Poker News: Epic Poker League Files Bankruptcy and more

by Haley Hintze

 EPL PARENT ANNOUNCES BANKRUPTCY PLANS
 Epic Poker League’s parent company, Federated Sports & Gaming’s plans for a lengthy run suffered a severe setback when executive director Jeffrey Pollack announced they would be seeking Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after lavish expenditures left the new operation awash in red ink. With only three events under its belt and its fourth tourney and season-ending freeroll already delayed, prospects for EPL’s survival appear dim, though not impossible. One known EPL investor, Las Vegas-based Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc., allegedly entered buyout talks, while the semi-autonomous Heartland Poker Tour, a new part of the FS&G family, was expected to continue with no change in plans.

Poker News: Poker Bill’s 2012 Prospects Wane

By Haley Hintze

 ONLINE POKER MEASURE DROPPED FROM TAX-BILL TALKS

 An effort by Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) to attach an online-poker bill to a “must pass” payroll-tax bill under discussion in late February failed, leaving any such legislation less likely for 2012. The tax bill, briefly eyed by Reid, was designed to extend unemployment benefits and tax cuts. Despite its controversial nature, the bill was eyed by some as an omnibus measure to which some special-interest measures could be attached. The short-circuited move mirrored Congress’s 2006 passage of the UIGEA, which sailed through without opposition after being added to a needed port-security measure.

Norwegian tax authorities filed a lien with American authorities for accounts frozen on Black Friday, hoping to recover $30 million.

Poker News: Duhamel’s Former Girlfriend Jailed in WSOP Bracelet Robbery Arrest and more

by Haley Hintze

DUHAMEL HOME INVASION

 The saga of the late-night home invasion robbery of WSOP Main Event champ Jonathan Duhamel turned ever stranger with the arrest of former Duhamel girlfriend Bianca Rojas-Latraverse and three Montreal-area men in connection with the case. According to evidence presented at the arraignment, Rojas-Latraverse, 20, orchestrated the break-in in which Duhamel was beaten and briefly hospitalized, which was physically carried out by two of the three others since arrested. Taken in the robbery were over $100,000 worth of euros and Canadian currency, a special PokerStars Rolex watch commemorating Duhamel’s WSOP win—which has since been recovered—and the platinum-and-diamonds WSOP winner’s bracelet, which remains missing. This is proof positive that, “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”

DUHAMEL BEATEN IN HOME INVASION

2010 WSOP champion Jonathan Duhamel suffered minor injuries after being assaulted in a home invasion robbery. Duhamel, a Canadian who lives in the Montreal borough of Boucherville, answered a late-night doorbell only to be pushed back inside his home by his attackers. Among the items taken were his prized championship bracelet from his 2010 World Series poker victory and a Rolex Submariner watch given to him by his sponsor PokerStars to mark his feat. Both items were engraved with his name and the date of his triumph. Duhamel, who was hospitalized briefly for treatment of his injuries before being released, said: “I won’t deny that these two items have a value much larger than money to me, and I hope with all my heart that we will be able to recover them in the near future.” Duhamel won $8.9 million for his 2010 title and isn’t the only WSOP winner to face a later assault, as 2004 winner Greg Raymer once fended off a pair of armed robbers who attacked him outside a hotel room at the Bellagio.
