Following on the positive news of our forums re-opening after being targeted for a couple months by spam bots, Poker Curious has moved to upgraded and speedier servers. We were unfortunately limited with a restrictive year long contract that greatly restricted the site over the last few months, but we are now back to the expected level of speedy navigation throughout the site. Thanks for your patience in the process.


I've noticed that non-U.S. Poker Curious members are still playing regularly on Minted Poker, so please indicate in comments if you would like me to negotiate a new Minted Poker freeroll league.  I am hopeful that the rumors of PokerStars' purchase of Full Tilt Poker, settlement with the DOJ, repayment of players and relaunch of the site could lead to an eventual resumption of our old very popular freeroll series.

I've re-opened the Poker Curious forums after a month of no spam attacks on the site. I'm not sure why they targeted the site, but let's hope they've moved on to other sites. I've noticed that Poker Curious members are playing regularly on Minted Poker, so please indicate in comments if you would like me to negotiate a new smaller Minted Poker league for non-US members.  I would be curious to see what comes of the PokerStars attempted purchase of Full Tilt as that was our original home for our popular freeroll series.

Hope springs eternal. After another period of inactivity and fighting the persistent spam bots, PokerCurious is evaluating the current signals in the online poker world. We see that non-US based members have been continuing to play on Minted Poker. So if you are interested in arranging a new poker league there I would like to hear from you.


There have also been a couple signs from Full Tilt Poker that their buyout by the French Bernard Tapie Group, settlement with the DOJ and relaunch of the site may be upcoming. As that was our original home for our popular freeroll series, (averaged over 1,000 players 4 times a week), there is the possibility with new ownership and players getting their money back that we could explore new opportunities there after they get relaunched. I would like to hear member's thoughts on whether that sounds like a good idea or not?

Due to the recent spate of spam bots flooding the Poker Curious forums and site with hundreds of spam forum and blog posts, I have temporarily made them Read Only. I have spent the last week manually deleting hundreds and hundreds of spam posts and will leave the forums Read Only until I figure out a more suitable option.


As for U.S. based players with funds on Minted Poker, which is now closed to U.S. players, I was given this short email response from Minted Poker.


"As for the U.S. situation , Everleaf no longer allow players to player from the USA and this will not change. Any player who has funds in their accounts need to contact the LGA and they will advise how to proceed."

The LGA is the Lotteries and Gaming Authority of Malta.

Their contact information is:

Lotteries and Gaming Authority

Unfortunately Everleaf network, on which Minted Poker is located, was targeted by the DOJ and has had to shut off access to U.S. based players last week disrupting the Minted Freeroll Poker League. For the final week, only non U.S. based players will be able to access the freeroll. Join us this Sunday, February 26th at 20:00 CET (2 pm EST/11 am PST) for our sixth and final week of our $65 freeroll Minted Poker Freeroll League.


I am still awaiting guidance from Minted in regards to the league and U.S. players and their funds.

Date Posted: Jan. 28, 1:23pm, 0 Comments is back up. I apologize for the miscommunication with our former server host that had the site down. I'm thrilled that we are on a new server that is quick again.

Join us this Sunday, January 29th at 20:00 CET (2 pm EST/11 am PST) for our third week of our six week $65 freeroll Minted Poker Freeroll League.


Due to the site being down, I wasn't able to send the usual newsletter announcement so only 65 members played each of the first two freerolls. That leaves excellent opportunities for third week players in the larger player pool to surge up the leaderboard.


Three more $65 freerolls will follow on each successive Sunday at the same time. The top six cumulative points leaders from the six week league will earn additional cash prizes:

1st - $35
2nd - $25
3rd - $20
4th - $15
5th - $10
6th - $5

Happy New Years all! After an extended break for the holidays in November and December we will be starting our third Minted Poker League. It will have a similar six week with extra league prizes format to the second version with the exact dates to be announced soon.


For those that have been enjoying my Social Director columns focused on the poker and Twitter world, here is my latest column - Enhancing the Value of Twitter for 2012

I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season. With all the festivities going on, I almost overlooked last week's Social Director column that gave my Twitter perspective on the heads-up battle between Chris Klodnicki and Andrew Lichtenberger in the recent Epic Poker League mix-max main event.


I'm hoping early in the new year, we can start up a new freeroll poker league on Minted. So keep an eye out for that.

For this week's Social Director column, I caught up with the latest exploits of Sam Trickett (@Samtrickett1) and David Sands (@Doc_Sands) on the tournament felt and on Twitter. Both players have had a tremendous 2011 and continue to make strides in their game.

With the holidays approaching, my contract writing is slackening so I will try to write a couple blogs that don't just pimp my article writing...
