Six million ways to fly

The Sunday Million is undoubtedly the richest online poker tournament in the history of the game. 

The weekly $215 buy-in tournament has grown exponentially since its inception six years ago, and to celebrate its sixth birthday, PokerStars are laying on a massive $6 million guarantee on the 11th March.

You can win your seat from as little as $1, and satellites are running in the lobby now. Alongside the $6 million guarantee, the lucky winner will walk away with at least $1 million.

Negreanu blogs again

MGM expects US legalisation this year

MGM Resorts International Chief Executive Officer Jim Murren expects "legalization of online poker at a federal level sometime this year", according to Reuters.

Murren explained that the complication of the issue is not what's hindering possible regulation, instead arguing that "Washington is becoming more complicated."

He confidently announced that MGM would "be one of the first horses out of the gate when it's approved."
