Top Threads in Online Poker Forums (Feb. 25-March 3)

Dustin Gouker : March 3rd, 2013


Negreanu and friends vs. Full Tilt Poker, and New Jersey regulates online poker. It’s all in the week’s most interesting threads in the world of poker forums.

Negreanu’s challenge (2+2)

Thread: Negreanu challenges Hansen, Durr and Blom to HU challenge
The online poker community always loves a good challenge between pros. Some Twitter chatter between PokerStars’ Daniel Negreanu and Full Tilt Poker’s Gus Hansen turned into a six-man high-stakes challenge that will also involve Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Viktor “Isildur1″ Blom, Isaac Haxton and Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier.

2+2 vs. PPA (2+2)

Thread: Did PPA help foster situation that led to Black Friday?
Thread starts with an article that attempts to portray a link between poker payment processor SunFirst and the Poker Players Alliance quickly but degenerates into the poker world against the PPA. Several PPA execs weigh in about the venom directed toward the PPA, while the poker community gets more and more riled up. The PPA isn’t perfect, but having the PPA is better than having no advocacy effort at all. And we don’t really see an alternative out there right now. We’d also guess that the PPA is better served not responding in a 2+2 thread like this one, but that’s just our opinion.

Jersey poker (2+2)

Thread: NJ online poker legislation (passed)
The biggest news in online poker this past week is the signing of a bill regulating online poker and gaming in New Jersey. Keep up with the news and what’s next in regulation in N.J. here.
