According to an article posted on QuadJack. com earlier today, it looks like the matter surrounding Michael Divita's exclusion from the second Epic Poker League Main Event has been resolved. For those of you that don't remember or don't follow the EPL, Divita won a seat into the second EPL Main Event but was refused entry because of being a registered sex offender in California. He was refunded his original $1,500 and escorted out of the building.

What if Poker Players Legally Changed Their Names?

Ron Artest 247x300
Los Angeles Lakers star Ron Artest has legally changed his name to Metta World Peace. To quote WWE Superstar The Miz, really? At least his intentions are good. He is trying to inspire and bring youth together as a result of his name change. Naturally, this got me thinking about poker players that might consider legally changing their names.

Divita Winning Friends With QuadJacks Appearance - Not Really

Bullshit 300x300
This evening, I learned that Michael Divita was going to be a guest on QuadJacks Radio. In all honesty, I haven't listened to QuadJacks for a while.   The show went downhill and after an incident a while back where they used some information I provided them to ambush a friend, I quit listening. However, Marco can sometimes perform some brilliant interviews and I was mildly curious to hear what Divita had to say.
