News: Czech casinos close again
We recap some stories you may have missed including William Kassouf is back and Doug Polk celebrates his birthday.
Czech casinos close again
Once again poker rooms in the Czech Republic have closed after only reopening again on December 3rd.
That does sound like it was blessed timing for the WSOP International leg, which took place yesterday.

Kassouf wins Irish Masters
One of the few advantages of no live poker in 2020 is that we have not had to listen to William Kassouf for an entire year.
He is still around the game despite some controversy in 2018 that saw him lose his sponsorship deal.
Yesterday he won the Irish Poker Masters, usually a live event but it took place at partypoker this year, for €215,163.
Polk’s birthday memory
It was Doug Polk’s birthday yesterday and he gave himself the perfect gift – another opportunity to troll Daniel Negreanu:
