Six month update on Harrah’s WSOP chip snafu
Tim Lavalli and Amy Calistri today provided a six-month update to the chip saga at the final event of the World Series of Poker, in which an extra two-million in chips was added to some players chip stacks during a color-up in the event’s final stages. Read all about it here:

Tony G. Poker to stop serving US customers
This was reported on Tony G’s blog today:

Tony wrote, “It’s a very, very sad day for Tony G. There are no options for me to keep the room open to USA players.”

He went on to add that, “…with the USA government on a rampage, happy to freeze the funds of players that only wanted to play poker, that will put everyone at great risk as we have no way to pay our USA players.”

The only way possible to withdraw your funds from Tony G. Poker at this time is by doing the following:
1) Transfer your funds to Tony, his player id is “Tony G”2) Once the transfer is complete, send an email to “support@tonygpoker.com” detailing the amount you transferred, your player id, and one of the three accounts you would like your funds transferred to: UltimateBet, FullTilt, or PokerStars – also giving your player ID on the site you want your funds transferred to.

(If you don’t have an account at one of those sites, please click on a banner on the left and open a real money account at the one of your choice). Regrettably, there is no banking option open at this time since everything is being closed to USA citizens and the government’s strong arm tactics of protecting our borders from poker has removed yet another freedom. I want you to know that I will do my best to guarantee payment to you and keep your faith in dealing with me. You can check back here for updates.
