We know we told you about Sam Chauhan and his newest pupil Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal the other day, but his track record is really something that should be looked at again.
The World Poker Tour World Championship is down to 10 players at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. Josh Arieh, one of Chauhan's pupils, just missed the final 10, when finished in 16th place, good for a $47,033 payday. Phil Hellmuth, who has the shortest stack of the 10 left, has been working with Chauhan for a while and is looking to make back-to-back final tables. David Williams, who has been working with Chauhan for just a few weeks now, well he's fourth on the leaderboard with close to 2.5 million in chips. Where do we sign up again?
Making the Move
The Cake Network has moved to Malta and was recently issued a letter of intent in regards to its application for a gaming license. By making this move, the Cake Network will be able to offer current or future network partners the option of being regulated by Malta or under Cake's gaming license in Curacao.
"We are excited about being in a position to offer our existing and future partners licensing through the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority. This will greatly assist existing partners as they undertake further marketing within the European region and allow existing European White listed operators the opportunity to take advantage of the Cake Network's suite of services," Director of Marketing for Cake Network Andrew Turner said.
