  3. Just last week, PokerStars NJ announced their fourth annual NJ Championship of Online Poker schedule with $1 million guaranteed through 50 events over a 17-day period in October.

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

  10. If the fields in the Pennsylvania online poker Sunday Majors on PokerStars PA this week are any indication, there are big things on the horizon in the Keystone State.

[ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Borgata Poker"] Just over one week after starring in the first-ever PokerStars PA Winter Series, 'CL911129' topped the 95-entry field in the $250 Sunday High Roller to win $5
  11. As 2019 draws to a close, PocketFives takes a look back at the year that was in poker news, going month-by-month through the biggest and most important stories of the year.

For Second Time in 8 Weeks, 'Lucky_Jew_17' Wins Sunday Million Most online poker players dream of winning the PokerStars Sunday Million once in their lives, but the vast majority fall short of that goal.

  13. Poker players in Pennsylvania have been flocking to the PokerStars Pennsylvania Championship of Online Poker events so much so that PokerStars has twice upped the guarantees on a number of the events to meet the demand.

  14.
