers plunge, according to Ms. Sullivan, providing a major boost for businesses in the region. The event has only been canceled twice, including last year because of the coronavirus.Bridge Day’s organizers advise jumpers that the only dependable way to touch down safely is to plan to land directly in the river. In normal years, hundreds do so, often multiple times that day, gliding down and softly hitting the New River’s waters.

Basketball great Michael Jordan on Monday pledged $10 million to help build two medical clinics for uninsured and underinsured communities in his hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina.
The clinics are slated to open in early 2022.
Jordan, who grew up and attended high school in Wilmington, had previously donated $7 million to set up family clinics in Charlotte to support vulnerable communities.
“I am very proud to once again partner with Novant Health to expand the Family Clinic model to bring better access to critical medical services in my hometown,” Jordan, 57, said in a statement.
“Everyone should have access to quality health care, no matter where they live, or whether or not they have insurance. Wilmington holds a special place in my heart and it’s truly gratifying to be able to give back to the community that supported me throughout my life.”
In June, Jordan had pledged $100 million over the course of the next decade to organizations dedicated to ensuring racial equality.
Jordan, a six-time NBA champion who led the Chicago Bulls’ dynasty in the 1990s, is a Basketball Hall of Famer who owns the Charlotte Hornets.

Jamie “Boz” O’Connor Bosses partypoker Big Game

Launch day for Michigan online gambling is here
February 16, 2021 0 Comments

February 15 2021
Matthew Pitt

Jamie O’Connor consoled himself after a miserable performance by his beloved Leeds United by taking down the partypoker Big Game for $41,417.
O’Connor was a special guest on the popular APAT Show and juggled answering question with battling foes in partypoker’s $530 buy-in The Big Game. Some 482 players turned out for this week’s tournament and created a $234,150 prize pool, $34,150 more than the advertised guarantee.
The top 79 players received a slice of the pie and there were plenty of British and Irish star among the in-the-money finishers.
Ben Jones, Benjamin McMenemy, Justin Dunk, Paul Vas Nunes, and Connor Morrison all cashed, the latter falling in 11th place for $3,024.
Jamie Nixon reached the final table but crashed out in ninth for $3,844, which left O’Connor as the only Union Jack sporting players in the field. O’Connor swept aside his opposition, including Rui Da Silva heads-up, to bank a $41,417 prize.

We also had a double win in the partypoker Big Games because Roberto Romanello reached the final table of the $2,600 High Roller Big Game. Romanello, however, fell in sixth-place for a $12,398 addition to his bankroll.
There’s every chance a British star will be $184,507 richer over the next couple of days because both Tom Madonald and Will Kassouf find themselves in the top 12 chip counts going into Day 2 of the MILLIONS Online Mini Main Event. Day 2 takes place on February 15 and will see the 169 returning players reduced to the final table of nine.

Brits Shine at 888poker
888poker proved to be a happy hunting ground for our players, especially in the $33 Sunday BIG Fish where Mike “HyperX.” Skeldon came out on top of a 986-strong field to lock up the title and $5,625 in prize money.
Two of our players reached the final table of the $30,000 Sunday Challenge PKO, too. Ben “xLIVEPROx” Warrington’s tournament ended in a sixth-place finish worth $839 while “babos87” collected $1,769 for their fourth-place exit; both scores include bounty payments.
Four of our players made it to the final table of the $100,000 Sunday Mega Deep but, sadly, none of them could quite get the job done.
Nick “hattie009” Cappleman crashed out in ninth for $1,480 with “M10FOG” and “casual_win” banking $2,620 and $3,520 for their seventh and sixth-place finishes. “needabridge” came agonisingly close to victory but ultimately had to make do with a second-place finish worth $11,900.

Michael Zhang
There were plenty of results worth shouting about from our players’ grind at GGPoker. Michael Zhang, a name associated with triumphing in the game’s biggest tournaments, won one event and reached the final table of another.
Zhang won the $2,625 High Rollers Blade Opener after outlasting 66 of the world’s biggest names. Victory weighed in at $39,752, Zhang’s reward for defeating Bert Stevens heads-up.
Ami Barer, David Peters, Joakim Andersson, Sami Kelopuro, and Niklas Astedt were among those elite names who navigated their way to the nine-handed final table.
Zhang went on to finish sixth in the $5,250 Sunday 500 High Rollers event for an additional $33,591.

Jonathan “Proudflop” Proudfoot and “13shaun” found themselves in the top five spots with the majority of the 322-strong field fallen by the wayside. David “Missoracle” Yan crashed out in fifth for $19,093 and it looked like the English duo could go all the way.
That was until Proudfoot busted in fourth for £25,482.
Team partypoker’s Dzmitry “Colisea” Urbanovich could only muster a third-place finish worth $34,009, which left 13shaun and “Grozzorg” of Austria as the last players standing. 13Shaun claimed the victory for the UK, which came with a $60,576 payout. Grozzorg reeled in $45,389 for their runner-up finish.

