you must know that i don't have any sort of inside info

but if i had to actually guess which states would have poker first it's pretty obvious that it's gonna be the states that already have major gambling: nevada and new jersey...and then other states that have shown interest in internet poker (such as california)

Warren... can I call you Warren?

Poker isn't coming back. Poker is here. It's everywhere Warren. It's in music , it's in a flower , the laughter of children and the eyes of a new born baby. Poker's in the sight of Christmas morning and the smell of a pretty girls hair. It's there every morning when we wake up , blue as the sky.You see Warren , poker can't come back. It never left , because it's in your heart.

Thanks for reading =)

it will never be legal in ALL states. if a federal bill passes expect at least half of the (nanny) states to opt-out. this is obivously better than our current situation b.c it's much easier to leave your state than to leave your country.

there's absolutely no way we'll be able to play legal ipoker in 2012. Barton's bill as it is stands has no chance of passing. Look for Harry Reid to introduce something soon (preferably by fall) that may have a fighting chance. If a bill is to pass it will take quite some time to put all the regulations into place. congress is vastly inefficient. 2013 would be nice but that's best case scenario imo, now isn't that depressing?

+1 everything ive read has said the Barton bill is not going to pass and that Harry Reid is putting out a bill thats supposed to be introduced sometime later this year that can have a chance to pass. It seems as if no poker bill is ever going to pass without Reid being the guy who writes it up or has his hands all over it. imo, ipoker at the federal level probably wont happen until 2013, would obv love to see it earlier...

I kind of agree with bef99hwk... I have been playing on Carbon ever since B/F and even though the fields and prizes aren't what people are used to, it still settles the urge. There's money to be made there as well and I think the fields are super soft. Ted would probably agree. He's on as well all the time, and I think there is decent money to be made there while we wait at least.

Anybody who is complaining about not being able to play poker can play poker online. Granted it's not 5k+ to first every mtt like before, but u can still play if ur urging that bad.

I started grinding these smalls sites but it's prob only a matter of time before we lose these too, right?

Move to Canada imo. (I do believe Phil Galfond is in Vancouver right now).

Some really cheap areas to live in the interior of B.C. (beautiful area w TONS of outdoor recreation... the shits for nightlife though). Apts. in the town I live in rent for as cheap as $400/mth. (I actually work part-time as a property mgr., one of the buildings has a few vacancies > $391/mth., 'heat included', 1min. walk to the bank & 7/11, 2mins. to the Columbia river (great fishing!)

I was just curious didn't Harry Reid support the orignal ban on online poker/deposits? correct me if I'm wrong. Personaly I think A bill from Ried will pass because of his involment with CEOs of Vegas casinos.

I'll say Cali will be the first state to have legal online poker

Indian casino opposition really strong against this Cali bill(something like 60 tribes). Won't happen this year...MAYBE beings too gain ground next year.

Fed level...I guess Barton bill was never implemented with expectations of it passing. They just wanted to show there'd be bi-partisan support in the House. Hopefully Reid/Kiyl can get something started in the Senate this fall and then maybe that can be completeed before whenever Congress ends in 2013.

What I'd really love too know is when these flippen geezers actually work in our government. Seems like it takes them a full year just too introduce shit bills, and then another 2-4 yeras dick swinging over it with themselves in their fancy auditouriums. These people seriously make wayy too much $ for what they actually accomplish. Seems like every other month is "recess" for these guys and then when they do actually convene not shit gets accomplished.

If you want too play, move outta the country, basically your only hope.

Yes, that asshat certainly did. His involvement with the casinos isn't what will get the bill passed, its what got the bill written.

Reid lines his pockets w/ cold-hard cash from Ceasars and other mega-casinos. Any bill he writes is basically going to be written by Vegas. I think this is a lesson to all of us unfamiliar with the political process that this is the true nature of how and why things get done - lobbying dollar$.

Reid is both a hero and a villain to us.. but we need him to step up to the plate and hit a home-run for us or soon online poker will become a forgotten trend.
