George Clooney Responds To Casino Owner

Back in April, Steve Wynn and George Clooney were having dinner, and a heated exchange ensued. The spat became public and the center of celebrity gossip.

The two have slightly different accounts of what exactly went down. Wynn claimed that Clooney got drunk and basically got overly pro-Obama. Weeks later, Clooney has refuted Wynn’s account of what was said. The actor presumably wanted to clear the air.

Here is Clooney’s full statement (via People Magazine):

“Steve Wynn and I have met three times, two times for dinner. That is the extent of our knowledge of one another, so I will refrain from trying to categorize him based on the little time we’ve spent together, but I will not let his version of the truth go unchallenged.

“He now says he didn’t call the president an ‘asshole.’ That is false. He bellowed ‘I voted for the asshole,’ and then called him the same thing several more times as the dinner came to an abrupt end. Again there were eight people at the table, eight witnesses. I did in turn, call him the same body part, and walked out. Again he can make up whatever story he wants, but these are the facts. He said I drank 16 shots of tequila. I didn’t drink one shot of tequila, not one. We were drinking but it was early and we still had two events to attend.”

“He said I live in a bubble. More of a bubble than Las Vegas? Honestly? He says I’m ‘molly coddled,’ that I’m surrounded by people who coddle me. I would suggest that Mr. Wynn look to his left and right and find anyone in his sphere that says anything but ‘yes’ to him. Emphatically. I did not attend a private boys’ school, I worked in tobacco fields and in stock rooms, and construction sites. I’ve been broke more of my life than I have been successful, and I understand the meaning of being an employee and how difficult it is to make ends meet.

“Steve is one of the richest men in the world and he should be congratulated for it, but he needs to take off his red sparkly dinner jacket and roll up his sleeves every once in a while and understand what most of the country is actually dealing with…or at least start with the fact that you can’t make up stories when eight people who are not on your payroll are sitting around you as witnesses.”

AGA Responds To Adelson’s Anti-Web Poker Efforts

Las Vegas Sands owner Sheldon Adelson will soon be launching an organization to combat the spread of legalized web gambling in the United States. Not long after the news broke, the American Gaming Association, the commercial casino industry’s top lobbying group, came out with a response.

Ironically, Las Vegas Sands is a member of the AGA, which is behind the idea of legalization of online gambling both at federal and state levels. The AGA works on Capitol Hill and thus is primarily concerned with the chances of a federal bill, also because nearly everyone agrees that a state-by-state patchwork is not ideal. Nationwide authorization in one fell swoop means a lot more money for casinos.

However, Adelson doesn’t want online gambling in the U.S. in essentially any capacity.

The AGA said in a statement:

“Time and again, government efforts to prohibit use of everyday products have failed. In 2012, Americans spent nearly $ 3 billion gambling with rogue offshore operators. The Internet cannot be forced back into the bottle — nor can market demand. We support pragmatism and strong regulation of online gaming that protects consumers, prevents underage play, ensures the integrity of the games and empowers law enforcement. New government efforts to prohibit online gaming will unintentionally strengthen black market providers, create more risk for American consumers, including children, and drive U.S. jobs and potential revenues overseas. We appreciate divergent viewpoints and welcome a healthy discussion on this complex issue.”

It is worth noting that Las Vegas Sands already offers mobile sports betting in Nevada, which is more or less similar to the mainstream definition of online gambling. Many also say Adelson’s moral position is inconsistent since he is a casino owner after all.

The billionaire has kept reiterating that he is worried about minors being able to play online, a fear that even the strongest advocates of web gambling admit is legitimate. Just like brick-and-mortar properties that get duped by fake IDs, online casinos don’t have perfect records at preventing those who shouldn’t be playing from playing. However, that’s the inherent risk of any industry that has restrictions on who can participate. Many obviously argue that the risks are low enough to permit the industry’s existence. Some tout the enhanced safeguards on the web.

The debate within the gaming industry, thanks to Adelson’s intensified efforts to slow the legalization of online gambling, is far over. It seems impossible to think that Adelson’s efforts could turn back the clock on online gambling developments that have happened since Black Friday in April 2011, but he apparently will try to do just that.

So far, Nevada, Delaware and New Jersey have legalized betting on the web.

Some in other states like California have tried in the past, but efforts have always failed. It seems reasonable to think that Adelson’s lobbying against web gambling in the Golden State could delay authorization there indefinitely, not that the state was going to legalize online poker anytime soon in the first place. The tribes can’t come to a consensus.

