New Poll: What Will Dec. 1 Bring?

by , Nov 13, 2009 | 7:22 am

That’s what we wanna know … do you think this UIGEA enforcement deadline is gonna pass with out much ado? Efforts to delay this by a year seems to be the current push … though that’s essentially running it through the executive branch … a lotta different interests in play there. And, of course, Congress is still in session … do you see any chance that anyone can close the deal through legislative means? Barney?

Here’s the PPA ED John Pappas giving a little more insight on what this date means to the folks in Washington DC, and what the PPA is doing to fight it. But damn, with the clock having been called, will it be enough?

Don’t forget to vote — right over there, on your right. I mean sheeyot, if you can’t click a button a couple inches away … then maybe we’re due to get exactly what we deserve?

Look for tells on Pappas’ face for any reads on how he might really see the situation.

    That was a really good video and much better than the normal “zomg, the sky is falling” stuff. The sky has indeed been falling for a number of years related to poker but it there is one thing poker players have proven is that they are willing to fade the heat to continue to play the game online.

    Besides, poker is not covered under this law, the only reason that hasn’t been proven out is because no one wants to be the fall guy.

    The regs have been out for a long time. I think compliance is already in place. The only area of the regs that look problematic is ACHs (bank transfers). PokerStars’s are still going fine though (Full Tilt is having some problems lately, most sites have never used them). I just don’t see December 1 changing things much.
