Well at least it is a start! Nevada has a online poker site which will legitimately allow online poker players to be allowed to live in the US and deposit money to play. This sound weird since US players have been playing for a long time. The problem was the FBI and other bodies didn’t like the way players were by passing the law so they closed most down with threats and action as was seen on ‘Black Friday’.
The only problem is that you have to live in Nevada and play on Ultimate Poker website. So unless there is a sudden migration to Nevada, poker players who do not live in Nevada will have to do things in which they will be seen as being Nevada based players. Like I said, it is a start.
From what I have read it does not seem to be a rip roaring success at the moment, quelle surprise! But as long as everything goes right and there is no major botch up – and with this we are talking about Ultimate Poker who do have a history of almighty cock ups – the Americans could be set free to participate in the purest form of capitalism known to man.