Clearly, Adelson’s commitment to spending on the anti-web poker front raises tons of questions about the future of the fledgling industry in the U.S.

Adelson is prepared to campaign against the idea of legalizing web gambling on a federal level too, but he probably doesn’t need to. Nearly everyone sees a federal I-gambling bill, whether it authorizes just poker or other games as well, as drawing near dead.

White House Responds to Online Poker Petition

After an online petition with the message of legalizing and regulating web poker was created by the Poker Players Alliance in Sept. 2011, and after it garnered nearly 10,000 electronic signatures, the White House responded.

Brian Deese, Deputy Director of the National Economic Council, said in the press release:

Thank you for taking the time to participate in the “We the People” petition process. We launched this online tool as a way of hearing directly from you, and are pleased to see that it has been effective in soliciting your feedback. We understand your interest in the petition to support the legalization of online poker, and appreciate the opportunity to share President Obama’s concerns about this issue.

The Administration understands that many Americans engage in paid online poker games for entertainment purposes. Online gambling on sporting events or contests violates federal law. The legality of other forms of online gambling is dependent upon the law of the states where the bettor or gambling business is located. It is left to each state to determine whether it wishes to permit such activity between its residents and an online poker business authorized by that state to accept such wagers, but online gambling that is not authorized by state law may also violate federal statutes.

The rapid and anonymous nature of the internet distinguishes online games from onsite games, such as those in casinos, and creates distinct challenges. For example, there are many means of technologically circumventing restrictions on online gambling that can allow individuals from countries where gambling is illegal — or even minors — to play using real currency. Online games also have greater potential for fraud because gambling websites are much cheaper and easier to establish than on-site locations, and like telemarketing scams, can appear and disappear overnight. Finally, online gambling can be used in money laundering schemes because of the volume, speed, anonymity, and international reach made possible by internet transactions. The Administration will continue to examine this issue and is open to solutions that would help guard against the use of online gambling sites as tools for conducting illegal activities or preying on unsuspecting individuals to the extent that online gambling is permitted.

Thank you once again for signing the online petition. We appreciate hearing your opinions and look forward to hearing from you again soon.

UB Responds to Data Leak

The CEREUS Network is back in the news, and it has nothing to do with the repayment of player funds. Last week, personal data from player accounts was publicly leaked anonymously on the TwoPlusTwo poker forums, causing panic among poker pros who worried that their credit card or social security numbers would be compromised.

Subject:Poker was able to take a look at the data and discovered that no social security numbers or financial account numbers were released. Still, players were concerned. And to our surprise, someone at UB actually began responding to emails this week.

According to a reply sent to The Examiner, UB said it is aware of the data leak and conducting an investigation. The spokesperson added that the company was able to confirm that the published information did not include players’ personal banking or credit card details, and if an actual theft of UB and Absolute Poker data occurred, it will do everything possible to bring the criminals to justice.

The Nightly Turbo: PokerScout Traffic Numbers, Qureshi Responds, and More

Poker News

We’re here to bring you the top poker news stories of the day. Not the news about the “poker” game Bill Belichick and Rex Ryan are playing. Yes, we have football on the brain. Back to why you’re here. PokerScout has posted the online poker traffic numbers from last week and there’s been a shake up in the top three. On top of that, Haseeb Qureshi has written a blog about his involvement with Jose “Girah” Macedo. If you want to find out more, you have to keep reading.

In Case You Missed It

The Epic Poker League kicked of its first Main Event on Tuesday and the PokerNews Live Reporting Team was there to bring you all the action. The $ 20,000 buy-in event attracted 137 players and by the end of the day, only 63 remained.

Sometimes you’re too busy to watch TV. We understand. That’s why we watch it and bring you the recaps. ESPN continued its 2011 World Series of Poker coverage Tuesday night with the final table of the $ 50,000 Poker Player’s Championship.

Kristy Arnett caught up with Joe Hachem Tuesday night at the Epic Poker League Main Event to talk strategy. Hachem recounted a hand he played that day where he played the player and won the hand.

Shakin’ Up the Top Three

Last week, we told you that online poker traffic had fallen. It seems that online poker traffic is like a yo-yo, because this week, PokerScout is reporting a 1.7 percent rise in traffic for the first week of August.

