Since the move by our Department of Justice to close down US facing poker sites, it’s been one of Two Plus Two’s top priorities to get this aspect of our industry back up and running well again. So far, even though Nevada, New Jersey, and Delaware came online, there hasn’t been much success in this area and the state of the Internet poker world in the United States remains poor. But a lot has been happening recently.
Without going into much detail, several states, including California, New York, and Pennsylvania are getting closer and closer to approving a final bill. This is great news and we hope it continues, and perhaps by the end of this month the news will be even better. And to that end, please be sure to read the “PPA July Update” by Rich Muny and to follow the latest happenings on our “News, Views, and Gossip Forum” that’s supplied by our sponsor the by Online Poker Report. This is the most up to date immediate information that’s available. For those interested, feel free to go to Online Poker Report for more detailed information. And don’t forget The Dailey Poker Action Plan that Rich Muny provides.
I also want to mention the accusations that have to do with Dr. Jacklyn Moscow, the TV show Poker Night in America, and well known poker industry person Nolan Dalla. My only comment here is that we in Two Plus Two management feel strongly that our forum is a place where all voices need to be heard and that everyone should be treated in a professional manner, especially Dr. Moscow, Mr. Dalla, and anyone else involved.
Of course, if you have an opinion, that’s what an open forum like ours is for. But please remember to treat everyone well and keep the personal insults to a minimum.
Finally, the World Series of Poker is in full swing right now here in Las Vegas. The poker rooms are packed, and there’s action for everyone whether you’re a tournament player or a cash game player. This action includes all forms of poker from the smallest to the largest stakes. So for a poker player, it’s a great time to be in Las Vegas.
