Wait, yeah... WTF. One by one:

I know Jeffrey Pollack had something similar to this but I think it was called the WSOP Players Advisory Committee.

Quote:

Perhaps a nod to the old World Poker Association? That thing hasn't been around for at least a decade.

Quote:

Ooooh, so close, as Madlex already noted.

Quote:

If you Google "Association of Poker Professionals," you actually get the WPA, the PPA and the short-lived PPT. Not sure why I find that funny, but I do. Someone should start the Association of Poker Professionals and they should have an app. It would be the APP app.

I'll admit, that part of the OP went right across my eyes in my first glance of this thread. Maybe because it looked right upon such a cursory skim. Hell, if someone had written...

This message is endorsed by Major League Basketball Players Association (MLBPA)
This message is endorsed by National Baseball Players Association (NBPA)
This message is endorsed by National Futbol League Players Association (NFLPA)
This message is endorsed by the National League of Hockey's Player Association (NLHPA)

...I doubt I would give it a second thought if I wasn't a sport fan.

Still, weird that nothing about those fake players' associations struck me, yet the similarity in writing in the posts of PokerHoffa and Maximus215 does.

You think casinos really care if people who make their money gambling in casinos go on strike. Regs are only tolerated. Poker may be good for publicity, but they do not make much on it.

July 31st, 2021: The Boycott (of the Strike) of the Nationwide Live Players Campaign

Some may be aware that long-time 2+2 member PokerHoffa is organizing a nationwide live poker player strike, tentatively scheduled less than 24 hours after our boycott opposing his strike.

For those participating in the boycott (of the strike), please remember to bring extra snacks with you to the poker rooms. The goal of our boycott is to fill as many poker rooms with players, so that the August 1st, 2021 strike is a failure.

We'll be paying more rake because of the increases, but at least the rooms will be full again, and PokerHoffa will feel a sense of disappointment as he sees Bravo fill up too many tables to count.

Ladies, please come! It's already going to be a sausage fest, and the smell of 100's of unwashed men sitting in the same chair for the duration of the boycott (of the strike), may be difficult. If you're not interested in playing and simply want to sit behind your man, that's great! Please consider bringing your ATM card and a few extra buy-ins just in case the fish get lucky.

See you on the 31st!

It's amazing how many people thought the OP was serious.
