The Nevada Gaming Control Board continues to amend the regulatory draft for allowing Nevada-based online poker, aiming to provide a solid framework for the development of legal online gaming in the state.

An important part of the draft includes strong measures for ensuring that player funds remain accessible and “reasonably protected.” Specifically, 25 percent of the total player funds must remain in cash, which will be held in a federally insured financial institution. This would be a great boon to players, as issues of slow and non-payment should be eradicated under these regulations.

In a recent hearing on Thursday, November 4th, one proposal stated that player to player transfers should not be allowed by licensed operators. The concern is that players may use their poker account as a bank account, to settle debts or use for other payments. Currently, proposed online poker legislation and regulatory drafts have not laid out any specific clauses which would allow player to player transfers.

The issue of poker bots/artificial intelligence continues to be an important topic for the Board. The goal being to ensure that poker games are played between human players only. This would suggest that hand history databases that generate heads up displays at the table, such as togel Singapore Manager and PokerTracker, would not be outlawed under the current version of the draft.

The Nevada Gaming Control Board has been working diligently towards the licensing of online gambling in the state, even before Black Friday happened. March 2011 saw the Board’s approval of the first relationship between an international online gaming company (888 Holdings) and a Nevada casino licensee (Caesars Entertainment). June 10th, 2011 saw Assembly Bill 258 (AB 258) signed into law, requiring that the Nevada Gaming Commission adopt regulations to license interactive gaming in Nevada by January 31, 2012.

Jackie Glazier Earns Full Tilt Red Status

In only a few years time, Australian native Jackie Glazier has gone from tennis to mathematics to poker, seemingly without missing a beat. As it turns out, her accomplishments have not gone unnoticed by the industry leaders.

Full Tilt Poker has recently announced Glazier as the latest addition to their Red Pro team. She will now represent the company, flying the Full Tilt flag at tournaments and events.

Glazier is, in fact, the first Australian woman to earn a place among the Full Tilt elite. It’s the latest chapter in a journey which began in 2008, when she discovered a love for poker during a series of home games. Venturing into the field as a part-time player for 2009, she earned nearly $15,000. In 2010, her profits rose all the way to $89,275, on the strength of several big wins.

One of the most profitable wins of her career came in the Main Event of the 2010 WSOP. After surviving for five days, Glazier was finally eliminated in 427th place. Though disappointed that the run was at an end, she welcomed a $31,647 infusion into her bankroll. Only a month later, she would finish first at the $1,000 buy-in ANZPT Melbourne event to snag another $36,390.

Since then, she’s managed to add even more money into her all-time profit column. Glazier is highly regarded for her aggressive style of play, paired with an intelligent and genuinely skilled approach to the mechanics of the game. Already known for her proficiency in live events, it will be interesting to see her under the spotlight of the big time online tables.
