In case you missed it, West Virginia is in the early stages of considering whether to offer online gambling through the state lottery. The prospect of online poker in West Virginia is huge for the simple fact that it serves as a jumping off point for several states, including my home state of Virginia. Just a short drive of three hours and I could play online poker. What's the big deal you ask? In about two years, there is a solid chance that New Jersey, Nevada, California, Delaware and maybe West Virginia could all be spreading online poker.

PokerStars has decided to introduce a new concept at the 2015 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure. Two of their tournaments will pay approximately 50 percent of the field in what they are calling "Double Bubble" tournaments. For example, an event that pays 40 spots will now pay 80 spots. The additional 40 spots will get their buy-in back and continue to play for the money in the top 40 spots.

Amaya purchased PokerStars this week for over $4 billion. I didn't see that one coming. Amaya has made themselves the most powerful online gambling company in the world with the move. Some would make you think that the deal will result in nationwide online poker legalization in short order.

In case you missed it, former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown has joined up with Sheldon Adelson's Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling. Big deal you say? If you haven't already done so, check out his open letter announcing his new National Co-Chair position. He spoke on how he used to support online gambling but changed his mind after seeing the marketing tactics geared towards kids. Sensationalized? I was thinking the same.
