Connecticut Governor: It’s “Inevitable” That Online Gambling Will Come to the State



The King is reporting the latest news from the poker world

1. PCA Main Event Update.

Three full days of the PCA (Pokerstars Caribbean Adventure) main event have now been completed, with 64 of the original 1,072 entrants still alive in the tournament.

Phil D’Auteuil is the current tournament chipleader, as he managed to finish Day 3 with a little over 1.47 million in chips. Sam Greenwood (1.4 million), Faraz Jaka (1.22 million), Alex Fitzgerald (1.15 million) and Anthony Gregg (1.13 million) will also enter Day 4 near the top of the leaderboard as well.

Some of the notable names who are still alive at this point include:

Luca Pagano - 863k
Bill Chen - 668k
Eddy Sabat - 594k
Barry Greenstein - 379k
Sergio Garcia - 235k
Chris Klodnicki - 157k
Yevgeniy Timoshenko - 122k

All 64 players are guaranteed a minimum of $32,500 for making it through to Day 4. The eventual winner of the event will walk away with $2 million, with the runner-up will take home $1.275 million.

2. Connecticut Governor on Online Gambling.

Last month, the Department of Justice released an opinion in which Assistant Attorney General Virginia A. Seitz declared that the Wire Act only applies to a “sporting event or contest”.

This decision means, amongst other things, that intrastate online poker will likely move forward very quickly in the United States. The decision also increases the likelihood for some kind of federal online gambling legislation to be passed in the near future.

At the time of the announcement, it was widely speculated that Connecticut might be one of the first states to try to leap out of the gate to get online poker up and running in their state.

In a recent press conference, Governor Dannel P. Malloy said that online gambling coming to Connecticut is an inevitability.

More from the Governor:

“If it moves forward, and it’s clearly going to move forward, it’s going to be available in Connecticut.”

3. Real Money Pokerstars Mobile App Launches in Italy.

According to EGamingReview, Pokerstars has launched the first real-money Pokerstars mobile app in Italy.

According to the magazine, real-money apps are also coming to the United Kingdom, France, Denmark and Spain later this year.

4. Duhamel Bounces Back.

Jonathan Duhamel has bounced back very nicely after a home invasion left him hospitalized late last year.

Duhamel took fourth place in the Super High Roller event at the PCA, cashed in the 5k Turbo and is now one of four players left in the $5k No Limit 8-Max event.

Three final tables in a week - that’s a pretty solid comeback after last month’s harrowing events.
