Of course internet poker is happening this year for american people
Yes, but it will be bittersweet. I'm going to miss my Eurodonks ;_;

Is there anything to stop a licesensed casino site becoming a Pokerstars skin? What a huge can of legal worms this is going to be .

Re: MGM CEO: Internet poker will happen this year

Excerpt from article from Politico yesterday:

Some expect Reid will give it one more shot and try to squeeze online gambling language into a must-pass piece of legislation, similar to what he did in 2010, said Mark Hichar, head of the gaming law group at Boston-based law firm Edwards Wildman.
He’ll get that opportunity when a payroll tax extension debate resurfaces in February, online gambling experts say.
“This is an issue that resonates with him,” said Hichar, who represents a company that helps runs several state lottery systems. “Those are his constituents and he wants to get this done for them.”
As a result of the DOJ ruling, Internet poker groups are pointing to the states as the main reason for a federal law.

Ok, so are we done playing with people from other countries when this gets fully implemented? Is there any way we can play with other countries?

Nothing has indicated that we are going to implement anything close to the system they have in France. There is a VERY big difference between taxing every pot/ buy-in and taxing every deposit.

Not in the immediate future. Maybe sometime down the line we could see countries make deals with each other but I don't see that happening for a while

because the video doesn't say anything that hasn't already been said

because "we" = some states in the United States

because the guy in the video has an interest in saying positive things about poker legislation

I, too, think it's coming, but it's not time to jerk off yet.
