HNR 3/29: Black Friday Case Update; Isildur1 vs. Haxton for $1M

Dustin Gouker : March 29th, 2012


A Black Friday plea deal may not stick, a European Poker Tour update, and Isildur1 and Isaac Haxton will play for a million bucks. It’s all in Thursday’s edition of the PTP Hit and Run.

Black Friday case, revisited: John Campos, one of the men indicted in the wake of online poker’s Black Friday, might not be getting a deal after all. The judge in the case wants an explanation of a plea deal that resulted in just a misdemeanor for Campos, who was allegedly involved in processing payments for online poker sites. Get all the details here.

Isildur1 vs. Haxton, take three: Viktor “Isildur1″ Blom and Isaac “philivey2694″ Haxton will play at PokerStars for a million bucks. Both players will pony up half a million, with play continuing until one player has all the virtual chips. More on the match here.

EPT update: The European Poker Tour’s Campione stop in Italy is in day 3, with some pros still hanging in there. Olivier Busquet is currently in second place; other pros in the running include David Vamplew, Fabrice Soulier and Per Linde. Get live updates here.
