Well, no. Poker as a whole is not banned here, just our access to the online
version of it. Furthermore, the NBC Heads Up telecast's primary sponsor was not an online poker site. So if anything, this is one of the few poker shows whose continued airing does not surprise me. It is less reliant on backing from one of the big online sites, unlike The Big Game and Poker After Dark, which are
adverts for online poker.
