European Poker Awards - Personality Plus

Tony G took down the award of European Poker Personality of the year, a well deserved honor because we at PokerWorks believe Tony G is truly an incredible personality and the fact that he plays poker just makes it even more dynamic.  Tony also faced off against the French in the 'Tony G VS. France Sit N Go which awarded a free entry into the €10,000 high roller event at the ACF WPT National Series.  As Tony G put it, “Five Donkeys versus Tony G!” Gabriel Nassif from Poker Strategy eventually won the event.

Bodog Poker Attempts to Block Data Mining

Every effort will be made to block data mining sites that track online players in Bodog's online poker room.  This is an attempt to put the fun back into online poker.  To name a few, the ban to block data mining will include sites like PokerTableRatings, Poker Site Scout, SharkScope, and PokerDB. Data mining is a way for players to track information about their opponents and is used by more serious players, making the recreational player easy prey.

Lynch Point Social Club Bust

"These are financial crimes, and while it might appear on the surface that it's harmless, it festers into other crimes," said Lt. Robert McCullough, a county police spokesman. Yes, he is talking about the great game of poker after the Baltimore County police busted an illegal poker game in Edgemere MD.  Damn it!  Why do people buy poker chips with their money instead of drugs and prostitutes?  It's sinful that adults gather to play cards and wager on their skills, but they are, at least, keeping the cops busy.
