What's New in Ontario Poker?

There have been some happenings as of late in the Ontario poker world, so I started this new weekly column to give you the most important news rapid-fire. This first iteration of the column will cover more than 7 days, but after that it will be weekly reports.

Nov 6th - The KO Series is underway at 888Poker and will run until November 21st culminating in a $250 buy-in $100,000 guarantee Mystery Bounty event with a whopping $10,000 top bounty prize.

Nov 8th - Responding to player requests, 888Poker removed the timer from their popular Blast SNG format. An Ontario player took down $140,000 in one of these last month.  The SNG's will now play out like regular SNG's and not force players all-in at a pre-determined interval.
