PPA is excited to announce that we will hold a town hall meeting in Las Vegas during the World Series of Poker®. The Las Vegas PPA Town Hall Meeting will be at the Rio on June 30th, immediately following the “shuffle up and deal” command – the command to be given this year by key poker supporter Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX)!

PPA Executive Director John Pappas, PPA Director of Grassroots & External Affairs Drew Lesofski, and I will be on hand for a detailed discussion on all that PPA is doing. We will be taking lots of questions and look forward to a great dialog with everyone. Please plan to attend if you are in town for the WSOP. John, Drew, and I hope to meet you there!

PPA at the WSOP

PPA will once again be attending the World Series of Poker for the largest gathering of poker players worldwide. We will be have a booth in the main hallway in the Rio Convention Center, outside the Pavilion and Amazon rooms, during the weekends of 6/15-6/17, 6/29-7/1, and 7/7-7/9 (the opening days of the Main Event). Please come by the booth to talk about the latest in the push for online poker legislation, find out what you can do to get more involved, renew your membership, and pick up a PPA patch to show everyone at the WSOP that you are proud to advocate for our rights as poker players and enthusiasts!

Make sure to check the PPA Facebook and Twitter pages for up-to-the-minute info on everything we are be doing at the WSOP , to see great pictures, and to follow our real-time take on all that is going on at the WSOP.

Action: Sign the Poker Petition

The poker petition at has over 3700 signatures in just one week. That is not bad, but I think we can get to 5000 signatures by the end of the week. Will you help me hit that target? Thanks!

  1. If you have not yet signed, please sign the petition HERE.
  2. Let’s promote the petition via the prefilled tweet HERE, by sharing the post HERE on our own Facebook walls, by any other social media you use, and by asking our friends and families to join in.
  3. Let’s start tweeting the recipients of the new poker petition: HEREHEREHEREHEREHEREHERE,HERE, and HERE.
  • I understand not everyone will choose to sign up for Facebook, Twitter, or to participate in these kinds of actions. As an alternate, I encourage reaching out to Congress via a phone call. Simply visit and scroll down to item #2 for talking points and a lookup tool for your lawmakers’ phone numbers. If you phoned your lawmakers’ Washington D.C. offices last week, please phone their district offices for this action. Thanks!
