William Hill Closes Czech Player Accounts Following New Gambling Law

Prominent online gambling site and sports book William Hill has withdrawn from the Czech Republic market as the result of new internet gambling laws that took effect at the turn of the New Year. In an e-mail to affiliates last week, William Hill indicated that it may ramp back up in the Czech Republic sometime in the future. Here is the e-mail, as sent to William Hill affiliates: We would like to inform you, that following recent regulatory developments in The Czech Republic, William Hill will cease to accept business from customers in The Czech Republic. This means, that none of William Hill’s products will be available in The Czech Republic, though players will be able to withdraw from their existing account balances. Furthermore, affiliates are required to remove all marketing materials from their websites (including banners, text links, etc.) that relate to Czech Republic bettors. We value your cooperation

Players Air Issues with European Poker Tour Following Barcelona Event

For 13 seasons, the European Poker Tour has arguably provided one of the best tournament experiences in the industry. Lavish parties, well-run tournaments and other entertainment has been the hallmark of the EPT since its creation back in 2003. According to several players, that has all gone away since the ownership of the circuit changed hands, bad enough that they have actually begun to voice their displeasure. The €5000 Main Event in Barcelona, Spain (which ran at the end of August) was the kickoff to the Season 13 schedule for the EPT, but there was a wealth of other side events that ran in coordination with the EPT Main Event. Over the 12 days that the poker festival was conducted, 64 tournaments were run with buy-ins beginning at €100 and ranging up to the €50,000 Super High Roller. While some might have liked the variety, some in the tournament poker

Las Vegas Review-Journal Writer Leaves Paper Following Restrictions on Sheldon Adelson Content

I got into the poker industry and the writing part of it, specifically, by a happy accident back in 2005. In the eleven years since, I have generally been able to write what I want on my own terms. There have been those rare times, however, when I have been told to stay away from a certain topic or perhaps adjust the way I wrote an article, whether it was to add some sort of mention, remove something, or alter the tone. Only a handful of those times did the request from someone up above truly frustrate me, but hey, it comes with the territory. Not every day is great in any of our jobs; I wasn’t about to quit just because someone pissed me off one day. But then again, I’ve never had a serious journalist role like columnist John L. Smith of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. On Tuesday, 

Moody’s Investors Service Downgrades Amaya Gaming Stock to Negative Following Insider Trading Charges

After last week’s blockbuster announcement that their Chief Executive Officer and five other men would be charged with insider trading, Amaya Gaming now has to deal with the fact that one of the top stock watchers in the industry has downgraded the outlook on their stock. Once it was announced that David Baazov, the now-former Chief Executive Officer of Amaya Gaming who has taken a paid “leave of absence” from the company, was facing charges of insider trading in dealings with Amaya Gaming from Quebec’s Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF), Moody’s Investors Service moved their outlook on Amaya, Inc. and Amaya B.V. and their related assets to “negative.” The AMF is Canada’s version of the United States’ Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the federal organization that is charged with ensuring that there is no wrongdoing on the different stock exchanges in the United States. In announcing that they were moving
