  1. The Restoration of America's Wire Act has now been introduced in both the US Senateand House of Representatives, causing at least a little bit of concern in the poker world, but that does not mean that efforts to legalize online poker in individual states has stopped. Californiaheld another poker hearing last week, perhaps inching ever so slightly closer to creating a regulated internet poker market in the state. It is still a ways off and there are still several points of disagreement among stakeholders, but the hearings at least indicate that the process isn't moving backwards. One thi
  2. In a recent Scouting Report, PokerScout.com compared the cash game traffic of the US states with legal online poker rooms with traffic data from before Black Friday.

PokerScout found that levels of player activity in New Jersey and Nevada are about the same now as they were before Black Friday. New Jersey is under-performing slightly, while Nevada's current traffic is actually beatin

And that does not even take into account tournaments, where PokerStars is also king. --- PocketFives' news coverage is brought to you by Betsafe, one of the leading suppliers of online gaming products worldwide and a major

  8. The secret is out: Lottery Sit and Gos are popular. They caught on quickly when they were introduced by Winamaxin July 2013, again when they were launched by iPoker earlier this year, and yet again when Full Tiltand PokerStars.es got on board more recently. But they officially hit the prime time when PokerStarsrolled out its version, Spin and Go, on its dot-com site just a couple of weeks ago. And boy, have the players lapped it up. To review, Spin and Gos are three-handed, hyper-turbo sit and gos in which each player starts with 500 chips. Rather than having a standard prize pool comprised
  9. PokerStars is into the second week of its December Festival, a month-long celebration in which at least $15 million in cash will be handed out across a wide variety of game types. Usually, poker room promotions focus on just tournament players or just cash game players, but this one has something for everybody. The first phase, the $1 Million Milestone Handspromotion, has wrapped up and, to put a bow on it, PokerScouthas analyzed how it affected PokerStars' cash game traffic in its weekly Scouting Report.

  11. In early 2010, Full Tilt Pokerlaunched a new variant called Rush Poker, introducing players to the wild world of fast-fold poker. Since then, many sites have started their own versions of fast-fold poker games, all more or less the same as Rush. What looked to some people as initially just a gimmick has proven to be a very popular game with staying power. For those of you who are new to online poker, let's take a brief moment to review what fast fold poker is. At its core, it's the same as regular poker with hole cards, flops, turns, and rivers. The big difference is that once you fold, you

This week in its Scouting Report, PokerScout has presented some information to show just how far Lock Poker has fallen in the poker community.

  15. According to this week's PokerScout Scouting Report, the coming year will be a pivotal one not only for Russia, but also for online poker worldwide. "Players from the Russian Federation currently comprise a significant portion of total traffic on many of the largest poker sites," the PokerScout report stated.

The timeline for the effects of the Russian situation date back to 2012, when the Russian Supreme Court, in response