PokerStars is yet again the site to beat. The site has seen a 30 percent increase in traffic since the Full Tilt Poker shutdown in June, and the online poker giant now holds over 50 percent of the worldwide online poker market. PokerStars may have a strong hold on the top spot, but the second and third spots have switched places. PartyPoker lost ground last week, allowing the iPoker Network to inch ahead and take over second place.

Five of the top ten sites saw decreases in traffic. Everest Poker also saw a decrease in traffic, falling three spots to 16th. Some sites that are moving on up include IPN, which moved up one spot to 13th and Bodog, which moved from 16th to 14th. joined the party again and found itself in the top 20 again, in 19th place.

In the last year, PokerScout’s ACES indicator has determined that online poker traffic has decreased by 22 percent.

If you’re into numbers, there’s plenty more data where that came from over on

Qureshi Responds

We’ve told you about the Jose “Girah” Macedo dramabomb, so you know that Daniel “jungleman12″ Cates and Haseeb “INTERNETPOKERS” Qureshi were also implicated.

After the drama, CardRunners parted ways with Qureshi and released a statement saying, “Effective immediately, CardRunners has decided to part ways with Haseeb Qureshi. While Haseeb is a talented instructor, he has shown poor judgement in using a stakee’s poker account for his own play. We’ve informed Haseeb of this decision and it is final.”

Qureshi took to his blog to tell his side of the story. Yes, we know it’s TL;DR, but we read the whole thing to give you the CliffsNotes version. Qureshi admitted to playing under Macedo’s account, which resulted in Macedo’s disqualification from the BLUFF Challenge. He then goes on to detail how Macedo’s scam unfolded and what he did to break the news to the people who were scammed.

“When Jose’s Lock account got locked once we reached Gibraltar and I spoke with Jungle in person, we agreed that we should pay via bank wire to ensure that everyone involved received their funds immediately without worry. We wanted to be as amenable as we could to those who got scammed, recognizing that we were in a position of authority, and spent most of that night cursing Jose for being so f***ing stupid and working out the details with the group,” he wrote.

Australian Poker Hall of Fame

The Australian Poker Hall of Fame recently announced two members of the 2011 Hall of Fame class. Leo Boxell, who just won APPT Melbourne, has over $ 1.1 million in winnings and is a familiar face in poker rooms around Australia.

The second member of the 2011 class of the Australian Poker Hall of Fame is tournament director Danny McDonagh. He is the first non-player to be inducted into the Australian Poker Hall of Fame. McDonagh is currently PokerStars’ director of live operations in the Asia-Pacific region.

“I’m honored to be the first administrator in the Aussie Hall of Fame alongside such select company like Joe Hachem and Jeff Lisandro. When I began my poker career as a tournament director at Crown Casino, the team was running a $ 1,000 event that eventually became the Aussie Millions. I mean, who would have known that it would become the international icon that it is today,” said McDonagh in a press release.

The Australian Poker Hall of Fame committee is still deciding on the rest of the 2011 HoF class. Jason Gray, Sam Khouiss, Keith Sloan, and Tino Lechich are among those being considered. has more on the Australian Poker Hall of Fame.

ESPN Inside Deal

ESPN’s Inside Deal is back this week with a new episode. Jon Anik, Bernard Lee, and Andrew Feldman were all together again in the Bristol studio. The three discussed the Epic Poker League, the 2011-2012 World Series of Poker Circuit, and Full Tilt Poker.

We would have embedded the video for you, but we’re not huge fans of the auto-play function. You can check out the latest Inside Deal at

Are You Livin De Life?

We’d like to give a shoutout to TwoPlusTwo for this gem you’re about to watch.

According to the YouTube page, A. Samuels “is a 55-year-old casino executive with a passion for hip-hop music.”

Phil Ivey makes a cameo in the video and lyrics at around the 3:15 mark. “MJ, Ivey, Shaq, and AI, the bosses looked at me and said damn you fly.”

This not only gave us a laugh today, but also made us scratch our heads. Did this guy lose a prop bet or is he actually serious?

Follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. We can’t really think of a reason not to.



“Dad, this is really embarrassing.”


That party dropped to 3rd instead of increasing their traffic post-FTP shutdown is a testament to the incompetence of their management. Fix your damn software and steal FTP’s tourney schedule if you must. Most if not all of FTPs traffic could have been yours, and this is entirely your fault.


