HNR 4/2: Isildur1 Owning; U.S. Online Poker Regulation Future

Dustin Gouker : April 2nd, 2012


Isildur1 is owning the crap out of Isaac Haxton, and the future of U.S. online poker regulation. It’s all in Monday’s edition of the PTP Hit and Run.

More pwning by Isildur1: In an ongoing heads-up match at PokerStars for a million bucks, Viktor “Isildur1″ Blom was leading Isaac “philivey2694″ Haxton by about $280K after day two. You can get a report on that here. They are actually playing right now, and Isildur1 is close to finishing the match, barring a double up by Haxton. You can also follow the action at here, or log into the PokerStars client.

U.S. regulation?: The Poker Players’ Alliance Rich Muny is doing a series of interviews with PokerFuse. This time out, he assesses the chances of federal regulation of online poker, and if the retirement of Sen. Jon Kyl is a good thing for online poker proponents. Read the interview here.

Cool story bro about EPT champ: Really, you should read this. Jannick Wrang won the European Poker Tour Campione. But the cool story is what happened leading up to it.

Quick hitters:
A roundup of all the Sunday major online tournament action, including four final tables for Kevin “ImaLuckSac” MacPhee.
–Part three of an interview with pro Melanie Weisner:

–A look at what went down in the latest event in the Estrellas Poker Tour.
