The Launch Of Trifecta Entertainment

Trifecta Network has been around since early 2016 since then we have grown into one of the largest Boston sports sites in the market. But as our name suggests, there are three segments.

For now, we have primarily focused on sports related to the Boston market. A segment that will continue to be our main focus. But it is now time to launch one new segment to make it a duo before a trio.

This new segment will be called Trifecta Entertainment.

Trifecta Entertainment will focus on entertainment news such as movies and television, music, and other topics related to the entertainment industry. We dabbled in this in the past when our site was hosted by Weebly. But now we believe is the perfect time to jump back in head-on.

For now, entertainment news will not be found on our homepage, instead, it will be located on a sub-page. The reason for this is we want to fine tune and tweak our strategy before a full roll-out.

Currently, the articles in our entertainment segment will be written by our current staffers. But we are looking for new writers to help us grow this segment.

If you are interested or know anyone who would want to write for us please fill out the form below.

Tanner founded Trifecta Network in Spring of 2016 and has been the Chief of Content for the Network since that time. Currently Tanner covers all the sports teams in Boston and has contacts in many of the teams in the city.

WSOP 2017 Main Event Champion Remains Humble

WSOP 2017 Main Event Champion Remains Humble, Scott Blumstein Wins Main Event

Scott Blumstein went to the final table Main Event as the chip leader, and he remained in the lead to took home the coveted gold bracelet and $8.15 million dollars cash. It was early Sunday morning when Blumstein was heads-up against fellow countryman, Dan Ott.

The final hand came down to this: Blumstein went into the final hand behind with an Ace-2 off-suit against Daniel Ott who held an A-8 suited. Blumstein went all in and Ott Called. With all the chips in the middle, Blumstein caught the deuce of hearts on the river, one of only 3 outs that could win it all for him and as dramatic as any poker game can be, Blumstein walked away from the World Series of Poker Champion for 2017.  Ott had a ninety-three percent chance of avoiding disaster and Blumstein defied the odds and was crowned the winner.

Blumstein has remained humble throughout the tournament and even after winning, his demeanor was the same. At a post event conference, Scott thanked his parents for their support and his friends who helped him improve his game and prepare him for the Main Event. This was Blumstein’s first event and may be awhile before we see him again.  When asked about playing in future high roller events,

Scott just shrugged and said, ” I don’t have an ego in this game, I was just a New Jersey Online Grinder, and nothing has really changed”

Well, some things have changed for Scott. Winning the Main Event puts his name down in the History books of poker with some of the greatest who ever played the game. Blumstein remained humble still, however, stating that money was not a motivator for him.

” I didn’t win it for the eight million dollars”, he said, ” But it is nice to have some freedom now. To get to the point I can do what I want. And I think I have that opportunity now. Whether it;s poker, whether it is business, whether it’s going back to school, whatever it is, I have that freedom now”

And with his freedom, his WSOP gold bracelet, and more money than I probably will ever see, the 2017 World Series of Poker Champion walks away as one of the most humble poker players in the business.

Here is how the “July 9” stacked up.

Finish Player Name Payout POY Points

Wynn Resorts; Casino Coming to Boston. A Win-Wynn Situation and I Am All In!

Wynn Resorts; Casino Coming to Boston. A Win-Wynn Situation and I Am All In!

Gaming has always been a big part of my family. From early on, I can remember playing card games, board games, chess, and dominoes. We also played knock poker or 31. Gambling for real money wasn’t allowed, however, us kids would use toothpicks to gamble with or pennies.

I grew up and, of course, along came Casinos on Indian Land. I wasn’t a fan of a traditional gaming such as slots, roulette, etc; but cards, oh yeah, I can play some cards! Then I learned how to play Texas hold’em.  Ever since I have been a fan of the game and other casino games as well. So, I was very excited to learn about a New and Exciting Vegas casino coming to the Greater Boston Area.

Scheduled to open in the summer of 2019, welcome to Wynn Boston Harbor;  America’s first five-star urban gaming resort which will be accessible by land and sea. Wynn casino will offer numerous amenities and entertainment, including the Harbor walk, shoreline park, water shuttle.

Beating out rival proposals from Mohegan Sun and Suffolk Downs, Wynn Resorts won the Greater Boston casin0 license in 2014.  Since that time, Wynn Resorts has prevailed in lawsuits filed against it by the City of Boston and the city of Somerville. I have said it before and I say again; Boston, the city where American Revolutions begin and where history is still being made!

Unlike most casinos who only open a few segments at a time, Wynn Casino is pulling all the stops and plans to open in one grand event. The 150,000 square foot casino floor is designed to comfortably house 3,242 slot machines and 168 table games. At a build-out cost of about $1.6 billion it is the largest private development ever in the state and will include 77,250 square feet of retail space, over 64,000 square feet of dining and entertainment venues, 32,942 square feet of convention, meeting, and private function space, and a nightclub with more than 30,000 square feet of floor space.

Wynn Resorts will be located in Everett, Massachusetts at 1 Horizon way. With all the excitement and entertainment a casino fan could ask for and the fact it will create over 4,000 more jobs, I personally am looking forward to Wynn’s grand opening. I will be there, sitting at the poker table. See you there. I am all in!
