A federal judge in NY has ruled that poker is a game of skill, not chance and therefore does not come under the "Illegal Gaming Act."
So, with a little help we may get Congress to pass the bill needed for U.S. players to be able to play on the internet.

Nice. Found a decent article(one with a few actual details in it) on the subject at http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012...rnet-ante?lite

It all sounds very sensible...

**moved to better fitting forum and closed thread JWK24**

Here is a link to another thread on the same topic that was started earlier. I'm going to close this thread, so that we can have the conversation only in one thread instead of multiple threads on the same subject.
