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.

However, Marco can sometimes perform some brilliant interviews and I was mildly curious to hear what Divita had to say.
