some country politics on the "gambling" are awful, senseless and really really stupid
Goverments could make loads of money from it but they dont...I really couldnt understand why...how, ect! I mean, to do not legalize the gambling must be an hidden reason which makes their interest
Dunno how they are so blind to dont understand poker is a skill games either a card game...
Italy is the same, they firstly legalize the online poker closing it in the .it communuty so to "eat" profit with taxes missing the point that they leading it to definitely the death of the game.
Absurd and nonsense rake (80% to them of course) which means hard life to the regs that loose 5bb/100 of rake only, less fishes of course because of the closed market and loads of useless e (potential scammers) PRs and major skins,,,,
ESspana the same, France
the same, US limited to some only, ect ect ect
And then, coolest advertisements running on TV are about lotteries ect... win for your life yesssss, win with the same odds
a meteorite hitting the hearth .
...dunno wat to think about
EDIT: for live poker is the same (italy). Real money
games only allowed in 3 casinos
which are located in the north of Italy only (1,8k km far from the bottom south). All the cards room declared illegal since the play real money. Cash game avoided (ok, here I may agree in some way) and tournament poker same.
The NLHM is a game at the moment pretty notorious, people wanna play and cards rooms are continuosly shut down and players accused and sometimes charged and fined for it (even if catch playing 5$ games they risk a PENAL process). Unbelievable!!
Luckily I am a UK resident atm. Glad of that. I wiluldnt be neither on this forum instead
