Online Poker Legislation

Where will online poker be in the year to come?  Does MyDD think that it is a doomed industry?  Do the people here believe that it should be banned?  I thought my site was a step in the right direction for the industry.  A true sign that 'poker professional' was becoming a respectable career path with coaches out there working to improve the business acumen of these individuals.  No one wants to work in an illegal industry.  What will happen?  Does anyone have insight into the process that is required to fully ban poker?  I know that the banks can no longer process online gaming transactions, what about arresting citizens in their homes for clicking 'bet'? Thank you for your opinions.

Re: Online Poker Legislation

Frist is an asshole. That bill didn't get much play around here but on all the gambling sites it's been the sole topic since last Friday, when Frist stuck the internet gambling bill on a port security bill at literally the last minute and it passed in the wee hours of the final session.

I'm not an online poker player but this also changes online sports betting since transactions are impacted. Some people are panicking while others insist it won't be enforced. My impression is it's much worse for poker than sports but I don't know the specifics.
