Why I Do Not Agree With Harrington's Hall of Fame Selection
Yesterday, I told you guys about the new nominations for the
Poker Hall of Fame. I saved my opinions until today so to
give them their moment as that moment is definitely earned. Now that we all have had a day to process, I will give my
reasons that the fact that Dan Harrington got into the Hall
before Phil Ivey is utter BS. Reason #1.
Online Poker a Felony in Washington - Not Cool

New Cheating Allegations Arise With UB - Anyone Surprised?
There appears to be yet ANOTHER accusation of cheating
against UltimateBet, now known as UB. As you may know, there
is a legal fight going on between Excapsa Software
(UltimateBet's Original Owners pre name change to UB),
Tokwire Enterprises (acquired UB from Excapsa via a company
called Blast Off), and Blanca Games (the folks that actually
had the balls to buy the Cereus Network. )
Blast Off quit paying Excapsa after the cheating scandal
broke in 2007 and Excapsa thinks that Blast Off is having
its assets transferred out so that they become unable to pay
the remaining portion of the $120 Million due them. The following was discovered in legal documents:

that they are the victims of a ânewly discoveredâ
cheating incident dating back to 2004 which caused former
Chief Joe Norton to abandon the internet gaming business and
has given rise to new alleged claims against Excapsa.

PokerStars Wusses Out - Full Tilt to Follow?
For those of you hiding under a rock, PokerStars announced
earlier in the week that they are no longer serving
Washington State residents for real money gaming. This came
from the WA Supreme Court's decision that the law that bans
online gambling was not unconstitutional. They upheld the
law and PokerStars decided that it was time to get out. So many Washington players headed over to Full Tilt to chill
out with Ivey and the boys.
