Poker News Brief: Pro-Online Gambling Lobbying Group C4COP Debuts

by Haley Hintze

A new lobbying group favoring the regulated oversight of online poker and gambling has debuted.  The new Coalition for Consumer and Online Protection (C4COP) is funded by MGM International with support from the American Gaming Association.  C4COP was created to counteract the anti-online push of CSIG, with C4COP immediately announcing a $250,000 media buy, primarily around Washington, D.C., to promote a pro-online political agenda.  Among the political figures already signed to front the group are former GOP Congressmen Mike Oxley and Mary Bono and former Obama administrative staffer Jim Messina.

Poker News Brief: Pennsylvania State Senators Seeks to Criminalize Online Poker Playing

by Haley Hintze

Pennsylvania Pols Announce Support for Online-Gambling Ban – Three Pennsylvania state legislators have announced support for a yet-to-be-introduced piece of legislation that would criminalize the playing of online poker and other forms of online gambling. The statements by State Sen. Mario Scavello and two others propose summary fines and misdemeanor penalties for playing poker and other forms of gambling online, and if enacted would make Pennsylvania only the second US state where playing online poker is regarded as criminal. (The state of Washington passed a felony law in 2006.) The LV Sands-funded Coalition to Stop Internet Gambling (CSIG) immediately hailed Scavello’s proposal; Scavello’s PA district, coincidentally, is adjacent to the one where the Sands-owned Sands Bethlehem casino is located.

Palm Beach Kennel Club’s Art Laughlin Honored With AGTOA Lifetime Achievement Award

By Craig Dolch

West Palm Beach, Fl. - When Art Laughlin received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Greyhound Track Operators of America (AGTOA) last Monday in Las Vegas, he said he was “surprised and shocked.”

He shouldn’t have been.

Laughlin, who spent 34 years as general manager at Palm Beach Kennel Club, helped build PBKC into one of America’s top greyhound tracks. Under his guidance, Palm Beach went from a four-month racing circuit to a year-round operation that produces the most handle – on the greyhounds as well as simulcasting – as any dog track in the U.S.

45th Annual World Series of Poker Schedule Announced with 65 Events on Tap

LAS VEGAS (Feb. 11, 2014) – The 45th annual World Series of Poker® (WSOP®) – a set of poker tournaments open to anyone 21 years of age or older – officially puts cards in the air the day after Memorial Day, Tuesday, May 27, 2014, with an expected $200 million up for grabs, and play ramping up immediately with several new and exciting events early in the schedule.

 

But it may be what comes at the end of this year’s series that will steal the headlines, as poker’s world championship – aka the WSOP Main Event – will see the winner walk away with $10,000,000 and of course the diamond-encrusted bracelet.  As was the case with the Millionaire Maker last year, the payout structure will adjust accordingly to accommodate the new Main Event wrinkle.

Poker News Brief: Las Vegas Caesars Palace to Relocate Poker Room

by Haley Hintze

Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, home to one of the largest poker rooms in Las Vegas, will relocate its games elsewhere in the casino to dedicate more floor space for the adjacent, popular PURE nightclub. The imminent move likely means a need for a new home in 2015 for the annual National Heads-Up Poker Championship, which has been filmed in late February or early March and has been televised by NBC in recent years. Several other Caesars tournament series and regular cash-game action will also be transplanted. Caesars has not announced a new location within the sprawling Caesars Palace complex for a relocated poker room, nor whether the casino will downsize from the 62 poker tables currently offered.

Mike Caro: Today’s word is... TEST

Are you ready for a poker test? Fine. This one won’t always be what you expect. It probes your knowledge of my Mike Caro methodology for winning at poker. That means, the correct answer to some questions may seem like opinions to you.

They aren’t opinions, though. When my correct answers differ from what you’ve heard elsewhere, then what you’ve heard is wrong. If that makes me an egomaniac in your mind, good.

I’ve done the research for decades, so you can decline to take this test and dispute the answers at your own risk. If you do, I’ll still love you, but I’ll be sad. Let’s get started with today’s two questions.

Test begins

Question 1: Which statement below about the role of psychology in poker is most true?

(A) Psychology is overrated, because correct poker strategy is based on proven mathematical formulae.
(B) Once you have a solid foundation in normal poker strategy, most of your profit comes from psychology.
(C) Most serious poker players ignore opponents’ efforts to use psychology against them.
(D) It’s easier to determine how opponents play by watching for patterns than by trying to determine current moods.

James Miller Wins Main Event at Beau Rivage

Often when a poker player flops quads they don’t get paid for their monster hand. That was not the case for James Miller today at the 2014 Million Dollar Heater Championship Event at Beau Rivage as he won a huge pot with flopped quads and rode that momentum to victory. This isn’t Miller’s first taste of the limelight as he won nearly six figures for a 7th place finish in the 2013 World Series of Poker Seniors Event. He also had a victory in the 2013 Million Dollar Heater to his credit. Now he can add the ultimate Million Dollar Heater title to his poker resume. Congratulations on your win, James!

By: Wendeen H. Eolis

Since January 18th, the 27 remaining players in the Borgata Winter Open's first event have been waiting for their money while the authorities investigate the particulars of 160 counterfeit chips (5K tournament chips), introduced into the tournament. While the fake chips amounted to a bit less than 1% of the total chips in play, the intrusion into the integrity of the competition put the Borgata, the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, and law enforcement personnel in overdrive--in a determined search for the culprit(s) and a a collaborative effort to bring the matter to a full resolution.
