Take the Poker Throne during PDC’s Tourney King monthly leaderboard challenge

At the beginning of every month, PDC Poker launches a new Tourney King promotion, a tournament leaderboard challenge that eventually culminates in a prizepool of over $20,000 in cash and prizes.

In an effort to make things fair, PDC Poker has both a Low Limit leaderboard (for online poker tournaments with buy-ins less than $20, which includes all freerolls) and a High Limit Leaderboard (for online poker tournaments that have $20+ buy-ins). Each leaderboard has its own Grand Finale tournament on the second Sunday after the month ends. Anyone who lands in the top 250 places on either leaderboard receives a ticket to the Finale.

Who Will Sports Betting Fans Pick To Win In Celtics Vs Lakers?

Sports betting fans may want to spend some time considering who will come out on top of this weekend’s NBA clash between the Boston Celtics and the LA Lakers.

With Sunday’s (January 30th) fixture at the Staples Center being the first time the teams have faced each other since the Lakers beat the Celtics four games to three to win the 2010 NBA championship, tensions could well be running high.

And while last year’s championship series proved to be a tight encounter, sports betting fans may also find Sunday’s game a close one to call, as both teams currently top their respective divisions.

However the Celtics have a slightly better record than the Lakers having won 34 of their 44 games, including Thursday’s 88-78 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers.

“It’s a huge game and with them coming back here, they are going to be angry,” Lakers center Andrew Bynum states, adding that the game is “going to be tough and it’s going to mean a lot”.

Whichever team comes out on top, however, their opponents will quickly get the chance for revenge, as the Lakers visit Celtics’ TD Garden on February 10th.

Cuba Will Have Casinos, Again

Casual tourism is still difficult, but it will be much easier for students and teacher, religious groups and journalists to request permission to visit Cuba.  He had already made it easier for Cuban-Americans to travel to see relatives on the island.

Although the State Department takes the position that tourists cannot legally travel to Cuba, my reading of the statutes is a little different.  To obey federal laws, all U.S. c
