The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office and state Highway patrol assisted.”

“It is illegal in North Carolina, I understand that. In every state, whether it’s legal or not, people are playing poker.” Gracz said it’s silly that he can’t play poker in North Carolina when he can travel just a few hours and play legally elsewhere. Gracz won $1.5 million during a cruise at the PartyPoker.com Million Tournament in 2005. He also writes poker tips on CBS Sportsline.com and his own Web site.”

“The Poker Players Alliance keeps gaining in members, and now the organization may be adding a board member who could go a long way toward helping the group gain even more support. John Pappas, PPA executive director, posted a message on the 2+2 Forums in which he said he’d asked prominent forum member Rich Muny (TheEngineer) to take a seat on the PPA board of directors, and Muny has agreed.”
