LAS VEGAS–As mentioned before, what will probably be the biggest convention of legal-minded poker people and poker ambassadors in the modern poker era is going down this afternoon — just as the biggest poker tournament in the history of the world gets underway. So much talk in the hallways, in the media room, in the hopitality suites, on cell phones, and at the table about various poker laws. No one is screaming the sky is falling, but there’s an underlying buzz by a noticeable percentage of people who — for reasons beyond the game itself — don’t want to see the poker party get crashed.
