Partouche Update

The Partouche Poker Tour €8,500 Main Event is down to nine players in Cannes, France. On Day 5, 18 players took their seats at the felt in hopes of making it to the final table with their eyes set on the €1,300,000 first-place prize. The field was cut in half, but the remaining nine players won't play down to a winner in the coming days, instead, the PPT has taken a page out of the World Series of Poker handbook and has decided to delay the final table until November.

Leading the way to November is Vanessa Selbst with a 3.9 million-chip stack. Just behind the Team PokerStars Pro is Fabrice Soulier with 3.6 million. European Poker Tour Grand Final High Roller winner Tobias Reinkemeier will have a bit of a challenge if he wants to add another trophy to his mantle, he comes in eighth in chips with 819,000.

Cake on the Reservations

Atlantis Internet Group Corp. announced that it has signed a licensing agreement with Cake Gaming NV, which will allow players in tribal casinos in more than 30 states to play poker online and legally. With this licensing agreement, and Cake's patent-pending Casino Gateway Network, ATIG is looking to establish a private gaming network on Indian lands.

"Our Indian version of the CGN, called the 'Tribal Gaming Network' ('TGN') offers an immediate and legal solution to Indian casinos nationwide, providing the largest online poker network in the U.S. This is a significant milestone for ATIG and Cake, and will become an immediate economical shot in the arm for Tribes and states facing deficits nationwide," CEO of ATIG Donald L. Bailey said.
