Quick-Fire Friday Poker News Roundup

Friday comes around damn quick these days, there you are on a Monday morning… and *boom* the world of online poker turns completely on its head and leaves you sitting slightly dazes and in need of a beer at the end of the week.

2+2 Forums Hacked!

We have some insider info on the 2+2 hacking which has left thousands surrying to poker sites and e-mail accounts which use the same password. Apparently this was not a highly qualified hacker at all… just an average user who took advantage of the fact that everybody at 2+2 was far too busy slapping each other on the back, telling each other how awesome they were and generally getting their post counts higher. With everyone that distracted it was just a case of walking in and taking the passwords...

Stars To Buy Full Tilt?

Well, this one is already covered in this post detailing that Bitar’s Balls are an important part of the deal. I am now starting to wonder how long the happy delusion that Stars strengthening their quasi-monopolistic grip on the market is actually a good thing will last…

Annette_15 Obrestadt Signs To Lock Poker

Well, who would have thought that the poker prodigy who once won a big tournament then disappeared into obscurity would be back in the news? Joining a stable of pro players which includes a long list of names nobody has ever heard of including such HUGE names as David Zeitlin and Joe Brooks will undoubtedly raise her profile sky high. Doors  are apparently being widened at Lock HQ for health and safety reasons, in case Obrestadt and Eric Lynch need to pass each other without getting stuck…

And Finally…

Lederer and Annie Duke have apparently been talking about business with worthy news source Poker Fuse. Now, normally this kind of thing would have been an easy pick for a Melted Felt post… Sorry folks, I tried, its just that I could not bring myself to use the word ethics in the same sentence as. Annie Duke.
