When you lose that big game and watch the pot get turned over to your arch nemeses poker rival it might feel like the end of the world, but in reality all of us in the poker circle know this is nothing compared to the challenges and obstacles that others find themselves facing. The horrifically powerful earthquake that struck Haiti earlier this year was way more devastating to many living in the area than the loss of a poker match could ever be.

House Bill 4591 has become quite a contentious issue for the inhabitants of Massachusetts; for some, a blessing and for others, an outrageous proposition. The 172-page bill amendment put forward by the Massachusetts House Speaker, Robert DeLeo, calls for the sections that criminalize online poker and all other forms of Internet gambling to be struck from the bill.

Posted on by RTR Susannah

For the first time ever, the poker-playing public will be able to submit nominations for the Women in Poker Hall of Fame Class of 2010. I shall try and not dwell on the question as to why it took so long for the poker playing community to recognize its female counterparts, especially when they (well, we) lose just as much hard earned cash at the poker tables than any other person does.

Party Poker to Open French Site

At the moment poker players in France have been restricted to playing only with two state companies which have held the monopoly on gambling. All other gambling online has been restricted and banned within the French borders.
