Hit and Run: HuffPo Poker Writer Fail; New iGaming Strategy Emerges; First WPT Winner of Season XV

Steve Ruddock : May 6th, 2016


Consumer protections come to fore of online gaming debate. Season XV of the WPT underway. A true can’t skip read about poker has emerged from the Huffington Post.  And more.

Ladies I gentlemen, I give you the worst poker column ever written

Huffington Post published an anti-online gaming legalization column earlier today, and I must say, it was a thing of beauty. I suggest looking at it (because reading it is out of the question) before it’s pulled.

I’ve dubbed it, the worst online poker column ever written, but apparently my critique didn’t go far enough for some.

Quick Hitters

- A new strategy has emerged in the fight for legal online gambling in the United States, as advocates have slowly shifted from focusing on revenue to focusing on consumer protections. This shift was on display at recent hearings in California and Michigan.

- Seth Davies is the first winner on Season XV of the World Poker Tour – has the WPT really been around for 15 years? Davies won his first WPT title at the WPT Canadian Spring Championship held at the Playground Club in Montreal. He pocketed over $225k for the win.

- PokerStars SCOOP series is nearly upon us, and Amaya, the parent company of PokerStars, has opened up a betting market on which PokerStars Pro will place highest on the SCOOP leaderboard.

- The long anticipated merger of Full Tilt Poker and PokerStars is nearly upon us. On May 17 Full Tilt Poker players will be migrated to PokerStars and the FTP software taken offline. What’s next for what is arguably the second best platform in poker is anyone’s guess.

- We finally got the answer to the question that has been keeping us all up at night, and the answer is, no… DraftKings and FanDuel cannot advertise on NBA jerseys.
