Posted on Thursday, March 01, 2012 by "T".

About 2 weeks ago we wrote about the 19-year-old Norwegian poker player Ole-Kristian Nergard and his trip to Macau. He was running well in Macau's big game then and it seems like he's still going strong.

In fact, according to Andrew Feldman - who's also taking part in the big games, the Norwegian young-gun took home a pot of amazing 3.6 million Hong King Dollar (about USD 465,000) the other day and mucked the winning hand on the river. According to Nergard's twitter, it was the biggest pot of his poker career.

The new gambling law which upsets the whole Norwegian poker community

Tags: casino, gambling law, moneybookers, neteller, norway, poker, UIGEA
Posted on Wednesday, February 24, 2010 by "T".

A new gambling law which upsets the whole Norwegian poker community has just been passed into law by the government of Norway. The new law will make it illegal for banks in Norway to process transactions to casinos and poker/casino/betting sites outside Norway.

How they will stop people from using Neteller, MoneyBookers and other e-wallets - we will just have to wait and see. The new law will come into effect on 1 June 2010 - the same day as the US Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA) will come into effect. 

Are you afraid that similar laws will be introduced in your country?
