Posted on 03 June 2014 by "T".

In May 2009, Mike "The Mouth" Matusow released his autobiography Check-Raising the Devil, a book that has it all: drugs, sex, partying, jail, suicidal depression, bipolar bouts and world champion poker. From the beginning the plan was to make a weekly TV-series of Check-Raising the Devil, but now it seems like it will be made into a movie instead!

The fact is that the production company 1984 Professional Defence Contractors (The Grey with Liam Neeson, Killing Them Softly with Brad Pit, etc.) already has started working on the photoplay of his book! It will be produced by Adi Shakar, Spencer Silna and David Islan, and apparently they have had talks with potential actors for the movie. According to a Swedish poker site, Mike Matusow said in an interview at the 2014 WSOP that Nicolas Cage is interested in the role as him!

The poker boom is still to occur in China. Many betting companies have tried to get into the Chinese gambling market, and also tried to get a poker boom going like it did in the rest of the world a few years ago. But so far not with such a great success. So what is preventing poker to grow in China? First off, China is not officially open to online poker sites, and the current laws are unclear as to the punishments or reprimand that face players and providers of online gaming. Another reason is the deposit options.

Many Chinese banks and credit card companies will not allow direct deposits to online gaming companies, and the ones that allow them to deposit usually charges big fees. To this date, Neteller, and other popular online payment services do not accept transfers from Chinese citizens. There you have the 2 of the main reasons why the poker boom in China still hasn't occured. So, what can start the poker boom in China when so many things are preventing people there from playing? A poker movie is maybe the answer?!
