Lock Poker’s new cashier
Lock Poker has been receiving a ton of criticism as of late for their slow withdrawal times, but this week rumors have been abound about a new Lock Poker cashier option available to VIP players.

Heads-Up Challenge Match between PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker
The challenge Match between Daniel Negreanu and Team PokerStars vs. Gus Hansen and Team Full Tilt Poker is starting to take shape, with the latest news updating the where and who; the when and how has already been somewhat determined.
This week Negreanu named ElkY and Ike Haxton as the players that will take on Gus, Tom Dwan, and Viktor Blom. The match will also apparently take place on Full Tilt Poker, so US railbirds will be out of luck.
