    thanks ed, we have fixed.

    Just wondering, but what is the word on the poker streets from the pros not involved in this lawsuit, how do they feel? Everyone knows Daniel Negreneau’s thoughts, but what about the other big names like Ivey, Hansen, Doyle, Cunningham, etc think about this?

    I’ll defer to Tom and Michele on that … since they have probably talked with the pros themselves. I know Tom actually got a “card” to play in the PPT … but little has happened with the operation since then.

    Anyone else know what the pros are saying?

    I will have to ask around. A lot of people complain when players don’t speak out on current events. I’m sure one reason is because ultimately we end up playing one another. Having enemies at the table can hurt your strategy (yes, it can help it too). And poker strategy is their main concern, not the politics of poker.
