Full Episode Description
On the latest episode of the PokerNews Podcast, Jeff Platt and Chad Holloway welcome North Dakota Rep. Jim Kasper to the show to talk about House Concurrent Resolution 3012, which would put a measure to allow the internet game on his state's 2022 general election ballot.  Kasper originally tried to introduce a bill in 2005 during the "Poker Boom," but the Wire Act stood in the way. Now that the Wire Act is no longer a concern, is online poker coming to North Dakota? In addition, Chad & Jeff recap WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open, offer odds on a summer 2021 WSOP, give updates on both the Negreanu vs. Polk and Kornuth vs. Galfond challenges, and tell you which sponsored pro and WSOP bracelet winner was banned for multi-accounting.
