If you've been following the PokerStars blog, or the appropriate Twitter channels, you know that the PokerStars Pro Tour is barnstorming through California to create grassroots support for legislation that would bring regulated online poker to the state.

Use your FPPs for Premier League & Rugby World Cup

Listen, you do what you want with your money. Buy all the watches, cars, and jewelry you want. But for my money, I'll take an experience over a thing any day. You ask me what my favorite things are, they aren't the watch at my bedside, the car in garage, or the new kicks in the closet. My favorite t...more

Eugene Katchalov: Ice cold, warm heart, groom-to-be

Eugene Katchalov is in love. When we met with him in Vegas this year, there was no doubt about that. We asked him what was new, and the first thing he wanted to talk about was his girlfriend, Anna.

PokerStars Spin & Gos just got bigger

"The fog is getting thicker...and PokerStars' Spin & Gos are getting laaaaaaaaarger."That's not exactly the quote, but it's close enough for now.

The evolution of the playing card

These days, we know how particular players can be about their cards. If they don't snap back correctly, it's easy to spot the good cards in the deck.