IPN taking over second spot from PartyPoker is a testament to the continuous refusal of PartyPoker to join the 21st century and hire some serious Graphic Designers and revamp their platform. Forced to move from FullTilt I recently qualified for the $ 200K and the $ 800 World Poker Tour Paris Grand Prix qualifier this Sunday … and it was painful navigating this site. I say that as one of the first people to play on PartyPoker in the early days defecting to the FullTilt graphics and easy-to-use menus.

Shout out to PartyPoker … MODERNIZE! Your site is clunky! (rant over)

The Nightly Turbo: Hellmuth Raises Money for the Kids, Blanca Games Responds to Cheating Allegations, and More

Phil Hellmuth

If you’re reading this, that means you made it through the weekend. Good job. We barely did. Thankfully for you though, we did, and can now bring you the top poker news stories of the day. Last week, Phil Hellmuth was involved in a charity poker tournament that raised some serious cash. We’ll tell you just how much was raised, along with the response from Blanca Games regarding the new UB cheating scandal, and more.

In Case You Missed It

The largest-ever World Series of Poker Circuit Main Event concluded early Monday morning in Hammond. Wondering who is the owner of a shiny new Circuit ring? Find out in our WSOP-C recap.

Sunday is poker’s biggest day on the virtual felt. Sorel Mizzi came out on top of the PokerStars Sunday Warm Up, good for $ 149,737.10. Who else have huge scores? Read the Sunday Briefing to find out.

The 2010 World Series of Poker Main Event Final Table is inching closer and closer. Today, we profiled Matthew Jarvis. Find out how he got to the Final Table and what to expect.

Every week, Kristy Arnett heads over to another poker pros home to check out where they grind out their online poker sessions. This week, she checked out Brian Rast’s setup at Panorama Towers. Watch the video in the latest Sunday Grind article.

Raise it Up

Last week, Phil Hellmuth emceed the third annual “All In” for Kids charity poker tournament in New York City at the Mandarin Oriental. Over $ 900,000 was raised for the Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

“All In” For Kids was founded by Beth and Dan Shak. This year, the tournament was presented by Jami and Joel Friedman. Funny man Steve Martin was also on hand to co-host with Hellmuth. The tournament was won by John Foley. More than 40 sponsors contributed to the cause, which benefits children across the country who go to the Center of Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment for therapies that don’t exist anywhere else.

Check out the press release for more.

Responding to Cheating Allegations

Blanca Games, owner of UB and Absolute Poker, has issued a statement regarding the recent cheating allegations on UB from XMT Liquidations Inc., formerly known as Excapsa Software. The comments by the liquidation company were made in the context of a dispute between it and Tokwiro Enterprises, which Blanca Games says it “has no interest in,” but “wishes to clarify its current understanding of the incident cited in the Liquidator’s letter.”

“Blanca understands and believes that the incident referred to by the Liquidator dates back to 2004 when the brand was owned and operated by Excapsa.” An incident that has been reported to the regulatory authorities.

“The 2004 incident has no impact whatsoever on current players and customers of or Blanca will continue to do everything in its power to protect its players and customers by providing the highest levels of security on its sites,” said the press release. has more.

Is Tony the Third Most Hated Man in Poker

The title of Tony G’s latest blog is, “I am the third most hated man in poker.” We can only assume he’s speaking of the poll that Doyle Brunson conducted on his Twitter where he asked his followers to rate the “poker player you want to kill” among other categories. Phil Hellmuth topped the list (although we don’t think these followers took into account the money Hellmuth has raised for various charities – come on guys, give him a break!), while Russ Hamilton landed in the second spot, and The G rounded out the top three.

This ranking caused Tony to do some soul-searching, it seems, and he has taken to his blog to apologize (in true Tony G fashion) to Andrew Robl for the way he acted on a recent Big Game episode. “I crossed the line with calling the clock on him and giving him a big welcome to the game. I like the kid and wish him all the best – he’ll thank me in later years for this treatment – he will be a man for it. Robl learned that I am a big crocodile with Lithuanian stripes – unlike Vlad the Impaler I don’t go for the neck; I bite nit heads off clean as this picture shows.”

And to all of his haters, Tony says, “I love all my haters, I really do and hope they can vent against me even more.”

Cracking Down

Full Tilt Poker is cracking down on online poker bots. In a recent email sent to a number of players, the online poker site confirmed that several users were using bots, obviously this is against the T&Cs, so the accounts were banned and funds confiscated.

The number of bots and money “won” was not disclosed. “For a number of reasons, we are unable to provide additional information regarding this case, including the players involved and the game type where it occurred,” the email said. has more.

The Team’s in Hammond
