Dan United States Vote coming today in New Hampshire about i-gaming. According to CardPlayer, "The Associated Press reported that the New Hampshire House is voting Wednesday on whether the state should expand gambling. In an effort to keep pace with neighboring Massachussets, the bill would allow 5,000 slot machines and 150 table games at an already existing gambling facility."

Dan United States We still have a ways to go for legalized online gambling in New Hampshire. According to CardPlayer and the Concord Monitor, "New Hampshire's casino bill is in the House after recently passing the Senate, but its road to success remains unclear because of complex discussions on how to regulate. 'What is surprising to me is that (the bill's sponsors and writers) don't learn,' Rep. David Hess, who has led the House fight against casinos, told the Concord Monitor. 'There are the same defects and the same omissions year after year, despite the fact that we point this out in committee (discussions) and on the House floor.'"

Dan United States Okay, this is pretty ridiculous. According to CardPlayer, "Thanks to social media, authorities in New Hampshire have caught the man alleged to have violently robbed a 64-year-old of $80 right outside a poker room, Exeter Patch reported. The crime, which resulted in the victim suffering a facial fracture, took place two weeks ago. The victim reportedly told his attacker that he was having a heart attack in order to get him to stop beating him up. It worked, and the suspect fled the scene with the small sum." Posted Feb 16th
Portsmouth, New Hampshire, United States There is legislation pending in New Hampshire to finally allow its charity card rooms to deal NL cash games (with a $150 max buy-in). The bills are HB 459 (house bill 459) and SB 61. You can check on the status of the bills through this website: http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/ . You can also use this site to figure out who your reps are and send them emails, letters, or calls indicating your support for these bills.
There will be a House committee meeting on HB 458 tomorrow and I will be there to speak in favor. Anyone else in the Concord, NH area who can should attend (its in the Legislative Office Building behind the state house, room 202 at 10:00 AM).
The casino bill has also finally been filed, it is HB 665. There is also a bill to give certain places (like the racetracks) slot machines, it is HB 678.
