Partygaming and bwin Merge - Is a New Online Top Dog on the Horizon?

I have been watching this for a while due to the fact that I do some work for some sites run by bwin, so this merger has been of keen interest to me.   However, anyone that plays online poker should be keeping an eye on bwin and Partygaming over the next few months.

One hand in particular was a prime example of why many people do not like lower limit Holdem.

Michael Mizrachi Wins1
So for the first time in probably three years, I watched a first run episode of the 2010 World Series of Poker on ESPN.  Tonight was the Poker Player's Championship episodes where Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi took down his first every WSOP bracelet. I won't lie.   The main reason I watched was to see if they got some shots of me around the Rio.
