Hit and Run: France to Share iPoker Liquidity; Poker Twitter Off the Rails; MGM Maryland Casino Opening Dec 8
France to share online poker liquidity. Poker Twitter feud crosses the line. Steve Wynn says he lost “a lot” of money playing poker with Lyle Berman. And more.
International online poker agreements imminent?
It appears the days of segregated European poker markets are numbered.
Recent industry reports indicate France is about to enter into online poker agreements with other European jurisdictions. This is a move that could reshape the online poker landscape across the continent, and potentially pave the way for international liquidity sharing agreements with US states.
If this does in fact come to fruition, it will be one of the biggest developments in online poker in recent years.
