When the World Series of Poker expanded to Europe, some of us wondered if that would be the first step in the WSOP offering bracelet events worldwide. That day has finally arrived as the WSOP announced on Monday that the WSOP Asia-Pacific will commence in April 2013. The event will be held at the Crown Casino in Melbourne Australia and will feature five bracelet events its first year. The deal that was announced was a multi-year one, so this is not just a one-time event.

Moneymaker Seidel 206x300
Erik Seidel has had an epic 2011. Since the beginning of the year, he has taken down two major high-roller events and the NBC National Heads-Up Championship to take over the all-time money list lead. However, there are now allegations arising that are beginning to cast doubt as to whether these wins were indeed legitimate. It all started with a post on the TwoPlusTwo forums a couple of weeks ago when poster "CrownWatchdog186" posted that the fix was in for both the $100,000 Challenge match and the $250,000 buy-in Super High Roller event.
