In my latest Hold'em w/ Holloway I ask is forgetting one chip still an all-in bet? There was an interesting hand that took place during the 2016 PCA where a player left a single chip on his cards. It didn't influence the action, but was it possible that it could have? 
In a new Hold'em with Holloway, Managing Editor Chad Holloway examines a unique tournament situation from the 2016 PCA $100K Super High Roller.

The Wisconsin State Legislature is currently debating legislation that would protect Wisconsin's longstanding tradition of playing fantasy sports. Wisconsin has nearly 1 million fantasy sports players and Assembly Bill 800 will protect their rights while establishing reasonable consumer protection measures to ensure a safe and secure marketplace for these games.

Click here to contact your state legislator today to let them know you support fantasy sports and ask them to vote in favor of Assembly Bill 800 -> https://fantasysportsforall.com/connect/wisconsin-email/?utm_source=Draft%20Kings&utm_medium=Email&utm_campaign=MadLibsWisconsin

When it comes to poker they don't get any bigger than Phil Ivey. He's actually the only poker superstar I've never interviewed, but one person who has is Sarah Herring, who caught up with the man at the 2016 Aussie Millions.

After a pregnant woman went into labor and her husband was allowed to substitute in an Aussie Millions side event, I decided to delve a little deeper into what exactly happened. I also found out what would happen if a November Niner were ever to pass away during the hiatus. 
In a new Hold'em with Holloway, Managing Editor Chad Holloway looks at a substitution controversy that happened during the 2016 Aussie Millions.

I had the chance for a behind-the-scenes look at Poker Hot Spot, a new side bet for live poker games. I was very skeptical at first, but after seeing it action and talking to some folks, I believe it could actually help reinvigorate live poker (to a certain degree) and help out struggling poker rooms.

I have some big news to announce. After six great years, I am departing PokerNews to become Media Director and Tournament Consultant for the Mid-States Poker Tour.

My last day as Managing Editor for PokerNews will be Friday, Feb. 12, while my first MSPT stop will be the Wisconsin State Poker Championship from Feb. 19-21.

I look forward to bringing my expertise to the tour-- which has grown leaps and bounds in recent years – and to becoming a part of the MSPT family alongside Bryan Mileski and Eric Anderson. I hope to see many of you at a MSPT stop, and encourage anyone who hasn't experienced it to join us in Season 7.

I also want to thank everyone at PokerNews, which I've lived and breathed since entering the poker industry. Suffice it to say my time there allowed for all of my dreams to come true while working alongside some great people. While the MSPT will be my new full-time gig, I'm happy to say I will still write a few weekly pieces for PokerNews. I will also do limited freelance work for other outlets during the MSPT's downtime.

If anyone has any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.

My new email address will be chad@msptpoker.com.

"Carmen.1957" took down the @888poker Super XL Series Main Event for $168,532. Ended on one heck of a hand, as you can see in the pic. The entire series was a huge success, which you can read about here -> http://www.888poker.com/magazine/888news/2016-super-xl-series-main-event-is-huge-success/

The 888poker Super XL Series continues to roll. The Opening Event set a bunch of new records, and the High Roller event proved a big success. You can check out the latest results in this piece.

On Sunday, the 888poker 2016 Super XL Series kicked off with a record-breaking Opening event. Makes me wish I could play, but at least I got to write about it!

I'm excited at least one lawmaker in Wisconsin is taking a proactive approach to DFS, which I hope can help pave the way for online poker in the future. State Representative Tyler Vorpagel (R-Plymouth) releases a proposal for cosponsorship establishing a regulatory and consumer protection framework for Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) Operators.

Introduction
I'm a Wisconsin native who began a writing career in poker after taking a leave of absence from law school.

In addition to writing daily articles, I occasionally join the PokerNews Podcast and Live Reporting Team.
Bragging rights
I get to write about a game I love while occasionally getting the opportunity to travel to exotic locations around the world to report on tournaments. I also serve as the Wisconsin ambassador for Ante Up Magazine and am a sponsored member of Team Blue Shark Optics.
