Daniel Negreanu’s latest rant, an update from from the European Poker Tour, and some good news for U.S. online poker regulation. It’s all in Wednesday’s edition of the PTP Hit and Run.

David Vamplew is the current chip leader; other notables still alive include Per Linde, Fabrice Soulier, Liv Boeree, Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Chris Moorman and Patrik Antonius.

Good news for online regulation in the U.S.?: The Poker Players Alliance reported on a step forward for regulation, as the Fraternal Order of Police sent a letter to some of the top lawmakers, asking them for a regulatory framework for online gaming in the U.S. Poker is not mentioned, and it doesn’t really call for legalization. It does call for something different than what we’ve got now, however. You can read the letter here.
