Nevada Gaming Control Board Forces Palms to Pay Michael Divita $18,500
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.

public at large. Tonight, I watched President Obama deliver the State of the
