Hit and Run: Rolling Stone Talks DFS; WSOP Concludes Card Marking Investigation; The Bike Gets a Makeover

Steve Ruddock : October 30th, 2015


Rolling Stone article on DFS. WSOP closes the marked cards investigation from this summer. 2016 APPT schedule. Bicycle Casino adding a hotel. And more.

Rolling Stone chimes in on DFS

Rolling Stone has waded into the DFS saga, as writer Evan Grossman warns that daily fantasy sports could suffer a similar fate to online poker. I wholeheartedly disagree with Grossman, and feel he has several incorrect statements in his column (a couple of quick examples being that DFS is legal in 45 states, or that the Poker Boom began in 1998 with the release of Rounders), but the article is certainly worth a read.

WSOP marked cards investigation “closed”

The World Series of Poker, in conjunction with the Nevada Gaming Control Board, has concluded its investigation into the Heads-Up tournament where it was alleged a player was marking cards. According to an official statement, the matter is now officially closed and the accused player, Valeriu Coca, will receive his 5th place prize-money.

Quick Hitters

- The schedule for the 2016 Asia Pacific Poker Tour (APPT) has been unveiled. The tour will feature 11 stops throughout 2016, including assimilating the prestigious Macau Millions and Aussie Millions tournaments.

- In yesterday’s Hit & Run we told you about Justin Bonomo throwing some shade at Daniel Negreanu. Unsurprisingly, the poker forums have chimed in on the feud, and thus far the public opinion is firmly on Negreanu’s side.

- RAWA sponsor Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) is still separating daily fantasy sports from his proposed online gambling ban.

- PokerStars is contacting New Jersey players who still have balances on the site to want them if they go unclaimed they will be transferred to the state.

- In an effort to reimagine the property, the Bicycle Casino just outside of Los Angeles is adding a hotel and spa. The “new” Bike will be unveiled on December 1st.
