Our next book, Harrington on Modern Tournament Poker; How to Play No-Limit Hold ’em Multi-Table Tournaments by Dan Harrington and Bill Robertie is now at the printer. This means that we should see copies around the middle of the month, and the first ones to receive the book will be those who ordered through our 2+2 store.
Also, for those who are interested in what this book has to offer, we’re running another excerpt in this issue of our magazine. Just check the index and then start reading.
On a different note, the fight to legalize Internet poker continues. It’s our understanding that California is now close to passing a bill, which will be great if this happens. However, there is also a dark cloud on the horizon. In Congress, Senator Lindsey Graham is now sponsoring a bill that would make all Internet gambling illegal, and this bill, as I understand it, would roll back the Internet poker sites that now exist in the three states of Delaware, Nevada, and New Jersey.
So does this bill have a chance to pass? Well, we hear that’s it unlikely, but if we go back to 2006, we also were under the impression that The Unlawful Internet Gambling and Enforcement Act (UIGEA) had little chance. In fact, we even met with a representative from Party Poker a couple of days before the UIGEA to discuss possible advertising on www.twoplustwo.com, and this obviously never happened because of the passage of this bill.
So why do I bring this up? Well, Senator Graham is up for reelection this year, and there is a Republican primary in June. Now since 2+2 is located in Nevada, we don’t know much about the other candidates, so at this point in time we don’t have anyone to recommend. But we do hope that those of you who participate at 2+2, live in South Carolina, and are also registered Republicans who can vote in this primary, take a good look at the other candidates, and hopefully find someone to vote for who is not fighting against our cause.
