Mason Malmuth’s new book and thoughts on current situation in poker. DFS gets a reprieve in New York. The Minnesota Poker Hall of Famed has two new members.

Mason Malmuth’s new book and thoughts on poker

It’s been a while since he penned his own work, but Mason Malmuth’s latest poker book has now been released. The book is titled, Real Poker Psychology, and I’m partway through it already – my review will be coming sometime this week.

Malmuth also went on Joey Ingram’s Poker Life Podcast for the second time in a few months to talk about his book, one of his favorite foils in Daniel Negreanu, and the poker economy. Mason’s thoughts on poker are really solid and well thought out and I highly suggest you listen to the interview.

Quick Hitters

– Appellate court Judge Pain Feinman has granted DraftKings and FanDuel a temporary reprieve from the temporary injunction granted by Supreme Court Judge Manuel Mendez on Friday. Hold on to your hats, New York is about to get even wilder and woollier when it comes to DFS.

– Blake Bohn and Minneapolis Jim Meehan were inducted into the Minnesota Poker Hall of Fame. The MPHoF is at the Canterbury Casino. The MPHoF now has four members, Bohn, Meehan, Lyle Berman, and Mike Schneider.

–¬† WSOP Circuit Series grinder Alex Masek picked up his ninth WSOPC gold ring at the WSOPC Bicycle Casino series – Masek’s nine WSOPC wins is a tour record.

– Check out Alex Weldon’s latest series which compares the current fight between PokerStars¬† and high stakes players to a relationship deteriorating, complete with the proverbial Kid Poker caught in the middle.

– With all of the PokerStars talk there is a newfound interest in the poker economy and poker ecosystem. Here’s a two-part primer on how it works – Part 1 and Part 2.
