The Price of Poker is Going Up
Poker.org has broken the record for the largest sale of a .org domain name ever. The deal was brokered by A-1 National Advertising and the lucky bidder was PokerCompany.com, which secured the .org domain name for $1 million.
Before this sale, the largest .org sale was for $198,000 for engineering.org. The sale of poker.org may be big for .org sites, but nothing compared to the largest .com sale, which was for Sex.com for $14 million.

Full Tilt Poker has added a new face to its Red Pro roster. Marc Karam is the newest name you'll be seeing in red on the online site.
Karam was previously sponsored by Eurolinx, but the company fell into some economic problems, and numerous players lost their entire bankrolls, including Karam.
He has been playing professionally for years now and has over $2.3 million in tournament winnings. Congratulations Marc!
