HNR 12/11: Sen. Reid Talks Online Poker; More Pros for

Dustin Gouker : December 11th, 2012


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.

In somewhat related news, New Jersey seems like it would be happy to have PokerStars once an online bill is passed in the state.

nanonoko speaks: Part two of a 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.

Quick hitters:
–Tom “durrrr” Dwan addressed recent drama bombs about not finishing online challenges.
–Diamond Flush summarizes the “Distortion of Truth” in the Howard Lederer Files, about a series of interviews with the former FTP exec.
–Speaking of Lederer, Pokerati put some of his old tweets together; funny stuff.
–The latest Sunday Million recap show:

–Updates from the EPT Prague here; Fabrice Soulier and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier are still alive through day 2. Also, they are partying:

–A winner was crowned at the World Series of Poker Circuit Atlantic City Main Event.
–Felony poker charges from a free poker league in Florida have been dropped. Glad you brought your guns, Florida police.
–Gus Hansen is OK with slowrolling.
–Maria Ho will be a commentator for the Heartland Poker Tour.
–John Racener drops poker knowledge on you.
