  1. 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
  2. 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

  4. Poker talent grows across the United States within players who hone their craft online. How an online player might perform live during the summer is anyone's guess. American PocketFivers did well last summer, headlined by Scott 'Sblum2711' Blumstein's win in the World Series of Poker Main Event. Blumstein's run came as a surprise to many and he likely would not have been on a "top-5" list for a similar preview at this time last year. The five players below are all qualified in their own right. Repeating Blumstein's performance might be a lofty goal but expect to see all of these American P
  5. With the decision to postpone or cancel all current live WSOP Circuit events, the WSOP quickly put together an 18-event online series on WSOP.com for players in New Jersey or Nevada. The series featured 18 gold ring events, with a total of $1.24 million in combined prize pool guarantees up for grabs. The series started March 14, 2020, and ran through March 31. When it was all said and done, the guarantees were smashed thanks to 11,816 total entries generating more than $3.945 million in total prize pools.

  6. [caption width="640"] The Las Vegas strip could soon be full of players as young as 18 if one Nevada lawmaker has his way.(Wikipedia photo)[/caption] A bill introduced in the Nevada Assembly proposes the state lower the legal gambling age from 21 to 18, but gaming officials are quick to push back on such a change. Republican Assemblyman Jim Wheeler submitted the proposal, Assembly Bill 86, at the request of a constituent when Nevada’s legislative session opened Monday. When this proposal comes in front of the State Assembly’s Judiciary Committee in the coming weeks, Wheeler said he’s no
  7. It's time for another look at the legal U.S. online poker scene, with results from WSOP.com, PokerStars, and partypoker across Nevada, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Memorial Day Weekend didn't slow down the online poker action around the U.S., as several big prizes were won on the virtual felt.

Other big results were had by Nick 'Maggs' Olivieri and David 'dehhhhh' Coleman. The WSOP.com Money May Series Main Event drew a field of 494 entries and 2
  8. It’s been a good start to 2020 for New Jersey-based online grinder David ‘dehhhhh’ Coleman who sits atop the USA Online Poker Rankings for the second month in a row.

However, he picked up his biggest scores of January as the end of the month booking a pair of five-figure cashes in back-to-back fashion. First up, Coleman fell just short of taking down the $4

His largest PLB point total came in the Event #25 of the NVPC II Series where he took first place for $9,495.91 and 182.53 PLB points. But that wasn’t his largest
  10. [caption id="attachment_617305" align="alignnone" width="640"] Jed 'JCHAK' Hoffman takes over as Nevada's new #1.[/caption] Nevada has a new #1. Two-time WSOP Circuit Winner Jed ‘JCHAK’ Hoffman rises to the top spot after a month of racking up qualifying cashes while other top Nevadians took some time off.

  16. Since New Jersey began offering regulated online poker, Michael 'Gags30' Gagliano has been one of the highest-ranked players in the Garden State. His dominance apparently knows no bounds and he's now the top-ranked player in the United States. Gagliano owns the #1 spot nationally thanks to his dominance in New Jersey. In the month of October, Gagliano picked up 12 cashes that qualified for PLB points. His biggest score came on October 8 when he took down PokerStars NJCOOP Event #28 ($300 Four Max NLHE) for $12,440 and 197.28 points. That same day he won the $25,000 Weekly Sunday event on WS
  17. It’s another month on top of the PocketFives.com Nevada Rankings for Bobby ‘bcm4924’ McLawhorn.

  18. Online poker players have become accustomed to poker sites going offline for software updates. When WSOP.com went offline in Nevada on Monday night, it was one of the most highly anticipated updates of all time. When the site came back online, players were able to play against players in other states for the first time in the history of U.S. regulated online poker. The re-launch of WSOP.com as the first interstate online poker room in the United States comes 6.5 months after New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware - the only three states that offer regulated online poker - entered into an agreement
  19. [caption width="640"] New Jersey announces agreement to share player pool with Nevada and Delaware[/caption] In what could be a boost to the existing regulated online poker market in the United States, New Jersey, Nevada and Delaware, the three states where online poker has been legalized and regulated, have agreed to a multi-state pact to begin player pools. The office of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie announced the deal with both Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval and Delaware Governor John Carney that will open digital borders, allowing for New Jersey poker players to play against on
  20. It’s been an incredible summer for Las Vegas, Nevada resident David ‘bewater’ Goodman. One in which he has skyrocketed to the top of the rankings in Nevada and into the Worldwide top 100.

He continues to hold a lead of over 1700 points from his nearest competition.
