Poker News

Things still look grim for the founders for some of poker’s biggest online websites.  If you’ve read my last poker news story, http://q103albany.com/online-poker-websites-shut-down-real-money-games/, you’re up to speed with real money games being shut down by the Department of Justice.  Now, the homes of some of the founders of each of these sites are having their homes seized.

Cardplayer.com’s Julio Rodriguez reports ”On Thursday, Forbesreported that federal prosecutors filed for supplemental forfeiture of five homes connected to Ray Bitar and Chad Elie, two of the 11 indicted by the Department of Justice on Black Friday”.  Bitar, one of the founders of Full Tilt Poker, has four of these five homes as being connected to him. One of these homes is a 2.9 million dollar estate in Glendora.  One home belongs to Elie’s wife, a 1.5 million dollar pad. 

On a brighter note, as we near the 2011 World Series of Poker events that start on June 2nd, ESPN has announced they will double their coverage of the vents!  More than 34 more hours of coverage will be available to us poker fans.  Ryan Lucchesi of Cardplayer.com lists the telecast schedule for you: http://www.cardplayer.com/poker-news/11267-espn-more-than-doubles-2011-wsop-coverage
