Looking Back on My 2011 Online Poker Predictions

Online Poker Ban
Back in August of 2011, I wrote an article entitled "Five Things You Will See Before Online Poker is Legalized in the US. " This article was part prediction and part a call for people to stop the insane talk that "legal online poker was around the corner. " I ran across this article today and decided to revisit my predictions more than 2 and 1/2 years after making them. #5.

Three Things We Will Learn From the Anti-Gambling Bill

Capitol Hill 2 Small
The bill that would effectively ban online poker nationwide is finally in the halls of Congress. The Restore America's Wire Act looks to essentially make it illegal for online poker and online casinos to operate in the US. It leaves carve outs for lotteries, horse racing and already existing exclusions. I'm not here to debate whether or not the bill will pass.

Flipout Tournaments - Luckbox Poker Variant is Bad Timing

Full Tilt
Full Tilt Poker is released a new tournament variant on Wednesday called a Flipout tournament. The way these tournament works is that the entire field goes all-in on the very first hand and the winner are then in the money. For example, in an 81 players SNG, the final table would be reached after the first hand. It is part Kamikaze and part single-table SNG all in one.

I was listening to Bluff Magazine's "The Rundown" yesterday and they mentioned an article on PokerListings. com written by Lee Davy that asked whether Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson should be banned from the World Series of Poker. *The WSOP nor Caesars Have Been Harmed* The first, and most relevant point against the banning of Ferguson and Lederer is the fact that both are in good standing with both Caesars and the World Series of Poker. As players, neither have cheated the company nor behaved inappropriately during their play at the WSOP, or at least not at any level that would warrant a ban.
