    I just e-mailed the guy who wrote that Variety article and asked him if he can confirm that part about DNegs and the others being owners. He responded surprisingly fast and said that's what Poker Central told him.

    IIRC it's typically about $10k per violation. Looking back, are lots of them and some pretty lol posts

    If they do own a small percentage it will be gone soon.

    PokerCentral will probably declare bankrupcty by the end of the WSOP next year.

    If they are looking to buy Poker Media, I'm sure that Poker Road Radio is for sale.
