Many busts and all-ins were shown from the outer tables and glimpses of Griffin Benger, Kenny Hallaert and Cliff Josephy were captured.

Ryan Riess held the championship bracelet of the Main Event recently and told everyone that he is one of the best poker champions in the world.

Florida Legislature doubtful to sanction a new contract with Seminole Tribe

Legislation to introduce a brand new gambling compact along with Seminole Tribe is conked in the Florida Senate. As per a report appeared on a leading website, it is likely that it would not be moving anywhere in this session.

Last summer, the earlier compact expired and the tribe has been carrying on their business as usual at its 7 casinos since then. Still, the Seminoles sued Florida regarding the former’s call that its exclusiveness for table games has been breached already. The state has taken the fact that the tribe is presently operating without a compact to court.
