  13. Thursday night’s PokerStars PA SCOOP schedule was highlighted by a pair of fast and furious head-up, progressive total KO tournaments.

  16. Regulated online poker in the US made some leaps in 2019, and if the market can have a similar legislative year in 2020 as it did in 2019, things will be moving along quite nicely.
