Oh sorry I misinterpreted your post. Your premise was "look at how douchey my friends are amirite?" It came off as very... "here are some dudes I know and look: even though they wear this stuff they somehow are able to pull of hanging out with hot chicks like these, so lol @ you guys who think these guys might be douches".

If you were merely showing us their attire... why? We know what these people dress like. And why preface it with the comment you did?

States here cover a lot of land and also have a lot of people. I think if Texas became its own country it would be like the 5th most powerful country in the world or something ridiculous. I like that states have power here. Most publicly-traded companies register in Delaware because that state has friendly corporate laws. That's about the only thing that matters about Delaware. The USA is interesting like that.

So, in a way, if enough states demonstrate interest in having their own laws it could induce the federal gov't into action, because they don't want 20 different state laws regarding an activity the federal gov't has an interest in that obviously transcends arbitrary state lines?

Yes. But if they all pass something like NOW, then it's game over. Because the states with legal poker will not want federal interference, and the anti-gambling folks are voting against it regardless, so with every state that legalizes, you start to lose votes for a federal solution. Or at least, there's a huge risk of it.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

I think it's totally dead once the first state legalizes it in a way that basically lets it be run by the state lottery.

If California goes soon, with no one else immediately following, I personally think that is optimal. Big bad liberal Cali may get enough republicans to vote for it in order to feel like they have control. Would be an ideal window.

But honestly, I don't think federal will happen at this point. My gut says the current congress is too dysfunctional and there's no way something as controversial as this gets passed.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

If something was going to happen on a federal level it would have by now. The blackout bill a couple years back was the last viable chance. A lot of states are already setting ipoker bills in motion or have already passed (didn't Delaware and/or New Hampshire pass?) and you'd have to imagine Nevada and New Jersey signing into law will push others into quickly getting legislation in motion

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

The good news is that these first few states are all looking to create a joint liquidity pool, which will really encourage all that follow to do the same.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

More importantly, now that the casinos already have what they want (a Nevada regulated ipoker with potential interstate compacts with a barrier to entry for stars), why would they bother trying to get Ried to push through some sham federal bill

Douchey horse racing attire ITT. From the Dubai World Cup last year - the world's richest horse race.

With the trophy in the winner's circle





The band!



Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai. To his right is Bob Baffert, perhaps the best known horse racing trainer currently active.



In the tunnel that the horses use to enter the track



Below the Burj Khalifa



From the top. The bottom look like little models.



Note the building wrapped with what I recall to be the Sheikh and his son

Nah, the big money casinos would much rather have a federal bill. Way more revenue and likely a lower weighted average tax rate. Plus, it would likely help keep Stars out of the market for at least a period, which would be huge.

Is a federal bill necessary for interstate poker?

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

The DOJ opinion suggests that federal is not necessary for interstate compacts and states are acting accordingly.

Clark,

What's Adelson's deal re: igaming? I haven't been able to figure out what he's trying to do by opposing fed legislation.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog & FREE MONEY!!!

I think it's equal parts "doesn't like it from a moral perspective" (many people I know at the Sands verify this part) and "doesn't want to deal with a new business (iGaming) while harvesting money from his Asian B&M casinos".

But never fear, he's got more money than most and if it gets passed he will quickly get over his moral objections and try to buy his way to the top. But as of now the Sands is very likely way behind the curve on iGaming due to his objections.
