Comprehensive list of failed online poker sites. Brian Rast challenges Sheldon Adelson to poker match. Gala Coral and Ladbrokes merger approved with stipulation. And more.
Brian Rast has not taken Sheldon Adelson’s recent comments about poker with a grain of salt. Instead, Rast has decided to challenge Adelson to a heads-up match for $2 million.
Hey Sheldon Adelson, waz up? Poker is a skill game. Don't believe me? You're a billionaire, I'm not close. Let's play HU 4 2 million each.

There’s only one problem, Rast is challenging Adelson to defend a position the casino magnate never adopted, as I explain in this column. Adelson may downplay the amount of skill involved in poker (and he’s made some derogatory remarks about poker players over the years) but he never actually says poker doesn’t have skill to it.
