Full Tilt up then down again

Ive been watching the situation develop around Full Tilt poker because, well, its dominating the poker news again, and behaving like a roller coaster. At this point Ive used to set up an email alert for every time Full Tilt is mentioned in the news. The week started off with the bad news that the AGCC (Alderney Gambling Controlmission) had given up on waiting for Full Tilt to get its act together and was revoking the sites license. Which means essentially, they could no longer offer gambling services anywhere. Now, yes, they do have a secondary license with a Canadian firm, but that license requires that their maintain a valid first license and if the first license is revoked, the second isnt valid without a review.

A guide on how to play video poker

Video Poker was introduced somewhere in the 1970s. It was around the same time personal computers were introduced.

EPT8 San Remo: Gianluca Trebbi leads on home soil

It felt a bit déjà-vu-all-over-again in San Remo today as the European Poker Tour made its second appearance on the Italian Rivieria in just six months. Last time around it was Royal Wedding week, with celebrations back in Blighty mirrored here by the travelling British contingent who cheered Rupert Elder to his first major title.

Now, in its new early autumn slot as opposed to the early spring, San Remo keeps its appeal, albeit with temperatures ten degrees cooler. The cafes have postponed winter closure for another week, waiters have dusted off outdoor seating and casino staff have re-read the rules about short trousers and official dress codes. <
