iggy + bitcoin seems good but I've only tested the waters... definitely a healthy ecosystem even if bots lurk.. that's right, preflop open shoves for 100bbs.. these players still exist...

I agree with pokerhsmtt. howard is a legend in australia. Don't hate on johnny. Johnny has opened the door for play money to take over real money and poker being played and bigger than the AFL. go the eagles.

This gets recorded on a persons license so if the police pull them over they show their skilled license and alls well. one might fail at the mobile test but pass the eating test for example.

it's ridiculous atm, i should not have to drive with the same restrictions as a 78 year old lady.

I can somewhat agree on speed limits on highways(etc) but no one should be using a phone while driving. Eating should be fine as you can do that and not take your eyes off the road...

Re: TAKE ACTION: Need urgent help to keep Australian online poker. Deadline 21 July #AusFight4P

Um yeah no one should be using a phone while driving you can eat while looking at the road no one should be texting and driving, talkings fine if you're using hands free but obv not holding the phone to your ear

Why is this in the online poker thread

Hey Liberal Party you have ~5 months to get this done and prove you're a party of small government and not nanny state morons

I've asked Joey to update the thread but I believe the government wants to pass this quietly (as of the last update) and prefer that we don't make a public fuss about it - I assume Joey can update whether that is still the case or not.

Re: TAKE ACTION: Need urgent help to keep Australian online poker. Deadline 21 July #AusFight4P

Just heard that David Leyonhjelm is planning to quit federal politics so he can be involved in the NSW state election. Is this bad news for online poker in Australia? I have been trying to follow on as much as I can and it was my understanding the Leyonhjelm is integral to our cause. In the article I read he is planning on resigning as soon as next month.

i know its pretty funny, and yes our government/political system takes the piss out of all the citizens barring a few. And laws like these seem to crop up unopposed then become a social norm after 5 or so years. and all our government does is stab their own party in the backs all the time? if you have the time Google some cliffs of how many prime minister's we have gone through in the last 10 years and the reasons why we have !!!! is atrocious . it is almost like we are becoming the stereotypical country you see portrayed in the simpsons

Re: TAKE ACTION: Need urgent help to keep Australian online poker. Deadline 21 July #AusFight4P

Senator Leyonhjelm posted on fb:

Today I have announced I will leave the Senate and nominate for the NSW Legislative Council ahead of the state election on March 23. My resignation from the Senate will occur at the end of February.
NSW is nanny-state central with its liquor licensing, anti-vaping, lockouts, bicycle helmets, anti-assisted suicide and anti-motorcycle policies, amongst many others. It is also fast becoming a police state. These are issues close to my heart, and I want to try to do something about them. I am determined that the Liberal Democrats maintain the momentum that began with my election in 2013, which has led to winning seats in the WA and Victoria state parliaments. We will be announcing Senate candidates, including candidates for the Liberal Democrats NSW, within the next few weeks. I thank you for your support and look forward to serving as a much-needed voice in the NSW parliament come March 23.

I check this thread every now and then, and it seems to be always something against going forward. Is this the proverbial nail in the coffin?