Pegula sets up all-American quarterfinal at Australian Open

Tennis – Australian Open – Melbourne Park, Melbourne, Australia, February 15, 2021 Jessica Pegula of the U.S. celebrates winning her fourth round match against Ukraine’s Elina Svitolina REUTERS/Kelly Defina
MELBOURNE – Jessica Pegula continued her dream run at the Australian Open on Monday with a 6-4 3-6 6-3 win over fifth seed Elina Svitolina to set up an all-American quarterfinal against Jennifer Brady, who beat Croatia’s Donna Vekic in straight sets.
Pegula struggled badly in the second set at Rod Laver Arena but regrouped in the decider, breaking former Wimbledon and U.S. Open semifinalist Svitolina in the fourth game before locking down her first win over a top 10 opponent.
Matching Svitolina’s power off the baseline, Pegula rushed the net to knock her opponent off her stride and sealed the win on the first match point when the Ukrainian netted a return.
Pegula, who considered giving up tennis after being sidelined for long spells due to knee and hip injuries earlier in her career, will play her good friend Brady for a place in the semis after the 25-year-old beat Vekic 6-1 7-5.
“Jen is an awesome person,” Pegula told a news conference. “She was texting me, ‘I’m so happy, I’m so proud. This is awesome’.
“We’ve all been pushing each other. Why not push each other into a quarter-final, then one of us be in the semis?”
Vekic was hampered by an injury to her right leg and took a medical timeout at the start of the second set after being blitzed by Brady in the opener.
She emerged with fresh strapping above and below her knee and though she managed to take the fight to Brady in the second set the Croatian was barely moving in the final two games.
With the score tied at 5-5 Vekic surrendered her serve to love, a double fault handing Brady the chance to serve for the match.
The American made no mistake, sealing victory when her opponent fluffed a forehand.

FOX NASCAR analyst Clint Bowyer gears up to join FOX Bet’s Super 6

February 16, 2021 0 Comments

F

ormer NASCAR driver, NASCAR Xfinity Series Champion and current FOX NASCAR race analyst Clint Bowyer joins the FOX Bet brand for the 2021 season.
FOX NASCAR race analyst Clint Bowyer joins the FOX Bet brand for the 2021 seasonBowyer, who makes his FOX NASCAR Cup Series booth debut this week from Daytona Speedweeks by joining legendary race announcer Mike Joy and NASCAR Hall of Famer Jeff Gordon, will contribute to both the FOX Bet real-money app, as well as the FOX Bet Super 6 app, a free-to-play platform available nationwide. Each week throughout the 2021 NASCAR season, Bowyer offers sports wagering content and expert insights to the FOX Bet brand and its digital platforms.
“Without a doubt, NASCAR fans are as in tune with race stats, storylines and the ebbs and flows of racing each week as any fanbase in America,” said Bowyer. “The team over at FOX Bet share in my commitment to look for ways to entertain, have some fun and ultimately enhance the experience of watching racing each week.”
FOX Bet Super 6, a free-to-play app where users make six predictions about what they think will happen in live games, races or events, introduces the “Win Clint’s Money” campaign for the 2021 NASCAR season. With football season over, Bowyer takes the proverbial wheel from FOX NFL SUNDAY’s Terry Bradshaw and the “Win Terry’s Money” Super 6 campaign where users get a chance to compete in the app for a chance to win real cash each week during the NFL season. A contest to “Win Clint’s Money” via the Super 6 app will run every NASCAR race weekend.
“Clint already enhances the fan experience on-air as part of our FOX Sports’ NASCAR team, and we’re thrilled to share his insight and entertaining popularity online with Super 6 users,” said FOX Bet CMO, Andrew Schneider. “As Super 6 continues to attract more and more NASCAR enthusiasts, he’s a natural fit for us, the fans, and Daytona is just the perfect debut.”
Beginning with the Daytona 500, airing Sunday, February 14 (2:30 PM ET) on FOX, the Super 6 app introduces “Clint’s Stage 2 Contest.” For the first time ever in-race, users answer six questions, all of which are centered around activity during Stage 2 of Cup races this season with guaranteed real cash and prizes up for grabs. Once grading is complete, FOX Bet Super 6 will announce its top performers during Stage 3 (pending eligibility verification).  
The FOX Bet brand offers a riveting sports-viewing experience, bringing fans closer to the games, races and teams they love by integrating regulated sports wagering content within its app and onto the TV screen through its partnership with FOX Sports. In addition, FOX Bet’s sports-first, betting-second approach includes exclusive observations from some of the nation’s most renowned sports commentators and analysts, including the aforementioned Bradshaw as well as fellow Pro Football Hall of Famers Howie Long and Shannon Sharpe. Additional contributors to the FOX Bet brand are: FS1’s host of THE HERD, Colin Cowherd; FOX NFL KICKOFF host Charissa Thompson; FOX BET LIVE host Rachel Bonnetta; and FOX Sports host Rob Stone.
With more than 90 million contest entries since launch in September 2019, over 22,000 winners nationwide and a user base of 4.4 million, the FOX Bet Super 6 app has given away nearly $4 million in prizes. Since the return of sports at the end of July 2020, FOX Bet Super 6 boasts the most downloads in the free-to-play category of Sports Prediction Apps (includes Fantasy). For its Super Bowl LV Super 6 contest, the app scored its most entries for a single contest ever with more than 1.4 million.
