Mason Malmuth answers the critics

poker player and podcaster Joe Ingram managed pulled off one of the biggest “gets” in the poker industry when he brought 2+2 boss (or end-boss as Ingram started calling him) Mason Malmuth on his podcast. The two talked for well over an hour on a variety of topics, including 2+2’s longstanding issues with Daniel Negreanu, Malmuth’s disdain for “incorrect” poker information in books, as well as a trip into poker’s past.

Quick Hitters

- Julien Sitbon triumphed in the 2015 Unibet Open Cannes, picking up an €80,000 score.

- The $51k WCOOP Super High Roller is down to eight players, with late arrival Mike “Timex” McDonald leading the way. Only six of these players will cash, so it should be a very interesting Day 2.

- Daniel “Jungleman” Cates chimed in on the Brian Hastings multi-accounting scandal, but only to throw Isildur1 under the bus for some unnamed crimes. Cates’ appearance begins here (with an ironic post about irony), and continues for a couple pages.

- Shaun Deeb picked up his third PokerStars WCOOP title this weekend. The online poker legend took down Event #44, a $215 4-Max NLHE tournament. Deeb pocketed $68k.

- Here’s what New York will have to do if they plan on passing an online gaming bill in the coming years according to Online Poker Report’s Dustin Gouker.  1) Scrap poker-only. 2) Appeal to the NYGA. 3) Rally support in the legislature.

- The Mashpee Wampanoag tribe has received approval from the Bureau of Indian Affairs to hold a parcel of land in trust for the federally recognized tribe. The approval paves the way for the tribe to begin construction on a casino in Taunton, Massachusetts.

- Our latest edition of Forum Files is about opinions, and you know the old saying… Opinions are like [insert word here]; everyone has one.
