Re: PPA should fire Annie Duke

No, Emporer, you are the one who misses it.

Even if I agree (I dont know honestly) that AD is a despicable person and poker player, that does not mean that we should shun her when she is doing...

Re: Should the PPA accept membership/backing from bot providers/users?

Phil153's post above should pretty much close this issue.

The board dispute will, I am sure, live on. But that debate belongs (and already exists in many forms) elsewhere.

Re: Thanks for Pokerroom\'s Invitation to US players to visit TruePoker

Dear PokerRoom Rep.

I called your post BS for precisely one reason, I will explain it again in detail and would appreciate a specific response.

I work with people I dont personally like every day; if its good or necessary for my business, I put up with it and feel no need to mention it.

Re: Legal Advice Alabama

I would start with something along the following lines:

1) form a real social club - have a name, bylaws and a formal membership roll, possibly dues to cover expenses like rent and such.
2) get...

Re: PokerRoom refuses to cashout US player

The above post by Pokerroom contains a lot of BS. I used to play there and liked the site, I never will again.

Re: Finding legal council for a (US) poker player

Re: PokerRoom refuses to cashout US player

There is nothing in the UIGEA that makes transfers from a gambling site to a US person illegal. They at least have not claimed otherwise.

The problem is they have no US bank or other system to...
