WILL NEBRASKA LEGALISE ONLINE POKER?
2015-01-22

Lawmakers in Nebraska are to debate the nature of poker and whether it can be classified as a game of skill following the introduction of a bill to the state legislature by Senator Tyson Larson.

Classification of poker as a game in which skill predominates over luck is a key element in deciding whether the game falls within most legal definitions as constituting the act of gambling.

In Nebraska, all forms of poker are treated as illegal gambling, but Sen. Larson hopes to change that in at least two genres - Draw Poker and Holdem Poker - which he contends are games predominantly of skill rather than chance.

In Nebraska the test of chance or luck is whether the player has control over the outcome of an event; if he or she does not, then it is regarded as a game of chance - an essential component in the definition of gambling.

Nebraska has particularly fierce anti-poker laws that even prohibit Texas Hold'Em poker tournaments, where participants elsewhere pay an upfront entry and registration fee to play in the hope of winning cash or other prizes.

Larson claims that over $300 million leaves the state in gambling revenues as determined punters take their business out of state, a situation that he wants to see reversed.

Explaining the difference between skill and chance, Sen. Larson told the Lincoln Star Journal newspaper:

You can be a professional poker player; you cannot be a professional coin flipper. You can lose a poker game on purpose; you cant lose a coin flip on purpose. You can have the worst hand in poker but be the best player. The math is there; the statistics are there. Poker is a game of skill; it is not a game of chance."

The Senator's bill makes provision for bar owners and other potential operators to be licensed to host poker games that fall within his skill gaming definition. It proposes a 24/7 operating regime with a 5 percent rake on cash games permitted.

State legislators will also consider another proposal - this one affecting the state's constitution - that seeks to dismantle the ban on gambling in Nebraska. Introduced by Senator Paul Schumaker, the amendment has already attracted opposition from other senators who are against any expansion of gambling.

Local political observers have pointed out that Schumaker faces an uphill struggle, bearing in mind that a similar effort by Senator Russ Karpisek met with strong opposition and failed in committee last year.

Sen. Larson's bill faces its first test next week, when a formal hearing in the General Affairs Committee which he chairs has been scheduled.




7-HOUR HEADS UP DECIDES WORLD SERIES OF POKER EVENT 44
2014-06-26


Event 44 at the Apuestas Deportivas Golf Betting Ben Affleck betting odds to win Poker Madden Betting Pandemonia World Series of Poker featured an epic 7-hour heads up that took evenly matched survivors Jordan Morgan (30) and Evan McNiff (28) into an exhausting additional fourth day of action before the winner was decided.

Day 3 of the event - a $1,500buy-in NLHE competition that pulled in 1,914 entrants and offered a prize pool of $2,583,900 - saw a final table formed comprising McNiff and Morgan, along with Jason Johnson, Raymond Foley, Bryan Dillon, Robert Chorlian, Joseph Iarussi, Ryan Spittles and Michael Anselm.

By early evening the heads up stage had been reached following the elimination of Jason Johnson at third for $204,464 and Morgan, who hails from Oklahoma, faced Californian McNiff holding a 4 to 1 chip lead.

It should have been a walkover, but instead the resilience and fighting spirit of McNiff turned it into a six hour marathon that had still not been decided when officials stopped play in the early hours of the following morning, ordering an extra day to reach a resolution.

On Day 4, Morgan and McNiff took their places with almost even chip stacks, but it still took an hour for Morgan to knock his very worthy opponent out for a runner up prize of $295,727 in a classic race result at hand 133.

It was a special day for Morgan, because in addition to his first WSOP bracelet and the main prize of $478,102, he was celebrating his ninth wedding anniversary.

The Oklahoman's win is the biggest so far in a career that has brought him success in both land and internet poker using the handle iMsoLucky0. His previous best win was in 2005, when he collected $405,072 after taking a second place in the NLHE event at the US Poker Championships in Atlantic City.



ONLINE POKER OPERATOR TO CONCENTRATE ON TWO REGIONS
2014-02-18

Citing a lack of player liquidity, Bodog88 Poker's stand-alone network has restricted action to just two regions, withdrawing from all other markets to concentrate on China and Vietnam.

Asian players were informed of the decision last week, and have ten days to exhaust loyalty and VIP points, whilst valid tournament tickets will be reimbursed at cash value.

The decision does not affect the company's casino and sportsbook operations, which remain active in all jurisdictions.

In addition to Bodog88, which is Asian-facing, the brand is carried by Bovada, which operates in the US market, and BodogEU which services Canadian players.
