iPoker Network introduces All-in Cash Out feature
Poker bad beats is no doubt the most tilt-inducing aspect of the game especially for those relatively new to the field or players running in the red. IPoker Network is changing that with its newest All-in Cash Out feature made recently available in all its poker rooms. The interesting insurance option is primarily for its Hold’em cash game tables in the interest of providing everyone with the opportunity to avoid bad beats altogether.
The All-in Cash Out feature allows players to secure their winnings based on the equity of their hand regardless of the runout. In the event a player chooses to buy insurance, he immediately receives his percentage of the pot with the remaining going to the room should he win the hand. Apart from the 1% added commission in utilizing the feature, All-in insurances are actually more beneficial to the room with more rake being collected long-term speaking. However short-term wise, the feature is still a good way for recreational players to maintain a good overall gaming experience.

Mark Rubbathan claims over $600K after winning Triton package
Americas Cardroom Stormer Mark Rubbathan had a life-changing start to 2023 after his appearance in the latest Triton series in Vietnam awarded him a total of $686,300 in cashes in addition to claiming Triton gold. Rubbathan’s journey to glory began in February when he won one of four High Stakes Adventure packages valued at over $100,000 on the Winning Poker Network. The package included $100,000 in tournament buy-ins alone in addition to 12 nights of accommodation at the KHOS Hoiana luxury hotel, round-trip business class airfare ticket, and VIP airport transfers.
In the series, Rubbathan tested the waters across three events and cashed in two: $20,000 Mystery Bounty, 1st – $396,000 + $240,000 (Bounty), and $15,000 No Limit Hold’em, 10th – $50,300. His performance at the Mystery Bounty event bested some of the toughest contenders in the field including Wiktor “Limitless” Malinowski and battled alongside a number of the fiercest pros out there. The champion score amounting to $636,000 in winnings serves as Rubbathan’s career-best by far. Prior to his latest achievement, the British streamer’s best live cash was recorded at $14k at a Grosvenor UK Poker Tour event back in 2019.
“I’m still processing what happened, the only thing I can say is that everything, just the fact of being in Triton, and how well everything went here, it’s hard not to want to be here again. Thank you very much to everyone who has supported me, it represents a lot.”, commented Rubbathan following his triumph.
