Guantanamo Poker

The decidedly anti-poker Goodlatte Bill just passed in the U.S. House of Representatives. That is actually not a surprise. But the margin of victory is. So much work to do to keep poker legal. Otherwise, as you can imagine, in less than a year poker will totally go away (right? because if it’s the law …) … except in China and Cuba, where the governments do their best to ban visits to specific sites.

    This is not a good turn of events.
    Hopefully it will lose steam in the senate. However, it is likely that in the next year some form of this bill will be passed and the face of poker will change… or well not be as convenient.

    on an unrealated matter … did someone make you take down the comments about the “cardplayer kids” ?

    Too funny … no, i think most people know it would take A LOT for me to take down a post. however, it would take very little for me to go in for a tiny edit and accidentally hit a switch that makes the post invisible.
