The big news keeps rolling on the Rabbit Hunt, as the iovation story we teased last week completely blew up into a re-visitation of the UB scandal. Then the two look at the Atlantic Club response to the PokerStars lawsuit and whether there is any merit to it, as well as a look at the CA online poker bill draft that is circulating through the poker world.
It turns out lightning can strike twice in the poker news world as two big stories dominate the week again. First, the two look at the complaint the Rational Group filed against the Atlantic Club and discuss the chances they have of succeeding. Then, Lock Poker has been under the TwoPlusTwo cross-hairs for a week and been doing quite poorly in the process, so Chris lets everyone know what he thinks of the situation and why Lock may be heading for a Day of Reckoning.
Two big stories are out this week and Mark and Chris try to cover them from all angles. First, the Atlantic Club/Rational Group deal falls through and the two decide what that means and if Stars has a chance to get back into the deal. Then, Matt Kaufman makes his first appearance since leaving the show, talking about his review of Ultimate Poker and what the Nevada online landscape may look like in the near future.
Lots of "new news but old news" this week on the Rabbit Hunt, and Chris and Mark talk about Bitar's forfeiture, state situations in Illinois and Pennsylvania, and a bit of a verbal battle between Caesar's and the PPA at a gaming conference. All this and more on this week's show.
Black Friday's anniversary led to some interesting news in the poker world, with Bitar's guilty plea and Chad Elie's civil suit leading the way. Then Mark and Chris discuss Florida's new ban on internet cafes and what that means for poker, FTP's new beginner tables, and Daniel Negreanu's big win at the WSOP-APAC main event.
The changing of the guard takes place today as Matt Kaufman as his last show after nearly 3 years co-hosting the Rabbit Hunt. Taking his place is Chris Grove, and the three discuss Ray Bitar's potential plea agreement, Ivey's 9th bracelet, and a bizarre gaming situation in Oklahoma.
We are still in the news doldrums for poker, but there was enough to cover for the week to keep things interesting. First, we have our first poker pro signing from a Nevada-based site, and the two will discuss who is left and whether it was a good fit for the site in the first place. Then the states get another look, with numerous states looking at anti-internet gambling measures, but at least Delaware is moving things along to preserve our sanity.
Chris Grove of Online Poker Report joins us as a guest panelist this week as he offers us his insights into the Illinois gambling bill and how good of a chance it has of passing. Also, the three tackle the new FTP Black Card, Florida's "electronic gambling device" law, and Phil Hellmuth in a mask.
This week is a relative grab bag of news, with Mark and Matt first pretending to be a gossip column by talking about Greg Raymer's prostitution bust and Matt Mirafioti's latest prop bet. In the second half though, things get more serious as the two discuss PokerStars' latest moves, as well as a few states that are making waves in the poker world.
News comes this week out of the DOJ as a claims administrator has been found and will begin the process of paying people out soon. Mark and Matt talk about what this means, when would the money start coming back, and how much of it will players receive. Then, the two discuss the results of the PokerStars vs. Full Tilt match, Jerry Yang's finances, and the latest from the Antigua v. US WTO online poker case on the Rabbit Hunt!
Mark and Matt look at the war of words brewing between Pokerstars and the AGA over the Atlantic Club casino, and whether an earlier offer by Caesars had anything to do with it. On top of that, the two take a look at the wisdom behind separating new and experienced players from the player pool on major poker sites, and whether there is any wisdom in that at all. All this and more on this week's Rabbit Hunt!
On a new episode of the Rabbit Hunt Mark and Matt discuss New Jersey passing online gambling legislation and what it means for the state. Then the two look at the Bluff Magazine Power 20 and who should and shouldn't have made the list.
Matt is back from his panel at the iGaming North America conference and talks about what happened and the interest of online poker in the actual gaming industry. Then the two talk about the chances of a federal bill, the WSOP Ladies Event, and the latest scandal to come out of Partouche.
Mark and Matt are back together again and the two have much to discuss. Matt goes into detail about the types of topics he will cover in the iGaming Conference panel he is in next week. Then the two take a look at Nevada, Delaware, and what is going wrong with the ISPT this time. Finally, they take a brief look at the new WSOP schedule to see what has changed since last year.
Marco Valerio takes Matt's place today to discuss with Mark his recent whereabouts, just how good the news about the New Jersey veto actually is, and another Partouche scandal that comes four years after the event took place.
This week Mark and Matt look at the results of the NBC Heads Up Championship and ask just how crazy Mike Matusow is. After a discussion of what the best final matchup for that event would be, the two turn to the Antigua-US trade dispute (and how that relates to poker) as well as look at whether Harry Reid might have needed to be bribed to start asking for online poker legislation. Stay tuned for another great episode of the Rabbit Hunt!
Matt was at the first round of the NBC Heads Up Championship this week so we talk about how it has gone and the kind of match ups that came out of the initial draw. Then turning to state news, the two look at Christie's potential veto of the NJ bill, Mississippi's attempt to get on the online poker map, and Nevada's push for interstate gaming. All this on this week's Rabbit Hunt!
With the NBC Heads Up Championship looming, we look at the list of the first 32 entries and get an announcement from Cardrunners' own Matt Matros on the matter. On top of this, the two look at the new WSOP: Asia Pacific Accumulator event and the latest out of New Jersey.
Rabbit Hunt is back for 2013 and comes with a full episode of news. Mark and Matt look at the recent developments both in the lobbies that push for online gambling as well as the states in play in 2013. Then, the two look at the ISPT and whether it would just be better to skip the online day 1s and profit anyway. All this and a lot more on a brand new Rabbit Hunt!
Mark and Matt close out the year with Iowa regulators stating they are up to the task of regulating online poker and Spain using Hendon Mob to track poker player winnings. We then wrap things up with our own obligatory end of the year awards. Happy Holidays from the hosts of the Rabbit Hunt!
