Geraldine Neumann Brings You Today’s Poker News Link Dump
As most of you have heard, PartyGaming has outbid Gamynia (which would be the PERFECT name for a new African country if Africa decides to start one) to buy the World Poker Tour for $12.3 (read the WSJ’s write-up here). We haven’t made much of a big deal about this since nobody at the WPT is. Across the board we hear “business as usual” and we generally believe that. However, our quick take on it is: good for the WPT, keeps them around and viable, and gee we wonder if this means Party Poker is looking to get back in the U.S. market soon. They just bought their own version of the EPT and NBC Heads-Up/Poker After Dark. Not really complicated. Even an Argentinian super-model like Geraldine Neumann (more pics of her here) can understand that. Anyway…
Life in Argentina is about to get a whole lot better, and not just because 79% of the female population are super-models...
