Some of you that watched the live coverage of the 2011 WSOP Main Event may remember Daniel Negreanu throwing a mild tantrum when he wasn't allowed to talk during a hand at the featured table. When this went down, I voiced my opinion that I would not be surprised to see that rule changed before the 2012 WSOP. I wish I had put some money on that.

When the World Series of Poker expanded to Europe, some of us wondered if that would be the first step in the WSOP offering bracelet events worldwide. That day has finally arrived as the WSOP announced on Monday that the WSOP Asia-Pacific will commence in April 2013. The event will be held at the Crown Casino in Melbourne Australia and will feature five bracelet events its first year. The deal that was announced was a multi-year one, so this is not just a one-time event.

Poker is Not the Issue Obama's Looking For

1 25 January 2012 , By: compncards
If I've said it once, I've said it probably about 14 or 15 times in print. Poker is not that big of an issue to the public at large. Tonight, I watched President Obama deliver the State of the Union address.  He addressed many pressing topics that affect America as a whole.
