HNR 5/19: Jamie Gold Busto?; WPT World Championship Starts

Jamie Gold is selling his WSOP bracelet, the World Poker Tour’s finale gets underway, and PokerStars hits a roadblock in New Jersey. It’s all in the weekend edition of the PTP Hit and Run.

WPT: The World Poker Tour’s World Championship is underway at Bellagio in Las Vegas. Will Failla had the day one chip lead. Updates here.

More with Failla:

Ivey’s downturn: Phil Ivey, who plays as “Polarizing” at Full Tilt Poker, has had a rough go of it on the virtual felt this year. So far, he is down $2.3 million. More here.

Jamie Gold confirmed busto: Or, at least he is selling his WSOP bracelet. Auction listing here.

PokerStars deal over: The court case involving PokerStars’ deal to buy the Atlantic Club in Atlantic City, New Jersey, is apparently dead after a recent court ruling against the online poker site. PokerStars issued a curt statement afterwards.

Duke’s take: Former UltimateBet pro Annie Duke released a statement after her name was brought up in audio recordings that recently surfaced in regards to the superuser scandal at UB. Duke makes what sounds like a pretty good argument against the allegations…but you can be the judge.

Quick hitters:
–The top videos and threads of the week. And some top poker training vids for good measure.
–Updates from the Spring Championship of Online Poker.
The Carnivale of Poker is back during the WSOP.
–PokerStars pro Rafael Nadal is pretty good at tennis.
–PokerStars puts an end to “bum hunting” at non-heads-up tables.
–Katie Dozier blogs about her Sunday grind.
–More reason to wonder about the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
