Tommy Angelo Presents: The Worst Play Ever

Dear reader: This happened in 2003…

For my birthday last year, Kay my girlfriend enrolled me in a fiction-writing course at Stanford. "Maybe you could get rich by writing a book about being broke," she said. "Others have."

I went to all ten three-hour evening sessions. I did my homework and I paid attention in class. The teacher told us, "Don't let the facts get in the way of a good story." That hit me where it helps, and I was forever changed as a writer, no longer confined by an allegiance to the truth.

NJ Sports Betting Case Nets A Price Tag Of $8.6 Million In Legal Fees by J.R. Duren

Freedom doesn’t come cheap.

Earlier this month, online publication Observer reported that New Jersey had spent $8.6 million in legal fees during its sports betting appeal. The state is asking the US Supreme Court for the freedom to create and enact their own laws regarding sports betting.

WSOP generated some rare positive news for the US online poker community this week.

Starting as early as May 1, its customers in Nevada and New Jersey will be able to play side by side for the very first time. The three-state agreement also includes the 888 Poker sites operating in NJ and Delaware. All three states will pool liquidity within a shared online poker network.

Traffic in the NJ and NV markets will essentially double overnight, and the long-term benefits figure to be substantial. WSOP expects to launch its multistate poker client within two weeks, pending final approval from regulators.

One day after the anniversary of Black Friday, online poker players in New Jersey awoke to the best news they’ve heard in years: Interstate player pooling is coming, and it’s coming real soon.

The states involved are Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey. Nevada and Delaware have shared pooling since March 2015.
