Rich Muny of the PPA is on today's 2+2 Pokercast talking specifically about this bill and explains how the proposed open market system would be comepletely different than what has occurred in France.

The problem in France was that the players had no voice in the regulation process at all. The playerrs voice is being heard through every step of this process and should result in a different landscape

Also, AFAIK there is no proposal for a system wherein only US players would play against each other domestiaclly. All proposals of for regulation of international poker sites.

Yes but there is or was an opt out clause where each state could decide if they wanted to allow it. I'll be sunk then in the great progressive state of Alabama

What about the point that he makes about legalizing online poker circumventing state and local laws? That kinda seems like a good point, as much as I hate this guy...

Re: House Financial Services Committee Markup on HR 2267 (markup on HR 2267 now!)

First amendment by Sherman of CA, sites who have intentionally broken B&M or Internet gaming laws can not get a license.

Amendment passes by voice vote.

Second amendment by King of NY:

Prohibits sportsbetting on the amendment, except for horseracing.

strengthens the probability of the bill getting passed, IMO.

They are talking about sportsbetting, what about excluding poker from UIGEA? Sorry I'm not sure how all this stuff works..will this be addressed?

The gentleman from Alabama seems to think poker sites are paying people to blog against him.

Maybe someone on Mr. Bachus' staff read one of the threads in NVG.

Actually, the amendment should guarantee Party stays out. They are the only site that has actually pled guilty to any violation of law. Neither FTP or PS has done that, nor have they been convicted of anything.
