NJ passes online gaming bill and we all love @Chitownbeotch
Adam Teasdale $194,040 – WSOP-C Atlantic City
Marcin Wydrowski €318,295 – WPT Prague
Ramzi Jelassi €835,000 – EPT Prague
Marvin Rettenmaier €365,300 – EPT Prague HR
It’s been a rough few days in the States but life goes on and the poker games keep flying. The latest stop on the World Series of Poker Circuit passed through scenic Atlantic City just a few weeks after Hurricane Sandy tore it up. Adam Teasdale is the latest WSOP-C Main Event champion and picked up nearly $200,000 along with a seat in the National Championship.
The powers that be in Prague finally had a brainstorm which hopefully spreads to the rest of Europe. The city held a World Poker Tour, European Poker Tour, and other events throughout most of December. This kept a lot of top poker players within their city for much longer than a hit and run. Marvin Rettenmaier, Ramzi Jelassi, and Marcin Wydrowski were just a few of the big winners.
