Hopefully, this will influence the U.S. that regulating does work. Just a matter of time before the U.S. will expose its true colors. Bigger concern is money, either by campaign contributions, or just the 6 billion in tax dollars. Being righteous will take a back seat to money.

This should do great stuff for bringing a new breed of fish into online poker. The UK is an absolutely huge market and TV advertising in other countries has clearly shown it has the power to draw in huge amounts of players.
Out of interest, has anyone seen any adverts yet? I didn't watch TV last night so I didn't see. I'll be on the lookout now for sure though.

Lucky we live in a monarchy where our freedom to do things like play poker are protected rather than one of those fancy new democracies

When I was in Spain and we had a fair few German TV channels... it was 24/7 poker adverts, literally. Totally insane.
