Bodog now has a feature that allows you to request the hole cards of players at your table 24 hours after a hand is completed. The company decided to do this to address the concerns of players regarding collusion. However, I like the statement that they made regarding the new feature. Bodog said that, "Once all the noise of whining poker 'pros' who could no longer use software allowing access to data on how you play your game against Bodog players died down the only credible complaint was the threat of collusion," Very nice.

Calvin Ayre 430x293
By now, most of you know that Bodog. com and its founder Calvin Ayre was indicted as well as three other defendants. This indictment didn't really shock or surprise me, or really anyone that has followed online poker's legal battle since last year. The real surprise comes in the fact that it took them 10 months to file this indictment.

I just read an article about a survey that US Gaming Survey did in conjunction with the Poker Players Alliance.   The survey had around 8,000 respondents and included poker players primarily in the 30 to 60 year range. The survey produced the following results.  I’ll paraphrase: Most poker players don’t play the lottery Many poker players quit playing online after Black Friday 70% of poker players don’t care where they play if it is legal Poker is a game of skill Most people spend less than $100 a week on poker.

PokerRoom Site 289x300
Last month, I reported on how there was "something going on at PokerRoom. com. " Well, after a month of "speculation", PokerRoom is now offering live money games once again. Yes, as in the PokerRoom that ran from 1999 to 2009 before shutting down due to lack of revenue.
