The authors of the best-selling book “Freaknomics – The Hidden Side of Everything” have turned their attention to online poker for their latest podcast.
In an episode entitled “Why Online Poker Should Be Legal” economist Steve Levitt discusses his love of poker and his research into the game. The academic argument boils down to the old chestnut of whether poker is a game of luck or a game of skill and the professor is very much in favour of the latter.Levitt talks about his recent research on poker including “The Role of Skill Versus Luck in Poker: Evidence from the World Series of Poker” and “Is Texas Hold-’Em a Game of Chance? A Legal and Economic Analysis.” Most of the areas covered in the podcast will be common knowledge to poker players but it's still well worth a listen. It's available to download via the iTunes store or at www.Freakonomics.com.

Things are really starting to heat up at this year’s WSOP with a number of events all now ensuring the riffling of chips doesn’t stop echoing through the halls of The Rio. Indeed, yesterday’s early session saw two bracelet winners crowned in the form of John Beauprez and Mike Gorodinsky.

While most attention has understandably been focussed on Wembley these past few days there was the not so small matter of the latest leg of the Grosvenor UK Poker Tour (GUKPT) to consider over the weekend.
