MPN owners Microgaming yet again prove their dedication to exploring the outer limits of the social media envelope with the live streaming of the construction of their new headquarters on the Isle of Man.
The building won’t be completed until 2017, so avid live stream fans will have to wait a while before they can get to the final “watching the paint dry” stage.
MPN’s Head of Poker, Alex Scott, is really excited by the prospect, but hasn’t confirmed how many hours a day he will be dedicating to following the online coverage.

According to a PokerNews report on the Monte Carlo EPT $100k Super High Roller, Ivey joked about the case with King’s Casino owner Leon Tsoukernik.
“I’m gonna win that case, by the way,” said Ivey, after suggesting that he had done Tsoukernik a favor by not playing baccarat in his casino.
