Nevada gambling regulators have given preliminary approval to a system linking online poker websites in order to create a larger player pool. The technology operated by Gibraltar-based 888 Holdings would link players from a planned online poker site operated by the Treasure Island Casino and WSOP.com, which is run by Caesars Interactive Entertainment. It would also include a separate 888 online poker room connected to Treasure Island.
A larger pool would theoretically attract more players. Officials said the network could be a model for a system linking players in Nevada and Delaware. The two states have legalized online poker within their borders and have agreed to set up interstate play.

If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
