I have been following what has been a pretty exciting World Series of Poker this year from Las Vegas. You can find the live updates here at the WSOP website. They have also been streaming the final tables live in webcam-style fashion.
This event has proven just the tonic to get people diverted away from all the negative online poker news elsewhere, like the US government's Black Friday crackdown that shut down online poker operations in the USA.
These outside problems have really cast a cloud over the poker world in general, and have made for more news headlines than the actual event itself. But fortunately, thanks to the WSOP, live poker rolls on. Much as the federal US government tried to rub poker out, it's still standing.
