Hit and Run: Pro-DFS Protest in NY; 2015 WSOP Autopsy; GPI and USA TODAY Partnership

Steve Ruddock : November 12th, 2015


2015 World Series of Poker Main Event autopsy. New York AG’s DFS ruling questions and (perhaps) answers. Congress already decided state’s can legalize online poker.

Aftermath of the WSOP Main Event

Now that the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event has come to a close it’s time for the poker media to perform its yearly autopsy of poker’s preeminent event.

Here’s a collection of the columns I’ve come across today:

Televised Poker is the Worst, but Whose Fault is That?

Fallout from NY AG DFS ruling

The announcement Tuesday evening by the New York Attorney General that DFS is gambling has led to an organized protest by several DFS operators outside of AG Eric Schneiderman’s office on Friday morning.

Don’t let the AG take away your right to play fantasy sports! Make your voice heard and join us at the #FantasyForAll rally!

At 8:00 AM ET FRIDAY, bring yourself and your friends, family and colleagues downtown to AG Schneiderman’s NYC office. Meet outside the entrance at 120 Broadway between Pine and Cedar.

DFS operators are also asking their players and supporters to contact the Attorney General’s office (in a respectful way) and let their voices be heard.
