Through 49 events …

After Scotty Nguyen‘s big HORSE win, looks like winning the Mainer is California‘s only hope of claiming the Poker Capitol crown, which Nevada clearly has a solid grasp on at this point — even after player transfers.

Regional moves of note:
Vermont — the WSOP latecomer scored its ITM finish, a final table no less, moving it past Hawaii (21 cashes), Washington DC (5 cashes), and Belarus (4 cashes) in the money grab.

Speaking of money … we’ve also continued to fix a few bugs, make corrections, and recalculate on the pirated version of Bank Street Writer that powers these standings, and in doing so have reduced the margin of error to 1.88 times e to the 6th power percent … whatever that means.

    A reply to Dan’s comment on my blog:

    Panama is considered North America. And that’s the money total that I put it in. All of Central America is part of North America, as goofy as that sounds.

    C’mon, Antarctica! (More players should represent Antarctica, because the tax rate is low. Zero percent!)
