What does it feel like to win $1 million playing poker?
Most of us will never know. Many of us will be lucky to hit
a five-figure score. A few others reading this may some day hit a six-figure
score but a seven figure?

Flashback Friday - Patrik Antonius Wins Largest Pot in Online Poker History
This week's edition of Flashback Friday takes us back to
November 7, 2009, a day that will never happen again thanks
to recent changes at Full Tilt Poker. Patrik Antonius and Viktor "Isildur1" Blom were entangled in
a massive heads-up match playing $500-$1,000 PL Omaha. A mini-raising war pre-flop resulted in Antonius
five-betting to $81,000 before Isildur1 finally decided to
see a flop. On a flop of 5c-4s-2h, Antonius bet out $91,000, followed by
a pot-size raise by Isildur1 to $435,000,
Antonius potted to $779,000, effectively putting Isildur1
all-in for his last $162,473.

Nolan Dalla's Warning About an Online Poker Ban Should Not Be Ignored
Rewind to late 2013 when Sheldon Adelson announced that he

man and many felt that he had little to no chance of
winning. Then RAWA appeared and again people scoffed at Adelson. RAWA didn't go away and by the time the Lame Duck rolled
around, and all of a sudden, he was a credible threat.
PokerStars and Caesars Become the New Super Powers of Poker
If you can't beat them, join into a partnership to take on
your biggest enemy. At least that is what has happened between Caesars and
PokerStars. In case you missed it, Caesars Entertainment has reversed
their opinion regarding PokerStars operating in the United
States. Caesars now supports an Amaya-run PokerStars and thinks that
the door should be open to them to operate.

2015 to Be Another Year of Indecision for Online Poker
Some analysts tried to hype last year as one of tremendous
growth for the online poker industry. That growth never came
and instead we lost one of the games first legal sites. While some are trying to be optimistic about online poker's
chances in 2015, I personally think this will be another
year of general indecision and slow movement. Below are my
thoughts on some of the major online poker bills being
