Poker Cast 382 - PokerStars in the USA
Live from the Two Plus Two Studios - This week on the Pokercast: A lot has happened over the last week and we’re here to get you caught up. Terrence is driving the ship this week as Adam has some matters to attend to, but he joins us to start off the show. To kick it all off the guys talk about Edward Snowden joining twitter and Terrence’s debut to Twitch, Induct a member to the IPWOF and then get into the news. This week: PokerStars is cleared to operate in New Jersey, the 24/7 poker channel launches and Daniel Negreanu tweets and blogs his views on racism which stems a discussion of our own. We take a break and Adam leaves Terrence and Ross to wrap up WCOOP and the Main Event plus other news of Stars cracking down on software while Party Poker bans HUDS completely. Binion's re negs on some tournament guarantees and some Montreal poker dealers hit the lottery. After the news, Matthew Hilger from PokerStars joins us to talk about the new VIP Steps format, the Red Spade Open $1M guarantee and the 1 cent buy in $100k tournament. Terrence and Ross review the tweets in “140 or less”, read your forum posts and the mail you’ve sent us, and review Ross’ session in the Rossco Report.
