Poker Stars Snubbed by NJ Regulators: Announcements Scheduled for Today

by Wendeen H. Eolis

Update Bulletin: PokerStars Faces Red Lights in NJ 

After months of investigation by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, the regulators have made their determinations and are  expected to step up to the plate today with announcements of the companies licensed for Internet gambling in NJ, on the opening date of November 26.  

 The lead up to the announcement has been accompanied by plenty of turmoil among warring parties.  Throughout this period, however, PokerStars and its boosters including various state officials, PS private lobbyists, and high placed friends, have exuded confidence without interruption, only to hear of their failure to secure a license at this time.

 Regulators are said to have railed against pressure to turn a blind eye on the outstanding criminal case against PokerStars founder Isai Scheinberg, arising from his indictment dating back to 2011. Word has also leaked out through sources close to officials in Atlantic City and in the Statehouse of growing concern as to the role of PokerStars founder in the Company's current activities.

While Isai Scheinberg is described by the Company as a "Fellow" and not part of management various opponents to PS licensing are continuing to argue that Scheinberg still operates within the Company as if he is in charge, with respect to matters that interest him. If true, this would violate the Company's settlement agreement with the US Department of Justice in connection with its legal troubles arising from the indictment and companion civil case U.S. v Scheinberg et al.

Jay Farber and Ryan Riess Going Heads-Up for 2013 WSOP Main Event Title

The penultimate day of the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event is in the books and after seven and a half hours of play we're down to heads up.  The only non-pro at the table, Vegas club promoter Jay Farber, has the chip lead on his side while 23-ywar-old pro Ryan Riess has confidence, some say arrogance, on his. Farber was responsible for three eliminations and Riess took the other four as the two completely dominated the final table in slightly different styles. Farber mixed it up more and was extremely aggressive, while Riess was more surgical in picking his spots before a loud crowd at the Penn & Teller Theatre at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Resort.
