I'm not going to argue with having the man's support. He speaks intelligently and makes his case very well. I think that having him in support of online poker is going to be a good thing in the long run.
That said, anything that Harrah's/Caesars does in managing an online site is bound to rankle a few folks who are accustomed to the FTP/Stars way of doing things. I would venture a guess that either the rake would be higher or player FPPs/etc would be lower. Look at what Harrah's did do blackjack games on the Strip in Vegas. 3:2 payouts on blackjacks used to be the norm, but now the norm is that abominable 6:5 payout, which increases the house advantage considerably.
