I just watched poker history unfold here at the European Poker Tour Sanremo as Team PokerStars Pro Vicky Coren Mitchell became the first player to ever win two EPT titles. I took a moment to jot down my thoughts as to why this was such a momentous occasion.

Batman is turning 75! If there are any comic fans out there like myself, you might find this a fun read. 
The Dark Knight's 75th anniversary is spawning a year-long celebration. We asked some Batman notables to spill some behind-the-scenes tales from...

Nice legal piece by Attorney Mac VerStandig on Borgata lawsuit against Phil Ivey for his alleged "edge sorting."

I'm not sure how I feel about this. A big part of me believes the casino should take responsibility for honoring Ivey's requests (they do that to court high rollers and that comes with a certain amount of risk), but at the same time Ivey knows it's against the rules but does it anyway. Seems to me both parties need to accept some responsibility here.

Hi Chad. I'm going to look this over and share an opinion.  I have lots of experience in online gambling arbitration.  I like this type of stuff.

Today I watched the best young poker player in the world win a High Roller tournament. Seriously, Ole Schemion is just 21 years old and he has won the poker world. Dude is a beast. That said, he doesn't have a WSOP bracelet and I do... I don't care if he's never been old enough to play the WSOP.

Dominik Panka exploded onto the poker scene at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure earlier this year, and then followed that up with a High Roller win in Deauville. I had the chance to talk to the young Polish player and get his story. http://www.pokernews.com/news/2014/04/new-kid-on-the-block-panka-18063.htm
Dominik Panka won the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, an EPT High Roller, and got a PokerStars sponsorship... all within the last four months.

About to head to the airport. For the next three weeks I'll be in Europe for two EPTs. First up is Sanremo, Italy and then Monte Carlo, Monaco. I've been to the former, while the latter while be a new experience. It's going to be a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. I won't have my cell, so if anyone needs to get in touch with me do it on here or email.
