While the 2013 WSOP Main Event kicks off in Las Vegas, a different poker drama is being played out on the East Coast. Two interesting partnerships have been announced in connection with the implementation of intrastate online gambling in New Jersey.
The first partnership announcement is between Resorts Casino Hotel and The Rational Group, which owns the PokerStars brand. The reason for the online poker operator teaming up with a land casino is that licenses for operating online gambling sites will be issued only to Atlantic City land casinos. Earlier PokerStars was trying to purchase Atlantic Club Casino, but the deal fell through. PokerStars ruled the American online poker market before Black Friday and has paid a hefty price to clean its slate with the Department of Justice. It was not going to back off so easily. Within weeks the agreement with Resorts Casino was finalized. Resorts Casino was the first casino to open in Atlantic City and this will be a great selling proposition for PokerStars. On this occasion Mark Scheinberg, CEO of The Rational Group, said, “Resorts is a fantastic partner for us and we are looking forward to launch PokerStars in the U.S. in association with the other quality brands Resorts has brought to Atlantic City.”
The second partnership is between two flamboyant groups, the Trump Taj Mahal casino and the online gambling operator Ultimate Gaming. Ultimate Gaming already offers legal online poker in the state of Nevada. In fact today it is the only legal online gambling operator in the United States. Though they use his name, Donald Trump is a minority investor with no management control in the Trump casinos. However he has retained the rights to use his name in online gambling. And it is likely that in the near future some announcements may be made through which Donald Trump personally enters the fray. His daughter, Ivanka Trump (in picture), said, “Given the way online gaming is rolling out on a state-by-state basis, we really want to keep our options open.”
Other important partnerships that were revealed after the New Jersey license applications were filed are as follows: Caesars Entertainment Corp and 888 holdings Plc and MGM Resorts International and Bwin. Party Digital Entertainment Plc.

Michael Zucchet, the 43-year-old general manager of San Diego Municipal Employees Association (MEA), finished fourth and collected a prize of $144k at a World Series of Poker (WSOP) event in Las Vegas.
Zucchet, who had registered for the NL Texas Hold’em Tournament, a $1k buy-in event that was being played on Sunday, had to beat an impressive player field of 2,882 players to win his prize. After two days of tough poker play, he emerged as one of the finalists of the event. He successfully eliminated two other finalists, but could not become the champion because he lost his entire chip stack to the player who ultimately became the champion of the event. <

The Black Card Program is back at the popular Full Tilt Poker. While no one really even expected Full Tilt Poker to make it back out of the woodworks, youll see that the patches for Full Tilt are actually back popping up in a few different places, especially at the World Series of Poker in Las Vegas. While Full Tilt came back after they were purchased by the massive and most popular online poker site in PokerStars, they have slowly started doing quite a few of the things that they did in the past. Obviously one of the things that came back quickly were the different poker tournaments and guarantees that come along with the poker tournaments, but another nice addition that Full Tilt brought back was their Black Card loyalty program.
