Poker News Brief: New Jersey Online Poker Bill Seeks to Add International Players

by Haley Hintze

New Jersey’s Lesniak Seeks International Players – New Jersey State Senator Ray Lesniak, one of the state’s most instrumental legislators in getting New Jersey to authorize and offer intrastate online poker, has now proposed legislation which would allow the state’s licensed online sites to accept players from other countries in addition to New Jersey residents and visitors. Lesniak’s new S980, with State Sen. Jim Whelan as co-sponsor, renews a bill sponsored by Lesniak in late 2013 which would allow the international players, though players from other US states would still be barred.

Poker News: Atlantic Club Casino Closes, Cancellation of Borgata Tourney and more

by Haley Hintze

FIRST EVENT IN BORGATA WINTER POKER OPEN FROZEN AFTER BOGUS CHIPS CONFIRMED

The Borgata’s annual Winter Poker Open suffered a blow when New Jersey gaming regulators ordered the cancellation of the WPO’s opening event after a large quantity of counterfeit chips were discovered. Twenty-seven players remained in the event, a $560 buy-in tourney which drew a massive 4,814-player field, when the full extent of the cheating was uncovered. No arrests have been made in the matter, nor has a final resolution been made regarding a possible distribution of more than $1.4 million in prize money to the event’s remaining players.

ATLANTIC CLUB DOORS CLOSE AFTER TUMULTUOUS FINAL YEAR

Atlantic City’s Atlantic Club Casino closed permanently on January 13th after court approval of an asset purchase by two AC competitors, Caesars and Tropicana. The Atlantic Club entered bankruptcy proceedings last year, shortly after backing out of a deal with PokerStars that could have kept the casino, Atlantic City’s oldest, open—pending regulatory approval for PokerStars, which may have been unlikely. The Tropicana claimed the gaming equipment while Caesars assumed ownership of the hotel and land itself in the accepted deal; the closing of the Atlantic Club itself resulted in layoffs for the casino’s approximately 1,800 workers.

PokerStars Battle in America: Truths, Consequences, and Options

By Wendeen H. Eolis

Last week the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement finally announced that PokerStars' application for a gaming license has been suspended for two years—with one pointed equivocation. If the Company seeks relief from this suspension, based on appropriately “changed conditions” within the Company, the DGE says its license application may be reassessed sooner.

The DGE cites the unresolved indictment of PokerStars founder Isai Scheinberg as the "primary" cause for the decision. Insiders close to the regulator say there are  various other management concerns  in the mix, notably including questions as to Isai Scheinberg’s current involvement in Poker Stars. A settlement agreement between the Company and the U.S. Department of Justice, (arising from the Government’s prosecution, U.S. v Scheinberg et al April 15, 2011) presently prohibits Isai Scheinberg from assuming any leadership role in the Company.

Truths and Consequences

It is hard to imagine  separating the Scheinberg name from PokerStars; it stands for immense technical know-how in the world of online poker security, an uncanny understanding of the poker business, exceptional responsiveness to customers' wants and needs, and impeccable financial integrity with its patrons. These are the hallmarks of Isai Scheinberg’s PokerStars and they continue to be at the heart of the Company’s operating philosophy with its customers, under his son Mark Scheinberg, say their legions of fans. The younger Scheinberg now holds the reins as CEO,

The Company’s detractors, however, debate PokerStars' business principles beyond the glow of customer satisfaction. Reports of uneven relationships and questions of fairness on the part of the Company in their arrangements with various corporate business partners and a large force of independent contractors surface periodically.   So do  complaints of a corporate strategy that  promotes and endorses "uninformed accusations"  of character deficiencies of successful competitors and others not in favor with the Scheinbergs. The chief gripe noted by several competitors and former service providers is  "bad-mouthing  that emanates  from the top of the pyramid,”
