  1. The excitement of the 2021 PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker may be winding down for international players, but for grinders in Michigan and New Jersey - it’s just getting started. PokerStars has unveiled the complete schedules for both the Michigan Spring Championship of Online Poker as well as the New Jersey Spring Championship of Online Poker. The two series will take place at the same time, running from May 8-24, and while both will feature the traditional SCOOP three-tiered buy-in format (High, Medium, and Low) the two series have been fine-tuned for each of the two U.S. m
  2. In what is seen as a big win for interstate online poker, the First Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in favor of the New Hampshire Lottery Commission in their case against the U.S. Department of Justice and its revised opinion of the Wire Act. As originally reported by OnlinePokerReport.com, the ruling upholds the decision of a lower court that the reinterpretation of the Wire Act by the Department of Justice in 2018 is incorrect. In that revised opinion, the DOJ sought to expand the coverage of the Wire Act beyond sports betting to include all forms of gambling which included lotteries a
  3. It’s not easy to crack into online poker’s worldwide top-100 rankings. But for Americans who play inside U.S. borders on regulated sites, it’s even tougher. United States-based players don’t have access to the massive player pools and huge guarantees that some of the top players grind in order to rack up leaderboard points. For these pros, it takes a doubling-down of volume and effort in order to earn their spot and recognition among online poker’s best. And this week, four of America's best have succeeded in doing just that. Frank ‘thewholefunk’ Funaro Jr. (#52) New Jersey’s Frank Funaro

[caption width="640"] Mike 'JohnnyDrama' Haberman lead in the New Jersey rankings shrunk during January.[/caption] A lot can change in a month and it has in the PocketFives New Jersey Online Poker Rankings. Players have dropped, some farther than others, and players have risen, with the majority of that change occurring towards the middle of the top ten. That’s because Michael 'JohnnyDrama' Haberman has held his spot atop those rankings as the calendar shifts into February, albeit by a much smaller margin than the last time these rankings were updated. One of the main reasons Haberman
  5. [caption width="640"] Mike 'Lav519' Lavenburg recently had his biggest live score to date in a Parx event.[/caption] The world of online poker can be a blurry and mysterious one, as a player can garner a following and reputation without anyone actually knowing who that player is. 'Isildur1' is and was the most well known case of that happening but when New Jersey online poker went live a few years ago, ‘mygame’, a player on WSOP.com and BorgataPoker.com, had the same anonymity. In a relatively small player pool, Mike Lavenburg was eventually identified as the player behind the super aggressi

[caption width="640"] The PokerStarsNJ NJSCCOP schedule is officially released with 35 events on the calendar.[/caption] It seems like PokerStars owns the month of May in the online poker world, and now that includes New Jersey. After opening PokerStarsNJ shop last March, the site quickly unveiled the NJ Spring Championship of Online Poker to great adoration from those within the state and the temporary transplants who made their way in from the Mid-Atlantic and East Coast regions. Now in its second year, the 2017 NJSCOOP schedule has been released and contains more than $1,200,000 in guaran

[caption width="640"] A trip to the desert might be exactly what Mike Azzaro needed to turn his summer around.[/caption] The record heat in Las Vegas this week didn’t stop the masses from heading down the highway to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the annual Electric Daisy Carnival music festival. Mike Azzaro was among those participants who made the pilgrimage. Azzaro’s summer has lacked on the felt with only three cashes and a high point score of $1,178. That hasn’t waned his enthusiasm about his prospects for the remainder of the summer and Azzaro thinks his trip to EDC is just wh

[caption width="640"] Mike Azzaro's summer is off to a slow start but that hasn't dampened his confidence.[/caption] The first full week of the 2017 World Series of Poker is in the books and the wave of thousands who took their shot in the Colossus have come and gone from the Amazon Room.

  16. [caption width="640"] Mike Azzaro is running out of time to turn his summer around.[/caption] Poker tournament professionals are keenly aware of the fact that downswings are inevitable. The duration of them is a complete unknown but when they hit, there is no telling when the sun will shine once again. Mike Azzaro struggles continue this summer as he’s only put together a ledger of $3,850 in tournament earnings. July is right around the corner and Azzaro is running out of chances to earn the big score he came out to Las Vegas seeking. Azzaro’s struggles haven’t intensified to the po
  17. [caption width="640"] After a stellar year of tournament results, Jason Rivkin is nearing the point of leaving poker as a full-time living. (Will OC photo)[/caption] There are many schools of thought about how to be a successful poker player on a long-term basis. Some suggest specializing in a single game and increasing your edge as much as possible while others would say it is better to have a diverse background to have an edge in many games. Jason 'RivJ' Rivkin has chosen to go with the latter approach and it is paying off wonderfully for him. The 29-year-old Rivkin’s background is i
