Sunday Nugs: California Ready for Online Poker?, Full Tilt's Big Announcement, KevMath aka LA Celebrity, and Nevada's Internet Poker Regulation Bills

Sunday afternoon. First day after the time change. More sunlight in America, but lots of darkness in the land of the Rising Sun.

Indulge in these newsworthy nugs during the Sunday grind, or while wading through March Madness Bracketology, or if you're reading this on Monday morning while killing time at the office, well, enjoy...
$100,000 buy-in events? Full Tilt Poker will be launching their own uber-high stakes tournament series that will compete against the Federated Poker League and PokerStars' regional poker tours. (Wicked Chops Poker)

KevMath wrote up his Commerce experiences when he visited Los Angeles to play in the WPT Celebrity Invitational. Love the pic with the iPad. (From the Rail)

On the politics front... Nevada introduced a bill to regulate internet poker. They actually had three bills going. (Pokerati)

On the municipal front, California is considering online poker again. Don't know how serious this effort will be, but, California is so broke that they are worse off than Eskimo Clark at the end of the WSOP. They gotta come up with money somehow -- marijuana or online poker -- which one is it going to be? (Sacramento Bee)

The 2011 SCOOP schedule is out and about. Time to play a few satellites. (PokerStarsBlog)

That's it for now. Back to fear mongering over at Tao of Fear. NGTFOOMO!
