John Kane was playing at a row of four low-limit Game Kings outside the entrance to a Chinese fast-food joint at the Fremont. When he hit the Cash Out button to take his money to another machine, the candle lit at the top of the Game King and the screen locked up with a jackpot worth more than $1,000. Kane hadn't even played a new hand, so he knew there was a mistake. He told a casino attendant about the error, but the worker thought he was joking and gave him the money anyway.

At that point, Kane could have forgotten the whole thing. Instead, he called a friend and embarked on the biggest gamble of his life.

In 2011, the Justice Department targeted online-poker operators for violating the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. Since then, many guileless amateurs, known to poker pros as "fish," have been moving back to casinos.

If you live in Nevada, you can legally play online poker for money again. No help for the rest of us, but at least it's a start.

Maybe Dallas wouldn't be ranked as the 34th most dangerous city in America if Dallas police weren't devoting precious resources to raiding friendly poker games played by veterans. In his latest video for, Drew Carey examines a paramilitary-style raid on a poker game at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1837 in Dallas, which has now been forced to close its doors.

Gus Hansen and Daniel Negreanu face off in a pot that's gonna cost one of 'em about a third of a million donuts.

Remember, in HSP, the players use their own money. A whole lot of it.

Ok, it's old news now that Phil Gordon quit Celebrity Poker Showdown, and has been replaced by bad boy Phil Hellmuth, but new eps have started running on Bravo and I gotta say, he's pretty damn good at it. Foley needs to grow his 'stache back and start getting hammered again before the show though.

The new season is on - check it out.

WSOP celeb Chris 'Jesus' Ferguson will do more than just clean you out at the poker table... he'll also fuck up your fruit and veggies with a deck of cards.

Phil Gordon has bailed out of the Celebrity Poker Showdown, leaving a vacancy on the show's cast for the sole possessor of any type of poker skill whatsoever. Speculation has leaned towards Phil Laak as the replacement, but another Phil landed the job - Phil Hellmuth.

Two congressmen from Virginia want to extend the reach of the Wire act (which prohibits gambling via phone) to include internet gambling - which means that 5&10 sit-and-go at Party Poker could land ya 5 to 10 at the Pooper Poker.

Somehow, I don't see the poker table as a place for spiritual recruitment, but evidently someone does.

Is Ben Affleck Changing Lanes? The man who got an early Bounce in the first Celebrity Poker on Bravo has secured his seat at the table for the next World Poker Tour Championship by winning the California State Poker Championship! His Paycheck? A cool $356,400. I think that's more than Gigli made.
