Sen. Reid comments on online poker, nanonoko interviews, and Phil Ivey signs more pros. It’s all in Tuesday’s edition of the Hit and Run.
U.S. online poker bill: There has been little news of late about the status of online poker regulation in the United States. Which is why a short sound bite from Sen. Harry Reid today is significant. Reading between the lines of Reid’s comments, we’re not sure whether we should be more or less optimistic about the bill’s chances.
nanonoko speaks: Part two of a pokernews.com interview with Randy “nanonoko” Lew is out; watch it here:
More Ivey pros: Phil Ivey’s online poker site continues to add pros at a fast rate, even though the site, which apparently will have some training and a social media game, is still more than a month from going operational. Seven more pros were added; details here. Matt Giannetti is perhaps the most famous of the lot.
