PKR Brain Research Story

This Is Your Brain on Poker
The online poker firm is known for being innovative, but their latest venture is blazing an entirely new kind of trail.

The "R.I.G.T." Controversy

Is R.I.G.T. the Right Solution?  
The hot story in the United Kingdom is the new initiative by Sports Minister Gerry Sutcliffe to turn what is now a voluntary contribution to a problem gambling charity into a mandatory fee for the industry. Reportedly, this new rule was inspired because the current voluntary nature of the fund wasn't meeting financial objectives. The new rule may go into effect as soon as this coming June. As expected, a huge round of criticism greeted this news. So what do you think? Visit the CAP Forums and let us know!
